Luke Kuechly comments on what Eric Reid brings to Panthers defense

The New York Giants suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and defensive lineman Damon "Snacks" Harrison felt that they didn't only lose because of an insane game-winning 63-yard field goal. He was 4 for 4 on field goal attempts and has made 35 in a row at home dating back to 2016.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Carolina needed to get through the first four games with no worse than a 3-1 record to be a legitimate playoff contender and keep pace with the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South with consecutive road games against Washington and Philadelphia coming up. Olsen will give Newton his favorite target after a two-interception performance that kept this one in jeopardy until the end.

Panthers safety Eric Reid knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial and social injustice. Odell Beckham Jr., had a big game as a receiver and passer.

The Giants took the lead on a great touchdown catch by Saquon Barkley with about a minute to go, only to have their hearts ripped out by the Panthers as time expired.

However, New York was able to respond with a go-ahead drive that was capped off by a 15-yard pitch-and-catch between Eli Manning and rookie running back Saquon Barkley.

As he did with the San Francisco 49ers over the last seasons, he kneeled during the playing of the national anthem.

Barkley jumped over a defender to score the final touchdown of the day for the Giants late in the fourth quarter.
