Jimmy Clausen’s second preseason got off to a great start, with a 31-yard strike over the middle to Brandon LaFell on his first throw.

The next pass didn’t go so well.

Under pressure by Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck, Clausen rushed a throw right into the waiting arms of Giants linebacker Michael Boley who returned it 56 yards for a touchdown.

On the next series, Clausen had happy feet before one incompletion and then Pierre-Paul sacked him on third down.

The home crowd in Carolina is probably ready for Cam Newton to enter the game. And stay there for a few years.

UPDATE: Yep, they are chanting for Newton.

UPDATE II: The third drive went better. After some nice running by DeAngelo Williams, Clausen found Greg Olsen for an 18-yard score.
