Dressed in a matching black turtleneck and hat with a dark gray coat, Carolina quarterback Cam Newton looked impeccable as usual after Sunday night’s game.
But Ron Rivera apparently wasn’t too crazy about the outfit when the reigning league MVP wore it a day earlier for the team’s flight to Seattle.
