On The Game: Game 3
Gamegirl ---"
I can't believe the Giants played such a sloppy game today. There were so many penalties and then opportunities to win this one including a last minute comeback, but Manning couldn't pull it off this time."
Mikefan. ---"
The Giants defense played well in the first two games, but they didn't hold up today. Washington hit them for some big plays."

Giants (2-0) vs Redskins (0-2) Game Preview
Last week in the fourth quarter, the Redskins were up by 3 points. They hoped to extend their lead down at the Cowboys 6 yard line, but Kirk Cousins threw an interception in the end zone. Later Alfred Morris, their former running back, scored the go-ahead touchdown to give his new Cowboys team a 27-23 win.
The Giants were playing in their home opener after coming off a close win in Dallas. Their defense limited the Saints to just 13 points. With the special teams unit scoring a touchdown to add to their three field goals, the Giants fans went home happy with a 16-13 win.
Giants - Saints Wrap-Up

Sept 25 Odell Beckham Jr. meets Josh Norman again -- and it's up to Ben McAdoo to manage the mayhem. It's here - the undefeated Giants (2-0) and winless Washington (0-2) in an early, must-see NFC East clash, with Washington so desperate that Giants coach Ben McAdoo on Friday compared them to "hungry animals."
Nine months later, Beckham and the Giants firmly believe he has matured and moved on and there will be no second act with Norman, who signed a five-year, $75 million deal with the Redskins. The officials will be watching, and, no doubt, throwing flags at the slightest hint of mischief.
Giants unconcerned if Josh Norman shadows Odell Beckham Jr. In fact, they may be reveling in it because they are one of the few teams that can afford to lose some production from their best receiver and still have two others who can win them a game.

Sept 24 The Giants will officially be without two starters for Sunday's contest against Washington. And they could be missing a third. Starting right tackle Marshall Newhouse (calf) and starting rookie free safety Darian Thompson (sprained foot) have been ruled out for Week 3.
All week, Rashad Jennings has been confident his injured left thumb wouldn't prevent him from facing the Redskins, but the Giants are listing their starting running back as questionable to play Sunday. Jennings was limited in practice this week, wearing a large wrap on his left hand.

Keenan Robinson getting Giants fired up to face his former team. Earlier this week, Robinson was stirring the pot ahead of the Giants' clash with Washington. Amid reports of fractures in the Washington locker room, Robinson offered insights from his own experience.

The Giants are one of just three NFL teams without a takeaway in the first two games (Seattle and Tampa Bay), but the only one to have won their first two games.

Sept 23 Rashad Jennings reiterated he will stand for the national anthem prior to Sunday's game between the Giants and Redskins, and he expects his teammates to do the same.
Giants players are still debating how to best convey their condemnation of racial injustice in this country. But they almost certainly won't be protesting in any manner during the national anthem Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

The relatively healthy New York Giants have perhaps their first significant injury on defense to deal with all of a sudden thanks to the foot sprain suffered by rookie starting safety Darian Thompson.
Devon Kennard was expected to be an important piece of the Giants defense this season. But through two games, the linebacker has played just 37 defensive snaps and recorded five tackles.

The Giants are one of just three NFL teams without a single takeaway in the first two games, sharing that blank slate with the Seahawks and Buccaneers. Adding in the four turnovers on offense, the Giants are minus-four in turnover ratio, 31st out of 32 teams.

Everyone who is talking about Josh Norman this week is talking about the wrong defense when it comes to Sunday's Washington-Giants slugfest at MetLife Stadium.
Norman is the story and the story-teller. And he's yapping exclusively on Fox's lead-in to its 1 p.m. Washington-Giants telecast. Needless to say Fox's pregame competition won't be able to provide such an intimate assessment of Norman vs OBJ.
Rookie Sterling Shepard focusing on himself, not others. All the questions from the media about the subject, not to mention the questions the players undoubtedly have for themselves.

Sept 22 A week after the Giants players criticized Redskins cornerback Josh Norman for not covering Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown, Norman reportedly will shadow Odell Beckham Jr. in Sunday's matchup. Norman will cover Beckham all over the field, except the slot.
Josh Norman wouldn't say if the plan is for him to shadow Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday. But Norman wants to. Badly. "Heck yeah, why not?" the cornerback said with a smile Wednesday. "Shoot, man, that's the competitor that's inside of me, man. I don't shy away from nobody."

Giants unconcerned if Josh Norman shadows Odell Beckham Jr. In fact, they may be reveling in it because they are one of the few teams that can afford to lose some production from their best receiver and still have two others who can win them a game.
Of all the advice Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has received in the months since his on-field confrontation with cornerback Josh Norman, there is one message that continues to resonate in advance of their gridiron rematch. "Don't lose it, kid."

