Analysis: Giants win OT thriller.Giants
(4-8) vs Redskins (6-6) Game Preview
Dec 9 Here's scheme adjustment Giants should make with Odell Beckham out vs. Redskins. With Evan Engram off the injury report and the Giants having success using Rhett Ellison and Scott Simonson together at tight end, coach and play-caller Pat Shumur must decide how to distribute reps. One option is to play all three together in what is called '13' personnel, with one running back, one wide receiver and three tight ends.
Dec 8 For the third time in the last four weeks, the Giants will face a backup quarterback on Sunday afternoon, when Washington trots out Mark Sanchez at FedEx Field in the absence of both Alex Smith and Colt McCoy, who were lost for the season with broken legs.
Will Hernandez starting to show why Giants drafted him so high. The overhaul the Giants attempted this season with their offensive line didn't take right away, but the unit's drastic improvement has been a key factor in the team winning three of its past four games.
Dec 7 Giants not overlooking Mark Sanchez in matchup vs. Redskins. The Giant who probably knows the most about Sanchez is head coach Pat Shurmur. He was the Eagles' offensive coordinator when Sanchez was there.
With Mark Sanchez under center, the Redskins' quarterback carousel is spinning again. Before signing with the Vikings in March, Kirk Cousins became the first Redskins quarterback to start every game in three consecutive seasons since Joe Theismann from 1981 to 1984.
Giants safety battled homeless childhood to live out a dream. with Landon Collins on IR, this is Chandler's real chance, starting Sunday against the Redskins, to open eyes and convince the Giants that he does not deserve to be homeless in the NFL.
Dec 6 Just
a few weeks ago, Mark Sanchez was sitting on the unemployment line. Improbably,
he'll be a starting quarterback for the rest of this season. The Redskins have
no other options left now that Colt McCoy will likely join Smith on injured reserve.
The Giants must decide whether to sign Collins to a long-term extension, let him go in free agency or apply the franchise tag, which would give him a high-paying one-year contract in the neighborhood of $12 million for 2019. Only one player per team per season can be tagged.
Dec 5 Is Giants' Odell Beckham destined to be like Calvin Johnson? Records and 0 playoff wins 'can add up' to take a toll. Beckham is setting individual records but piling up team losses, which sounds a lot like another great NFL receiver from earlier this century.
Landon Collins has played 804 snaps this season, but the New York Giants will be without their most decorated defensive player heading into Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins in Landover, Maryland. Whether the two-time Pro Bowl safety will play another snap in 2018 - or another in a Giants' uniform again - remains uncertain moving forward.
Dec 4 Giants' offensive line faces changes in 2019 but it's stabilized now. What was billed as one of the great game-within-the-game mismatches of the NFL season - the Giants offensive line against the Bears defensive front seven - was anything but after coach and play-caller Pat Shurmur learned from the previous week's mistake and stuck to running Saquon Barkley.
Odds are against Kyle Lauletta playing for Giants this season. At this moment in time, as you attempt to interpret Shurmur-ese, it appears more likely than not Manning will start the rest of the way unless and until it is determined by Shurmur that he does not give the Giants the best chance to win.Dec 3 Giants win over the Bears 30-27

