Graham Gano's 63-yard field goal thwarts Giants comeback in Panthers win

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 Video: Cam Newton Will Support Eric Reid In Fight Against Social Injustice

When Ron Rivera spoke with media on Monday, he revealed that the goal was to get newly signed safety Eric Reid on the field as much as possible for Sunday's match-up against the New York Giants.

Panthers safety Eric Reid knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial and social injustice.

After the game he discussed his decision to bring the protest from (generally thought of as progressive) San Francisco to (generally thought of as not) Carolina.

Reid, 26, has declined to say whether he will protest during the anthem moving forward, adding he is still considering various forms of protest.

Reid, who is African-American, signed a one-year contract with the Panthers and said that he plans to "continue to speak for my people" and use his platform to talk about injustices. "Eric is going to be ready to play ball this weekend and he's going to help the Carolina Panthers win".

Ex-president Lee Myung-bak sentenced to 15 years in prison
Lee, who posted a handwritten note on Facebook denying the most of the charges, has one week to appeal. It said Lee committed those crimes before and during his presidency, from 2008 to 2013.

There's an individual matchup in this game that the Panthers should exploit for major yards and points.

Jonathan Stewart, Carolina's all-time leading rusher, was placed on injured reserve last week by NY.

Vernon has 40 ½ sacks over the past five seasons while playing mostly defensive end. Its offense is a product of great rushing, first and foremost by its dual-threat quarterback Cam Newton. He has at least 100 all-purpose yards in all four of the Giants games and is second on the team in receptions with 27. That could be a major problem this week with Newton taking snaps.

Three bold expectations for the third home game of the season. 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. So it shouldn't be too hard to figure out what Carolina wants to do Sunday. It looked like a risky decision, considering 63 yards is the National Football League record and Gano's career-high came from 59 yards.
