Cam Newton may well be the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player, but he isn't having a great time of things as we pass the halfway point of the 2016 regular season.

Earlier this week, Newton started complaining about the hits that he has been taking out on the football field, and even went as far as to having a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to talk about the subject.

Newton isn't happy with the hits he's taken that haven't been flagged. Today against the Los Angeles Rams, the Panthers quarterback has taken some huge hits, and he can have no complaint about them.

Not every hit that Newton takes deserves a flag, and the Rams hit him hard but legally all night long on Sunday. It was summed up beautifully by the huge sack he got hit with by Mark Barron.

Barron came in like an absolute freight train on that play. Nobody was stopping the LA linebacker as he took down Newton and crumpled the quarterback on the ground beneath him.

Take a look at the hit from another angle, where it looks just as brutal.

And then there was this from Aaron Donald, which looks just absolutely brutal. Donald basically eats Newton here, absorbing all sunlight and anything good in the world before landing on the QB.

The Panthers came away from the game with a win, but Newton will be feeling the effects of this for quite a while.
