Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton made one of the most spectacular plays of his NFL career in September, scoring on a 2-yard quarterback draw by doing a full front flip into the end zone over a hapless Houston Texans defender. The Panthers edged Houston 24-17 in their home opener to move to 2-0.

Days after Newton went head over heels into the end zone against Houston, “The Flip” was still getting a lot of buzz in NFL circles. And now, The Sporting News has named it one of the Top 5 runs of the NFL season so far. See the video of all five runs below.
