The Giants face off against the Carolina Panthers, which is fitting since the Panthers were the team that demolished the Giants team in the last game in the old Meadowlands before it too was demolished. The Giants are not only hungry to open up their new stadium with a win, but to avenge the final loss in the old stadium as well.
This game should bring some answers to several offseason questions that have permeated both the Giants and Panthers. Can Matt Moore be an effective starting quarterback? Is the Panthers' Steve Smith healthy?
How will the Giants running game look with Ahmad Bradshaw as the lead stallion? How will the Giants defense under new coordinator Perry Fewell look?
