CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, and the Panthers sacked Eli Manning seven times en route to a 38-0 victory over the New York Giants.
The Panthers posted the most lopsided victory in franchise history, helping to propel them into the bye week.
Carolina’s previous best rout was a 34-0 win over Kansas City in 2008.
Defensive end Greg Hardy tied a career-high with three sacks in the first half.
Manning was under pressure all day and finished 12 of 23 for 119 yards with two interceptions.
The Panthers improved to 1-2 on the season.
