The game is now going down in history books as the largest 4th-quarter comeback in Carolina history, and the first time since 1985 that a road team didn't score by the 4th quarter and came back by over 17 points to win the game (the last time this happened was Minnesota vs Philadelphia on December 1, 1985).

"We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin", Reid, 26, said after the game.

According to ESPN, Reid and Jenkins have been at odds since late last season, when Jenkins, who cofounded the Players Coalition, stopped kneeling during the national anthem after the NFL announced it would donate $100 million to causes considered important to the coalition. But Reid has been highly critical of Jenkins for allegedly working too closely with the National Football League and hanging the players out to dry, even calling the Coalition an "NFL-created subversion group".

But Reid was not a fan of the deal especially since he and anthem protest inventor Colin Kaepernick were not part of the negotiation team.

As the two teams went out on the field before the game Sunday, Reid and Jenkins began to jaw, a moment caught on camera.

Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick to fight police brutality and social injustice when both were members of the 49ers.

Eric Reid is NOT getting along well with the Philadelphia Eagles.

After the game Reid initially refused to talk about the situation, before blasting Jenkins and calling him a sellout. "It's cowardly. He sold us out".

"I'm not going to get up here and say anything negative about that man", he told reporters.
