Victor Cruz, New York Giants (October 12, 2014)

In a critically important game for both teams, the New York Giants were embarrassed 27-0 by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field. The Giants fell to 3-3 (1-1 in the NFC East) behind the now 5-1 Eagles and 5-1 Dallas Cowboys. The Giants face the Cowboys next Sunday in a game that may determine the fate of their season.

Worse than losing the game, the Giants lost WR Victor Cruz for the season with a torn patella tendon in his right knee. The injury was so severe that Cruz was forced to stay in a hospital in Philadelphia overnight.

“Oh, it’s (an) incredible (loss),” Head Coach Tom Coughlin said of Cruz. “Huge loss.”

“It was tough to say anything,” QB Eli Manning said. “I just went over and patted him on his shoulder. Even if I did say anything, I don’t think he would’ve heard me, he was in so much pain.”

“That’s extremely tough,” S Antrel Rolle said. “He’s just down there screaming. That’s your brother down there on the floor.”

In addition, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie left the game in the second quarter with a back injury and did not return. CB Trumaine McBride also left the game with injured thumb that required a cast.

As for the game, it was a failure across the board for New York on offense, defense, and special teams.

“In this league, you can’t take days off. You can’t take them off,” Rolle said. “We took (Sunday) off. Everyone took the day off.”

“It starts right here at the top,” Coughlin said. “Very, very poor performance. I take full responsibility for it. And there’s not a lot to say about it. Not a lot to say.”

Offensively, the Giants were shutout, held to 12 first downs, and 253 total net yards (168 yards passing and 85 yards rushing)

The Giants offensive line gave up eight sacks and could not open up holes for the running game. Heading into the game, the Eagles secondary was ranked 29th against the pass, but Eagles’ defensive backs were able to successfully press the Giants’ wide receivers at the line, and forced Manning to hold onto the ball longer than usual.

“It was great coverage,” Eagles’ Defensive Coordinator Billy Davis Jr. said. “We pressed up on guys and we were disguising some coverages, you know with a guy like Eli you have to show him one thing and give him another and just moved it around on him a little bit.”

“That’s the thing,” Eagles’ LB Trent Cole said . “Him holding onto the ball, that surprised me. Eli, he’s a guy that just gets it out quick, gets it to his receivers and he’s very accurate. I’ve always given it to him, I think he’s a great quarterback and I still think he’s a great quarterback. But, hats off to our secondary, man. I’m just very happy about how the were playing and making him hold onto the ball.”

Other Eagles said the Giants’ offense was easy to predict and defend.

“We knew if we gave (Eli Manning) a certain look, he would check to certain things,” said LB Brandon Graham. “We knew (what) was checking at the line…Everything (we thought) was going to happen, happened in the game.”

“I wasn’t surprised,” LB DeMeco Ryans said. “They did the things they showed on film.”

Defensively, the Giants allowed the Eagles to score 10 points on their first two drives as New York quickly found themselves in a 10-0 hole. The Eagles added another 10 points in the second quarter as the game was practically over by halftime.  Philadelphia gained 448 yards of offense, including 203 yards rushing.

Special teams were not better with the Giants giving up a 43-yard punt return and having a punt partially blocked.

The Giants were also penalized 10 times for 74 yards.

The Giants had talked a lot of trash leading up to this game, but in the end, the Eagles had the final word.

“I said when (the Giants) were talking all week that we would see what happened on Sunday,” LB Trent Cole said. “Well, we saw what happened Sunday.”

Notes:  Inactive for the Giants were RB Rashad Jennings (knee), LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring), OG Adam Snyder, OGBrandon Mosley, OT James Brewer, DT Jay Bromley, and DE Kerry Wynn.

October 8, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: RB Rashad Jennings (knee) and LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.

“There’s progress,” Jennings said. “The strength is coming back quickly, the healing is coming rather quickly. I’ve just got to continue to stay the course.”

Contrary to the Giants’ official injury report, Rodgers-Cromartie says his knee has been the issue. “I was getting my knee looked at,” said DRC. “My main problem was my knee. This whole right side, but I’m good.”

October 6, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: RB Rashad Jennings sprained the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his left knee in the game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Jennings will not need surgery but he was wearing a knee brace when talking to the press on Monday. It is not clear how much time he will miss.

Rashad Jennings, New York Giants (August 9, 2014)

“I am going to go day-to-day,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin of Jennings. “I’m not going to change off of that until I am told differently…We are all hoping that this young man is a fast healer with the way he conditions and takes care of himself. We’ll see.”

