The Carolina Panthers are set to take on the division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon in a match up of two red hot teams, and Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be looking to draw some extra power from a popular super hero.
We are used to seeing Newton with his Superman celebrations and the Superman logo on various parts of his uniform accessories, but this week Newton will be rocking some Batman cleats for the game.
Here is a photo of the cleats, via UK End Zone on Twitter:

Newton is wearing his traditional Under Armour cleats, but the added Batman logo is a nice touch.
The Panthers signal-caller has been playing like a super hero throughout the team’s winning streak that has led them to be the hottest team in the league, so hopefully the Batman cleats will continue to bring him some good luck.
The two teams are kicking off at 1 p.m. ET.
