Third-quarter blog: Panthers 21, Vikings 21

The Panthers retook the lead on their first possession of the third quarter, scoring on a 22-yard pass from Cam Newton to Steve Smith. It was Smith's fourth touchdown reception of the season.

The Panthers began the drive on their 20, and got big plays from receiver Legedu Naanee (a 23-yard reception) and Newton (24-yard run).

The Vikings answered with a long drive of their own, going 90 yards on 12 plays, tying the game 21-21 on a 9-yard by Adrian Peterson with 1:58 left in the third.

The Panthers remaining two possessions of the third quarter resulted in a pair of three-and-outs for a total of 17 yards. -- David Scott

I'm so sick of the officials screwing us. This happens every week. Something needs to be done.

Yes the refs were terrible, no question. But there's no excuse for an NFL kicker to miss a chip shot like that with the game on the line. Absolutely disgusting. Kasay NEVER would have missed that. Not a good way to endear yourself to Panther fans, Mare.

Nope you all are so right, Kasay would not have ever ever missed a sure "chip shot" like that. He chooses to make his mistakes on a lot bigger games, like maybe kick offs in the SuperBowl..........
