With the Carolina Panthers four yards away from scoring, the Kansas City Chiefs knew that Cam Newton was going to run. The 2015 NFL MVP just didn’t let that stop him.

The Chiefs had the play read perfectly. Any other quarterback (and most running backs) would have been stopped in the backfield. But Newton is not a normal player. He scored with ample room to spare.
Following a 1-5 start, it will be tough for Carolina (now 3-5) to make the playoffs. But if Newton is going to play like this, the task gets far more achievable.
