Superman continues to fly high.
Legendary Auburn quarterback Cam Newton broke a pair of Steve Young’s NFL rushing records in the first half against Denver. Newton’s second quarter score broke Young’s record for career rushing touchdowns by a quarterback (44) and games with a passing and rushing touchdown (32).

Young played 14 years in the NFL, but Newton broke the record in the first game of his sixth season. With over 21,000 total yards and 160 touchdowns to his name, the records will only keep falling as his career goes on. SEC fans certainly remember the all-time great season Newton posted in 2010, when he led Auburn to the national championship and won the Heisman Trophy.
Newton’s Carolina Panthers lead the Denver Broncos 17-7 at the half of the opening game of the NFL season. He has 147 total yards and a pair of touchdowns at the half.
