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

CARvsNYG04

Reid, who was signed by the Panthers last week made headlines in his first press conference by wearing a shirt with the hashtag #ImWithKap on the front. His previous career-long was a 59-yarder he hit in 2011 when he was with the Redskins. Eli Manning hooked up with Saquon Barkley on a 15-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline - the rookie made a long dive into the end zone - to put the Giants in front 31-30 with 1:08 remaining.

"I'm happy that we got a kicker like that", Newton said of Gano.

After he converted the kick he said his main goal was seeking safety from the rest of his teammates running after him.

"I don't know", Beckham said. Last week against the Saints he had a season-low 10 carries.

But that didn't get almost the reaction of Gano's kick that the former Florida State star celebrated by pointing up and giving a No. 1 sign to his wife as he's done since college.

Every third home game, the Carolina Panthers will introduce their special teams unit on the jumbo screen and the players will run out of the tunnel amid the smoke and the flames.

Manning finished 22 of 36 for 326 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, both by Panthers 37-year-old safety Mike Adams.

With a large American flag in the middle of the field, Reid went to his right knee as the "The Star-Spangled Banner" was sung by Marc Martel. Samuel broke four tackles on his way to the end zone, and was so quick he appeared to wiggle back and forth behind the offensive linemen blocking downfield for him so he could stay behind their blocks. Despite signing a one-year contract with the Panthers, Reid told ESPN he will continue with the case "without a doubt". He is the first Panthers player ever to kneel during the national anthem.

The 57-yard score represents the first passing touchdown in Beckham's career.
