Curtis Samuel breaks defenders ankles with juke, finishes off huge gain with impressive power
Curtis Samuel is having a remarkable season and put up one of his most impressive runs of the year against Carolina on Sunday!
Samuel caught only four balls for 42 yards last week against the Green Bay Packers, but he led the team with nine targets and now has at least nine targets in four of his past six games.
The former Ohio State Buckeye is having a career year for the Carolina Panthers, and Samuel is the only receiver in the NFL with more than 500 receiving yards and 130+ rushing yards. Against Denver he caught seven passes on nine targets for 68 yards, adding another 22 yards on the ground.
Samuel has four touchdowns in his last seven games, and he’s had 68 receiving yards or more in three of his last four games.
On a first down play during the second quarter of Sunday’s game with Washington, Samuel broke free with some stellar moves for a 45-yard run to the Washington 6-yard line. The run set up an eventual Mike Davis 1-yard touchdown run to put the Panthers up 13-0.
