Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took a huge cheap shot to the head as he was sliding. The dirty shot was delivered by Falcons defensive back Damontae Kazee, who led with his helmet and caught Cam in the head.
They don’t call them dirty birds for nothing.

It came after Newton picked up a first down with his legs on 4th down and had clearly given himself up. Kazee ended up being ejected for the dirty play.
Newton was quickly checked out and was back in the game on the next play. He continued the drive, leading the Panthers the rest of the way down the field for a touchdown.
