Panthers quarterback Cam Newton turned in his best performance of the season on Sunday, and his team was able to go
into Gillette Stadium and pull off an upset win, 33-30.
Newton completed 22 of 29 passes for 316 yards (three touchdowns) in the game, and also rushed for 44 yards as well. He gave the Patriots’ defense fits throughout the game, using both his arm and his legs to make plays.
Given that the Panthers emerged victorious, and are now 3-1 on the season, many would have expected Newton to be in good spirits after the win. But that didn’t appear to be the case, judging from the way he addressed reporters on his way into the locker room.
“Don’t ask me for no interviews now, I don’t wanna do it,” Newton declared. “You didn’t wanna do it before the game, I don’t wanna do it.”
This type of behavior is nothing new, as Newton has had some issues dealing with the media over the years.
