Giants Vs. Panthers Score Update: New York Looks Sharp, Leads Carolina 20-0 At Half

The New York Giants are stifling Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers offensively as the defending champions lead 20-0 at halftime in Charlotte on Thursday night.

Quarterback Eli Manning has been sharp, hitting on 19-of-25 passes for 208 yards and one touchdown. He connected with tight end Martellus Bennett for a 14-yard scoring strike in the first quarter to put the Giants up, 7-0. Placekicker Lawrence Tynes has tacked on field goals of 47-and 49-yards for the Giants as New York didn't have a problem methodically reaching Panther territory for much of the half, racking up 303 total offensive yards.

Running back Andre Brown, starting in place of the injured Ahmad Bradshaw, punched in New York's second touchdown of the half from just outside the goal line early in the second quarter to increase their lead to 17-0. Brown has rushed for 96 yards on 13 carries in the first half.

Newton went 5-for-12 passing for 90 yards and an interception through two quarters, as Carolina as only totaled 122 yards of offense.
