LANDOVER, Md. Kylie Fitts Hoodie . -- Cam Newton was not happy a helmet-to-helmet penalty wasnt called when a?Washington Redskins?defender hit him, but the Carolina Panthers quarterback said he regrets his reaction after the play, which drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.Newton was scrambling on his way out of bounds in the first half of the Panthers eventual 26-15 victory over the Redskins on Monday night, when he was hit by Washingtons Trent Murphy. Newton shot up and tossed the ball at Murphy as the quarterback walked away to draw the penalty.Ive got to be better than that, Newton said. That just cant happen on my part. I just have to let the referees do their job, and obviously, it was a questionable hit, but I cant throw the ball at a person. Thats against the rules too.Panthers coach Ron Rivera offered his thoughts on the play.On the sideline, yes. I took a look at the video board. And thats it, Rivera said. I get to see it, and unfortunately, theyre trying to make a decision at full speed. But at the end of the day, weve got to keep our composure.Rivera argued it should have been offsetting penalties, which would have left the Panthers in field goal position. Because Newton was sliding, he was rendered defenseless. Instead, Carolina had to punt.Gerry Austin, a retired official who works on ESPN broadcasts, agreed with Riveras take on the play.?That was a sliding quarterback and you have helmet-to-helmet contact. You should have had a call there, Austin said.Referee Walt Coleman defended the call after the game.Well, what I saw was that Cam slid late, and the defender went over the top, Coleman said. I didnt see any forcible contact with the head.OK, if they slide late, they can be contacted, but they still cant be contacted forcibly in the head. And so what we ruled was that he slid late but there was no forcible contact with the head -- that he just went over the top.This was the latest incident in a season of frustration for Rivera and Newton over uncalled penalties on illegal hits and helmet-to-helmet shots against the reigning NFL MVP.The first occurred in the opener against the?Broncos?in Denver, where Newton was hit in the helmet twice without penalties being enforced.It escalated when Newton blasted officials after a home win against the?Arizona Cardinals?for not calling a hit below the knees while he was in the pocket.Its really taking the fun out of the game for me -- honestly, it really is, Newton said at the time. At times, I dont even feel safe. Enough is enough. I plan on talking to commissioner [Roger] Goodell about this. Its not fun, and I dont know what I have to do.The officiating crew that day also was headed by Coleman.Newton and Rivera had a conversation with Goodell after the Arizona hit. Newton said his point was made, and the league later admitted it should have been called a penalty.Coleman said his crew doesnt work a game any differently knowing that Newton spoke with Goodell to voice his concerns.We just work the game, and if its a foul, we call a foul, Coleman said. If its not, then we dont. So you know, it doesnt make any difference to us who is playing or who the quarterback is. Were trying to get the plays correct.A few weeks after the Arizona hit, Newton drew his first roughing the passer penalty since Week 15 of the 2014 season in a loss to the?Raiders?in Oakland.Mondays unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Newton was his second this season, making him the only quarterback to have two this season. His other came in Week 4 at Atlanta.Im not going to beat a dead horse. I just cant retaliate in that way; Im better than that, I know I am, Newton said following the game against the Redskins. I cant jeopardize that type of play for my team. Mitchell Trubisky Hoodie . The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN.

Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. NEW YORK -- Thanks to a recent run of improved play, the Colorado Rockies figure their team will be intact after Mondays trade deadline.The surprising Rockies are within striking distance of a wild-card spot, and it seems theres no sell-off coming this season. At least that was the clubhouse consensus following Sundays 6-4 loss to the New York Mets.We feel close to each other, so I dont think there will be any changes, slugger Carlos Gonzalez said. We are playing good ball, so it makes it easier for the club to continue to put confidence in this club and each player in this room.Colorado nearly completed a season sweep of the defending NL champions, but let it slip away. Boone Logan gave up a go-ahead, three-run homer to Neil Walker in the seventh inning that rallied the Mets.Gonzalez hit a tying double in the fifth and a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the seventh off winner Jerry Blevins (4-1). Daniel Descalso had two RBI singles for the Rockies (52-53), who had won five in a row and nine of 10.Just last year, Colorado traded star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki in the days before the non-waiver deadline. This summer, the outlook feels different, the future more promising.Were playing really well. Its really exciting, where were at right now, second baseman DJ LeMahieu said. I see us keeping it rolling, too.We believe in ourselves. You cant fake believing in it, and we believe in it.After the first pitch was delayed 38 minutes by rain, Chad Bettis recovered from a shaky start and yielded three runs in six innings. He retired his final 10 batters (five on strikeouts) as Colorado -- long a wasteland for pitchers -- broke the club record with its 20th quality start this month.Its huge for us, especially for our starting staff, and we just have to keep it rolling and see what we can do, Bettis said. We know that whoever is going out there on any given day is going to get the job done.Walker also had an RBI triple, extending his recent tear at the plate, and Jeurys Familia rebounded from consecutive blown saves. New York sustained another costly injury, this one to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, but snapped a four-game skid that matched its longest this season.Playing without ailing slugger Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets averted a four-game sweep and finished 1-6 against the Rockies this year. Before that, New York took 11 straight from Colorado -- including a 7-00 mark last season. Cheap Bears Hoodies Store. Its a huge win for us, manager Terry Collins said.Alejandro De Aza walked with one out in the seventh and, one out later, James Loney drew a 10-pitch walk from Logan (1-1). Walker drove his 17th homer to left-center, pumped his fist after crossing the plate and eventually came out for a curtain call.Logan had not allowed a home run since Peter Bourjos connected for St. Louis on June 9 last year. The left-handers streak lasted 45 2/3 innings.Hes been close to perfect this year, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. To go 5-2 on this road trip, I think our confidence is about as high -- certainly as high as its been all year.Addison Reed struck out three in a one-hit eighth, and Familia fanned two in a perfect ninth for his major league-leading 37th save in 39 attempts.PLAY AT THE PLATEGonzalez tried to score from third with two outs in the fifth on a pitch that got past Rene Rivera, but plate umpire Jeff Kellogg ruled the Mets catcher made the tag in time as both players dove headlong toward the plate. After a replay review, the call stood. I was definitely safe. I dont know what they were looking at, Gonzalez said.FOR STARTERSMets All-Star Noah Syndergaard threw a career-high 118 pitches over six innings. Bettis matched his career best with eight strikeouts. Both pitchers are from Texas and they train together in the offseason. It was fun, Bettis said.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Rookie SS Trevor Story sat out with a jammed left thumb that he injured Saturday night. Story, who began the day leading the NL with 27 home runs, said his goal is to return Tuesday at home against the Dodgers. He might have an MRI on Monday after the Rockies return home, the team said. ... Slumping 3B Nolan Arenado was out of the lineup for rest but entered on defense in the seventh.Mets: Cabrera hurt his left knee while scoring from first base on Walkers two-out triple in the first.UP NEXTFollowing a day off, Colorado begins an eight-game homestand Tuesday night. RHP Jon Gray (7-4, 3.94 ERA) pitches against Los Angeles, looking to improve his 4-0 record at Coors Field. Gray has gone seven innings and allowed no more than one run in three straight starts, but has a 6.55 ERA in two outings against the Dodgers this year. Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
