Patriots QB Cam Newton and WR N’Keal Harry shared a special moment on Sunday and he’s not sharing.
Cam Newton’s New England Patriots are having fun out there, shrugging off a sluggish first half to demolish the unprepared and sloppy Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday in Foxborough.
And though plenty of great stuff happened on the field in the contest (the running back committee looking dominant helped a lot), the enduring image likely came from the bench: A meme-ified Cam Newton listening to N’Keal Harry, then melting off the bench into the turf.
Sometimes, we are very thankful for the number of cameras installed to capture our favorite players’ every waking mid-game moment.
We don’t know what this is, and it’s great.
And, per Cam, we never will.
According to our fearless leader in the postgame scrum, he’d rather not tell the gathered Zoom media what Harry said that turned him into goop. And we can understand that.
Obviously, Newton wants to protect his privacy here, as well as that of his young teammate. He’s stuck up for Harry at every turn, and doesn’t want the media to get too invasive.
More importantly, though, it’s much better for his brand if this meme remains context-less. Now, with no explanation, the NFL Twitter world can continue to ascribe their desired meaning to the short and excellent clip.
After all, what meme has ever been satisfyingly explained?
So, keep the captions coming. Trump’s tax returns. Cam watching DK Metcalf get punked by the Cowboys. Any time someone claims the Pats are far, far behind the Ravens and Chiefs. The sky’s the limit here.
Newton is the gift that keeps on giving, and his infectious personality just delivered for us yet again on Sunday. But mum’s the word on what exactly happened here.
