There were many side stories to last night’s first game of the NFL season. While some were serious, like Brandon Marshall taking a knee during the national anthem, some were on the lighter side, such as Cam Newton flossing his teeth in the middle of the game. Why would a player randomly feel the need to floss during the 3rd quarter? Twitter had a field day with it and you can see some of the reactions in the gallery. After the game, Cam explained very briefly what led to his flossing.


Cam wasn’t in the best of moods after the loss but he spoke with the media and of course the question about him flossing was asked. He kept his answer short and simple.

“I was eating oranges at halftime.”

Makes total sense now.
