THE NEW YORK GIANTS thumped the Carolina Panthers 36-7 at the Bank of America Stadium in last night’s NFL action.
The Giants got out to a commanding 20-0 lead at half-time and after being outscored in the third term 7-6, finished strongly with another 10 points to nothing in the final quarter to complete the rout.
The win was the reigning champions’ second in a row, after they lost their season opener to Dallas, and came thanks largely to the efforts of star quarterback Eli Manning.
Manning completed 27 of 35 passes for a total of 288 yards, including a Martellus Bennett touchdown. The Giants’ win was made even more impressive given they were missing the likes of Hakeem Nicks, Ahmad Bradshaw and David Diehl due to injury.
