Last week, former Auburn Tigers National Champion and Heisman Trophy-winning Quarterback now with the Carolina Panthers Cam Newton set an NFL first day passing record, throwing for 422 yards in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Today, Newton did it again.

Some said Newton would not play “that way” against the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers, but he not only did, Cam set another record.

According to the NFL’s press release, the first pick of the 2011 NFL Draft threw for 432 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions, along the way throwing for the most passing yards by a player in the first two weeks of a season, only to be topped by none other than New England Patriots QB Tom Brady later this day. Brady passed for 920 yards in two games; Newton threw for 854 passing yards today.

But while Cam may have fell behind the great Tom Brady, he set another record against the Packers: Newton now holds the NFL single-game rookie record of 432 yards, according to the NFL. And, as the NFL explains Cam is “the first player in league history with back-to-back 400-yard passing games to begin a career and his 854 passing yards are the most ever by a player in his first two NFL games.”