Meanwhile, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie underwent a medical exam on Monday to check out a hip/leg issue.

“The word has come back to me that he thinks he can play with it,” said Coughlin. “It is a leg injury, but pinpointing it is not something that I am going to try to do. It starts with an ankle, but I noticed that he has had some issue way up high in the hip area also from time to time. I am just going to stick with the leg right now. We felt that he could work through it on a couple of occasions, but I think (Senior Vice President of Medical Services) Ronnie (Barnes) wanted to shut it down and take a look at whatever was going on there. Hopefully, we can overcome it. He thinks he can play through it as he rehabs and feels better about it…I don’t think this is anything new or different. I think it is an ongoing thing.”

LB Spencer Paysinger suffered a hamstring injury in the game and underwent further testing today. No word yet on his status.  “The severity, I don’t know, we will see,” Coughlin said. “We have a couple of those things at the linebacker level that seem to be forever but shouldn’t be. Hopefully that is not the case with Spencer Paysinger.”

LB Jon Beason (foot/toe) was held out of his third consecutive game on Sunday. “The injury obviously and the projection between the medical people and Jon himself as to how far he could go into the game and where he would be if he were to put another solid week in front of him without any kind of setbacks,” said Coughlin.

RB Michael Cox and CB Jayron Hosley Added to 53-Man Roster: The New York Giants signed RB Michael Cox to the 53-man roster from the Practice Squad on Monday. CB Jayron Hosley was also officially added to the roster after his 1-game roster exemption expired following his 4-game NFL suspension for violating the league’s policy on illegal drugs.

To make room for Cox and Hosley, the Giants waived WR Julian Talley and CB Chandler Fenner.

The Giants also waived WR/returner Trindon Holliday (hamstring) off of Injured Reserve with an injury settlement.

Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, Roster, and Depth Chart sections of the website.

Odell Beckham, New York Giants (October 5, 2014)

Odell Beckham – © USA TODAY Sports Images

The play had never been run. Not in a practice, and most certainly not in a game.

Eli Manning lined up in the shotgun formation with two wide receivers to his left, and one to his right. He took the snap and a couple steps back before hitting his back foot. A perfect pocket formed around him.

Manning then looked left and lobbed a pass into the end zone and in the direction of Odell Beckham Jr.

The rookie jumped up, came down, and instantly erased any and all criticism thrown his way. The score put New York on top for good in a 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons yesterday in East Rutherford.

“Words can’t even describe it,” Beckham said. “To be out this long and to have to deal with the adversity I’ve had, I just want to thank God for giving me the opportunity to play and allowing me to score in my first game.”

While Beckham was expected to be kept on a tight snap count, the Giants unleashed the No. 12 overall pick in this year’s draft in front of a rowdy crowd at MetLife Stadium. Of the 64 plays run by the Giants, Beckham was on the field for 37 of them, catching four passes for 44 yards and the score.

Early in the game, it appeared as if the Giants were gearing up for an ugly beginning to the month of October. After jumping on top, 7-0, the Giants watched as Atlanta scored 20 of the game’s next 23 points.

Facing a third down midway through the third quarter, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan found running back Antone Smith out of the backfield. Smith broke an Antrel Rolle tackle and raced 74 yards for a touchdown to put Atlanta up, 20-10.

“We caught them in a zero coverage,” Falcons head coach Mike Smith said. “It was a great throw by Matt, getting the ball out of his hands. And in zero, there is no defensive depth and he just outran everybody.”

Preston Parker, New York Giants (October 5, 2014)

With the life all but sucked out of MetLife Stadium, Manning answered on New York’s following drive, marching the team on a 83-yard touchdown drive. Rookie running back Andre Williams accounted for 33 of the yards, including a three-yard rushing touchdown.

The Giants defense then answered, forcing a Falcon three-and-out and giving the ball back to Manning. The quarterback, who completed 19-of-30 passes for 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the afternoon, proceeded to complete 4-of-5 passes on the drive before finding Beckham for the go-ahead score.

“I was proud of the team today,” Manning said. “We got down 10 in the third quarter and we responded and responded right away. We had a drive and a touchdown. Our defense rallied and started getting some sacks and some stoppages, and offensively, we did what we had to do to win. So I was proud of the guys. No one started getting uptight or getting worried.”

