After the game, Newton and a few members of the Dolphins got into a dust-up when it appeared some of the Miami players reached for a chain around the former NFL MVP’s neck.
Newton came after the Dolphins with a little bit of a parting shot:
Shaq Lawson and Raekwon Davis’ Response
Shaq Lawson and Raekwon Davis saw fit to let Newton know their intentions as it relates to his ‘weak-ass’ chain in the comment section of the Instagram post:
- “We don’t won’t that weak ass chain,” Lawson wrote.
- “Man ain’t nobody want your fake ass chains s–t was weak anyway,” Davis said.
Newton explained the chain is important to him because it has his kid’s birthstones on it. While some may argue he shouldn’t wear it on the field, there is something to be said for trying to rip jewelry from someone’s neck. That’s usually a sign of disrespect.
The Rivalry Has Some New Fire
Needless to say, the physical game on Sunday, the tough loss for the Dolphins, and the back-and-forth between Newton and the opposition should make the Week 15 rematch all the more interesting.
