Sam Darnold sacked by teammate in funny blooper
Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers have come crashing down to earth after a 3-0 start to the season. One play against the New York Giants on Sunday showed just how badly things were going for the Panthers.
Carolina was trailing the Giants 5-3 in the third quarter and had a 3rd-and-2. Darnold tried to avoid some pressure from Leonard Williams. Azeez Ojulari came in to help bring Darnold down for a sack. What was funny was seeing Brady Christensen tackling his own quarterback.

Williams and Ojulari shared the sack. But Christensen should have gotten credit with half a sack as well.
Darnold finished 16/25 for 111 yards and an interception in the 25-3 loss. He was benched late for PJ Walker.