On the ensuing drive, Atlanta took over trailing by seven with just over four minutes left. Facing a fourth on one, Smith kept the offense on the field. Ryan dropped back to pass, but felt pressure up the middle from defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins. The second-year pro brought Ryan down for his second sack of the season.

“It was huge,” Coughlin said of Hankins’ play. “I figured they would try to kick the ball. It was close to four minutes (left).”

The Giants (3-2) will travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles Sunday night. Philadelphia (4-1) presently sit in a two-way tie atop the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys.

NEW YORK GIANTS 30 – ATLANTA FALCONS 20

The New York Giants defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 30-20, Sunday afternoon to win the team’s third straight game. Below you will find a new quick hits and tidbits from the Giants victory.

Odell Beckham, New York Giants (October 5, 2014)

Odell Beckham – © USA TODAY Sports Images

Odell Beckham Jr. (unofficially) played 37 snaps and 35 plays Sunday afternoon. On New York’s back-to-back touchdown drives in the third and fourth quarter, Beckham was on the field for the majority of the plays of both series. These were his only consecutive drives of the afternoon. 36 of those snaps were played offensively, one on special teams. Beckham lined up to return one punt. He called a fair catch.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie worked in-and-out of the game. Cromartie said his ankle/groin flared up during the game, and as a result, he took it easy. Cromartie said he believes he’ll be a full participant in practice and will not be limited versus Philadelphia.

After the game, Zack Bowman received X-Rays. He said those x-rays were “precautionary” and not on any specific area. He said multiple times he is “fine.”

Rashad Jennings suffered a left knee sprain in the third quarter. He came out of the game and did not return. Jennings said he believes he is OK, but will have an MRI on the knee. All knee-related injuries are deemed “sprains” before an MRI depicts the exact amount of damage.

Entering the game, Beckham Jr. and Devon Kennard had been dealing with hamstring issues. Both players said they felt fine after the game and did not re-injure the areas. Kennard said he played every special teams snap. His hamstring was wrapped heavily after the game, but assured that was just precautionary and that if there was an aggravation of the area, he’d know already.

Eli Manning completed 19-of-30 passes for 200 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He has now completed 112-of-169 (66.8%) for 1,174 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. At this time last year, Manning had thrown eight touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

The one apparent “blunder” for Manning was when the quarterback overthrew a wide open Beckham for what could have been a 80+-yard touchdown. Manning said after the game that although the ball was in Beckham’s direction, it wasn’t to him. Manning was throwing the ball away. Just as Manning released the ball, Beckham broke open. Manning didn’t see anyone open and started to feel pressure so he threw the ball away. It may look on film like Manning missed Beckham, but in truth he was throwing it away.

After catching three touchdowns a week ago, Larry Donnell didn’t catch a pass and was only targeted once on Sunday. Manning spoke after the game and said that’s just how the game went. Rueben Randle was targeted a game-high 10 times. He caught four of them for 33 yards and a touchdown.

Receiver Preston Parker caught a three passes for a game-high 61 yards, highlighted by a 42-yard reception. Parker returned one kickoff and fumbled the ball away; Atlanta recovered and turned ended up kicking a field goal.

Andre Williams, New York Giants (October 5, 2014)

Andre Williams rushed 20 times for 65 yards and a touchdown, he caught two passes for 18 yards as well. Rashad Jennings ran 10 times for 55 yards.

Quintin Demps intercepted his second pass in as many weeks, but fumbled the ball on the return and Atlanta recovered. Johnathan Hankins had his second sack of the season.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 29-of-45 passes for 316 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Julio Jones caught 11 passes for 105 yards.

Former Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who now plays for the Falcons, was an honorary captain for Atlanta. He recorded a sack of Manning in the second quarter, his first of the season.

NEW YORK GIANTS 30 – ATLANTA FALCONS 20

The New York Giants pulled out their third-straight victory Sunday afternoon, defeating the Atlanta Falcons, 30-20. It certainly didn’t start pretty, but as the final seconds ticked off of the clock, New York remained within one game of the NFC East division lead with a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on the horizon.

Below you will find some of the studs, and some of the duds, from the Giants victory this Sunday.

Please note, these observations are from the initial reaction. Game film has not been watched and the game has not been analyzed. These are just initial notes taken from Sunday’s game.

