With game day nearing, we delve into the scouting report to break down the Giants' Week 15 opponent: the Carolina Panthers.
Here are some numbers that tell the story about the NFC-leading Panthers, including how they have fared so far in the 2015 season and the Giants' history against them…
1: Carolina has allowed only 1 opposing player to rush for more than 100 yards against them - Tampa Bay's Doug Martin back in Week 4. The Panthers have held opponents under 100 yards rushing the past six games and in nine of 13 games overall.
1: The Panthers offense ranks 1st in scoring across the NFL, averaging 31.6 points per game. They have scored 30 or more point in four consecutive games and in five of their last six contests.
4: Against Miami on Monday night, Eli Manning threw as many touchdowns as he did incompletions with 4. Manning also notched career-high marks in completion percentage (87.1%) and passer rating (151.5).
6: Odell Beckham Jr. has recorded 6 consecutive 100-yard receiving games. His next challenge comes in the form of Josh Norman, who has been one of - if not - the best cornerback in the NFL this season.
8: The Panthers defense has forced a turnover in 8 consecutive games and 12 of 13 overall. In the past eight contests, Carolina has racked up 22 turnovers. On the season, the Panthers have totaled 33 turnovers, tops in the NFL.
8: Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. has already set a career-high with 8 touchdown receptions in 2015. Ginn recorded 11 receiving touchdowns from 2007 to 2014 with Miami, San Francisco, Carolina and Arizona. His previous season-high was five touchdowns in 2013, also with the Panthers.
9: Carolina and the Giants have squared off 9 times in franchise history, and the Panthers own a 5-4 edge. Their last meeting was on Sept. 22, 2013 when Carolina blanked the Giants, 38-0. The Giants have won two of three against the Panthers since 2010.
11: Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is 11 yards shy of reaching 1,000 rushing yards for the season. Stewart is questionable heading into Sunday's game with the Giants. Stewart suffered a foot injury last week against at Atlanta and left the game after only 10 carries. Stewart has reached 1,000 rushing yards only one other season in his eight-year career - back in 2009.
14: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has scored 14 touchdowns in his past four games. That includes 13 through the air and one on the ground. Newton has matched career-highs with five passing touchdowns against Washington and New Orleans in Weeks 11 and 13. He added three more last week against Atlanta.
17: The Panthers have won 17 regular-season games in a row dating back to 2014. Carolina won its final four games to advance to the playoffs last season and, of course, have started this season with a league-best 13-0 record.
