The Panthers vs. Giants live stream online and televised 2015 NFL game coverage arrives Sunday as Carolina continues their pursuit of a perfect regular season. As of right now, they would hold the top overall seed in the NFC playoffs, but should they start to stumble, the Cardinals are still within reach. New York is still clinging to their own playoff hopes which could happen if they win their division. That’s not a longshot as they have an identical record to Philadelphia and Washington. Sunday’s 2015 NFL live streaming and televised action arrives via Fox Sports and other sources.
According to ESPN.com in their Dec. 19 game preview, the Panthers are now the ninth team in league history to have gone 13-0, but only two of those teams ended up with perfect regular seasons. They were the 1972 Miami Dolphins, and more recently a 16-0 Patriots team in 2007. That New England team was eventually stopped short of an NFL title by the New York Giants in the Super Bowl. That Giants team included quarterback Eli Manning who will once again be on the field trying to take down an unbeaten team. In addition to that, New York is at 6-7, and currently trying to stay even with Washington who has control of the NFC East.
While the Giants need a win to remain hopeful for the postseason, Carolina is looking to take care of its players in hopes of winning the Super Bowl. On Sunday, running back Jonathan Stewart will be out of action. The league’s third-best rusher with 989 yards on the season has a sprained left foot so Carolina will look to Fozzy Whittaker or Mike Tolbert as replacements. Tight end Greg Olsen will play despite a recent knee injury against Atlanta. Olsen currently ranks second among all tight ends with 969 yards. Apart from the notable injuries, fans will want to watch the key matchup between Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Panthers cornerback Josh Norman.
On Sunday, Eli Manning will have to work against a defense that has 40 sacks to top the NFC. Left tackle Ereck Flowers has been dealing with an ankle injury but seems insistent he will play. As for the Giants defense, that leaves a lot to be desired for fans, as they allow 425 yards per game which is second worst in the league. All of this adds up to a potential win for Carolina to go 14-0. Odds makers agree, as the Panthers are four point favorites on the road, or -190 on the moneyline, while New York is a +175 home underdog. The over/under points total will be 48 for the game.
