NY Giants defeat Panthers in Week 2, secures 2nd win in a row

EAST RUTHERFORD – The Giants have opened the season with two victories for the first time since 2016.

Graham Gano kicked four field goals and the Giants’ defense was outstanding when it counted, even after losing stalwart Leonard Williams, as Brian Daboll and Co. escaped with a 19-16 triumph over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

I win hit his second field goal of more than 50 yards, a 56-yarder with 3:34 left, to put the Giants ahead by three.

Carolina threatened on its next possession, marching to just shy of midfield before a third-down sack by Julian Love turned the momentum in the Giants’ favor. Defensive coordinator Wink Martindale dialed up the pressure and Love blitzed on the inside of rookie left tackle Ickey Ekwonu, racing into the backfield untouched and decking Mayfield.
