ANIMATED: Giants' Deon Grant Flops To Slow Rams Offense

Bad news, American football fans. Sports' flopping pandemic, which has spread from the world's football to our shores [via basketball] has finally reached our nation's most manly athletic league.

It looked like Giants safety Deon Grant cramped up during the first quarter against the Rams on Monday Night Football. He fell to the ground, perhaps worn down by St. Louis' hurry-up offense, which had already hustled the Rams down the field for a pair of field goals. And after seeing the replay, it's clear the Rams offense caused Grant to hit the turf. ... But not because he cramped up or injured himself. He just needed a breather.

Gamesmanship or unsportsmanlike? Click the image below to check out the animated GIF and decide for yourself.
