Cam Newton Had to be Separated From the Dolphins After Patriots Win
Cam Newton won his first NFL game since 2018 on Sunday as he guided the New England Patriots to a 21-11 victory over the Miami Dolphins. After the game, he had to be separated from Dolphins defensive lineman Christian Wilkins and a few of his teammates as several players jawed at each other.
Here's video of the incident:
Newton and Elandon Roberts were talking a bit after the game, then several Dolphins also walked over and engaged. Newton and a few Dolphins defensive lineman had apparently been talking all day so this was just the culmination of that. At one point, Shaq Lawson tried to snatch a chain off of Newton as well.
I'm not sure angering Newton is the right strategy here. On Sunday he was 15-for-19 for 155 yards, while rushing 15 times for 75 yards and two touchdowns. And that was his first week in the Patriots' offense. He's only going to get better.
