Carolina Panthers beat New York Giants 33-31 in nail-biter

Reid informed media on Monday that he is moving forward in his collusion case against the National Football League and that he is considering ways to continue his protest against social injustice.

None of Reid's new Carolina teammates joined him or stood near him at midfield.

Reid said last week that he hadn't made up his mind on if he would kneel prior to the game. "But that's not the way it works".

Safety Eric Reid will start at safety against the New York Giants on Sunday, head coach Ron Riviera said on Friday.

Reid was signed by the Panthers in a bid to bolster their secondary.

"He's a great player", Newton said. That's the real part of this, and that's where we're at.

Then he threw in a Shakespeare reference, saying: "I'm not going to give the public a pound of flesh on this".

"He's going to be impact player for us and that's all I care about", said quarterback Cam Newton.

That's why it shouldn't be a huge surprise when Newton flattened New York Giants linebacker Kareem Martin when the Panthers ran a trick play and Newton turned into a blocker.

Reid said in a news conference last week he was undecided whether he would continue to kneel for the national anthem.

When asked last week if there was an issue at quarterback, Beckham told ESPN, "I don't know".

"Everybody in this [locker room], everybody who watches this game [and] everybody in this country knows what we're talking about".

We know it's a staple of the Panthers offense with Cam Newton.

Oh, and that was without the Giants' All-Pro receiver ever touching the ball. He was repeatedly corralled behind the line of scrimmage for negative yards, starting the game with five carries for minus-4 yards. Barkley had 44 yards on 10 carries, with 28 coming on a sprint around end.

Video of this NY fan's reaction to the loss is going viral on social media. Expect Barkley to either double his carries this week or have backup Wayne Gallman carry more than twice. Manning, in particular, has been terrible out of the pocket, rushing seven times for 10 yards, hardly more impressive than his 4.25 sacks per game. However, Stewart suffered a foot injury that landed him on injured reserve this past week.

So balancing all of that, how do you evaluate the Panthers' defense Sunday? "Certainly adding him back to the mix will help". Four passes, 75 yards. and nearly no resistance whatsoever.

Earlier this week, Bettcher spoke about Newton and the problems he presents with his running ability.

Don't forget, Samuel rushed for 1,286 yards in three years while at Ohio State, adding 1,249 receiving yards. He went 22-of-36 passing for 326 yards in an uneven performance that was capped by leading a two late scoring drives that put the Giants ahead with just over a minute remaining.

Sure, he played well Sunday, with eight catches for 131 yards and a TD, plus a 57-yard touchdown pass to Saquon Barkley. But given that offensive coordinator Norv Turner is known to mix things up from week to week, it wouldn't be a shocker if Turner leans a little more heavily on backup running back C.J. Anderson this week.
