One game into his career with the New England Patriots, Cam Newton already has some new rivals.
Newton and Dolphins defenders got into a scuffle as the Patriots closed out a 21-11 win Sunday, and the quarterback later told reporters that Miami players went after his chain:
"I still got my chain. I got two of 'em. They were reaching for my chain, though. They were reaching for my chain. And I think that kind of got under my skin. But yeah, through it all, man listen -- I do not want nothing to be taken away from a great team game that we did have. And I don't want to be selfish to kind of focus or dwell on that. I think for us as a team, or me personally -- a lot of tempers can flare. And I was just teasing with coach, just letting him know that the College Park almost came out in me. Yet, through it all, man, it was all fun and games; and it was expected."
After Newton made an Instagram post in which he again claimed Dolphins players went after his chain, Miami's Shaq Lawson and Raekwon Davis responded.
