Shurmur further got Beckham involved by having him throw a 57-yard touchdown pass to Barkley in the second quarter on a gadget play, and Beckham became the first Giant since Frank Gifford in 1959 to both throw and catch a touchdown in a game.
Reid, who signed a one-year deal with Carolina last week, practiced with the first-team defense throughout this week and seemed to pick things up quickly.
His coach disagreed with the comments but Beckham still had no regrets about what he said on Sunday. Whatever he decides, Newton has his back.
He said running out of the smoky tunnel before the game for the first time in his career was "pretty special" and made him feel like Cam Newton.

This week, Amazon announced that it will raise the minimum wage for all US workers to $15 per hour, starting in November. Economists also noted that the initial September payrolls growth estimate tended to be revised higher.
"I haven't felt any more closer than I have in the last 24 hours", Beckham said. "Whatever happened in the past, that happened". All of that other stuff, y'all can write, he said. That is the longest such drought in the league. By all indications, Reid's new teammates are simply excited to have another Pro Bowl player on the roster. "What he does on the football field is going to impact this team. And I understand that, and I know that".
Reid, 26, has declined to say whether he will protest during the anthem moving forward, adding he is still considering various forms of protest. If that was the issue, it would be a problem. But that's not the way it works. "Eric is a social justice warrior, continues to support his family and communities in need". We all understand what he's fighting for, so if that's something he decides to do, that's what he decides to do. So if that's something he decides to do, it's what he decides to do.
"Even though we're 1-4", Beckham said, "this game today is going to be monumental for our season in my eyes".
After he converted the kick he said his main goal was seeking safety from the rest of his teammates running after him.
