(2-8) vs Redskins (4-6) Game Preview
Nov 23 Giants relishing Thanksgiving spotlight that they dimmed. Getting things right has been one misadventure after another for the Giants, on and off the field. They did not win any games in September, won one in October and thus far one in November. Beating the Chiefs 12-9 in overtime Sunday offered a rare release in this tightest of seasons and allowed for at least some good cheer at this time of year.
Nov 22 Special Report - One foot in front of the other, the saying goes. After pulling off an upset Sunday afternoon by beating Kansas City at MetLife Stadium, Giants found themselves with their second victory in 10 tries - and let's be honest, Kansas City didn't look like a playoff-bound team should - and have their eyes on at least saving face by getting a few more wins before the season closes out.
Sterling Shepard was not on the field for Tuesday's light practice, and it
appears he has little chance to play Thursday night against the Redskins.
Ereck Flowers is starting to bloom. With fans and analysts preparing to slap the dreaded "bust" label on the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 draft, the 23-year-old Flowers was working on every little detail of his game behind the scenes.
Nov 21 Injury hits Giants offensive line as soon as it comes together. Right guard D.J. Fluker came out of Sunday's 12-9 overtime victory over the Chiefs with a toe injury that will force him to miss Thursday night's game with the Redskins at FedEx Field.
If the Giants can beat the reeling Redskins after a short week, or at least hang tough, they may have a run in them, whatever it entails. And McAdoo may have a much greater chance to keep his job than most assumed.
Eli Manning is likely still the QB for next year's Giants, who may not draft a top quarterback after all. Complicating matters is that the jobs of both Reese and McAdoo are on the line for mismanaging this catastrophic 2017 season, and their futures with the Giants could impact Manning's.
Overlooked Giants WR Roger Lewis comes up with biggest play in win over Chiefs. Lewis seized the moment late in overtime when he made a tremendous sliding catch of a 34-yard pass from quarterback Eli Manning.
Damon "Snacks" Harrison has a reputation for feeding on running backs, but the Giants defensive tackle had himself a new meal on Sunday. Harrison picked off a shuffle pass from Alex Smith late in the first quarter for the first interception of his career.Nov 20 Giants win over the Chiefs 12-9

Gamegirl ..."If you were one of the few die-hard fans who came out to the stadium today, or got yourself a bargain basement priced ticket, you did yourself well.."
Mikefan ..."Aldrick Rosas got the Giants into the mess, and then he got them out. Rosas missed on his extra point attempt after the Giants scored a touchdown to take a lead in the second quarter. You knew that sooner or later that one point difference would become a problem, and it did.."

addition to full-time captains Eli Manning, Jonathan Casillas and Zak DeOssie,
Ben McAdoo selects three game-day captains each week. It was eyebrow-raising that
cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was named a game-day captain for last Sunday's
The Giants don't have to win Sunday's game against the Chiefs on the scoreboard. Sure, that would be nice. After last week's game against the 49ers in which a number of Giants players were either quitting or, as Ben McAdoo euphemistically called it, "lacking a desire to finish," the team will be judged Sunday by its guts and not its end result.
Here are the underdog players who should see more playing time on Sunday - or current starters who should be featured more prominently - in order to make the Giants more competitive, not to mention more fun to watch.'
you're a Giants fan on the fence about attending Sunday's home game against
the Chiefs, Ben McAdoo wants you to know his team plans to show up.
Giants will deploy their seventh different starting offensive line in 10 games
on Sunday against the Chiefs. With right tackle Justin Pugh out with a back injury,
rookie Chad Wheeler is set to make his first career start.
It's easy to take Eli Manning for granted. Maybe now more than ever. And while he alone hasn't been capable of overcoming all the chaos around him, his performance and exemplary demeanor through one of the biggest abominations in franchise history should not go unnoticed.
When the national anthem is played before Sunday's Giants-Chiefs game, Olivier Vernon will continue to do what he has done since the third week of the season. He will take a knee. Vernon is the only Giants player who continues to protest during the national anthem, and he plans to do so for the foreseeable future.
Nov 17 An
elevated knowledge of football is required to determine if players are putting
forth effort, according to Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Steve Spagnuolo is telling his team not to let a good play or bad play affect the next play. Unfortunately for the Giants defense, the next play is seemingly always another bad play.
McAdoo took the unusual step Wednesday of showing game tape of Sunday's flop
to his entire team, rather than have the Giants break off into offense and defense,
as they usually do.
Running backOrleans Darkwa had little leverage after finishing last season on injured reserve due to the fractured tibia that plagued him for two years. But Darkwa is earning some negotiating power with a breakout season before becoming an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
John Greco believes his veteran presence can help Giants offensive line The guard brings his 10-year resume to a squad reeling from injuries. Greco worked out for the Giants during Week 1 of the season after he was cut by the Browns.
fans are frantically attempting to unload their tickets to the remaining four
home games. As of Wednesday afternoon, there were 8,095 tickets available for
the Giants game Sunday.
Nov 15 Ereck Flowers continues an impressive streak. Flowers hasn't allowed a sack in 282 pass-blocking snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
The Giants have heeded the calls from their fanbase and signed a veteran offensive lineman with significant NFL experience. They're just about three months late. The 1-8 Giants signed veteran guard John Greco.
The Giants signed free agent linebacker Akeem Ayers and offensive guard John Greco on Tuesday, as well as wideout/return specialist Kalif Raymond off the practice squad, and placed linebacker Keenan Robinson (quad) on injured reserve.
Walk around the Giants' locker room after a game and you can see the shock in the players' eyes. They seem to have no legitimate idea why this season is unfolding the way it is.
Steve Spagnuolo is a proven defensive coordinator, but he has been guilty of over-thinking with this group. He spoke of this season as "graduate school" for his guys, viewing what took place in 2016 as a commencement, of sorts, after expertly blending the old with the new.
Don't follow the leader: Ever since Giants became Odell Beckham Jr.'s team (and that infamous Boat Trip), they've been a disaster.
Giants owners threw Ben McAdoo a life jacket on Monday, assuring him he will
finish the season as head coach, but there was no time to express gratitude aboard
this sinking ship.
Lopsided losses the last two weeks to the Rams and 49ers have raised questions about the Giants players' competitiveness and determination. Coach Ben McAdoo said today it is not a widespread problem, but admitted there are times when he expects more.Nov 13 Giants lose to San Francisco 31-21

