The 0-1 Carolina Panthers will head into MetLife Stadium on Sunday not only trying to make good on their season-opening loss,
but also on their 2021 loss to these same New York Giants.
The Panthers are 7-5 all-time against the Giants, with wins in three of their last four clashes.
New York, however, has the most recent set of bragging rights.
And those came just 325 days ago—when they dominated Carolina, 25-3, in their Week 7 meeting of the 2021 campaign.
For the Panthers to “upset” the Giants, they have to start with doing the little things correctly.
As that pertains to the offense, quarterback Baker Mayfield has to continue finding his groove.
Last week’s chances at a win were marred by a largely dysfunctional outing, one that included four botched snaps and an interception
Mayfield and the unit did get on track, as head coach Matt Rhule would gladly tell you,
to close out the game in a 17-point fourth quarter—but the damage was already done.
