Cam Newton didnt want it at Super Bowl 50

The Denver Broncos defense completely destroyed Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton during Super Bowl 50. The Broncos forced two fumbles, one interception, and six sacks on the MVP en route to a 24-10 Broncos victory.

After the game, several members of the Denver defense bashed Newton’s play.

Rubbing salt in his wound cornerback Aqib Talib said of Newton: “He didn’t want it.”

“That’s the way he is,” Danny Trevathan added. “Playing for himself.”

Players on Denver’s defense were specifically referencing a key fumble down the stretch in the fourth quarter.

Von Miller forced Newton’s second fumble of the game, and as the free ball bounced around the field, Newton had the opportunity to dive on it but appeared to hold himself back to avoid risking injury.

The Broncos recovered the ball and turned the play into a touchdown which following with a two point conversion and a 24-10 lead.

Here’s the play:

Not the most spirited play from a guy who was named league MVP one day before the Super Bowl.
