The Carolina Panthers clinched the #1 seed in the NFC for the first time in their history Sunday, which was a totally appropriate cause for celebration.
Cam Newton decided to take a post game victory lap of sorts around the field greeting the Panther faithful in the first row with high-fives, when Buccaneers fans thought it would be a smart idea to flaunt their Tampa Bay jerseys to Newton’s face. The QB decided to grab one of the jerseys (Jameis Winston’s to be exact) which was then pulled back on by the fan, forcing Cam to trip and fall which resulted in a good laugh for most likely both Panthers and Buccaneers fans.

This isn’t the first instance of Newton snatching up fan memorabilia. During a home game earlier in the season, Cam ran over to the first row where a Green Bay fan had hung a Packer banner and ripped it down and threw it to the ground, a move heavily criticized by many.
