Carolina Panthers: Key players to watch against New York Giants

Oct 7 2018 Charlotte NC USA Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano kicks the game winning field goal against the New York Giants at Bank of America Stadium

Reid signed with the Panthers last Thursday and will likely start against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Gano's kick washed away a subpar performance from Newton, who threw two interceptions, and the defense as Carolina improved to 3-1 and tied with New Orleans for the NFC South lead.

It wasn't the longest kick of Gano's career.

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

"I don't know", Beckham said.

It's the second year in a row the Giants (1-4) have been beaten by a monster field goal at the end.

Following is everything you need related to all things Panthers and Giants as the regular season continues.

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. Odell Beckham Jr. has yet to score a touchdown and will reach a career-long drought of five games if he doesn't score Sunday. "Eric is going to be ready to play ball this weekend and he's going to help the Carolina Panthers win".

Beckham finished the game with eight catches for 131 yards and his first touchdown of the season, a 33-yarder in the fourth quarter that kept the Giants in the ballgame.

Despite Trump's threats, several players continued to take a knee during the national anthem - though that number has dwindled at the start of this NFL season. The last member of the Panthers to protest was defensive end Julius Peppers, who stayed in the locker room prior to the anthem previous year when players around the league protested.

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. "What he does on the football field is going to impact this team". The speedster, 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, showed some toughness by breaking three tackles to get into the end zone.

Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick during the anthem in protest of social injustice.

He said Reid's new teammates are more eager to see what he does on the field rather than what he does before the game.
