In the game, Panthers' star quarterback Cam Newton took a hit to the head while he was attempting to slide. A flag was thrown, but as Newton was getting up, he threw the football in the direction of the player who hit him, so rather than call a personal foul for roughing Newton, the refs penalized the quarterback for taunting.
