When Carolina could only advance the ball to the Giants 45-yard line, it looked like the Panthers had squandered an opportunity.
The Giants took the lead on a great touchdown catch by Saquon Barkley with about a minute to go, only to have their hearts ripped out by the Panthers as time expired. It was the longest field goal in franchise history. In back-to-back gamess, the Panthers have allowed Cincinnati's Andy Dalton and now Manning to throw for more than 300 yards against them, while at the same time only recording one sack per game (and the lone "sack" on Manning came when Manning dove to the ground before linebacker Luke Kuechly could even hit him).
Aside from the former Panthers returning to Charlotte, this is a pivotal game for the Panthers as they try to keep pace in a very competitive NFC South.
The heat remains on the New York Giants receiver and quarterback Eli Manning after a crushing 33-31 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The running game was limited to 65 yards on 15 carries. However, conditioning could be an issue since he hasn't played since last season. They called Collins for helmet-to-helmet contact with a defenseless receiver, and gifted the Panthers a first down. This game has the potential to be much closer than its spread if the Giants put it all together, yet National Football League oddsmakers do not seem to expect that to happen here in Week 5.
The 57-yard score represents the first passing touchdown in Beckham's career.
Will Manning be bold and challenge the Panthers secondary deep with Beckham and Latimer, or will he remain conservative and settle for check downs. This week, they face a running back with a similar skillset as Kamara in Christian McCaffrey.
