Eli Manning doesn't have long to bask in the glow of the best passing game in New York Giants history. After torching the Bucs for a career high 510 yards (295 in the second half), the G-Men travel to Carolina to play Cam Newton and the Panthers.
Last week, both teams had the daunting task of avoiding an 0-2 start.
For the Giants, it seemed like for one half of football they were destined for 0-2. With three first-half interceptions, Manning was booed and was playing one of his worst games as a pro. The second half was magical. Manning and the Giants overcame a 14-point deficit, leading New York to a huge 41-34 win.
While Eli was getting it done with his arm, Cam Newton was getting it done with his legs.
Newton ran for a career-high 71 yards, leading the Panthers to a big 35-27 win over the Saints. More impressively, the Panthers as a team rushed for 219 yards—after rushing for just 10 yards total in Week 1.
