When I think of the NFC Championship game between Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers v. Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals, I automatically think of Hell’s Kitchen. Everyone has either seen an episode of Hell’s Kitchen with Gordon Ramsey or at least heard about it.
Let me paint the picture for you. Cam Newton is a nicer version of Gordon Ramsey, controlling the kitchen and the red kitchen represents the Cardinals. Just like the chefs competing in Hell’s Kitchen, the Cardinals are a good team, they know what they are supposed to be doing. They have a top ranked offense and their defense is pretty solid. They just folded under pressure. Newton, just like Ramsey go all out and take no prisoners which made it even harder for Cardinals quarterback, Carson Palmer.
Palmer threw four interceptions and had two forced fumbles alone. There were seven turnovers all together. On the other hand, Newton had one interception resulting in one turnover all game. It would have been two interceptions if cornerback, Patrick Peterson, had not gotten ahead of himself and dropped the pass in the first half. By half time, the Panthers were up 24- 7, setting up to close the kitchen down early and kick everyone out. The final score was 49- 15 which was the most the Carolina Panthers scored this season.
Cam Newton will be dabbin’ his way into Super Bowl 50 against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
