He scored a first-quarter touchdown in the game against the Panthers, giving the Bills an early lead, then leaped into the stands to celebrate with Buffalo fans.

In an unprompted manner last weekend, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin unleashed on his former team, the Carolina Panthers and his former quarterback, Cam Newton.

The conversation continued until Benjamin said something to Newton that had Newton gesturing that he was finished with him.

Benjamin played with Newton for three and a half seasons in Carolina, though one of those was spent on the sidelines due to an ACL tear.

The pressure that caused the Lombok quake was created by the Australian plate pushing northwards into the Indonesian plate. Debris littered the streets of Lombok and Bali , which local people sought to clean up in the hours after the quake.

"It was a bad fit from the get-go", Kelvin told The Athletic. Benjamin answered questions about the exchange by saying he was "moving on", although when asked what Newton said to him, Benjamin responded, "I don't know".

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.

"I mean, I felt like I would've been even more successful if ..." He responded on social media in his Instagram story. Looking back on it, I should've just been drafted by somebody else.

Things likely won't get much better for Benjamin in Buffalo, as he'll be catching passes from either A.J. McCarron, Josh Allen or Nathan Peterman.
