Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports Patriots quarterback Cam Newton had some words for Dolphins players, who didn't back down. After New England’s 21-11 win, Newton wrote on Instagram that the Dolphins “tried to snatch my chain and the game.” Miami defensive linemen Shaq Lawson and Raekwon Davis both had similar responses to the post. “We don’t want that weak a– chain,” Lawson wrote. “Man ain’t nobody want your fake a– chain s— was weak anyway,” Davis agreed. Newton and Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins exchanged words on the field after the game. That led to some pointing and shoving, and Wilkins then grabbed Newton by the collar area. You could see Newton scrambling to make sure he still had his chain afterword. In an appearance on WEEI Monday morning, Newton said the chain represents his children and their birthstones. Newton was also asked how Bill Belichick responded to the incident. The skirmish reminded us of a past chain-yanking incident in the NFL, though it didn’t quite escalate to that level. The important thing for Newton was that the Patriots got the win. Whether it was his fault or not, Belichick undoubtedly spoke with him about avoiding that type of conflict.
