Giants/Panthers Live Blog – First Half

It seems every year the Giants end up doing really well, they have a moment when they get right to the brink of the season going off the rails, then rally. New York will be losing to a team by multiple scores in a game that could really bury them, only for the Giants to score something like 35 points in the fourth quarter and pull it out. Viewers have to spend the rest of the year hearing about how that victory was a dramatic turning point for them. In 2007, it was a September comeback against the Redskins that prevented the Giants from falling to 0-3. Last year, it was the dramatic late win in Dallas after losing four straight. Who knows if Sunday’s comeback will end up being that significant, but stopping what would have been an 0-2 start was certainly important for the time being.

Though New York did come away with a win over the Schiano Kneedivers, they paid dearly for it going into a short week. Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks, David Diehl and Domenik Hixon won’t be playing this evening. This week’s fantasy waiver star Andre Brown is said to be getting the majority of the carries for the Giants offense, with first-round pick David Wilson still occupied with being berated by Tom Coughlin for fumbling in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Because the transitive property is wrong, we all know that the Giants beat the Buccaneers and the Buccaneers beat the Panthers, therefore the Giants are the clear superior here. Cam Newton is just playing for fantasy points tonight. Kidding aside, if that were actually true, I’m sure a large contingent of NFL fans wouldn’t mind.
