5. Cam Newton, because he lost a football game.
If you spent yesterday under a rock, you might not be aware you missed Super Bowl 50. (You probably still would, because it was shown under most rocks.) The Denver Broncos and their quarterback Peyton Manning pulled off a major 24-10 upset over the Carolina Panthers, which must have come as a nasty shock to their quarterback, Cam Newton.
Although he was the league's MVP for the year, Newton failed to break through the Broncos' defense in the big game, being sacked six times. Considering the hype that surrounded the 26-year-old Newton this season, and the attention paid to 39-year-old Manning's injuries, this must have been a crushing blow. And if that weren't humiliating enough, he had to spend halftime listening to Coldplay.