(1-7) vs 49ers (0-9) Game Preview
Nov 12 Manning makes his 208th consecutive regular season start Sunday, tying him with his older brother, Peyton, for the second-most consecutive starts in NFL history.
How might you feel if the Giants lose to an 0-9 49ers team playing with a first-year quarterback (C.J. Beathard) no one's ever heard of at what will be an apathetic, half-empty Levi's Stadium?
Evan Engram, the Giants' rookie tight end and leading receiver, vehemently disagreed with the rats who anonymously ripped Ben McAdoo this week saying the coach has "lost the team".
Nov 11 After anonymous quotes surfaced Wednesday from two players who suggested Ben McAdoo had lost the team and that he was only out for himself, many of the Giants' most important leaders backed the coach and excoriated the players who hid behind a veil of secrecy and wouldn't put their names on the complaints.
With the Giants' season going nowhere, the team is looking toward the future. So guys such as Gallman are receiving auditions. After three inactive weeks, Gallman has played five straight games but last Sunday against the Rams, Gallman had a critical fumble, one of about 219 awful Giants plays in the 51-17 debacle.
How would Giants players react if QB Eli Manning gets benched? 'It would be disrespectful'. One player said a change wouldn't be received well because Manning gives the team the best chance to win and it would be "tough sledding" with a rookie quarterback.
There is no escape from the losing. That's what the Giants are learning this season as they tumble through a schedule that is only halfway completed and has featured one win in eight games. That record, it follows them everywhere. Home. To the store. Online.
Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett stood for the national anthem for the first time all season as the NFL honors the military as part of its Veterans Day celebrations. Olivier Vernon, the only Giant who kneels during the anthem to protest social injustice and police brutality, took notice.
players were ticked off on Thursday after two anonymous players trashed head
coach Ben McAdoo in an ESPN report, and those players are out to find the culprits.
Eli Manning wasn't even born the last time the Giants found themselves in a predicament such as this. You have to go back to 1980, a season many consider rock bottom for the franchise, to find a template for this rate of despair. That year, as in this one, the team won just once in its first eight games.
Giants-49ers was a big deal when Rhett Ellison's dad played for SF. The two teams met in the playoffs three straight years. The 49ers on in 1984, the Giants won in 1985 and 1986. "Isn't that crazy how it is now?" Ellison marveled. "Completely the opposite of how it was in the '80s."
51-17 blowout loss to the Rams made it look like the Giants had quit on Ben
McAdoo. But Wednesday's latest locker room leak confirmed it.
Eli Apple admitted that he could have made a better play on the 52-yard touchdown
pass scored by receiver Robert Woods, a play on which Apple also confessed to
Manning wants to play, no matter how bad things get for the Giants this season.
The 36-year-old starting quarterback made that clear on Tuesday while speaking
at his locker as he addressed questions about head coach Ben McAdoo leaving the
door open for a potential quarterback change at some point this season.
soon as the doors to the Giants' locker room open every Tuesday afternoon,
reporters and cameramen flock to quarterback Eli Manning's stall. After Manning
finished his meeting with the media, the horde moved down one locker to rookie
quarterback Davis Webb. Webb has suddenly been thrust into the spotlight and the
third-round pick held court with reporters.
Jack(rabbit) is back. Giants coach Ben McAdoo has reinstated cornerback Janoris Jenkins from his "indefinite" suspension after a week. The team has also re-signed linebacker Deontae Skinner, waived cornerback Tim Scott and defensive end Jordan Williams, and placed linebacker Nigel Harris on injured reserve.
Nov 7 Have the Giants quit? It is always and forever the accusation when teams go rotten and rarely is it an accurate depiction of what is going down. To quit is not to care, not to give effort, not to have the desire to win. This is not the Giants. No, they have not quit, yet.
Ben McAdoo seemed to walk back his postgame comments in which he didn't rule out getting some of the younger players reps in games this season. "Eli, he's our quarterback," McAdoo said, adding that he wasn't concerned about Manning's consecutive start streak. "But that doesn't mean at some point in time, we won't throw another guy in there to get a look at him."
The last time the Giants were in a prime franchise quarterback draft position was 2004, right after Tom Coughlin was hired to replace Jim Fassel, when they owned the fourth pick and traded with the Chargers, who made Manning the first overall pick against his wishes. "We think he's got a lot of years left in him," John Mara said in June. That was then, before what was supposed to be a Super Bowl-contending season, and this is now, The Fall of The House of Mara.
There are transformative events for every franchise, moments that come to define a particular season or era and often shape the course of that team's immediate and long-term future. What happened in Sunday's meltdown against the Rams likely will be one of those events, and as a result, the Giants may never be the same.
There is no professional athlete more relentlessly capable at keeping his emotions in check than Eli Manning, but as stoic as he appears in public, the losing is eating at him. The Giants are 1-7 this season and coming off a 51-17 rout by the Rams.Nov 6 Giants lose to the Rams 51-17

