1. The Carolina Panthers had already taken a 16-0 lead over the conference-leading Atlanta Falcons when Cam Newton decided to step things up a notch.
2. On a designed running play, the Panthers’ super-athletic QB takes off, heading for the sideline.
3. Newton manages to turn the corner and outrun the Falcons defense. Remember: he’s a quarterback, and he still runs like this.
4. With 20 yards to go, Cam leaves the last three defenders in a heap and dives into the end zone, finishing a 72-yard run.
5. I mean, that flip is the coolest.

7. Here’s the whole thing in one long GIF. Newton ended the day with 403 yards and 3 touchdowns rushing and passing.
