2-Minute Warning: Super Cam is back and other must-see plays from yesterday's NFL

If you only have two minutes to catch up on the best plays from Sunday’s NFL action, this is the place to be.

Cam Newton is back!

After a sluggish start to his second season in the NFL, the Heisman winning quarterback reminded us all what he is capable of with this 72-yard touchdown to help Carolina kill off the Falcons.

Oh yeah.. he finished it off with a dive into the endzone befitting his scoring celebration.

RG3 is down. Step forward, Kirk Cousins

Newton’s heir as the most exciting rookie QB, Robert Griffin III had this happen to him…

… Griffin tried to carry on, and managed to move the chains on one leg before he broke down again (reports this morning indicate the knee is sprained and he could be fit for next Sunday). But it didn’t matter to the result as another rookie, Kirk Cousins came off the bench and slipped  seamlessly into the Redskins’ gameplan.

Here’s his post-match reaction to first throwing an arcing touchdown pass for Pierre Garcon and then levelling the scores with a two-point conversion before Washington beat Baltimore in over time.

Giants going All. The. Way.

New York Giants ended up blitzing New Orleans 52-27, but they needed this 97-yard return to get them off and running in the first quarter.
