Rivera disciplined Newton to avoid 'chaos' setting in

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he benched reigning league MVP Cam Newton on Sunday night because he didn't want "chaos" setting in with his football team.

Rivera opened his press conference Wednesday with a stern statement, hoping it will put to rest his much-publicized decision to not start Newton in a game the Panthers lost 40-7 to the Seahawks.

"I am going to address this situation one last time - I made a decision based on rules. I treat everybody the same," Rivera said. "The reason you do it, especially when you are having a tough season, is because chaos can consume your football team. The idea was to do the right thing, treat everybody the same. I have done it before where I have had to treat people the same, and that's all I have done. That's the end of it. Please, as the football team would like to move forward and start focusing on the San Diego Chargers."
