Live from the Meadowlands: At the half
Derrick Ward, who was back as New York's top primary kickoff returner, took his second opportunity back 67 yards, setting up a seven-yard scoring connection between Manning and Jeremy Shockey.
Ward then capped a nice Jared Lorenzen-engineered drive with a five-yard TD run to give New York a 14-10 lead. But the Panthers responded with a late TD for a 17-14 halftime cushion.
Eli Manning finished his evening by completing three-of-five passes for 27 yards and a TD… Fullback Robert Douglas showed his versatility by forcing a fumble on special teams in opening quarter…
Will Demps, who was demoted to second-team, had a good second quarter, posting three tackles, including a 13-yard sack of David Carr…
The following Giants didn't play in the preseason opener: WRs Amani Toomer and Plaxico Burress; CBs Aaron Ross, E.J. Underwood and Travonti Johnson; DT Fred Robbins, LB Gerris Wilkinson, S Michael Stone, LS Ryan Kuehl and G Todd Londot.
