In the third quarter of the Panthers-Giants game on Sunday, Carolina was leading the 35-7 and looked like they were well on their way to a 14-0 start.
Odell Beckham, Jr., probably should have been thrown out of the game, due to his multiple unsportsmanlike conduct penalties against Josh Norman, including one where he cheap shotted the Panthers’ cornerback in the head when he wasn’t looking.
But Beckham was given a second chance, as the refs let him stay in the game. He and the Giants took full advantage, mounting an incredible 28 point comeback topped off by Beckham’s game-tying touchdown catch, which he followed up with an Allen Iverson step over.
Unfortunately for the Giants and their 28-point comeback, Cam Newton wasn’t shook, as he led the Panthers down the field in the game’s final minute to set up a Graham Gano game-winning field goal to push the Panthers to 14-0 and put the Giants on life support.
At this point, the question has to be asked: What in the world does a team have to do to actually beat the Panthers?
