3 TDs for DeAngelo: 21-10 for Panthers

Three possessions, 3 TDs for the Panthers' offense -- and No.34 has every one of them.

Carolina now leads the Giants 21-10 with 4:45 left in the second quarter. DeAngelo Williams' third TD was a 1-yarder, and came after Carolina already appeared to have scored once.

But the Giants challenged the on-field ruling of Steve Smith scoring on a short pass from the 3. Smith's right knee was shown to be down on the replay and the ball was re-spotted at the 1-yard line.

Although Williams scored the TD, the big play was an incredible 60-yard pass from Delhomme to Muhsin Muhammad. Muhammad made a double move on cornerback Aaron Ross and got very open, but Delhomme was late and a little short on his ball delivery.

Ross had a great chance for the interception, but the ball went right through his hands. Muhammad caught it at his waist and finished the 60-yard play inside the Giants' 10, and Carolina hammered it in from there.

Again: the report on Jonathan Stewart if you missed it in the last blog... He has a head injury and his return is questionable. They have not mentioned the word "concussion" in the pressbox yet, but certainly that's a strong possibility.
