Yesterday, the Carolina Panthers had an amazing pick six by A.J. Klein that was negated when quarterback Cam Newton ran onto the field in excitement. His act actually cost his teammate a 94 yard touchdown. The refs threw a flag and docked Newton for his actions.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton did apologize to linebacker A.J. Klein after his penalty for running onto the field to celebrate cost Klein a 94-yard return of an interception for a touchdown on Thursday night.
“No, he came up and apologized, that could’ve possibly made the difference in the game,” Klein said after the game. “It’s just learning a lesson for the regular season. Everybody’s got to be on their game.”