(3-8) vs Chicago (8-3) Game Preview
Dec 2 Scoring continues to be up, up and away in the NFL, and the Giants continue to try, usually unsuccessfully, to keep up. The league has never seen anything like it.
Eli Manning's INTs are way down over 27 games, but will ballhawk Bears, Eddie Jackson change that? Interceptions have not been a problem because Manning is on pace to match his 2008 career-low of 10 interceptions in a season.
Dec 1 It took awhile, but Giants' O-line isn't the worst anymore. The Giants have been burned for the second-most sacks in the NFL this season, but coach Pat Shurmur believes their overhauled offensive line has put together three solid games in a row entering Sunday's test against Khalil Mack and the Bears.
It's unlikely the Giants can pull off the upset without rookie running back Saquon Barkley having a big night. The Penn State product has been as good as advertised as a rusher and a receiver. The 5-11, 233-pound Barkley has an NFL-high seven carries of 25 or more yards, including rushes of 68, 51, 50 and 46 yards. He also has pass receptions of 57 and 55 yards.
Nov 30 Even athletic superfreak Saquon Barkley needs a break once in a while. Giants coach Pat Shurmur's decision to sit Barkley for all five plays on a crucial third-quarter possession as momentum slipped away in last week's loss to the Eagles drew a lot of attention.
When the Giants released Davis Webb before this season, cutting the quarterback with the best arm, best training camp and best chances of replacing Eli Manning, it seemed clearly intended to protect Manning and avoid a repeat of last year's benching fiasco with Geno Smith.
Nov 29 Special
Report - It seems like yesterday the Giants were all full of excitement and
momentum, talking about running the table for a chance to qualify for the post-season
and the big things every NFL team desire most. In fact, for most of the first
half of Sunday's game in Philadelphia, it looked like all that stuff was, just
Eli Manning could return as Giants' starting QB in 2019. There is still a chance that Manning will return to the Giants in 2019 -- and even return as their starting quarterback, according to a team source. The decision on his future has "absolutely not" been made, the source said, and management is open to the idea that another year with Manning at the helm might be the best option they have.
Nov 28 Pat Shurmur likes Eli Manning. Manning is what Shurmur wants in a quarterback: Calm, refined, company man, consummate worker and leader-by-example rather than leader-by-talking. This does not mean Shurmur will give Manning a free pass for the remainder of the season.
The raw data are incriminating. Saquon Barkley ran the ball nine times for 94 yards in the first half in Philadelphia and the Giants outscored the Eagles 19-11 on Sunday. Barkley ran it just four times for 7 yards in the second half and the Giants were outscored 14-3. Did play-caller Pat Shurmur lose his mind?
Nov 27 Missed penalty call kept Giants from chance at tying field goal. On the final play, the Giants in desperation tried for some trickery, with Sterling Shepard catching a 3-yard pass and then lateralling to Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham was immediately tripped up by linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill - actually tripped up. That is a penalty, for either tripping (10 yards) or possibly a leg-whip (a 15-yard penalty).
Tight end Evan Engram was running a seam route during his normal in-uniform pregame warm-ups Sunday when he felt a "grab" in his hamstring. It cost him the entire game against the Eagles. Engram said the hamstring injury is not related to the knee injury that caused him to miss three games earlier this season.
Pat Shurmur dismisses Odell Beckham's criticism of Giants offense vs. ailing Eagles. Odell Beckham Jr. criticized coach Pat Shurmur's "game plan" on Sunday for not attacking the Eagles' depleted secondary downfield more in Sunday's loss. Shurmur's response on Monday was basically a long-winded way of saying Beckham is wrong.Nov 26 Giants lose to the Eagles 25-22

(3-7) vs Eagles (4-6) Game Preview
Nov 25 Giants visit Eagles with chance to prove the turnaround is real. This is the line of demarcation for the Giants. A 3-7 record would normally mean they are down and out, but in this NFC East, they are merely down. If they beat the sagging Eagles to improve to 4-7, it puts the Giants two games behind the Cowboys (6-5) and Redskins (6-5) with five to play.
Nov 24 Now it gets real for the Giants. The seduction started two weeks ago on the West Coast. That's when hope started to seep into the Giants' locker room following a 27-23 comeback road win over the 49ers. Hope then moved its way East, stimulated by last week's 38-35 home win over the Buccaneers. On Sunday, it arrives in Philadelphia.
Entering Sunday's game vs. Giants, the Eagles know 'it's now or never' to salvage season. The Eagles are 4-6 entering Sunday's game against the New York Giants, which will be followed by a Monday Night Football matchup with Washington and a visit to Dallas. For the Eagles to reach the postseason, the path must go through the division.
Giants, after starting the season 1-7, have won their past two games to get
to 3-7, and with a win Sunday over East rival Philadelphia, they could move to
within two games of the lead in a division that suddenly looks up for grabs.
Nov 22 The Giants are one quarter of the way to fulfilling Odell Beckham Jr.'s goal. But he wasn't the only one in blue who thought winning out was possible. There was belief in the locker room before his hopes were scoffed at from the outside.
A lot has changed since the Eagles handily defeated the Giants in East Rutherford back in Week 6. That game wasn't ever really close, with the Eagles winning 34-13. The Eagles also haven't come close to that level of performance since then, losing three of four games and faltering on both offense and defense.
Nov 21 Resist. Resist the urge. Go against logic and defy what could be an obvious and certainly enticing strategy. The Giants must continue to remember who they are and resist the temptation Sunday to attack the vulnerable Eagles for who they are not.
The Giants defense created a season-high four takeaways against the Buccaneers and is on the upswing. The Giants defense allowed season highs of 510 yards and 31 first downs to the Buccaneers and is on the downturn. All the above numbers are correct, but which conclusion is accurate? That might not be known until Sunday against the Eagles.
Nov 20 Saquon Barkley challenged by coach Pat Shurmur to become more of a grinding running back and accept 3- and 4-yard gains rather than always looking to break out a longer run, Barkley said Monday he has changed his style once he gets the ball in his hands. Considering he is coming off his most productive NFL game, the adjustment is precisely what the Giants need.
Saquon Barkley scoured the film of his 152-yard, three-touchdown tour de force over the Buccaneers on Sunday and said he didn't bend enough at his hips.Seriously. Barkley told the Daily News on Monday that his posture possibly cost him yards at the end of his increasingly effective "dirty" runs through traffic, which he frequently took to the final tackler but just couldn't quite break to daylight.Nov 19 Giants win over Tampa Bay 38-35

