Cam Newton seemed to be on a easy stroll to the end zone, when all the sudden this happened.
Love seeing Cam Newton pay for being cocky by taking that big hit. Smiling running looking at the guy chasing him.

The kid-like Newton seemed to be hot-dogging it to the endzone, with his eyes on the defender who couldn’t catch his on the bootleg, when a Saints defender cam up and leveled the QB with a helmet to helmet hit, that could have been called a penalty. Newton appeared to be a little wheezy before getting up and returning to the huddle.
Newton made his way to the Panthers locker room after the possession (which ended up with a TD tossed from Cam) for reasons which seem to be connected to the hit he took on the play.