DeAngelo Hall is just happy to hear Keenan Robinson has a job. Or something like that A day after Robinson, a Giants linebacker who spent the last four years in Washington, called out the Redskins and their perennially dysfunctional locker room, his old teammate had a hard-to-believe, and hilarious, retort.

Sept 20 Here we go again. The Giants are 2-0 and have a golden opportunity Sunday to further distance themselves from the Redskins, last year's NFC East champions, who are 0-2 with two losses on their home field.
Plenty of attention will be paid to Sunday's Odell Beckham Jr. versus Josh Norman matchup, with the Giants receiver and Washington cornerback facing one another for the first time since last December's throwdown at MetLife Stadium.
Beckham didn't want to address his inexcusable final-drive drop after Sunday's 16-13 win over New Orleans. Football may be a team sport, and the third-year receiver did his part with eight catches for 86 yards. Giants WR Beckham has advantage vs. Saints' inexperienced corners But the Giants' defense isn't going to win all of these games.

The Giants have allowed only three plays of 20 or more yards, all on passes. They are the only NFL team that has yet to allow a play of any kind for 30 or more yards. This new group has been almost flawless in its technique and tackling.
Rashad Jennings "banged his hand up a little bit" in the second half against New Orleans, but he should work when the Giants resume practice Wednesday. McAdoo did say he expects Jennings to be limited in some capacity, however.

On The Game: Game 2
Gamegirl ---"
I didn't know what to expect when I saw the Giants take the field for their first home game. They were coming off a close win over the Cowboys, but with the Saints and Drew Brees coming in, the competition would be tougher today."
Mikefan. ---"
If this was a Super Bowl game some longshot bets would have paid off. Special teams scored the first touchdown. No running back on either team scored a touchdown. Drew Brees threw only one touchdown. Eli Manning threw none, and so all his receivers caught none. That includes Beckham who had eight catches for 130 yards and three touchdowns last time against the Saints."

Giants (1-0) vs Saints (0-1) Game Preview
Last week In the third quarter, the Raiders were down by 14 points. Later, closing the gap to five, they went for a two point conversion that failed. So the Raiders were down by eight when the Saints added a field goal. After scoring a touchdown, the Raiders two point attempt worked to tie the score. The Saints scored another touchdown to go up by seven, and then the Raiders scored one of their own. Sticking by their guns (swords?) they went for two and won the game by one point, 35-34.
The Giants were playing in Dallas and they won their opener for the first time since 2010. With Tony Romo out, the Cowboys started rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. He and his offense showed good ball control throughout the game scoring one touchdown and four field goals. The Giants offense came up with three touchdowns and had one missed point after attempt. That was enough to give new head coach Ben McAdoo his first win, 20-19.

Sept 18 Giants must start paying fans back after years of heartbreak. If coach Ben McAdoo is right, Giants fans won't recognize the team that comes storming out of the tunnel into their Big Blue hearts for the first time in 2016. A team that owes them 2-0.

The Saints are marching in to MetLife Stadium on Sunday, but the Giants are swaggering into their Week 2 home opener and it's not just because of their 1-0 record after a 20-19 Week 1 win in Dallas. It's because they got their swagger back before they even beat the Cowboys.

For this game - and another two after it at least - Drew Brees is the acting dean of NFL starting quarterbacks. Nobody in the league has had more starts than him (217) except Tom Brady (223), who is serving a four-game suspension..

Who helps Giants most with a Week 2 win - Cowboys or Redskins? The Giants will be focused on their home opener against the Saints on Sunday, but two of their NFC East rivals will be meeting at the same time - and both need a win badly.

Sept 17 Janoris Jenkins likes to go by his nickname: Jackrabbit. He got it when he was a child in Florida and would spend his time and demonstrate his athleticism by chasing rabbits. After one game with the Giants, though, he might be ready for a new moniker: Shutdown corner.

The Giants might have to face the NFL's leading passer without one of their leading pass rushers. Though Jason Pierre-Paul vowed to play Sunday when the Giants face Drew Brees and the Saints at MetLife Stadium, coach Ben McAdoo isn't sounding as confident.

Drew Brees certainly didn't look 37 years old last week while strafing the Raiders with yet another of his trademark 400-yard passing days. Giants safety Landon Collins and his defensive teammates know they could be in for a similar roasting Sunday at MetLife Stadium if Big Blue can't find a way to get Brees out of rhythm.

Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz were both fined over $12,000 each for a group celebration in the Giants' 20-19 season-opening victory, a league source confirmed to NJ Advance Media. Beckham pantomimed taking a photo of Cruz as he did the (salsa) dance after a touchdown, which is where the group celebration apparently comes into play.

