Love him or hate him, Cam Newton, quarterback of the Carolina Panthers, is one of the best players in the NFL.
But on Sunday, Newton's head coach, Ron Rivera, thought otherwise. Rivera benched his star QB for the first offensive series of their nationally-televised game against the Seattle Seahawks because he didn't wear a tie on the team's flight from North Carolina to Seattle.
Although Newton sat out for a short period of time on Sunday, it didn't make a difference in the game.
The Panthers lost to the Seahawks 40-7.
