Panthers 34 Falcons 10: GIFs by Quarter

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

I'm continuing my experiment how best to use GIFs on a weekly basis. For the moment I'm trying one key, under the radar GIF from each quarter of the Panthers most recent game. So here are four GIFs you won;t see on the highlight reel but were key to the game.

Okay, maybe after this one from the 1st quarter they will be key plays. This one is too classic to skip!

Tolbert does the Dirty Bird! I'm a bad, bad boy ;) Of course the TD drive was set up by a Kuechly INT but you can see that on NFL.com.

Moving on the second quarter we have arguably the best special teams return of the season:

I'm ecstatic to see our special teams starting to step up and perform. This is perfect blocking that left only one man and the kicker left to prevent the TD. The return gave the offense a short field and they capitalized by scoring their 2nd TD. I would love to see more of that this weekend.

In the 3rd quarter we have one of the more athletic, 'johnny hustle' type of plays we have seen this season:

Huge kudos to Davis for turning and running towards the ball as soon as he saw the QB draw his arm back. That is veteran play right there that flips the field for the Panthers. You just can't emphasize enough how important that type of hustle is to a team's chances of winning. Hat tip to Mickel as well of course for being in position to tip the ball. A huge play that ended a Falcons drive.

This 4th quarter GIF exemplifies an old saying that comes to mind:

Lafell

He does make a nice catch and props to the DB for executing a perfect punch on the ball. But from there it is Lady Luck shining on LaFell. As you know the Panthers scored on the next play which was then followed by Drayton's pick 6, game over! The football Gods favor these Panthers from Carolina!

So do you like these GIFs I bring you Panther fans?
