Cam Newton was knocked out of the game with a possible concussion. The Carolina Panthers were down by 18 to the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta in the fourth quarter. None of that mattered to Derek Anderson and Greg Olsen.
After Anderson led Carolina’s offense into the red zone (completing every single pass he attempted), he capped the drive off with a touchdown pass to Olsen. But as good as Anderson had been on the drive, the touchdown was all about Olsen, who had to turn his body around and haul it in with one hand.
Just watch this thing of beauty.
Let's just sit back and enjoy this INSANE @GregOlsen88 one-handed TD…

This play pulled Carolina to within 10 points after Anderson hit Olsen again on a two-point conversion.
Unfortunately the good times didn’t last. Julio Jones, who had one of the biggest games we’ve seen in years, took a slant pattern 75 yards for a touchdown on the next Atlanta possession.