Nov 18 Giants' worst unit also can be their catalyst for a turnaround. The assessment from the head coach was this: The Giants' offensive line put together its best performance to date last weekend, and it helped spark a victory over the 49ers. Coach Pat Shurmur said he liked what he saw from new starting right guard Jamon Brown, believing the presence of the 340-pounder helped ease the protection concerns of Eli Manning.
Nov 17 Why Giants have legit chance to finally end 30-point drought. At first glance, it looks like a misprint. But it's not. The Buccaneers cannot possibly be as bad against opposing quarterbacks as the statistics say. But they are. In the nine games the Buccaneers have played, opposing quarterbacks have completed 73.6 percent of their passes for 2,755 yards, 23 touchdowns, one interception and a 122.3 passer rating.
Pat Shurmur wants Saquon Barkley to be more accepting of the between-the-tackles short gain, rather than looking to hit a home run on every rush. Now that Barkley is getting more carries -- he had a season-high 20 last week, his first time over 15 since Week 3 -- maybe it will be easier to not feel like every one is do or die.
Nov 16 The Giants' soap opera seems to be ending its run. The Giants have gone from a team in turmoil to a team finally settling in to play seven more games that can restore some respectability to their season.
The Giants have had 30 "successful" plays and three "explosive" runs in the no-huddle offense, which rank No. 7 and tied for No. 5 in the NFL, respectively, according to Pro Football Focus. From the huddling offense operated for most of the game, they rank No. 30 in "successful" plays and No. 31 in "explosive runs."
Nov 15 Giants must finally give their fans a home victory. They won one for themselves at San Francisco. Now win one for your fans. "It's definitely gonna feel good to have our fans behind us, and it's gonna be really important to us to get this win for us and them," Evan Engram said.
Giants' offensive line looks to build off outstanding effort. The beleaguered offensive line played its best game of the season on Monday night and the Giants won. Coincidence? Hardly.
For two years, the basic rule for beating the Giants defense was throw to the tight end. The trend stopped in the first half of 2018 ... but it resurfaced Monday against the 49ers like the nightmare you forgot you had last night until a fit of memory in the middle of the afternoon.

Nov 12 Odell Beckham Jr. missed the final 11 games last season. Cornerback Richard Sherman last season, in his first year with the 49ers, missed the final seven games. On Monday night, the two marquee players, fully healed, will battle each other when the Giants face the 49ers.
Evan Engram knows execution is key to second-half turnaround. If the Giants are to improve in the second half of the season, Engram will almost certainly be a key contributor. He is doing everything he can to maximize his strengths and eliminate the drops.
Nov 11 The defensive personnel change the Giants should make for the final 8 games. The self-diagnosed knock on the Giants defense is too many big plays allowed in the first eight games. In other words, the spotlight is directly on Curtis Riley.
Nov 10 Giants must really start to feed Saquon Barkley. This is really simple, Giants. More Saquon, less Eli. It's about time and it's really not that difficult. Not only for "Monday Night Football," but for the Giants' future as well. But it must start Monday night against the 49ers.
The Giants went 9-7 in 2011 and won a Super Bowl by getting hot at the right time. Only Eli Manning and Zak DeOssie were around then among those in the 2018 locker room, but Odell Beckham referenced the last great Giants' run when asked what his personal goals are for the rest of a seemingly lost season. "Win eight games. Go 9-7 and go to the playoffs," Beckham said.o
Nov 9 In the only statistical category that really matters, the Giants are no better or worse than last year. They have one win after eight games. Same as 2017, before changes were made to general manager, head coach, most of the assistant coaching staff and about 70 percent of the roster. So are the Giants any better?

