One minute, Cam Newton is lying on the ground, writhing in pain on the sideline. It looks like he’s about to exit the big Super Bowl rematch against the Broncos in a nationally televised game, as Panthers backup quarterback Derek Anderson is warming up on the sideline.
Only moments later, Newton is back on the field, eluding would-be tacklers, doing his Superman routine. And when he goes back to the bench? Well, he has to floss those pearly whites of course.
No, seriously. In the middle of a hard-fought battle against the defending Super Bowl champions, the starting quarterback for one of the teams is worried about flossing his teeth. And honestly, who can blame him? That perfect, white smile is worth millions in advertising dollars.

Still, it’s hard to get over the fact that during a brutal game of professional football, matters of personal hygiene are being tended to on the sideline. You never know what the cameras will catch, but bet you didn’t expect it to see that. Especially not after watching Newton doubled over and limping around with an apparent leg injury on his previous trip to the sideline.
