ANIMATED: Jimmy Graham's Dive Buys Saints Time For FG

Jimmy Graham has scored eight touchdowns in his NFL career, but expect him to soon be known for this little performance. With time running out on the first half, the Saints tight end took the kind of dive Italian soccer players would be proud of, drawing a penalty on Chris Gamble to give the Saints a chance to close the half with field goal.

John Kasay made sure Graham's histrionics were rewarded when he nailed the 46-yard field goal as time expired. The Saints went into the half with a 20-13 lead.

Panthers players were understandably less than pleased, making all kinds of gestures to Graham that didn't exactly require sign-language fluency.
