Cam Newton started his New England Patriots career with 21-11 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. But it wasn’t all smiles for the former MVP when the final whistle sounded.
Shortly after the Patriots wrapped up the victory, Newton and a few Dolphins players appeared to get into a bit of a scuffle on the field. Newton had to be separated from his opponents and was visibly agitated by what had happened.
It looked like Dolphins players were trying to grab the chain Newton was wearing, and the veteran QB confirmed that in his postgame press conference.
Here’s the video for you when the chain was pulled off his neck and you can see it fall from Cam Newton hands. I would be pissed too 🤷🏾♂️ pic.twitter.com/amWYoZ0zGP

Ultimately, those tensions were cooled down and didn’t go beyond the shouting.
The Patriots and Dolphins won’t play again until Dec. 20 in Miami, and even though that’s several months away, it’s probably worth circling that game on your calendar now given what happened in Week 1.
