According to a massive flood of Twitter tweets, NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs Running Back Jaamal Charles was injured in the game against the Detroit Lions, and was carted off the field. That’s a big loss, even as Kansas City is losing to the Lions 14 to 3, and the Lions seem to be having their way with the Chiefs.
And another team that’s shocking an NFL power team is the Cam Newton-led Carolina Panthers. Last week, the 2011 NFL Draft Number One Pick shocked the World throwing for a rookie record 422 yards against the Arizona Cardinals, in a game they should have won.
Now, Newton is leading the Panthers against the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers in the first half of that game at Lambeau Field 13 to 7. Newton was 12 of 18 for 162 yards, one touchdown and one interception as of this writing. He also has four rushes for 26 yards. One NFL.com commenter said he didn’t expect Newton to be as far along as he is.
Neither did NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, who questioned Cam’s heart before the NFL Draft.
