New York Giants
The New York Giants made the biggest surprise at beginning of the new season. They defeated the Tennessee Titans at road as an underdog and Brian Daboll era started in best possible way. Saquon Barkley looked excellent and Daniel Jones showed that there is still a chance for him to succeed in this league.
In the next 15 days, the Giants will play three consecutive games at home. They have an extremely good chance to start this season with 4-0, which would be much more than what everyone expected. Since departure of Tom Coughlin, this franchise has been unable to find a true leader, but Daboll seems to be the man they needed. The Panthers have a very bad run defense which means that Barkley will again have a huge number of yards and this is something that the Giants will exploit to maximum.
After a big win in Nashville, one of the questions was lack of snaps for talented Kadarius Toney. Last year’s first round pick is one of the best young wide receivers in the NFL and there is a possibility that he will get many more snaps and targets already in this matchup.
The Carolina Panthers didn’t start this season well. Gambling with Baker Mayfield at quarterback position didn’t seem like the best option in the first round against his former team (Cleveland Browns).
Panthers head coach Matt Rhule is on the hot seat. In his first two seasons, they achieved only five wins in both occasions and it is clear to everyone that he must lead this team to the playoffs, otherwise Dave Tepper will have to look for a new voice in locker room. Christian McCaffrey is healthy and that is the best possible news for all Panthers fans. Although he didn’t have many carries against the Browns, he scored one touchdown and is slowly returning to his signature form.
This game is already extremely important for the Panthers. They have a tough schedule this year and if they lose to the Browns and Giants in first two weeks, they have no realistic chance to be in the playoffs. In that case, the ownership structure will hit the reset button.
These two teams played against each other last year in New York. Score was 25:3 for the Giants.
Nick McCloud, Jason Pinnock and Aaron Robinson are injured and won’t for the Giants, plus Kayvon Thibodeaux is questionable. Brandon Smith is the only player who will not play for the Panthers.
New York Giants vs. Carolina Panthers Prediction
The Giants looked incomparably better in Week 1 than the Panthers. Now, they will play in front of their fans, at the place where they humiliated this same opponent last year. Atmosphere around blue part of New York is much better at this moment and we should expect them to take advantage of the momentum and celebrate once again.
