The Carolina Panthers are getting blown out by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football, but there was one positive moment for the Panthers and their fans. As wide receiver Steve Smith was crossing over the middle, Saints linebacker David Hawthorne thought he would be able to jam Smith off of his route.

Unfortunately for Hawthorne, Smith made sure that he would have to ice up, son, after the game as he slammed Hawthorne flat onto his back.

Here is a look at Steve Smith throwing Hawthorne to the ground:

    amazing. you watched the replay but somehow managed only to see the last second or two of it where the defender ended up on the ground. you conveniently missed the tough lick he put on smith immediately beforehand, which you gloss over as “attempted to put a jam on him.”

    oh well, whatever gets you some hits for your little blog.
