Who doesn't enjoy a highlight of one man taking on an entire NFL defense and winning? Especially when that defense is the New England Patriots, and that man is Cam Newton.

Bill Belichick must have been stewing more and more with every missed tackle. This goes from a 10-yard loss, to near disaster as Cam retreats back as far as the 20-yard line, only to somehow end up being a 14-yard gain.

"Superman" deserves all the credit in the world for this. His elusiveness and awareness were on full display in this 2013 showdown, and this play proved to be a crucial one. Newton's third-down conversion paved the way for the Panthers to take a 17-10 lead on this drive.

The Panthers would go on to win this one, 24-20, but they couldn't have pulled it off without this legendary play from Newton.
