Not sure why Kelvin Benjamin was benched in the 3rd quarter of Carolina’s game against the Raiders, and maybe he wasn’t either after cameras caught him throwing a full blown temper tantrum on the sideline.

The benching came at a critical time when the Panthers were moving the ball on their way to a touchdown to take a 25-24 lead in the game. We’ll keep our eye on this one.
According to reports, Benjamin was taken out of the game due to health concerns regarding his shoulder. He would return and make his first touchdown catch since week 4.
