Carolina Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn (19) catches a touchdown pass as New Orleans Saints outside linebacker Craig Robertson (52) defends in the second quarter at Bank of America Stadium.

Ted Ginn Jr. has made a habit of making catches deep down the field for touchdowns during his time with the Carolina Panthers. Last season, four of his 10 scoring catches went for 25 yards or more, including three in the final four games.This year, however, Ginn has been limited down the field. That all changed on Thursday night against the Saints when the 10th-year receiver caught his first touchdown of the year in spectacular fashion.With 23 seconds remaining in the first half, Ginn streaked past his defender and Cam Newton laid a pass perfectly in his bread basket for a 40-yard touchdown. The official initially ruled the reception out of bounds, but it was quickly overturned upon review.
Cam + Ginn. TOUCHDOWN!WHAT A PLAY!: NBC + NFLN #TNF #NOvsCAR— NFL (@NFL) November 18, 2016
Kelvin Benjamin’s return paired with Cam Newton’s injury earlier this season have not helped Ginn’s stats, but he still clearly has a flair for the spectacular. Ginn’s touchdown was the longest play from scrimmage for the Panthers since Benjamin’s 50-yard reception against the Cardinals three weeks ago.While he’s been inconsistent his entire career, Ginn and Newton still have a strong connection. The Panthers will need to keep that going to open up the offense in the coming weeks against both the Raiders and Seahawks on the road.
