Despite leading the Patriots to a win in his New England debut, Cam Newton found himself visibly upset after the game.

Newton had to be restrained by teammates and ushered off the field after the Dolphins’ Elandon Roberts and Kyle Van Noy got into Newton’s face following the game. Initially, it was unclear what caused the Dolphins players to try to provoke Newton after the game was already over.

But Newton said in the press conference and in his social media posts that the Dolphins players were trying to snatch the chain off his neck. Close-up video showed that Newton’s chain was actually ripped off at one point during the exchange.

Well, Dolphins players had a response for that too.

After Newton wrote that the Dolphins players tried to snatch his chain and the game, the Dolphins’ Shaq Lawson and Raekwon Davis both commented on the post to mock Newton’s chain. Lawson called it “weak,” and Davis called it “fake.”

The video, though, sure made it seem like that the players were after the chain, which is unnecessarily petty after a loss.

Newton scored two touchdowns in the Patriots win.
