The Carolina Panthers are in a terrible situation. Their third-year head coach is in the hot seat in the professional game, and they’re looking at the final game on their schedule in six weeks that appear to be winnable.
If they cannot defeat the Giants, they will face the Saints, Cardinals, 49ers, Rams, and Buccaneers before hosting Atlanta in Week 8. If Carolina doesn’t win this week, Matt Rhule might not make it through the first half of the season. David Tepper is one of the league’s newest owners and has already demonstrated willingness to makesignificantbig mark.
Meanwhile, the Giants are on a roll. For the first time in years, Saquon Barkley looked like Saquon Barkley. They recently defeated the Titans in Nashville, completing their coach’s first-ever victory.
The question is whether Daniel Jones can be New York’s starting quarterback following this season. He was fine through the air a week ago, but turnovers have been the story of his career thus far.
