Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Season-high six sacks, with rookie Azeez Ojulari getting 2.5 and Leonard Williams all over the field, with 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits and six tackles. Williams and Lorenzo Carter combined to pressure Sam Darnold, forcing an intentional-grounding penalty in the end zone for a safety. Logan Ryan cracked Robby Anderson in the back for a pass breakup. James Bradberry, playing against his former team for the first time, stopped a Panthers drive with an interception on the 5-yard line of a Darnold overthrow. Panthers vowed to establish the run and finished with 56 rushing yards, so no dice there. LB Benardrick McKinney made some big hits in his Giants debut. Panthers had just 173 total yards and 11 first downs. And no touchdowns.
What to know: Chalk up last week as one bad game for Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. He was brilliant Sunday against the Panthers despite playing with a decimated supporting cast that was missing his top four playmakers, all sidelined by injury. Jones completed 22 of 33 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown, ran for 28 more yards and even made a diving, one-handed catch to add to his highlight reel. He also didn’t commit a turnover. To do it all without seven of his Week 1 starters made this all the more impressive, and another indication that he might be the franchise quarterback to build around. — Jordan Raanan
From @NFLGameDay: #Giants RB Saquon Barkley is out today and has an outside chance at next week. He should be back by Nov. 7. Meanwhile, the #Falcons welcome back star WR Calvin Ridley after a week away due to a mental health break. Kudus to ATL for taking care of their guy. pic.twitter.com/sk7Vp93Pxz— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 24, 2021
