Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro is not very popular in Carolina right now.

On Sunday, Pineiro missed several kicks that could have won the Panthers their game against the Falcons.

After DJ Moore scored a late touchdown to tie the game 34-34 with 12 seconds left, he was penalized for taking off his helmet while celebrating.

Pineiro missed the ensuing 48-yard xtra point attempt, and the game went to overtime.

During the overtime period, Pineiro missed a 33-yard game-winning field goal attempt.

The Panthers went on to lose the game, and a video of Pineiro taking selfies during pregame warmups went viral.

Panthers fans are now calling for Pineiro to get cut for taking selfies instead of practicing.
