Gerald McCoy turned his BS penalty against Aaron Rodgers into a redemption story

An undeserved roughing the passer penalty gave way for a massive goal-line stop.

Gerald McCoy cost the Panthers 15 yards thanks to an underserved roughing the passer penalty. He wasn’t going to let it cost his team seven points.

McCoy was the star of a three-act play about a wronged man who finds justice, all over the span of less than five minutes of game time in Week 10’s showdown with the Packers. Twelve plays after his hit on a sprawling Aaron Rodgers was deemed too brutal for a quarterback, McCoy’s eclipse-creating takedown of Jamaal Williams made sure his past mistake had no impact on the scoreboard. In one drive, McCoy sapped his team’s momentum and then brought it back, possibly even stronger than before.

So how did it happen? It started with a very familiar play for Green Bay fans.

Lambeau Field was the setting for another bad body weight roughing the passer penalty

For once, the Packers were on the right side of a questionable roughing the passer via body weight call. Rodgers was flattened in his own end zone after just barely getting off a third-and-long screen pass that fell at Williams’ feet. But McCoy’s hit saw him roll through the former MVP rather than bear down on him with the full force of his body — much like Clay Matthews had in what should have been a game-sealing hit on Kirk Cousins last fall. And just like that Matthews hit, it led to a flag that turned a change of possession into a long drive downfield:

McCoy went to the side like the league wants... and they still threw a flag for "roughing the passer"... That's a HORRIBLE call. pic.twitter.com/bvIULMiha7

Instead of forcing Green Bay to punt from its own end zone toward the end of the second quarter, the Packers had a new set of downs. Rodgers quickly turned this second chance into big gains; Green Bay was in the Carolina red zone four plays later.

The Panthers regained their composure with their backs against the wall. Eight plays inside the red zone led to 17 yards, three first downs, and one overturned touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham. None of those plays led to points, however. With two seconds left on the clock and the ball at the one following a pass interference call in the end zone, Carolina just had to survive one more play to snuff out the Packers’ drive and keep a bad call from turning the tide of the game. Rather than settle for a field goal, Green Bay was going to make its last play of the half a shot at the end zone — and it was going to have to get through the Panthers’ defensive line to get there.

Then McCoy roared back to life

McCoy had been neutralized in the dozen plays following his roughing the passer flag. The Packers planned to dive right back into his lair facing first-and-goal from the 1-yard line with only two seconds left in the half. Rodgers handed the ball off to Williams for a dive up the middle — only to be met immediately by the defensive tackle who had a little extra motivation to keep Green Bay out of the end zone.

Gerald McCoy absolutely did not want to let a nonsense penalty cost his team 7 points.
but also, David Bakhtiari proobbbbbaaaabbbbly could've done a better job here pic.twitter.com/eyQHqK9Ojk

McCoy ran through Williams like a plow destroying a snowman, with an assist from Vernon Butler. The clock ran out on the second quarter, leaving the Packers with an 86-yard drive that ended in zero points. Minutes after kick-starting Green Bay’s offense, the veteran lineman shut off the ignition and kept his team from a two-possession deficit at the half.

McCoy didn’t exactly need redemption after a bad call cost his team, but he showed the Panthers can rely on him in big moments by being the man to ruin the Packers’ scoring hopes. With one monster charge at the goal line, the former Buccaneer wiped out nearly a full field’s length of progress and kept his team within striking distance at Lambeau Field. That’s exactly what Carolina was hoping for when it signed him this offseason.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped late presidential bids and suggested efforts should redirected to winning state legislatures
YURI GRIPAS/Reuters Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York called out late entries into the 2020 presidential race in a tweet on Thursday. The congresswoman from New York said that rather than "setting ablaze hundreds of millions of dollars" on these late-to-the-game presidential bids, efforts instead should be redirected to "winning majorities of state legislatures across the United States." Last week former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg took steps to enter the 2020 race. On Thursday, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced he was joining the already-crowded group of 2020 candidates with less than 90 days to the Iowa caucuses. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York called out late entries into the 2020 presidential race in a tweet on Thursday. "Call me radical, but maybe instead of setting ablaze hundreds of millions of dollars on multiple plutocratic, long-shot, very-late presidential bids, we instead invest hundreds of millions into winning majorities of state legislatures across the United States?"

Taylor Swift accused Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta of blocking her from performing old songs at the AMAs
In a Thursday evening tweet, Taylor Swift revealed the latest plot twist in her feud with Scooter Braun a music mogul most frequently associated with Justin Bieber. Swif accused Braun and Scott Borchetta, who founded her former label Big Machine Records, of impeding her upcoming performance at the AMAs. Big Machine owns the masters of Swift's songs recorded before she made the switch to Universal Music Group last year. Braun acquired Big Machine Records earlier this year, along with a back catalog of Swift's music. She also wrote in the statement that Netflix was creating a documentary about her life, but claimed that Braun and Borchetta have "declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film." Swift decided to walk away from Big Machine after she wasn't able to buy back her records; instead she would have to "earn" them back one at a time for every future album she made. Swift announced this summer that she planned to re-record her albums in November of 2020 to regain ownership of her old music. The singer claimed that Braun and Borchetta would only allow her to use her music to perform at the AMAs and in the Netflix documentary if Swift agreed not to re-record versions of her songs and to "stop talking" about Borchetta and Braun.
