Quarterback Cam Newton led Carolina Panthers to a 24-17 home win over the Houston Texans yesterday.
The fifth-year Panthers starter threw for 195 yards and two touchdowns. On the ground he rushed for another 76 and produced highlight-reel, somersaulting score.
"My heart was in my socks," Newton said. "As I was flipping I was like, 'Hey, I don't know how this is gonna end.' And then I'm coming down I said, 'Hey, I can stick this.' I didn't stick it, but I think I still got a good high rating by the judge."
