How come Cliff Avril, Frank Clark and the Seahawks sack artists didn’t wrap up Cam Newton?

How come Cliff Avril, Frank Clark and the Seahawks sack artists didn’t wrap up Cam Newton?

After leading the league in sacks through 10 games, Seattle’s defense was held without any for the second straight week I’ll be the first to admit it is crazy to nitpick a 33-point win—especially when there are far more legitimate concerns to worry about, if you’re the worrying type. (I’m not.) But I was a little curious how the Seattle Seahawks never managed to sack Cam Newton in their win over the Carolina Panthers Sunday night, because the scenario seemed set up for Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett and Seattle’s other hunting dogs to devour the cat-astrophe that is the...

Ron Rivera says discipline for Cam Newton was not a big deal

Cam Newton and Ron Rivera both say the team’s dress code didn’t play a major factor in the Week 13 loss. Both Ron Rivera and Cam Newton have tried to shrug off criticism of the strict dress code policy that led to the reigning NFL MVP being benched for the beginning of a must-win Sunday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks. Newton made the trip to Seattle without a tie on, which is against the team policy and resulted in him sitting for Carolina’s opening series.

Did karma catch up with Cam Newton?

Flag on the play: Cam Newton’s struggles may be karma, but it has nothing to do with Seahawks

Flag on the play: Cam Newton’s struggles may be karma, but it has nothing to do with Seahawks
