Carolina Panthers' Steve Smith is considered the Michael Jordan of the NFL after he decided to take the last game against Chicago Bears in his own hands and surprised everyone taking the breath out of the crowd.
The NFL player caught 12 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns; his 12 receptions tied for the second most in a NFL playoff game. Smith scored a 39-yard touchdown on a pass in the third quarter, after cornerback Chris Thompson fell while chasing him down the sideline, and Smith's 22-yard run off a reverse midway through the fourth helped the Panthers hold off Chicago on a NFL game that ended 29 - 21 with a victory for Carolina.
It should have been a hard game since Carolina's leading rusher DeShaun Foster's right ankle was broken on a tackle by linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer early in the third quarter.
On the next NFL game, Smith will show his abilities playing against the Seattle Seahawks. Next Sunday will be a different challenge because the Seahawks understand the importance of taking away an opponent's biggest threat. We'll see if Steve Smith's inspiration remains.
