Cam Newton and the undefeated Carolina Panthers are on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated. While Newton appeared on the cover of SI twice while at Auburn, this is the first time he’s graced the cover as a Carolina Panther.
SI senior writer Austin Murphy, who had been in Charlotte twice in two weeks, wrote the story.
“The dab, the stanky leg, the whip and the nae nae … Cam Newton is dancing his way into MVP contention,” Murphy writes in the piece, which has not yet been published online. “And if you don’t like all the fun he’s having? You can take your inferior record and go home.”
As far as any jinx goes, I do think the Panthers lose today in Dallas to go to 10-1 on the season.
