If only I had results like last week every week?

I won with the Giants, Seahawks and Cardinals but came up short with the Chiefs. I still have a few weeks to try to at least get back to .500 for the season.

Here are this week?s picks. I?ll be using the point spreads from Yahoo! Sports. Feel free to include your picks for these or any other of the week?s games in the comments section. Good luck!

I can?t seem to shake the 2-2 week, but at least it?s better than 1-3 or 0-4

The Colts mounted a late comeback and the Chiefs took care of the Bills for my two wins. The Seahawks relied on a late comeback and therefore did not cover, and the Ravens were a complete disappointment against the Browns.

Here are this week?s picks. I?ll be using the point spreads from Yahoo! Sports. Feel free to include your picks for these or any other of the week?s games in the comments section. Good luck!

Eli Manning was sacked seven times by the Panthers Sunday.

by Jon Wagner / SNYGiants columnist

Although the New York Giants (0-3 for the first time since 1996) and Carolina Panthers (1-2) each entered Bank of America Stadium seeking their first wins of the season, they couldn?t have played more differently on Sunday.

All the blame from the Giants? 38-0 blowout loss against the Carolina Panthers will be centered on the offensive line?s brutal performance in allowing Eli Manning to be sacked seven times.

But the defense also fell apart in the second half ? turning a somewhat close 17-0 halftime deficit into an insurmountable Panthers? lead.

Perry Fewell?s defense was focused all week on containing Cam Newton, just like the unit did last year in the Giants? 36-7 Week 3 win in Carolina. Newton however had other plans this go-around, as he burned Big Blue?s defense with both his arm and his legs.

The Giants (0-2) are favored by 1 over the Carolina Panthers (0-2). The over/under is 47. We see the Giants coming back home winners. They won't solve many of their underlying issues, and it won't be pretty but If they limit their turnovers and play a clean game, they should win handily.

Jim Mancari: ?If there was ever a must-win in Week 3 of an NFL season, it is this weekend for the Giants against the Carolina Panthers. Very few teams can recover from an 0-2 start, but it's the way the Giants have reached 0-2 that is even more troubling than the record. Now, every aspect of the Giants' play is not going to automatically improve all in the same week just because the Giants need a victory. Big Blue instead needs to start the process of improving in a few major areas, especially the running game, getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks and eliminating turnovers.

Cam Newton has gotten off to a slow start for Carolina, but the Panthers' defense is no slouch. Many experts are expecting the Giants to head down to Carolina and bury the Panthers, but the team is not yet ready for that. However, it is ready to get on the board in the win column, no matter how that is achieved. I'm expecting a much closer game that features plenty of offense. The Giants need to turn field goals into touchdowns, which could be the first step on the road to recovery.....Giants 31, Panthers 24

Last season, the Giants traveled to Carolina in Week 3 in desperate need of a big win. The team had split the opening two games but really had trouble finding its groove.

This year, the Giants head to Carolina in Week 3 as an 0-2 team, so they?ll try to get into the win column against an electric young quarterback: Cam Newton.

But through two weeks, Newton has been anything but electric, but that hasn?t stopped Giants? defensive coordinator Perry Fewell from preparing his defense to face the Panthers? offense.

Giants? offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride knows that just because the Carolina Panthers? secondary may be a little banged up, that doesn?t mean Sunday?s matchup will be an automatic victory.

That?s because the Giants have struggled to an 0-2 start out of the gate, with turnovers plaguing what the team has been able to muster offensively.

The focus for Big Blue has been to try to establish a running attack, but now that Carolina will be shorthanded in the secondary, hopefully the Giants will try to exploit their opponent?s weakness.

The Giants are 0-2 and face another 0-2 team in the Carolina Panthers. Sure, the Giants can move the football through the air and beat the Panthers last season pretty handily last season down there, but they are not looking past this game by any stretch.

"Their front seven is very, very talented. They get a good rush on the quarterback," said QB Eli Manning of the Panthers' defense. "Their linebackers are good. Their secondary is a little banged up right now, but they have a good scheme and have good players and they?re playing good defense and they?ve been really good in the red zone so far."

Eli has to eliminate his carelessness with the football first before he can begin showing mastery over other teams. The Giant are -8 in the takeaway category. No other other team has a ratio higher than -4.

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

The Giants head to Carolina to take on the Panthers Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. in what is shaping up to be a must-win game for Big Blue.

The Giants are 4-3 in seven regular season meetings against Carolina. Last season, the G-Men pounded the Panthers 36-7 in Carolina and will be looking for a similar effort this weekend.

