Cam Newton has style and grace, and the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback puts it to good use when it’s most needed. Scope out this insane leap over a defender into the end zone. It’s not just impressive because it’s a flip. It’s stunning because Newton’s ease of execution is so flawless, it briefly seems like he’s trying to hide the fact that he’s a superhero in order to play football for fun. Seriously, the whole act looks green-screened. If he hadn’t got hit by that second defender on his way down, Newton would’ve landed with the precision of a tiny Russian gymnast.
Most importantly, thanks to this SB Nation gif, you can see that nobody enjoyed Newton’s flip more than Newton himself.
