Panthers Vs. Giants Score: Cam Newton Makes Debut In Carolina Win, 20-10

Cam Newton made his NFL debut, taking the majority of the snaps for the Carolina Panthers in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants. Newton relieved Jimmy Clausen, who was 4-7 for 69 yards, a touchdown and an interception, in the second quarter, completing his first pass on his first snap. While he wasn't perfect, the former Auburn quarterback did show positive signs, though his mechanics still need work.

Newton finished the game 8-19 for 134 yards, but did not throw a touchdown. However, he didn't throw an interception, either, and led the Panthers to two scoring drives, both of which ended in field goals. Kealoha Pilares caught a 34-yard touchdown from Derek Anderson, who was 3-4 on the day, to seal the game in the fourth. Greg Olsen caught the Panthers' first touchdown of the game to knot the score at seven.

The Giants only touchdown of the game came courtesy of Jimmy Clausen. Early in the first, Clausen was picked-off by Michael Boley, resulting in an interception return for a touchdown. Lawrence Tynes added a 38-yard field goal in the third quarter, as well.
