Cam Newton Gets 15-yard Taunting Penalty For Signaling First Down (Video)


The NFL is cracking down more than ever on celebrations, especially the ones that are deemed to be taunting.  Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton found that out the hard way on Sunday.

After Newton rumbled his way for a first down against the Atlanta Falcons, he flipped the ball towards an opposing player and signaled for the first down.

He immediately got a penalty for taunting.
