Panthers Preview: Will Darnold Find His Rhythm Again?
The Panthers began the 2021-2022 NFL season 3-0 and were amazing and surprising fans throughout the entire NFL. However, they are now 3-3 after losing their last 3 games. Though each game has been a close one (8 point or less point differential), Darnold’s quarterback play has visibly declined.
Over just the past three losses, Darnold has thrown for 6 interceptions and only 4 touchdowns on a measly 55% completion percentage. Darnold started the season hot, but has steeply worsened and now the question arises whether he will find his groove again. With one of the best defenses in the league, the Panthers are just average quarterback play away from being contenders.
Giants Preview: Injuries, Injuries, and more Injuries
The Giants have looked surprisingly promising this NFL season. Though their 1-5 record does not reflect that, Daniel Jones has taken a significant leap from his season last year and their defense looks very good. So why are the Giants not performing well then? Injuries.
Over just the past six games, the Giants have never had their entire wide receiving core healthy whether it be an injured Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepherd, Darius Slayton, or Kadarius Toney. And recently, with Saquon hurting his ankle, the Giants have very little offense to rely on.

Once the Giants are able to get more healthy and players begin to return, their record will turn around and the Giants could make a sneaky run for a wildcard spot.
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This Football Game
The current spread is at 3, favoring the Carolina Panthers. Personally, I believe the Panthers run away with it. Sam Darnold should be able to produce some touchdowns and their secondary will hold Daniel Jones and the Giants offense to a few points.
In terms of the MoneyLine, again I believe the Panthers are a lock.
