Watch: Panthers QB Cam Newton nearly hits lineman in head on TD pass

Sunday December 13th, 2015

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton showed off his arm strength on a four-yard touchdown pass to tight end Ed Dickson in the second quarter of his team’s game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, zipping a pass right over the heads of his offensive lineman. 

The pass was actually so close to guard Andrew Norwell and a Falcons defensive tackle, that just a few inches further down or to the left would have resulted in a deflected ball.

The touchdown pass was one of three for Newton on the day. He finished 15 of 21 passing with 265 yards before being pulled for back up Derek Anderson with the score 38–0 in the Panthers favor.