Ben McAdoo and the Giants' players so frequently have uttered the phrase "stay humble" this week that you wonder if they'd just prefer to hand their 20-19 Week 1 win in Dallas back to the Cowboys, so as not to offend anyone or grow too enamored with a 1-0 start.

Sept 16 As a collective unit, the Giants' offensive line swats away criticism like it was a fly that had lost its way and invaded their territory. As individuals, they're a bit more sensitive about being told they aren't capable of doing something well.
When it comes to assessing Giants tight end Larry Donnell, it can be complicated. Donnell has been an asset in the passing game, but struggled with ball security and blocking.

Will Tye could have used a sick day against Cowboys. His illness altered the Giants' game plan a bit. They planned to use a bit more two tight-end looks with Tye and Larry Donnell, but because of Tye's limitations they went with three receivers for most of the game.

Eli Apple faces stiffer test this week in Saints QB Drew Brees. Rookie cornerback had some rough spots in debut vs. Dallas, feels confident he can cope with Brees' skill, experience This won't just be a different opponent for Eli Apple. At times it might feel like a different sport..

It was a game that had everything, as long as you do not include defense in your definition of everything. There were 101 points, 1,030 total yards, 840 passing yards, 64 first downs and an NFL record 13 touchdown passes.
All week, the Giants have relived the misery inflicted by the Saints last season, recounting the embarrassment of allowing 52 points. The defense watched the highlights it remembered too well, ashamed that 49 points from the offense wasn't enough. For Jason Pierre-Paul, it is easy to believe Sunday's game won't play out the same.
Jason Pierre-Paul sat out Thursday's practice but expects to play Sunday. Pierre-Paul is the only one on the team's injury report this week with a football-related issue. The only other is DT Robert Thomas who is dealing with an illness.

Darian Thompson appears to have earned the starting free safety job - again. The Giants rookie won the starting spot in training camp but suffered a shoulder injury in the preseason, which enabled Nat Berhe to receive the season-opening start at Dallas.

Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock, who is on injured reserve with a foot injury, has been suspended without pay for the team's next 10 games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Sept 15 Why Giants can dream of breaking Sunday's scoreboard. Odell Beckham Jr. sees what everyone else sees when he takes a look at the Giants receivers and their impending matchup with the Saints' cornerbacks.
The Giants have a history of playing high-scoring games against the New Orleans Saints. From 2003-15, the teams met seven times, and the winner never scored less than 27 points. Five times, the victors put at least 45 points on the board.

The winning team in the last four games between the Giants and the Saints has scored at least 48 points, marking the first time in NFL history two opponents have had such high-output victories against each other. The losing team in those four games has averaged over 31 points per game.
If Odell Beckham Jr. gets stopped on Sunday, it will be by someone you have never heard of. To call the Saints' cornerbacks young and inexperienced is an understatement. With top cornerback Delvin Breaux out injured, New Orleans' top three CBs are P.J. Williams, Ken Crawley and De'Vante Harris. All three made their NFL debuts on Sunday in the Saints' one-point loss to the Raiders.

Football fans and bus riders could be in for a rough ride this weekend when lanes are closed on Route 495 east for emergency bridge repairs. Those repairs, scheduled from 10 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Monday, will affect football traffic from the Giants game at MetLife Stadium on Sunday and NJ Transit buses traveling to the Port Authority Bus terminal in New York all weekend.

Sept 14 The Giants no longer have two kickers on their active roster. Defensive tackle Montori Hughes, who was waived by the team prior to the start of the regular season, re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday. To make room for Hughes, the Giants released kicker Randy Bullock.

Eli Manning says Tom Coughlin texted him congrats after beating Cowboys. Eli Manning played his first regular season game with the Giants on Sunday without Tom Coughlin as his head coach.
The quarterback said there wasn't any sense of weirdness or absence playing his first game without having Coughlin to lean on. "I kind of used the things that I've learned from him over the years so I think in that sense he's always kind of a part of iit."
Though Eli and his recently retired brother used to regularly share information on opponents, the Giants quarterback said Peyton simply was there as a fan on Sunday. "He's just there to support."

The first touchdown of the season for the Giants showed exactly what they are capable of. They went 74 yards on three straight passes to Sterling Shepard, Odell Beckham Jr. and Larry Donnell - bang, bang, bang - taking only 58 seconds to reach the end zone. More than a third of their passing yards in the game came on those three snaps.

The Giants trailed at the end of the third quarter, 16-13. When they rallied to win, it broke a streak of 11 consecutive losses in games in which they were behind entering the fourth quarter. Dak Prescott was the 83rd starting quarterback Eli Manning has faced.

