Manning, Brown help Giants rout Panthers 36-7
The Panthers didn’t get on the board until midway through the third quarter when Newton leaped over the pile from a yard out.
Newton said it wasn’t what the Giants did but what the Panthers didn’t do.
‘‘Who wants to supports something that puts on a performance of embarrassment out there, and that’s what that was,’’ Newton said. ‘‘If I was a fan of the Carolina Panthers I would be holding my head down in shame at the product that was out there.’’
Newton said the Panthers problem was execution, not anything the Giants did to stop them.
‘‘We have to fix it,’’ Newton said.

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart missed his second game of the season because of a toe injury. The Panthers also were without tackle Byron Bell. ...
