Steph Curry is Cam Newton's No. 1 fan

The NBA's reigning MVP is a huge Panthers fan, and he thinks that Cam Newton deserves the MVP award.

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

CURRY AND CAM: Steph Curry says Cam Newton "should be the MVP." The reigning NBA champ and MVP is the Carolina Panthers' No. 1 fan. Panthers players feel the same way about Curry and the Warriors, but there's a special connection between Curry and Cam that Robert Mays explores in this story about two friends at the top of their game.

GIANTS TOP DOLPHINS: The Giants finally won a game in the fourth quarter, icing the Dolphins by a final score of 31-24. Yes, Odell Beckham was doing amazing things, as usual, and you can see them here. Refs initially ruled that his third quarter touchdown was out of bounds, but a closer look at OBJ's amazing footwork reversed the ruling. Bill Belichick's argument for more cameras on the field got stronger.

Miami is eliminated from playoff contention with the loss, but there was a lot to like about their offensive performance. Kenny Stills' touchdown is one of those things, and so is Lamar Miller's amazing run.

PATS CLINCH: Patriots clinch AFC East. The Dolphins' loss on Monday night locks up New England's seventh straight division title.

PLAYOFF SCENARIOSThe NFL's wackiest playoff scenarios include the Cowboys winning a four-way tie and the Broncos missing the playoffs altogether? Plenty of things can still happen!

GET LUCKY: Colts expect Hasselbeck back this week. Colts coach Chuck Pagano said late Monday that they expect the starting backup QB in the lineup this week. As for Andrew Luck's status ... nobody really knows when Luck will be back.

BABY DAB: Greg Olsen refuses to dab, but his son is a natural! Awwwwwwwww.

WILSON STILL OVERLOOKEDWhen will Russell Wilson get the credit he deserves? It's taken a long time for people to recognize that Wilson is doing it like it's never been done before, but it's still not enough.

GOOD NEWS BENGALS: Andy Dalton does not need surgery. The Bengals' quarterback is officially being described as "week-to-week," but he'll most likely be back for the playoffs, if not sooner.

VJAX DONE: Vincent Jackson to miss "several games" with MCL injury. That likely spells the end of the season for the veteran receiver.

ALL BLACK: Eagles will wear all-black jerseys against Cardinals. Even more alternate jerseys! The Eagles will wear their black uniforms Sunday night.

HOW MANY? Derek Carr's reaction to Khalil Mack's sack total Sunday is priceless. The Raiders quarterback was blown away by his teammate's sack total this week. Watch.

HOT SEAT IN ATLANTAThe Atlanta Falcons may be looking for a new GM. There are rumors that Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff will get the boot when the season ends, and there's talk of a Seahawks transplant replacing him.

THIS IS THE 49ERS: Jim Tomsula screaming "f*** me" just about sums it up. Yep.

SCREAMING AT THE REFSWatch: Dennis Thurman screams at officials in tunnel. The Bills' defensive coordinator had a few words for officials following Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Rex Ryan wouldn't deny or confirm Thurman’s comments.

FANTASY CORNER: It's playoff time! Don't overlook the waiver wire this week. Here are the best pickups at every position.
