Carolina is absolutely shocking the New York Giants here in New Jersey. The Panthers scored on their first four possessions - the latest a two-yard TD pass from Matt Moore to tight end Jeff King.
(UPDATE: Carolina finally didn't score on possession No.5, offering up its first punt of the game. The Giants got the ball one last time, couldn't get it in the end zone, either, and so it's 24-0, Carolina, at halftime. The Panthers have caused three first-half turnovers. Let's just say that video tribute to Giants Stadium at halftime isn't going over that well right now -- the fans aren't in the mood).
The Panthers' third TD was set up when cornerback Richard Marshall jumped on a slant route and intercepted Eli Manning. That gave Carolina the ball on the Giants' 29. The Panthers converted a third-and-11 with a short pass to Mike Goodson, then soon thereafter were in the end zone again.
Weird, isn't it?
Where was this Panther team for the past 3 months?