Giants offense scary good with healthy Victor Cruz, but can they keep up with Drew Brees and Saints? If the Giants can count on last Sunday's version of Cruz this season, the potential for their offense is obviously off the charts.
Here's a look at the five questions facing the Giants following their 20-19 victory over the Cowboys and heading into Sunday's home opener against the Saints.

Sept 13 The Giants' crowded linebacker corps thinned a bit Monday when the team placed veteran J.T. Thomas on injured reserve.
Kicker Josh Brown is being reinstated to the 53-man roster following his one-week suspension for a domestic violence arrest in May 2015, so Brown fills Thomas' roster spot immediately.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo had no intention of easing receiver Victor Cruz back into the lineup after a nearly two-year layoff. McAdoo was true to his word, playing Cruz for 50 of 56 offensive snaps in Sunday's season-opening 20-19 win over the Cowboys.

Upon Further Review: Secondary stands out in win. one and eight - the total number of catches and receiving yards by Dez Bryant, the Cowboys' two-time Pro Bowl wideout, who averaged 4.9 receptions and 69.3 yards in his first 84 career games.

After a one yard run by Rashad Jennings, Eli Manning wasted no time completing three straight pass plays to rookie Sterling Shepard, Odell Beckham Jr., and Larry Donnell for a touchdown to take a 7-6 lead. They Cowboys got it back with yet another field goal, but then Sterling Shepard showed his skills with a nine yard touchdown catch."
Mikefan. ---"
The rookie was doing well until Cowboys Brandon Carr (no interceptions since 2013) was able to bedazzle Shepard and grab an easy interception off Eli Manning. Like we had said in our preview, Shepard is a talented player, but you have to expect rookie mistakes."

Giants (0-0) vs Cowboys (0-0) Game Preview
Last year the Cowboys finished last in the NFC East with a 4-12 record. They sunk badly after a 12-4 first place finish the year earlier. The Giants finished third in the division for the third consecutive year, repeating their prior years 6-10 win-loss record. The Cowboys had won the season opener with the Giants and the Giants took the second game.
I have to think back to when Eli Manning was a rookie and he had the benefit of watching and learning while Kurt Warner ran the show for nine games before making his first start. Manning went on to lose the next six games before notching his first win in the very last game of the season. (It was against the Cowboys by the way.)
With that thought I feel the Cowboys are asking a lot from fourth-round rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. It's one of the reasons they recently picked up Mark Sanchez, who knows what it feels like to run a team at full NFL game speed. They'll be depending on a strong running game to help Prescott out, but once again running back Ezekiel Elliott is a rookie playing in his first NFL game against a Giants defense that looks to be well improved over last year.

Sept 11 How Michael Strahan, Kevin Mawae talked sense to NFL after 9/11. It was Strahan and Mawae who talked to their teammates, then talked to players across the league who had seen the horrors unfold on TV but were geographically detached from what that truly meant.

Two New Jersey and New York police unions have pledged to pay the fine of Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson if he wears custom cleats designed to honor victims of the 9/11 attacks during a game Sunday.

Sept 10 Victor Cruz went up for Eli Manning's pass in the back of the end zone and it's taken him nearly two years to land back on his feet. In fact, when Cruz runs out of the tunnel at Jerry World on Sunday afternoon for the Giants season opener against the Cowboys, he will need more than a calendar to track the last time he played.

The Giants announced that quarterback Eli Manning, linebacker Jonathan Casillas and long snapper Zak DeOssie were voted as the team's captains for the season. First-year head coach Ben McAdoo will also name three additional game captains each week.
Predictably, Eli Manning was voted by his teammates as offensive captain for the 10th straight season. Not surprisingly, the Giants' second-longest-tenured player, Zak DeOssie, was chosen to be the special teams captain for the sixth consecutive year. Linebacker Jonathan Casillas wasn't the obvious choice to be named the third full-season captain in just his second season with the Giants.

Jay Bromley could see the smoke from his classroom that clear Tuesday morning 15 years ago. Sunday's season opener against the Cowboys, played on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, will be a day of remembrance for all the Giants. But Bromley, the Giants' third-year defensive tackle, is the only player on either squad's current active roster who hails from New York City. A Flushing native, Bromley was 9-years-old and in class at PS 50 in Jamaica when the World Trade Center was attacked.

NFL News
The NFL season kicks off en masse Sunday on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, and the playing and observance of the national anthem - once considered a symbol of national unity - will be in the spotlight as America wonders if additional players will choose to kneel, instead of stand, to protest racial divisiveness.

