Cam Newton recovered a fumble vs. the Broncos four years too late, and NFL fans had Super Bowl jokes

0

Panthers fans, turn away: Cam Newton has finally recovered a fumble against the Broncos — albeit four years too late, and for a different team.

The play occurred during the Patriots’ first drive of the second half, down 12-3; Bradley Chubb was credited with the strip-sack, but Newton managed to get up from the tackle and dive on the ball to keep possession. Granted, it came on third-and-6, but the ensuing punt gave Denver the ball at their 15-yard line as opposed to New England’s 25.

Just compare that to the last fumble Newton had against Denver in Super Bowl 50:

Newton’s fumble, which could have been worse, was one of several bad plays he had against the Broncos Sunday. He finished the day 17 of 25 through the air for 157 yards and two interceptions. He also rushed 10 times for 76 yards and a score. That wasn’t enough in an 18-12 loss to Denver.

Regardless, social media couldn’t let the moment by without dropping a few jokes — including by the Broncos themselves:
