But setting off a cannon at Raymond James Stadium is what they did, and it clearly shook Cam Newton who ducked when he heard the explosion.

Perhaps football teams— on the NFL and college levels—should rethink loud explosions, especially at a time where people are still sensitive to the blasts that marred the Boston Marathon earlier this year.
