The game will mark the home debut of first-year head coach Brian Daboll.
The Giants defeated the Panthers, 25-3, last season. That game was also at MetLife Stadium.
Here is how the teams match up statistically after Week 1:
The Giants played Week 1 without edge defenders Kayvon Thibodeaux (sprained MCL) and Azeez Ojulari (calf). Rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson suffered a knee injury against the Titans. Availability for all three against Carolina is unknown at this writing.
Former Giants head coach Ben McAdoo (2016-17) is currently Carolina’s offensive coordinator. Giants GM Joe Schoen was a ticket intern for Carolina in 2000 and then a scout from 2001-2007.