There is always a risk in tearing down and building back up an entire offensive line. The Giants did it and failed at the reconstruction job. New head coach Pat Shurmur before the season said his team would go only as far as the offensive line would take it. Well, the Giants have not gone very far, have they?
Nov 5 Giants' last trip to 'quarterback hell' - Why they are hesitant to quit on Eli Manning. The Giants could be in a version of quarterback hell if they move on from Manning without a replacement, after passing on Top 10 picks Sam Darnold (Jets), Josh Allen (Bills) and Josh Rosen (Cardinals) in the 2018 draft.
Nov 4 Special Report - Welcome to the bye week. We don't need to do one of those cutesy mid-season report cards, do we? There is plenty to be said, and very little. The Giants are 1-7 and no matter how you paint one part of the picture or the other, they are 1-7 because they can't finish, can't score enough points and can't win the battle at the line of scrimmage. Here are just a few of the potential headlines that we could use to describe the first half of the year.

Nov 2 The introduction to the NFL has been bittersweet for the Giants rookie class: plenty of snaps but not much winning. Dave Gettleman's top four draft picks from April - Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter and B.J. Hill - are playing key roles right away, but they are not satisfied with the results.
Hey, Giants: Follow Colts' blueprint for rebuilding NFL's worst offensive line. The Colts and Giants both had quarterbacks named Manning for most of this century. They also both have had bad offensive lines for most of this decade.
Fact or Fiction: Saquon Barkley's first eight games have been more incredible than Odell Beckham Jr.'s as a rookie. Protecting the quarterback was the Giants' biggest problem on offense in the first half of the season.
Nov 1 Sometimes you just plain get lucky. With the top priority in the NFL's waiver claim hierarchy, the New York Giants might just have gotten very lucky on Wednesday when they were awarded guard Jamon Brown off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams.

Oct 28 Eli Manning forced to be the Giants' rock in lost season. There have been tough moments for Manning during his 15-year stay, but nothing like this. He does not offer much introspection for public consumption, yet there was a pained look in his eyes this past week as he was barraged with questions after his team traded away two defensive starters for future draft picks, the loud-as-roaring-thunder signal a rebuild is in place.
Oct 27 Giants have one game to prove they still have some life. The Giants, en route to 1-6, have insisted all along that they're thisclose to being a good team and that they're better than what their record says they are.
How did Giants-Saints Eli Apple deal go down? What was Apple's 1st reaction? The NFL trade deadline is in four days. We've already seen several deals, including a pair by the Giants, sending cornerback Eli Apple to the New Orleans Saints and defensive tackle Damon Harrison to the Detroit Lions.
Corey Coleman wants in. The last time most of the football public saw the newest wide receiver for the New York Giants, the 2016 first-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns wanted out. That was nearly three months ago when Coleman was shown on HBO's "Hard Knocks" suggesting to his former coach, Hue Jackson, that the Browns should trade him - and the organization did just that, dealing him to Buffalo. Two teams later, Coleman wants to prove he's not a bust with Big Blue.
Oct 26 Is more Sterling Shepard the answer for Giants offense? Secret to his big plays. It wasn't just that Sterling Shepard had a Giants' season-high 167 receiving yards in Week 7. It was the way he got them: Catches covering 58, 53 and 38 yards. Leaping at the ball's highest point. Tip-toeing the sideline. Moving a drive into the red zone three different times.
The Giants this week traded two of his starters, but defensive coordinator James Bettcher emphatically said today he will not tolerate a decline in effort or production from anyone on his unit.
With Giants in disarray, Redskins can play to strengths. Over their last 23 games, the Giants are just 4-19. This past week, the franchise traded two defensive starters - Eli Apple and Damon Harrison - ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Washington Redskins. Quarterback Eli Manning appears washed up.
Oct 25 Don't tell the Giants about the white flag raised outside their building. After trading away their second defensive starter in as many days, the 1-6 Giants don't believe their front office is surrendering this season and thinking only about the future.
When the Giants take the field against Washington on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium, the starting lineup will look drastically different than the team that took the field in Monday night's 23-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Here's a look at the most likely Giants starting lineup, now that Harrison and Apple have been dealt.
Oct 24 'Snacks' Harrison traded to Lions as Giants' fire sale picks up. Eli Apple was just the beginning. Giants GM Dave Gettleman did not wait long to sell off another piece of the defense, sending Damon "Snacks" Harrison to the Lions for a fifth-round pick.
