New York Giants Get Week 1 Victory, Suffer Major Losses in Injuries

The New York Giants got a victory against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon, successfully opening up their new stadium in the regular season.

Aside from the defense and Eli Manning loving Hakeem Nicks in the red zone, almost everything looked awful for the team.

Maybe it's just me being a pessimist, but I can't feel confident this team would beat anyone with a decent offense.

They just gave up the ball on offense way too many times; combine that with the horrible kickoff coverage, and you get the Panthers having an average starting position of around their 40-yard line.

It's a wonder the defense could hold them to 16 points (plus a safety, which doesn't go against the defense).

That being said, they still have time to get the running game going.

If the defense is going to play that well all year, this team has a chance to seriously contend for the division title, despite being picked to finish third or fourth by all major media outlets that don't have Peter King working for them.
