Gano makes 63-yard game-winning FG vs. Giants

The Carolina Panthers are coming off a 31-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals last time out, and this week it hosts the New York Giants as 7-point favorites at Noon on FOX.

Because it happened on a Panthers punt.

Colin Jones and rookie Rashaan Gaulden could rotate in at Reid's spot, but the Panthers had a need at the position after Da'Norris Searcy was placed on Injured Reserve.

Reid signing came with controversy as the new Panther is still suing the NFL, saying the league colluded to keep him out during offseason free agency.

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 spoke to the media in Charlotte for the first time last Monday wearing a black T-shirt with #IMWITHKAP on the front. "And I'll make that decision later".

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.

"Everything outside of football, I'm pretty sure as the teammate that I've always been, I'm going to stand by him", Newton said. "All that other stuff y'all can write".

Receiver Torrey Smith said conversation about potential protests before the games hasn't gone down in the locker room since Reid joined the team, the report states.

"He does whatever he feels in his heart", Smith said.

A horrific penalty against safety Landon Collins, which was anything but a penalty, helped extend the Panthers' subsequent drive, which ended with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey, giving Carolina a 27-16 lead midway through the fourth quarter. He would later add a 33-yard TD catch of his own and finished with 131 yards receiving on eight catches only to watch NY lose 33-31 on a 63-yard field goal by Graham Gano with one second left.
