Sunday was a good day for Carolina Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton who made his return to the starting lineup after his car accident.
Newton returned to lead the Carolina Panthers to a big win over the Cleveland Browns as they emerged as 17-13 winners.
It was a big win for Carolina as it now leaves them with a winner takes all match against the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday for the NFC South division.
Whilst Sunday saw the Panthers win and officially eliminate the New Orleans Saints from the play-off race, it wasn't all smiles at the Bank of America stadium.
Newton did also help to spark a bit of tension in the stands despite the fact that its the season of goodwill.
- Lions player called a scumbag by Chicago Bears star
- Browns planning another huge QB change
- Baltimore Ravens Steve Smith gives the fans a big insult
Just after the two minute warning in the first half, Newton showed his ability to run with the ball when he ran in a touchdown to put the Panthers up 10-3 before half-time.
Following his rush into the endzone, Newton went to the fans to give his touchdown ball to a young Carolina fan.
Like we saw at the Saints - Cincinnati Bengals game earlier this season, another fan thought the ball was for them and the two began a tug of war.
Unlike in New Orleans, this war was fought between two young boys both vying for the chance to possess the gameball.
Its hard to blame both boys for going for the ball but in quite a funny video, we see why fans should sometimes not be given the ball by players.
Cam to save Carolina?
The NFC South may be the worst division in the NFL but it has now built up a big conclusion heading into the final gameweek.
The Panthers are currently top of the division by just half a game as their 6-8-1 record beats the Falcons 6-9.
This Sunday will see a winner take all scenario between the Panthers and Falcons as the two clash in the Georgia Dome.
The winner will get the prestige of hosting a play-off game in the wildcard weekend but you would be hard pressed to find anyone who sees them getting past that stage.
With the chance of playing the Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks or Detroit Lions the Panthers or Falcons would be the underdogs in their own play-off game.
