CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers quarterback Cam Newton broke Peyton Manning's single-season rookie record for most yards passing in a season Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Manning's record was 3,379 yards.

Newton came in needing 18 yards to break the record and did it with a 7-yard completion to Brandon LaFell on the game's first drive. Newton was 3 of 3 on the opening drive for 20 yards as the Panthers scored on a nine-play, 80-yard touchdown drive.
