The Carolina Panthers are taking on the New Orleans Saints in an NFC South match up on Sunday Night Football. The Saints punted to the Panthers and wide receiver Ted Ginn took off towards the side line.

He was tip-toeing along the side line when Saints punter Thomas Morstead tried to make a tackle. Punters aren’t known for their tackling skills and that was on display on this one. Morstead grabbed Ginn by the face mask causing him to spin around 180 degrees.

It occurred around the 47 yard line and the play was flagged. It was a 15 yard penalty and gave the Panthers the ball on the 32-yard line. The Panthers only managed to get a field goal though, but that gave them a six-point lead.
