Carolina cornerback Josh Norman expects he'll have Eli Manning's full attention Thursday night.
He says Manning probably can't resist testing out an inexperienced rookie trying to cover Hakeem Nicks or Victor Cruz one-on-one on the outside.
Norman says ''I expect I'll have a target on my back, but I'm ready.''
The Panthers thought they might get a few starters out of this year's NFL draft, but Norman wasn't expected to be one of them - at least not right away.
Surprisingly, the fifth-round selection out of tiny Coastal Carolina has made a smooth transition to the NFL and unseated two-year starter Captain Munnerlyn despite missing most of training camp with a strained hamstring.
Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott says Norman has shown ''the game isn't too big for him.''

Total Eli Manning shinefest right here! I wouldn’t have went with Eli’s “Durh” face. Of the five QB phenomenons we know about I’d have to say “Griffin’ing” may be my new favorite. Guy is a stud.

There were many outstanding performances in Week 2, some were even record-breaking. Some with names that you probably don’t even have on your roster. And then there were those that disappointed the owners who drafted them so soon (and in most cases so high) on draft day. Here is a list of both studs and duds that stood out last week:
