Cam Newton’s Ref Bump Could Be First Test Of Roger Goodell’s Post-Bounty Gate Power

‘Tis the season to find out who was naughty and who was nice, so when Roger Goodell gets handed the paperwork from Sunday’s Raiders-Panthers game, he will see that Carolina’s Cam Newton was very, very naughty.

‘Rested’ Marshawn Lynch Ready To Rumble As Seahawks Take On Hurting Panthers

The Panthers are dinged up on defense and that could make all the difference against the Seahawks on Sunday especially when having to face down the NFL’s leading rusher Marshawn Lynch who took most of the week off to rest. Seattle’s second ranked defense is relatively healthy and that could spell trouble for Carolina QB Cam Newton.