The Giants were supposed to get their butts handed to them tonight in Charlotte, but they remained true to form - unpredictable - and surprised everyone by bashing the sloppy Carolina Panthers, 36-7.

They capitalized on five Panther turnovers and played staunch defense, shutting up all those yapping detractors who were leaving them for dead after two games.

Amazingly, they did it without WR Hakeem Nicks, OL David Diehl and RB Ahmad Bradshaw. Who woulda thunk it?

Which Panther team will show up tonight: the one that ran for 10 yards in Week One, or the team that trampled New Orleans for 219 yards last week? It's running back by committee in Carolina this year with DeAngelo Williams, ?Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert. Stewart (ankle, toe) is unlikely to see much action tonight. QB Cam Newton is capable of tucking the ball in and taking off, too, as we know.

Who will pick up the slack in the Giants' passing game with Hakeem Nicks and Domenik Hixon out? Big opportunities on the table for WRs Ramses Barden, Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan tonight. Victor Cruz will draw a lot of attention from the Panthers, but will the others be able take advantage of the single coverage?

Will Beatty will start at LT for the first time since Week 11 last year. He did play 70 of the Giants' 84 offensive plays last week, but he hasn't played a full game since last November. Could be rusty going up against Panther DE Charles Johnson.

"Well, you?d like to be able to eliminate the run game and the option game, but he?s a very accurate passer as well and when he stands in there, he obviously does a very good job and he certainly spreads the ball around, so it?s a challenge.......He?s powerful and he can run through an arm tackle, no doubt, and he?s physically strong enough to withstand the blows that come from rushing the football. Yeah. Sure. There?s different-sized athletes. This guy is big and strong and fast." - Giant head coach Tom Coughlin on Panthers' QB Cam Newton

Newton creates problems for every defense, not just the Giants. He is a 6'5", 245lb QB that can move. Last week vs the Saints, he rushed 13 times for 71 yards while completing 70% of his passes, one of which went for a 66-yard gain to speedster Steve Smith.

The Giants are coming off games against Dallas and Tampa where their defense has looked porous and disorganized. Thus far this season, they have surrendered nine plays of 20 or more yards and three over 40 yards. The secondary has been exposed because the pass rush has been neutralized. The Giants have four sacks in their first two games with only one coming from a defensive end (Jason Pierre-Paul).

The Giants-Panthers clash set for Thursday night in Charlotte began with the Giants favored by as many as 2.5 points, but injuries to key offensive players have that line slipping by the hour. The Mirage listed the line as Giants -1.5 on Monday. Since then, the line has been going the other way. The Giants are now 2 point underdogs.

From Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the Beast:

News trickled in today that both Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks would be out for tomorrow?s game in Carolina. ?I?ve watched both of Carolina?s games this season. ?In the first game, they got down early, abandoned the run, and finished with 10 rushing yards against one of the worst run defenses in the league a year ago.

Last week, they looked a lot more like the team I expected to see, as they ran for a very impressive 219 yards against New Orleans. ?I think tomorrow night?s game, unlike most NFL games, will come down to the running game.

Sometimes you have to look in the most unique places to find motivation and sometimes that motivation is right in front of your face but you're too close to see it. ? In 2007 Tom Coughlin invited Lt. Col. Gregory Gadson to meet with the team and talk to them about ?service, duty, perseverance and adversity.

Lt. Col. Gadson had lost bough his legs, above the knee when fighting in Iraq.? The former West Point football player gave such a moving and emotional speech that each and every player on the 2007 team reached deep down inside and found something.

The New York Giants hoped to quell their disconcerted fanbase following a week of defensive statements from their front office and public relations department, both of which defiantly defended the team?s rather dismal offseason.

But, in their pre-season opener on Saturday night, the Giants might have generated even more questions and even greater speculation during a dispirited 20-10 road loss to the Carolina Panthers.

The Giants fell to the Panthers by a score of 20 to 10 to drop the first pre-season game of the season.

