VIDEO: Cam Newton Scores Against Falcons, Does Deion Sanders' Dance

Newtondeion_medium

We'll sort of give Atlanta native Cam Newton a pass for doing a Falcons-centric dance while scoring against his hometown team. Though it's passe to do the Dirty Bird while celebrating a touchdown in the Georgia Dome, Newton instead showed off his Atlanta roots by mimicking Deion Sanders' trademark touchdown dance when he put the Panthers on top in the third quarter:

And it's the day on which Sanders was honored at halftime for entering the Hall of Fame. Hard to say I'm not mad about this, but how can you be entirely mad at that? Kinda mad, actually. Not all that mad though. Will be mad if the Falcons lose. But not because of this. Glad we had this talk.
