Newton throws for NFL rookie record 432 yards
Panthers' Newton throws for NFL rookie record 432 yards, most yards in 1st 2 NFL games
By The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) ' Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton set some more NFL rookie records and briefly held a mark for all quarterbacks.

Newton passed for 432 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the most ever in a single game by a rookie. He has 854 yards passing through two games, another rookie record, and for a few hours that stood as the most by any quarterback in the first two weeks of the season.

Then New England's Tom Brady broke the mark again later in the day with 940. The previous record was 827 by Kurt Warner in 2000.



Newton tied the rookie single-game record by throwing for 422 yards in last week's loss at Arizona, which was also a league record for a rookie in his professional debut.

Newton completed 28 of 46 passes with one touchdown in the 30-23 loss to the Packers.

Packers nose tack B.J. Raji had one of fours sacks of Newton, and says "I knew he would be good, but if I told you I knew he'd be this good this early, I'd be lying to you."
