Sunday’s matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the New York Giants may have been the most entertaining game of the 2015 season. The undefeated Panthers jumped out to a 28-point lead but the Giants came back to tie it. A game winning field goal by Graham Gano gave Carolina the 38-35 win.
But sideshow between the Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and the Panthers Cortland Finnegan and Josh Norman stole the show.
Early in the game, Beckham hit Finnegan with an open-handed punch for which Finnegan, not Beckham, was flagged.
After the game, Finnegan implied Odell may have been experiencing “that time of the month.”

Beckham also got into it with Josh Norman, hitting him with a punch and then stepping over him.
The Giants receiver committed four penalties during the game and should have been ejected for a dirty hit to Norman’s head. Josh Norman had enough of Beckham and took to twitter after the game to voice his opinion:

Odell not only committed a dirty hit on Norman but he also disrespected him by walking over him after scoring his first touchdown of the game.

At the end of the day, the Panthers were the one with the last laugh, they won 38-35 and are now 14-0.
