Manning and Newton should put up big numbers tonight. New York Giants (1-1) @ Carolina Panthers (1-1)
Last week, Eli Manning and the Giants were down 27-13 in the third quarter. What did Manning do? Nothing much, just led his team on five scoring drives including two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter.  He finished with 510 yards, 3 TDs, and 3 INTs. Not too shabby.  Cam Newton might not have had the big yardage day that Manning had, but he was extremely efficient.  In 20 pass attempts he gained 253 yards and 1 TD.  Not too mention the 71 yards and 1 TD he gained on the ground.  These two will be the stars of the game but there are some other key players that will not see the field tonight.  Hakeem Nicks is inactive tonight after a 199 yard performance last week. Ahmad Bradshaw is also inactive. The Panthers will be without their starting running back as well, with Jonathan Stewart watching from the sidelines tonight.  I don't expect either offense to struggle too much but early on could be a feeling out process, especially for the Giants.  Cam Newton could have an explosive game that shows his overall talent.  Panthers get the win 34-27.
