In fact, the Carolina Panthers had more than one chance to win their game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Eddy Pineiro, the kicker, however, missed two critical kick attempts. The first one came after DJ Moore’s game-tying score when there was a chance to kick an extra point.

Instead, the failure of the extra-point attempt forced overtime. Pineiro would miss a second field goal attempt from 32 yards out, which would have given the Panthers the victory and allowed them to leave the stadium. With the help of their kicker Younghoe Koo, the Falcons were able to win the game.

Pineiro was naturally devastated by his performance during the competition. Pineiro noted in a post-game interview that “it hurts.” “I adore this group and feel confident that they have my back. I am aware that this will not define me as a kicker because everyone misses kicks. Unfortunately, both my time and mine were today. I’m going to recover and be prepared to fight back.

It’s also crucial to remember that the wide receiver was penalized for removing his helmet in celebration of Moore’s touchdown, which caused his extra point try to be set back 48 yards. Moore’s touchdown will be included on multiple highlight reels of Week 7 plays in the days to come.

The Panthers’ PJ Walker, who completed the game with 317 throwing yards, a touchdown, and an interception on 19 of 36 completions, provided the score with a 62-yard rocket of a pass.

Week 9’s assignment for the 2-6 Panthers was a road game against the Cincinnati Bengals, a team that had to cope with a predicament akin to Carolina’s with Pineiro in Week 1.

Eddy Pineiro, the Panthers’ kicker, breaks his silence over the missed field goals that ultimately cost Carolina the game.
