The Carolina Panthers’ Cam Newton broke the NFL record for most career rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in the Super Bowl era during Thursday’s opener against the Denver Broncos. Newton recorded his 44th career rushing touchdown with a 2-yard run in the second quarter. He passed Hall of Famer Steve Young for the No. 1 spot on the list and tied Otto Graham’s record set in the early 1950s before the merger.