THE STUDS:

Odell Beckham Jr.
Starting with the obvious, the Giants rookie was everything the team could have hoped for and more Sunday afternoon. There were the big plays, the explosiveness and the scoring that Jerry Reese and Co. imagined when the team selected Beckham 12th overall in the draft.

Andre Williams
Another rookie, Andre Williams, looked eerily familiar to another former Giant that wore No. 44. Williams was running as if he was looking for contact. The thing about Williams is that he seems to get stronger as the game goes on. In the first half, Williams had -1 rushing yards. When the game ended, he had 65. He looks like he can be a very, very special player.

Eli Manning, New York Giants (October 5, 2014)

Eli Manning – © USA TODAY Sports Images

Eli Manning
I had my doubts, a lot of them, during the preseason and first game of the regular season. I wrote them down, I made them known. I did not believe Eli Manning could play in a West Coast offense.

I was wrong.

Manning completed 19-of-30 passes for 200 yards, neither number impressive, but he threw two touchdowns and no interceptions. Manning continues to get the ball out of his hands lightning fast and is thriving with Ben McAdoo. The quarterback looks revitalized and has the Giants playing some of the best football I’ve seen in awhile.

The Offensive Line
Eli Manning was sacked just once and pressured just a few other times. Carl Banks said on WFAN a few weeks ago that sometimes it isn’t the offensive lines with the best players that are the best offensive lines, it’s the unit that plays together as unit the most that makes the best team. A few weeks in, that seems to be the Giants line. They’re opening running lanes and protecting Manning. As long as the line keeps doing those two things, the Giants will be in good shape.

Johnathan Hankins, New York Giants (October 5, 2014)

Johnathan Hankins – © USA TODAY Sports Images

Johnathan Hankins
I’ve said it, written it and tweeted it 100 times, the Giants have something special in Johnathan Hankins. Not only is Hankins a force against the run, but he’s developing into quite the interior pass rusher as well. Aside from the fourth down sack, there was one play that really stood out to me. In the third-ish quarter, Matt Ryan handed the ball off to a running back who tried to stretch it to the far side of the field. Hankins exploded off the line, shed his block, pursued down the line of scrimmage and made the tackle for a one-yard gain. It’s been a Giants routine to draft defensive tackles (Barry Coefield, Linval Joseph) and then let them go when their contracts are up. Hankins may be one the team is forced to hold on to. He’s a special player. A very, very special player.

THE DUDS:

Quintin Demps
The duds this week are much like those against the Houston Texans, more “uh ohs” than anything else. Demps’ interception was nice, but to then fumble the ball on the return isn’t good. Demps came to the Giants being known as someone with sure hands, for whatever reason that’s changed. Going back to the preseason, Demps has fumbled three returns (two kicks, one INT). Maybe the most infuriating thing about Demps return was after the ball came out, he was the only one to try to jump on it.

Preston Parker
The Giants defense bailed the team out on Preston Parker’s kick return fumble, but he cannot let go of that ball. That’s a play where the Giants offense is looking to answer, and instead the defense is right back on the field. Not to mention, it looked like Parker got caught by the turf monster on his 42-yard catch that should have been a 62-yard touchdown.

Chandler Fenner (48), Kansas City Chiefs (August 30, 2012)

Chandler Fenner (48) – © USA TODAY Sports Images

Giants Sign CB Chandler Fenner from Practice Squad; Waive LB Dan Fox: The New York Giants signed cornerback Chandler Fenner off of the team’s Practice Squad on Saturday. To make room for Fenner, the Giants waived linebacker Dan Fox.

Fenner was signed to the Practice Squad on August 31, 2014. Fenner was originally signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2012 NFL Draft. He did not make the team but the Seattle Seahawks signed him to their Practice Squad in December 2012. He missed all of 2013 with a knee injury that landed him on Seattle’s Injured Reserve. The Giants signed Fenner on August 1, 2014. He has a nice combination of size and athleticism and he plays a physical game.

Fox is a rookie free agent who was also signed to the Practice Squad on August 31. He was signed to the 53-man roster in mid-September when linebackers Jon Beason (foot/ankle) and Devon Kennard (hamstring) got hurt. If he clears waivers, the Giants will likely re-sign him to the Practice Squad.

Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, Roster, and Depth Chart sections of the website.

October 3, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: Everyone on the 53-man roster practiced on Friday.

LB Jon Beason (foot/ankle), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring), WR Odell Beckham (hamstring), and P Steve Weatherford (left ankle) practiced on a limited basis.
