Panthers stay perfect with 38-35 win over Giants, comment on Beckham's conduct
Sunday December 20th, 2015

New York Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and the Carolina Panthers defense had an eventful afternoon.

Throughout the game, Beckham and cornerback Josh Norman were involved in several physical altercations. At one point, Beckham even launched himself into Norman’s head. 

Afterwards, several Panthers voiced their displeasure with his actions, and cornerback Cortland Finnegan took things a step further by supposing the wideout had personal issues.

“He may have something in his blood,” Finnegan told reporters after the game. “Maybe it's female related.”

After the game, Norman retweeted an image poking fun at Beckham.

A few other Panthers, including Norman, sounded off.

Beckham weighed in on his penalties:

The Carolina defense held the second-year receiver without a catch in the first half, but he broke through with six grabs for 76 yards and a game-tying touchdown in the second.

The Panthers won 38–35 on a last-second field goal to improve to 14–0.
