Giants – Panthers (25-3): intractable in defense, New York suffocates Carolina

New York Giants (2-5) – Carolina Panthers (3-4) : 25-3

Four in a row for Carolina. After a promising start to the season, the Panthers are definitely back in line this Sunday, with a fourth consecutive defeat at the end of an offensively disastrous game. A “Dave Gettleman-bowl”, in which neither Christian McCaffrey nor Saquon Barkley appear, both selected in the first round by the current General Manager of the Giants. Sam Darnold (16/25, 111 yards, 1 interception), back at MetLife Stadium, forgot he was no longer playing for the home team.

The Giants, them, find the defensive leg that they lacked since the start of the season.

NY Special

After a first half that will not delight fans of the offensive game (12 cumulative possessions: 6 punts, 2 field goals and a safety), the Giants decide to open the game book. Perhaps inspired by the Philadelphia rivals and their legendary Philly Special. A trick play ends with a one-handed reception from the quarterback, just that.

A Pettis not for a man, a Giants leap when he scored

Deprived of his main injured targets (Kadarius Toney, Kenny Golladay, Saquon Barkley among others), Daniel Jones (23/33, 203 yards, 1 touchdown) must find new connections. The only touchdown at the reception of the match will be scored by Dante Pettis (5 receptions, 39 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 pass thrown, 16 yards). The ex-49ers mark on a contentious action, but confirmed after video review. A touchdown which allows the premises to widen the gap (12-3).

Darnold replaced, PJ Walker also martyred

In the fourth quarter, the score is still tight (15-3), but the game has already entered garbage time. Damn for damn, Matt Rhule tries to replace Sam Darnold by PJ Walker (3/14, 33 yards). Lost, the MVP of the late XFL will also be constantly harassed. At the end of the match, the New York pitchers will have been flattened 6 times (and 10 QB Hits). The rookie Azeez Ojulari particularly shone (5 tackles including 3 for loss, 2.5 sacks, 4 QB hits).

A second touchdown late in the game for the Giants, in the race, through Devontae Booker (14 races, 51 yards, 1 touchdown) and the case is folded. 25-3, final score.

If the Cowboys seem unattainable in the division, the Giants raise themselves up and can aim for second place, and unlikely wildcards. On the Panthers side, week after week, the Darnold bet seems more and more lost.
