There are those wonderful moments when everything clicks the timing is just right.

You’re frantically rushing to make the train and see it pull gently into the station. The left and center lanes of the bridge get closed for construction a sight you see from the vantage point of your rear-view mirror as you speed on by. Waiting to get served stomach growling you’re soothed by the most delectable assurance of all: There’s a fresh pie coming out of the pizza oven.

And so it is with the downtrodden woebegone Giants the 0-2 Giants the sky-is-falling back-up-the-truck Giants. With their season at an early tipping point with all the historical (and hysterical?) ominous data hovering over them like flights circling over LaGuardia the Giants receive the blessing of an all-expenses paid trip to Charlotte N.C. where on Sunday there’s a 40 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms and a 100 percent chance the lousy Panthers will be waiting. These are rare moments when the stars are aligned so perfectly when what is needed is what is granted.

Now the Giants will not subscribe to this publicly and in their current state they should be lathered up for anyone anywhere because the longer it is delayed that first victory of any season is the hardest one to get. Sure the Panthers at 0-2 are as winless as the Giants but they’ve been closer blowing fourth-quarter leads to the mighty Seahawks and last week to the Bills in Buffalo. Sure Cam Newton is one of the new-age physical marvels at quarterback DeAngelo Williams remains a powerful runner and linebacker Luke Kuechly is a second-year sensation.

The Panthers even have a hint of Giants in them with former Big Blue exec Dave Gettleman in his first year as general manager and receiver Domenik Hixon and linebacker Chase Blackburn on the roster. Hixon and Blackburn hardly play though and Gettleman very likely is going to have to sort through the should-he-stay or should-he-go debate regarding head coach Ron Rivera who in two-plus years is 13-21 — plus a dreadful 2-14 in games decided by a touchdown or less.

A recent Charlotte Observer online poll revealed 83 percent of Panthers fans want Rivera fired immediately and with a poor showing against the Giants there’s some media speculation a move could come when the Panthers are in their Week 4 bye.

There’s also the matter of the decimation in Carolina’s defensive backfield with starting free safety Charles Godfrey (Achilles) gone for the season cornerbacks Josh Thomas (concussion) and John Norman (knee) and strong safety Quintin Mikell (ankle) all banged around last week in Buffalo. It is very likely Eli Manning will be throwing to Victor Cruz Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle against the NFL’s most vulnerable secondary. Newton has been sacked seven times and all signs point to this being the week the dormant Giants pass rush awakens.

That the Giants are not favored in this game (1 1/2-point underdogs) is somewhat understandable but more so astounding and this drop-down in strength of opponent figures to enliven the entire operation.
