3-3. 1-5. 87. FOX. Sunday, October 24. 31. Panthers -2.5. 1 PM ET

Things seem to be unraveling quickly for the Carolina Panthers. Their loss against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6 -a third consecutive reverse – now sees Matt Rhule’s men back at .500 and with far more questions than answers regarding just what this roster can accomplish in 2021.

One doesn’t have to look far on social media to see how much unrest there currently is within the team’s fanbase. The Panthers are shooting themselves in the foot with the same problems and – in some situations – they just don’t look suitably prepared.

There is no more margin for error. But fortunately for Carolina, they travel to the New York Giants on Sunday for a must-win game on the road against a team that’s struggled once again this season.

Completely writing off the Giants would be a mistake, even though they’ll likely be without Saquon Barkley and quarterback Daniel Jones is prone to a turnover or two at any moment, would be a mistake. Especially considering how early momentum has completely gone where Carolina is concerned.

This is a pivotal week for everyone associated with the franchise. Another loss at a New York team that’s triumphed just once this season is going to come with some substantial ramifications.

And not in a good way.

Panthers at Giants Prediction Week 7

It’s really hard to call this one at the present moment. The wound of another heartbreaking one-score defeat is still fresh and although Carolina has the talent to get a result on the road, there’s just no telling what level their confidence is at right now.

Couple this with Sam Darnold returning to the scene of the crime after three years on the New York Jets, and the stakes could not be much higher for the Panthers if they want to harbor any faint hopes of making the postseason.

The Giants are dealing with some major injury problems, which could be Carolina’s saving grace. Much will depend on the character within this group after three defeats, but we’ll take them to come away victorious by a score of 30-24.
