Saints vs. Panthers GIF Review

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Due to the Holiday interruption I failed to post the GIFs from the Panthers key 17-14 win over the Saints but I certainly can't let them go to waste.

So let's start with the star of the defense for the Panthers DE Greg Hardy. Hardy had a record day lined up on the rookie LT Terron Armstead. With 2:09 left in the 1st qtr Hardy lines up on the inside but takes and outside move on Armstead. He uses a swim move to get past the tackle to drill Brees.

Hat tip to the coverage as well

2nd qtr at the 2:00 warning LB Thomas Davis fakes a blitz but then drops into coverage and makes a beautiful play on the ball.

That's in the running for defensive play of the year.

Ted Ginn has made some nice plays for the Panthers including a couple in this game. This first one with 9:53 in the 3rd qtr goes for 29 yds and sets up a Panther FG:
I love how fast he can accelerate once he catches the ball.

This last one is Ginn again for what might be his most critical catch as a Panther. With less than a minute in the game (:55) Ginn runs a deep dig and goes for 37 yds critical yards.

Newton did a really nice job hanging in the pocket on that one too. Hat tip to the offensive line for playing stout.
