Falcon kicked out for vicious hit on Cam Newton

5



In a season in which tackles and what is legal and illegal is spotlighted and controversial, there is no gray area to this brutal hit to Cam Newton.

In the second quarter of Sunday’s Panthers-Falcons game, the Carolina quarterback scrambled for a first down on fourth-and-4, then slid to the ground, ending the play. That’s when Atlanta safety Damontae Kazee delivered a vicious shot to Newton’s head, spearing him and going helmet to helmet.

With Newton sprawled, clearly hurting on the field, his teammates came to his support and knocked Kazee to the ground. Kazee then was knocked out of the game, tossed for the hit.

Newton went to the medical tent on the sideline but did not miss any time in the game.
