Carolina is still clinging to a 14-13 lead over New Orleans midway through the third quarter.
The field goal was set up by the Panthers' first turnover of the game. On a punt return, Captain Munnerlyn had a full head of steam and ran directly into New Orleans long snapper Jason Kyle (the former Panther).
Munnerlyn fumbled, nearly recovered it but then lost it. When he came out of the pile, he wobbled a couple of steps and fell back down. Somehow, he's still playing.
New Orleans took over at the Carolina 29 but the Panthers' defense held and forced John Carney's second field goal of the game -- a 32-yarder with 4:58 to go in the third quarter. Carolina still leads by a point.
