3 keys to the Giants escaping Charlotte with a much-needed win over the Panthers

Eli Manning has to play better, and Pat Shurmur’s offense needs to find the end zone more frequently. The Giants have scored just seven touchdowns in four games, including only three first-half TDs. They are averaging a measly 18.2 points per game (29th in the NFL), have failed to reach 20 points in all three of their losses, and have not scored 30 points in 37 straight games, including playoffs, dating back to Week 17 of the 2015 season. That is the longest such drought in the league. Odell Beckham Jr. has yet to score a touchdown and will reach a career-long drought of five games if he doesn’t score Sunday. The Panthers defense is allowing 20 points per game, with five interceptions, eight sacks and a recovered fumble in only three games. And new signing safety Eric Reid bolsters the secondary. Carolina held Dallas, which averages 16.8 points per game (30th), scoreless until the fourth quarter of a 16-8 Week 1 Panthers win.
