Giants take down Panthers in Week 2: Here’s how Twitter reacted

·5 min read

The New York Giants came into Week 2 feeding off the dramatic Week 1 victory against the Tennessee Titans as they started their home campaign against the Carolina Panthers.

The Giants benefitted from two takeaways on the Panthers’ first two drives but were only able to come away with six points from those takeaways, and that was all they would get the entire half.

Both teams struggled to get anything going offensively and the one big play the Giants put together was called back because of a very questionable pick play that was called back for pass interference.

In the second half, both teams got the scoring going, exchanging blows back and forth. With 3:34 left, kicker Graham Gano nailed a 56-yard field goal to give the Giants a 19-16 lead.

The defense would come up with a big stop and get the ball back for the Big Blue offense. The Giants would ice the game from there on the legs on running back Saquon Barkley and quarterback Daniel Jones.

It wasn’t a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination, but at the end of the day Jones, Barkley and the Giants’ defense made big plays when it mattered most to help New York improve to 2-0.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.
