Congratulations: Cam Newton Ties NFL Record With Balleriffic Performance In His First Game

All those critics seem awfully quiet this morning…

Cam Newton’s pro career began on the same field where his electric college career ended.

And just like the BCS title game in January, Newton was flinging the ball all over University of Phoenix Stadium and leading his offense up and down the field.

While confetti fell on Newton after Auburn beat Oregon for the national championship, there would be no storybook ending for the Panthers’ quarterback Sunday.

He’ll have to settle for tying the best passing performance by a rookie in NFL history.

Brushing off criticism that he could not succeed as a pro passer, Newton shredded the Arizona secondary for 422 yards and accounted for all three of the Panthers’ touchdowns. But the Cardinals took advantage of secondary and special teams breakdowns by the Panthers to claim a 28-21 victory and spoil the debut of the No. 1 draft pick.

Newton broke the record held by Peyton Manning (302) for passing yards by a rookie in Week 1 and equaled Matthew Stafford’s record total for rookies. Stafford, the No. 1 overall pick of Detroit, threw for 422 yards against Cleveland in Week 10 in 2009.

Play on playa, we see you!
