Panthers QB Cam Newton declares he’s standing by new teammate, Eric Reid

Eric Reid's new Carolina Panthers teammates aren't anxious about whether the safety will demonstrate or protest during the national anthem on Sunday before the Panthers face the New York Giants.

Because it happened on a Panthers punt. Giants' Janoris Jenkins tried to fall on the ball, but it squirted out of his hands and then was kicked and bounced off two more players - including Samuel - before Jones fell on it in the end zone. He has rushed for at least 700 yards in each of the last three seasons, joining Michael Vick as the only National Football League quarterbacks with three 700-yard seasons rushing.

- Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater missed a 55-yard field goal, badly, sending the football way right.

Gano's third field goal of the game put the Panthers up 30-24 with just more than two minutes remaining.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says the team got a "steal" with newly signed safety Eric Reid.

Though Newton has been sacked six times, his 28 rush attempts for 4.9 yards per offset that, and No. 1 backfield performer Christian McCaffrey has ben solid too. But he showed both on a touchdown run in the same series.

The Giants are hoping the 6-foot-6 290-pound Mauro will improve their fortunes in defending the zone reads.That will be key to shutting down this potent Carolina offense. Curtis Samuel, a second-round pick in 2017, turned a wide receiver screen into a 25-yard touchdown in the first quarter in his first game since undergoing a minor heart procedure.

During the start of the fourth quarter, cameras caught Shepard punching the bench and throwing a trash can. Odell Beckham Jr., had a big game as a receiver and passer. The move couldn't come as a better time with the Panthers facing a run attack that includes standout rookie running back Saquon Barkley. The Panthers are allowing 110 yards per game on the ground.
