Cam Newton Gets Hit in The Head, Ref Throws Flag on Cam For Taunting (Video)
In the second quarter of the Redskins-Panthers match-up on MNF, QB Cam Newton took off out of the pocket on a broken play and proceeded to slide when Redskins defenders got close. Cam was clearly hit in the head by Trent Murphy, and a flag went flying from the ref.
At the time everyone assumed the flag was on Murphy, but nope. It was on Cam, who received a taunting penalty for throwing the ball at him.