Sept 9 Eli Manning knows how a bad preseason can still lead to a Super Bowl. "He has been around a long time, and I can't emphasize enough to you or anybody what a great pro he is," Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said he isn't worried about his starting quarterback heading into the season opener against the Cowboys Sunday.
Zero. It's the number of points Eli Manning was able to score this preseason, but it's also the number of concerns offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan has regarding his starting quarterback's readiness. "Eli Manning is the least of our worries at this point," he said.

Victor Cruz could stay healthy, have a great season for the Giants and still not win the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year award. Why? Because Jason Pierre-Paul is a man on a mission, that's why.

Can Odell Beckham Jr. keep it up? Can the Giants' sensational wide receiver continue his relentless go pattern through the team's and the NFL's record books? Can he make his third professional season as productive and memorable as his first two?.

Sept 8 Victor Cruz hasn't played in a regular-season game since October 2014 due to knee and calf injuries, but he appears to be back and ready to contribute. Unlike when he left off, he won't be the team's No. 1 receiver.
Randy Bullock will be the Giants' Week 1 kicker in Dallas, with Josh Brown suspended one game. That means Bullock, 26, will be guaranteed his $760,000 salary, since he is a vested veteran with four credited NFL seasons, even though it's likely he won't be on the roster when Brown returns in Week 2. So he's an expensive Week 1 fill-in.
Rookie Darian Thompson practiced Wednesday on a limited basis, and the Giants hope he can play a role Sunday in the season opener.
To say this year already has been a wild ride for Dak Prescott would be an understatement. listening to Prescott tell it, the whole crazy journey that will culminate Sunday when he leads the Cowboys against the Giants in the season opener at AT&T Stadium was meant to be all along.

The Giants' season-opening game has presented Ben McAdoo with a situation he might not experience again this season. Dallas will attack the Giants with rookies at quarterback (Dak Prescott) and running back (Ezekiel Elliott), a premier receiver in Dez Bryant, and Jason Witten, who McAdoo said, "is one of the finest to ever play the tight end position."

Eli Manning was asked what sticks out from the Giants' 27-26 season-opening loss to the Cowboys last season. The Giants were on the verge of scoring a touchdown that likely would have put the game away, but Manning told Rashad Jennings not to score for fear that the Cowboys would've had too much time on the clock to answer back.

Sept 7 Special Report - Slowly, and at times not so slowly, the Giants have become Ben McAdoo's team, as he wrests it away from the shadow of former head coach Tom Coughlin. It's a long process. Most of the players McAdoo has picked as starters for Sunday's season-opener in Dallas were Coughlin's players. But there are a few significant exceptions.
--- For instance, middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley, who joined the team just four days prior to the start of the 2015 season and played in 15 games - starting the final nine - has been waived. In his place is a free agent signee, Kelvin Sheppard - who is scheduled to start Sunday.
--- All six draft picks earned a spot on the final 53-man roster, while Coughlin, as is well-known, didn't really like (or trust) rookies. The six are cornerback Eli Apple, wide receiver Sterling Shepard, linebacker B.J. Goodson, tight end Jerell Adams, running back Paul Perkins and free safety Darian Thompson.

Sept 6 Giants have run out of excuses: It's Super Bowl or bust. Four years. Four long years without a playoff appearance. A defensive coordinator fired. Tom Coughlin gone. Enough is enough. No excuses. It's time. It's time to be Giants again.

The Giants signed Josh Johnson on Monday, and the veteran is here to push Ryan Nassib, who struggled as Eli Manning's understudy this preseason, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.
Johnson, who was cut by the Ravens this past weekend, has played in 29 games with five starts in his career. He has not thrown a pass in a regular season game since 2011. Johnson did have a good preseason, though, in Baltimore..
Kelvin Sheppard, who signed with the Giants in April to little fanfare on a one-year, veteran minimum deal, has won out as the team's middle linebacker. That became clear Monday as last year's starter, Jasper Brinkley, was released to make room for new quarterback Josh Johnson.

The preseason has rarely meant so much to an established player. For Victor Cruz, any snaps were significant after most of his past two years were spent on sidelines or outside stadiums.
There were some who didn't think he'd make it, that his career was over. But this is Victor Cruz we're talking about, a receiver who bucked the odds once before as an undrafted free agent out of UMass and who is about to buck the odds yet again.

Ben McAdoo said the Giants will "never stop looking" for new players, but when it comes to his offensive line it sounds as if he's more likely to stand pat than add anyone else.
Eli Manning has the longest active streak of consecutive games in the league, having started 194 games in a row, including the playoffs and two Super Bowl victories during which he was named MVP.
