Carolina (7-10 last season) vs New York(10-7-1 last year)

Carolina Panthers vs New York Giants 8/16/2023 — The Panthers had a disappointing season in the previous year, securing the second position in the NFC South with an overall record of 7-10. As the season dragged on, Carolina improved, notably earning a 4-2 record in the final six games. Despite this progress, the team failed to reach the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year. The Panthers made their return to the field in Week 1 of the preseason, facing the Jets. However, the outcome proved challenging for Carolina as they suffered a 27-0 loss, trailing 13-0 by halftime. 

Conversely, the Giants have their sights set on a return to the playoffs this season. They concluded the 2022 season with a record of 9-7-1, securing the third position in the NFC East. This performance granted the Giants a spot in the Wild Card round and marked their first winning record since 2016. During the Wild Card Game, New York emerged victorious over the Vikings, scoring 31–24. However, their journey was cut short in the Divisional Playoffs, where the Eagles won with a commanding score of 38–7. In their initial preseason game this year, the Giants held a 13-3 lead against the Lions at halftime. Regrettably, the second half saw a turnaround, with the Giants ultimately succumbing to a 21-16 defeat after being outscored 18-3.

The Panthers’ defense grappled with 143 yards allowed from 32 rushing attempts, equating to an average of 4.5 yards per attempt on the ground. Against the aerial assault, Carolina conceded 15 completions out of 25 attempts, translating to a completion percentage of 60.0%, resulting in a total of 161 yards. The team managed 58 plays for a cumulative yardage of 203 as the game concluded.

Odds/Point Spread: New York Giants -3, Total Odds: 39

Although it would be difficult to gauge preseason games early on, both clubs need to do better in this second week. The New York offense only gained 216 yards (135 passing), had 13 first downs as opposed to the Lions’ 19, and only two out of fifteen third- and fourth-down attempts were successful. Even the backups couldn’t overcome the Jets’ defense for Carolina, who went 3-for-13 on third and fourth downs and made two mistakes. In this game, the key players should contribute a little more, and New York is expected to take the lead early enough to win.
