The Buffalo Bills were getting after Cam Newton all game, and unfortunately, one hit finally did some real damage, with two defenders smothering Newton and forcing him to leave the field with an ankle injury.
The NFL is back this weekend, bringing with it the highest concentration of takes from media members and star players since February. Inevitably, a bunch of them are about whether or not Colin Kaepernick deserves to be on an NFL roster.
Some people are fans of the Carolina Panthers. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Carolina Panthers. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
The only consistently good thing about the NFL training camp news cycle are stories about players who may or may not be fat. I wake up every morning in May and June thirsting for grainy or oddly angled photos of football players so that I may spend hours scrutinizing them in an attempt to reach a verdict of Fat or Not…
Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Michael Oher was cited for misdemeanor assault last month in Nashville for allegedly pushing an Uber driver to the ground and kicking him. He will appear in court next week.
Carolina Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton fractured two bones in his back in 2014, when he was involved in a crash in one of Charlotte’s most treacherous intersections. Two years after he and hundreds of other residents called for it, it’s finally getting a traffic light.
The latest edition of What Will it Take for Cam Newton to Draw a Flag? aired on Monday night, when a scrambling Newton slid—maybe late—and got hit helmet-to-helmet—maybe glancing—by Washington LB Trent Murphy. There was a flag thrown on a play: a taunting call on Newton for flipping the football at Murphy. Yesterday,…
It must’ve been quite the kick in the dick for Washington fans to root for Dallas on Sunday night, so the Skins could overtake Tampa for pole position for the second NFC wild-card spot, only to watch their team hand the advantage right back to the Bucs.
Defenses have been abusing Cam Newton all season, and NFL officiating teams have continued to keep the flags in their pockets. So when the flag came out after Trent Murphy’s blow to the Carolina QB’s skull after a third-down rush tonight against Washington, it was a short-lived sigh of relief for Panthers fans—because…
San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was carted off the field after getting injured at the bottom of a pile in the first quarter today against the Carolina Panthers.
In what will, assuming God is merciful, be the dumbest NFL story of the week, it turns out that the reason why Cam Newton didn’t start for the Carolina Panthers last night against the Seattle Seahawks was that he wouldn’t dress like a clown.
The Panthers’ offense lasted exactly one play in its first drive against the Seahawks tonight after Derek Anderson threw an interception on his first pass attempt of the game. For some reason, Cam Newton was benched, and it’s unclear why the much better QB wasn’t on the field.
Richard Sherman is not one to easily suffer slights. Last year after the Panthers beat the Seahawks in the playoffs, Cam Newton was running a circuit around the Panthers’ stadium for his customary parade of high-fives, when he grabbed a “12th man” flag, crumpled it up, and tossed it.
Carolina Panthers backup QB Derek Anderson was upset that his team didn’t get a pass interference call late in the second quarter—upset enough to yell at an official from the sidelines. Anderson received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for “disrespectfully addressing an official,” all the way from the bench.
Why is it so unsettling that Luke Kuechly cried? This is a sport where players suffer brain injuries every single game, yet Kuechly’s apparent concussion and subsequent reaction as he was carted off the field has completely overshadowed the Panthers’ win, in a way that doesn’t happen when someone is merely knocked…
Panthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly took a nasty head injury in the fourth quarter of tonight’s close game against the Saints. Kuechly had to be carted off and he did not hide his emotions as he was leaving the field. It wasn’t immediately apparent what part of his body exactly Kuechly hurt, but the Panthers…
After he took a hit to his knee that wasn’t flagged on Sunday, Cam Newton went off on the NFL. “At times I don’t even feel safe,” Newton, the reigning league MVP, said at the start of an extended rant about calls he frequently doesn’t get. “And enough is enough.”
