New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has become a meme, and it all happened at the sideline.
The starting quarterback is making headlines Sunday afternoon. Fans were focused on his imperfect game, but his sideline attitude stole the show.
The 2015 NFL MVP attracted everyone’s attention late in the fourth quarter of the Patriots’ Week 3 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Newton talked to wide receiver N’Keal Harry and his reaction was priceless. This happened when the Patriots’ win was all but sealed.
So, what did Newton do? He hit Harry with a side stare before sliding down the Patriots bench. We believe that Newton will have more of this coming throughout the regular season.
Cam Newton became a meme for a reason
The former Carolina Panthers quarterback did well in his third game as a Patriots quarterback. This was more like a team success. Patriots players had a good day in general. Gillette Stadium was on fire. New England improved to 201 with the 36-20 win over Las Vegas.
A lot of former and current NFL players praised the Patriots for their good game. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo offered a simple stamp of approval, and NFL fans will definitely agree with him.
“New England is good,” the CBS analyst said during the telecast. “They can play not great ball and come out winning 36-13.”
New England had a good offensive game in the second half of the game. Running back Rex Burkhead scored three touchdowns and New England had 250 yards on the ground in the game. Burkhead got into the end zone three times as he carried the ball six times for 49 yards and was able to catch seven passes for 49 yards. Burkhead scored on a 11-yard catch when he “juked” Raiders safety Johnathan Abrams. The player also had 5- and 2-yard touchdown runs.
Well, this looks more than impressive for the Patriots. They stand really good at the moment, and the Kansas City Chiefs are next on their list. It’s a tough game for Newton’s team.
