The New York Giants (1-1) play the Carolina Panthers (1-1) Thursday night at Bank of America Stadium from Charlotte, NC. Game starts at 8:20 pm on NFL Network (TV) and WFAN (Radio). Panthers favorites over Giants. Spread is - 2.5 points. My picks is the Giants. Big Blue will enter the jungle playing the Panthers tomorrow night without 3 of the starters in Hakeem Nicks, Ahmad Bradshaw and David Diehl, but I still think they can win this game with Eli Manning. Here are the three keys for the Giants in order to win: (1) Eli Manning needs to have another MVP type game if they are going to outscore the Panthers because Carolina's offense is tough especially when they have a QB named Cam Newton. (2) The pass rush has to get to the QB (Cam Newton) to make it easy for their defense and the secondary who have been awful as in unit in the first two weeks of the season. (3) Do not turn the football over. The Giants turn the ball over three times this past Sunday against the Buccaneers who scored 21 unanswered points, even though the Giants won. They cannot do that this time around or they will lose. Injury Report: Giants Out: WR Hakeem Nicks (Foot), RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Neck), WR Dominek Hixon (concussion), T David Diehl (Knee), DE Adewale Ojomo (Hamstring) Questionable: CB Michael Coe (Hamstring) Panthers Out: G Mike Pollak (Shoulder) Questionable: LB Thomas Davis (Hamstring), T Byron Bell (Ankle), RB Jonathan Stewart (Ankle), S Colin Jones (Shoulder) Final score is Giants 31, Panthers 27
