Cam Newton said a Miami Dolphins players tried to snatch the chain off his neck.
After the Patriots won 21-10 at Gillette Stadium a hand reached into the camera frame and tugs at Cam's neck. The chain was snapped, but Cam managed to save it.
Cam's teammates stepped in and separated the players.
"I still got my chain," Cam said with a smile ... "I got two of 'em. So you could see. It was disrespect, they was reaching for my chain, though. I think that kind of got under my skin. But yeah, through it all, man ... listen -- I do not want nothing to be taken away from a great team game that we did have. And I don't want to be selfish to kind of focus or dwell on that. I think for us as a team, or me personally -- a lot of tempers can flare. And I was just teasing with Coach, just letting him know that the College Park almost came out in me."
