All of a sudden, Cam Newton has a few major supporters from the Pacific Northwest. Guys typically hellbent on knocking the Carolina Panthers quarterback silly are now expressing some major love.
“Let’s go, Cam, get it done!” Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright pleaded to USA TODAY Sports as he unwound in the visitor’s locker room at AT&T Stadium on Christmas Eve.
“Cam, Luke (Kuechly), Thomas Davis. Just get the job done for us.”
Funny how these instant fan clubs tend to pop up at this time of year. But the Seahawks, hoping to slide into the playoffs for a sixth consecutive season, need help. Seattle can only claim the NFC’s final wild-card slot with a victory against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, coupled with an Atlanta Falcons loss to Newton’s Panthers.
At least it’s much simpler now, heading into the last weekend of the regular season.
“Whatever happens, happens,” Wright concluded.
Staying alive was hardly automatic, even with Seattle’s gritty Week 16 effort against the Dallas Cowboys. The Seahawks (9-6) needed help even before playing what amounted to an elimination game against Dallas. But they got an early Christmas present when the New Orleans Saints upended the Falcons, who could have clinched that precious berth with a victory. USA Today
