Cam Newton created unprecedented energy

Not since the 2015 NFL Championship game had there been such an atmosphere within Bank of America Stadium. Cam Newton issued a rallying cry to fans this week and boy, did they respond.

The anticipation was palpable on social media and for those lucky enough to be tailgating before the game. Newton’s introduction in front of those that have adored him throughout his time in the league was nothing short of spine-tingling.

This sort of environment is something Newton’s always fed off. Hopefully, a trend that can continue long into the future and possibly beyond despite the result not going their way.
