Carolina Panthers: Key players to watch against New York Giants

Watch Cam Newton speaks on the Panthers signing Eric Reid

No Panthers player joined Reid in the demonstration on Sunday. "And I know that none of that will be a distraction". However, conditioning could be an issue since he hasn't played since last season.

Aside from the former Panthers returning to Charlotte, this is a pivotal game for the Panthers as they try to keep pace in a very competitive NFC South. The running game was limited to 65 yards on 15 carries.

Of course, what Kuechly didn't see too much of on tape this week were zone read options, something Shula ran frequently with Newton as his quarterback.

Saquon Barkley: What more can even be said about Barkley at this point? The Giants offense relies heavily on their passing game, but for this week they need to focus more on their ground game and make sure Barkley has at least 20 carries. However, Stewart suffered a foot injury that landed him on injured reserve this past week.




But the Giants roared back. Shurmur thinks that could give the defense a boost, saying "when you have a fresh body that has the talent, the skill and abilities of a pass rusher, it helps your defense".

Vernon has 40 ½ sacks over the past five seasons while playing mostly defensive end. The Giants rank No. 21 in passing yardage at 232.3 per game and No. 27 in rushing at just 82.0 yards per contest, good for 18.3 points overall, which ranks fifth-worst among National Football League teams. Corey Bojorquez stood up after taking the snap and tried a short pass back to kicker Stephen Hauschka under pressure from Brynden Trawick of the Titans.

Three bold expectations for the third home game of the season. He is light years ahead of where he was last year at this time.

Though Newton has been sacked six times, his 28 rush attempts for 4.9 yards per offset that, and No. 1 backfield performer Christian McCaffrey has ben solid too. Carolina held Dallas, which averages 16.8 points per game (30th), scoreless until the fourth quarter of a 16-8 Week 1 Panthers win.
