Refs Picked Up The Flag And The Panthers Picked Up Another Win
Monday Night Football was a nail biting, edge of your seat, hard hitting battle all the way down to the last second. The Carolina Panthers played one of their best games in years at home against the New England Patriots. Carolina controlled the first half of the game holding the Patriots to only 3 points while putting up 10 of their own. When both teams took the field after halftime, the knockdown drag out fight ensued.
Both teams ate up the clock in the second half and the Patriots fought to get their first lead of the game, 20-17, with just over 6 minutes left to play. Cam Newton and Panthers answered back by marching 83 yards down the field to score the game winning touchdown. Newton connected with Ted Ginn, who broke a tackle to run up the sideline into the end zone with 59 seconds left.
Tom Brady drove his team down the field to Carolina’s 18 yard line, with 4 seconds on the clock. Brady’s last effort to win the game ended with a Panthers’ interception in the end zone. Initially, there was a flag on the play, likely for pass interference. After discussions between the referees, the flag was picked up and they ruled there was no penalty on the play, finalizing the big win for the Panthers.
Carolina and New England are now both 7-3 for the season. The Panthers will travel to Miami on Sunday to face-off with the Dolphins (5-5) and the Patriots will host the Broncos (9-1). With only 6 weeks left in regular season, the Panthers and Patriots are both in the play-off hunt. By Sabrina Sales
