Watch: Cam Newton front-flips into end zone for touchdown

Sunday September 20th, 2015

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton usually channels Superman whenever he celebrates a touchdown.

On Sunday, Newton channeled the superhero while still on the field.

Newton scored an incredible front-flip touchdown against the Houston Texans to put Carolina ahead 17–10 near the end of the third quarter. Newton was running from the eight-yard line when he saw a Texans defender, launched himself up and over the player, flipping forward and landing on his feet.


The Panthers kept their lead at seven entering the fourth.