(1-6) vs Rams (5-2) Game Preview
matchup between the Giants and the Rams features a division-leading team against
a team in contention for the No. 1 pick in next year's draft.
The Giants took another body blow in this dismal season Saturday, as center Weston Richburg was placed on injured reserve.
Report - On Sunday, the Giants will host the Los Angeles Rams (5-2), a team
that was once struggling but now appears to have a path and some momentum. Both
teams are coming off a bye. The Giants, meanwhile, may still be floundering at
1-6, but we'll have a better picture once this next game, their eighth, is over.
Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese both could go down if this Giants ship keeps sinking, but if it's going to be one or the other that is judged, Ben McAdoo's Friday chest-puffing about his practices certainly should be entered as evidence.
The Giants will be without five defensive players, including four starters, as the Los Angeles Rams make their way into MetLife Stadium on Sunday, averaging 30.3 points per game - the second-most in the league.
Shepard is a go for Sunday's game against the visiting Los Angeles Rams (5-2)
when the Giants (1-6) need him more than ever. The Giants need to open it up and
challenge defenses on offense. Shepard will help them do that.

The headline as we move forward is not about resurgence, or about rebuilding as we came to realize after the 2017 trading period expired without a single transaction.
Joan H. Tisch, the matriarch of the family that owns 50 percent of the Giants franchise, passed away Thursday morning at the age of 90 following what the team called a brief illness.
Nov 2 Giants
coach Ben McAdoo remains arrogant and unapologetic while losing control of
team narrative. Ben McAdoo clearly is going to go down swinging.
Teams don't enter the year with Super Bowl expectations, stumble to 1-6 with turnoil all around and then come back intact after whatever disappointing end they reach. Those changes may very well start at the top with head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese.
Left tackle Andrew Whitworth, the player general manager Jerry Reese felt was too old to pursue, has been a major factor in the Rams' 5-2 start, according to LA coach Sean McVay.
Nov 1 The New York Giants announced they have re-signed veteran defensive end Devin Taylor to their 53-man roster. To make room for Taylor, the Giants placed DE/OLB Cap Capi, who has been nursing a hamstring injury, on injured reserve.
Jenkins suspension is more proof Ben McAdoo has lost at least part of Giants
locker room. Ben McAdoo has to be coaching for his and Jerry Reese's jobs the
second half of this season after a second top defensive back in three weeks drew
a suspension for disrespecting the coach.
The New York Football Giants have stopped being the New York Football Giants. Meet the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Giants. Meet Ben McAdoo, the ringmaster who better find a way to become a taskmaster if he wants to keep his job.
Reese's theory that the Giants "bought into the hype," specifically
