Greenville's Andre Brown Helps Giants Rout Panthers 36-7

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Eli Manning didn't need a big comeback Thursday night, not with Andre Brown running for a career-high 113 yards and two touchdowns in the New York Giants' 36-7 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

Brown, a former Rose High School and N.C. State standout, got the start in place of Ahmad Bradshaw, who sat out with a neck injury. Ramses Barden caught nine passes for a career-high 138 yards in his first NFL start.

Manning completed 27 of 35 passes for 288 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

The defending champion Giants (2-1) were without three starters but it hardly mattered. New York dominated the first half, scoring on its first four possessions to take a 20-0 halftime lead and outgaining the Panthers 303-125.

Cam Newton struggled all night and was pressured into three interceptions. The Panthers (1-2) had five turnovers, including two by returner Joe Adams.
