The Carolina Panthers have been woefully bad this season as well as Cam Newton, so when the quarterback leaped over the line to break the plane on a rushing TD all he wanted to do was celebrate and do his signature Superman pose.
Well, Newton decided to get in the face of a Saints defender which led to some pushes which then led to an all out brawl.

The Saints and Panthers pushed through a door in the endzone while they were fighting and Panthers tight end Brandon Williams was ejected for throwing punches. I will never understand why football players throw punches to guys in helmets and pads.
This game may continue to get a bit chippy.
