The once-promising start of the Carolina Panthers and new quarterback Sam Darnold has gone further south than … well … Carolina. The New York Giants sunk to the depths of the NFL right off the bat and have remained there.

The Giants are an NFC East-worst 1-5 and have lost two in a row. Carolina is treading water at 3-3 following a 3-0 start. Still, it’s the Panthers who will take the field Sunday at MetLife Stadium as the 3-point road favorite. How does that impact our NFL picks?

Take a look at Panthers vs Giants odds, injury report, betting lines and more.

Panthers vs Giants Key Matchups

Chuba Hubbard vs Giants Run Defense: Carolina is 0-3 since losing All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey to a hamstring injury. The Panthers have gone away from the run minus McCaffrey, but head coach Matt Rhule vows to rectify that this week. That should mean plenty of work for rookie Hubbard. He went for 61 yards and a TD on 16 carries last week.

Who Wins The Turnover Battle? Or should that be who doesn’t win the turnover battle? The Panthers have turned the ball over eight times during their three-game losing. The Giants committed six turnovers in the past two weeks.

Darnold vs New York: Darnold has already beaten the New York Jets, his old team, in Week 1. Now he gets the chance to complete the New York double back at the stadium he once called home. Darnold is 8-13 at MetLife Stadium but 1-0 there against the Giants.
