Best Of Social Media: Week 9 Patriots vs PanthersBob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina to take on the Panthers this past Sunday looking to not only extend their winning streak but go a game over .500 for the first time this season.

Waiting for them was cornerback Stephon Gilmore just weeks after the trade to his hometown team.

Check out how the game unfolded through all the best postings shared across social media before, during, and after the game.

In the first quarter, both offenses struggled to do much of anything as sloppy play and penalties kept the game scoreless.

A Zane Gonzalez field goal gave the Panthers the lead to open the second quarter, but the Patriots offense finally found a spark courtesy of running back Rhamondre Stevenson

The play helped set up a Damien Harris touchdown to give the Patriots a 7-3 lead.

The Panthers would answer with another field goal on the ensuing drive to draw within one at 7-6, but once again it was the Patriots running backs delivering big plays.

The Bolden reception contributed to another Patriots scoring drive just before halftime when Mac Jones found Hunter Henry in the end zone to increase the lead to 14-6.

In the third quarter, it appeared Sam Darnold was going to get the Panthers back in the game, J.C. Jackson had other ideas.

Jackson, aka “Mr. Int” picked off Darnold and returned it 88 yards to the house to give the Patriots some much-needed second-half breathing room by pushing the lead to 21-6.

With the clock winding down on the third quarter, the Patriots defense again gave Sam Darnold “ghost” flashbacks when Jamie Collins hauled in one of the most athletic interceptions you’ll ever see.

The Patriots capitalized on the turnover with a Nick Folk field goal to extend their lead to 24-7 as the defense closed the game out in the final quarter.

“Mr. Int” would record his second clutch interception of the day following this Darnold toss to the end zone.

Leading by 18, Jones got to exit the game early for Brian Hoyer and the Patriots would go on to win their straight game by a final score of 24-6 and come within one of the first place Buffalo Bills following their upset loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Patriots will return home to take on the 5-4 Cleveland Browns this Sunday afternoon.
