The Giants travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers, tonight. Eli Manning is less than a week removed from throwing for over 500 yards in a victory over the Buccaneers. Unfortunately for him, he'll be without Ahmad Bradshaw, Dominik Hixon, David Diehl and Hakeem Nicks. Andre Brown will carry the load instead of first round pick David Wilson.

Meanwhile, the Carolina Panthers rebounded last week with a victory over the Saints. Cam Newton looked lethargic in week 1, but he made up for it in week 2, throwing for 253 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 71 yards and a rushing touchdown. Jonathan Stewart was listed as questionable going into this contest, so the Panthers are likely to rely heavily on DeAngelo Williams and the arm of Cam Newton.
