Pats fans will be excited to have Cam Newton back today after missing out on only one game, against Kansas City. Newton appears excited to be back himself after posting his latest video on social media. The Patriots were supposed to play against Denver last week, but since it got postponed, Newton had extra time to recover after testing positive for the coronavirus. Newton can set a new mark on NFL history today if he has a half decent game. Newton only needs 245 passing yards and 45 rushing yards to become the first quarterback in NFL history with 30,000 passing yards and over 5,000 rushing yards in a career.
Randall Cunningham was the closest to this feat but retired just shy of hitting those marks with 29,979 yards in the air and 4,928 on the ground.
Cam Newton needs 245 passing yards and 45 rushing yards to hit 30K & 5K respectively for his career.
No other in NFL history has hit both of those marks, closest being Randall Cunningham (29,979 / 4,928).
