Carolina’s Cam Newton is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league, having won an MVP and reached a Super Bowl in his first five years in the NFL. Now in his sixth season, Newton has continued to etch his name in the record books.
On Sunday against the Chiefs, Newton reached 20,000 career passing yards. He became the fifth-youngest quarterback to reach that mark, joining some elite company. Only Drew Bledsoe, Peyton Manning, Matthew Stafford and Dan Marino were younger when they reached 20,000.