  • This was one of the more boring pre-season games I've seen in some time. The Giants looked lifeless, and at times unprepared. I understand they haven't had much time to practice, but neither has any team.
  • Jason Pierre-Paul was easily the bright spot for the Giants, registering two sacks and looking ready to record double digit sacks this season.
  • Michael Boley accounted for the Giants' one touchdown, picking off a Jimmy Clausen pass and returning it 56 yards for the score.
  • Lawrence Tynes had a game to forget, converting on just one of four field goal attempts. He left the game with a leg injury, but walked off under his own strength.
  • The Giants' special teams coverage units cannot tackle. I feel vindicated in giving the special teams unit an F this offseason. Steve Weatherford and Matt Dodge looked fine, but the unit has a long way to go.
  • Domenik Hixon caught five passes for 86 yards. I've been reading some complaints lately about Hixon as the #3 receiver, but he's done nothing but produce when healthy. The Giants could do a lot worse.
  • The running game never got anything going, as the offensive line failed to create substantial holes. Give it some time, they'll be alright.
  • Andre Brown looked fresh, and quicker than he was two seasons ago.
  • Tyler Sash, known for being in the right place at the right time at Iowa, forced a fumble and led the team with four tackles.
  • Eli Manning was shaky, but both Sage Rosenfels and Ryan Perriloux were solid. Throw in David Carr, who didn't play, and the Giants will have some decisions to make at QB.

It's not the most crisp game we've ever seen, but hey. it's a game. We thought we might be without football this year, so we'll take it.

Highlights: none on offense. Lawrence Tynes is 1-3 on FG attempts, even though one miss was from 56 yards out. Tynes had a quad problem this week, not sure why they would ask him to try a kick that long....may we mention third down conversions were hard to come by....

On defense LB Michael Boley returned a Jimmy Clausen pass 56 yards for a TD. Rookie safety Tyler Sash led the defense with four tackles and a forced fumble. JPP has two sacks and looked virtually unblockable on most plays

I hate to say it but, this season is beginning to remind me of the 2009 season when Jerry Reese went into camp with only 3 safeties.? Kenny Philips went down with a serious knee injury which forced Mr. Reese to scramble for players.

He signed C. C. Brown and Aaron Rouse.? That was a painful season and a painful lesson to learn.? The next year(2010) Reese brought in Antrel Rolle and Deon Grant.

Tight Ends with NFL experience are always a plus for a successful season.?? The Giants are a bit thin in the tight end department with Ben Patrick(FA from Arizona) retiring and the loss of Kevin Boss.? I would guess the Giants brass are burning up the phone lines looking for someone that can block and catch.

The Giants defeated the Carolina Panthers yesterday, 31-18, in the first game ever at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

Eli Manning threw three touchdowns - all to WR Hakeem Nicks - to lead the uneven effort over a sub par opponent. He also threw three interceptions.? All three passes were either tipped or muffed by a Giants' receiver.

The Giants defense was flat in the first half, then dominant in the second.? They displayed some holes, but were clutch when it counted, intercepting Panthers' QB Matt Moore three times in the end zone to thwart scoring drives - the ultimate "bend but don't break" defense.?

From Jon Wagner, Pro Football NYC...........

The Carolina Panthers had already spoiled a couple of New York Giant parties in the Giants? old home, and for one half, they were poised to likewise ruin the first regular season game ever played in the Giants? new digs.

That?s when the Giants (1-0) decided enough was enough, before exacting some revenge on the Panthers (0-1) with a 17-2 second half, rallying for a 31-18 victory before 77,245 fans at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Sunday.

Eli Manning had a banner day. He went 20-for-30 for 263 yards and tossed 3 TDs, but threw three interceptions.? Those miscues would have normally cost his team the game, but the Panthers were just as benevolent with the football today.

Those miscues were also not his fault.? His receivers were dropping passes all day on him, and allowed several opportunities (and footballs) slip through fingers and into the arms of the Carolina defense.

Manning is never one to throw teammates under the bus. Today was no different...

The Giants defeated the Carolina Panthers today, 31-18, but it was far from a masterpiece. Tom Coughlin was happy to get the win, but he knows there is a lot his team needs to improve on....

"It's a historic first win for the New York Giants franchise here in the brand new stadium. We talked definitely about that. I thought that it is an outstanding win for our team. I thought our defense played the run very well. We gave up some yards in the pass, gave up some yards on third down, but the turnovers were huge and the ability to get the interceptions and to turn them back. Unfortunately we made turnovers on the offensive side of the ball. We didn't run the ball very well. Their defense was very good and always has been a very good defense against the run.

The Giants will hit the field again this morning at Timex.? Yesterday, they nearly had a full squad for practice for the first time in recent memory.

Everyone was on the field with the exception of LB Phillip Dillard (hamstring) and S Michael Johnson (personal). CB Aaron Ross (heel), LB Gerris Wilkinson (groin) and C Shaun O?Hara (ankle) are all still being monitored and were limited.

Tom Coughlin seemed more upbeat than usual. A healthier team, perhaps, has given him more confidence. He had positive things to day about several players, most notably the injured who are all getting closer to participating in full.
