The Panthers beat the Packers by a touchdown on Sunday, and it may have been because of former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton’s quick thinking.
This is usually the type of audio that can only be heard on NFL Films specials on DVD or TV a long while after the game is over.
Sunday, the mics were lucky enough to pick up this incredible conversation.
Clay Matthews: It's that wheel route, it's that wheel route
Cam Newton: You been watching film, huh?
Cam: That's cool. Watch this
Cam: Slant to McCaffrey TD
I can't stop watching this.pic.twitter.com/PZcfiayC7T

Clay Matthews identifies the route, then Newton calls him out on it. It’s unclear whether or not he changed the play at the line or Matthews misidentified what was happening, but this audio is still awesome.
It truly shows why two of the best players in the game at their respective positions are so good at what they do.
