It didn’t take long for Cam Newton to make an impact with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Newton ran for a touchdown as he appeared in a goal-line package against the Arizona Cardinals. After crossing into the end zone, Newton yelled “I’m back!” He explained to reporters why he had such a passionate outburst upon scoring his first touchdown for the Panthers since 2018. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct.

In his first opportunity, Newton lined up in the shotgun formation from the Cardinals’ 2-yard line. He rolled to his right and barreled his way into the end zone for the Panthers touchdown.

Not too much longer after the first touchdown, Newton got his hands into the scoring again. This time, he dropped back to pass and found Robby Anderson in the end zone.

It was Newton’s first touchdowns as a member of the Panthers since the 2018 season. He only played in two games in 2019 before being lost for the season due to injury. He didn’t score in either of the first two games of the 2019 season.
