Giants week-by-week breakdownd   |  Game-by-game predictions  -  Curtis Rawls   -  James Kratch

Oct 21 Olivier Vernon (ankle) is among five Giants ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. LB Jonathan Casillas (neck), LB Calvin Munson (quad), RB Paul Perkins (ribs) and C Weston Richburg (concussion) are also out. WR Sterling Shepard is questionable.

Barely nine minutes had passed Sunday night in Denver when Jason Pierre-Paul first took down Trevor Siemian, stripping the Broncos quarterback of the ball. Later, as the Broncos attempted to cut a third quarter deficit, the Giants defensive end wrapped up Siemian again at midfield, helping stall another drive, before tying his career-high with a third sack in the fourth quarter.
The three sacks gave the eighth-year defensive end a team-high 4.5. But perhaps his night was a positive sign. Now his pass-rushing skills will be put to a more challenging October test when the Giants face Seattle Sunday at MetLife Stadium because Russell Wilson presents a problem. The quarterback often fails to remain tucked inside his pocket.
Unfortunately for Giants defense, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson poses greater challenge than Trevor Siemian. The elusive and dangerous Seahawks quarterback comes into MetLife Stadium this Sunday as the Giants try to build off their first win of the season.

Cornerback Eli Apple and safety Darian Thompson both came into the league together last year as first and third-round picks for the Giants respectively. Although each man's rookie season took a different path their back playing together in the defensive secondary where, after having a slow start to their respective seasons, they've begun pulling their weight.

Oct 20 Mike Sullivan said that Ben McAdoo handed him the play-calling duties with no strings attached. While McAdoo has not announced who will call the plays on Sunday against the Seahawks - in fact, he announced that he never would announce it - the assumption is that after the win and the success in Denver that Sullivan will continue in the role.
With the 1-5 Giants playing the 3-2 Seahawks on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, Sullivan is expected to continue the play-calling for an offense that remains short-handed with the team's top two receivers, Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall, out for the season and an offensive line (five starting combinations in six games) that has struggled to find consistency.

Mike Sullivan's run-heavy attack thrived for Giants by catching Broncos off guard. The Giants offensive coordinator could not have been handed the responsibility of calling plays at a worse time, with three top receivers injured and facing a Broncos defense that has allowed the fewest yards per game. He hit the Broncos where they least expected it.
Giants offensive line coach Mike Solari and running backs coach Craig Johnson were speaking to the team's backs on the sideline early in Sunday's 23-10 win over the Broncos. Right guard D.J. Fluker joined the group and instructed running back Orleans Darkwa to "hit it. He'll reach out and I'm going to pancake him."

Oct 19 Orleans Darkwa reflects on breakout game: 'I've come a long way'. The fan favorite finally enjoyed his breakout game in last Sunday's 23-10 Giants upset over the Broncos, rushing for 117 yards on 21 carries, both career-highs.

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie wants everyone to know that he's back, he's over what he calls a miscommunication between him and head coach Ben McAdoo that led to him being suspended, and that he accepts full responsibility for what happened.
Rodgers-Cromartie did provide a bit of a missing narrative on what took place in the Chargers game. In the second half he was covering a deep pass and his foot was stepped on. The medical staff examined him and the coaching staff decided to keep him out for the rest of the game. "I get mad, you know? I'm a competitor," he said of slamming his helmet down in frustration and leaving the sideline.
Rodgers-Cromartie said he watched the entire Giants 23-10 win in Denver. Unable to travel with the team, he instead returned to his alma mater at Tennessee State and even addressed the college players, which he said was difficult for him to do given his suspension.

Giants co-owner John Mara said he is "very disappointed" by his team's start to this season. "We're 1-5,'' Mara said to reporters Wednesday after the NFL owners meeting in Manhattan. "How could I possibly feel good about that?''
Mara clarified remarks made by Tisch one day earlier and made it clear neither of them had anything to do with McAdoo's decision to relinquish the play-calling last week in Denver. He said Reese "probably had that discussion with him, but even Jerry would not and did not tell him that he had to give up the play calling duties. That has to be the head coach's decision."

Oct 18 Can Giants get back in NFC playoff race? Plotting an improbable, not impossible, road back. It's hard to see the Giants winning eight or nine of their remaining 10 games to climb out of the deep hole they've dug. But ... you never know.

Giants co-owner Steve Tisch said the pressure was on Ben McAdoo with adversity swirling last week and he raved about how he handled it with the Giants on the verge of a major implosion.
Tisch did say, though, he and fellow co-owner John Mara have discussed the team's play calling situation in the past, both together and with McAdoo, and suggested the topic was raised again before Sunday's surprising 23-10 win over the Broncos.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will be back on the field with the Giants for practice on Wednesday after what amounted to a one-week suspension for violating team rules, the team announced.

NFL News
NFL owners, players, commissioner Roger Goodell continue discussion on social activism.

Oct 17 What was Giants' Ben McAdoo's message to players before upset of Broncos? It appeared that Giants coach Ben McAdoo was on the verge of losing the locker room last week. Instead, his undermanned squad rallied for an improbable 23-10 win at Denver on Sunday night.
A Band-Aid. That's what the Giants applied to their bloody 2017 season Sunday night in Denver in the form of their resounding and complete 23-10 victory over the Broncos. It, too, is what coach Ben McAdoo applied to his own tenuous job status.

The feel was different, and Ben McAdoo liked it. No, McAdoo on Monday did not come out and declare he is permanently handing the play-calling duties over to Mike Sullivan, his offensive coordinator. He did not have to. McAdoo said what he said, and it was obvious what he meant.

Giants CBs step up in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's absence. The Giants replaced Rodgers-Cromartie with veteran Ross Cockrell and newcomer Donte Deayon. The Giants turned in their best defensive effort of the season in the 23-10 upset win
Giants coach Ben McAdoo remains tight-lipped with regards to suspended corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. McAdoo said in his Monday conference call that he plans to visit with him "a little bit later in the week" but provided no details on when and where that will take place.

Eli Manning goes from throwing all over to run, run, run. Manning, who entered Week 6 with the most passing attempts in the league, threw only 19 times in Sunday's 23-10 win against the Broncos.
Eli Manning is hearing the trade rumors. This is Manning's 14th season with the Giants and never before has he heard trade rumors floated around the media - this is largely make-believe stuff - the way he has recently.

Gamegirl ..."I couldn't believe the Giants had a 17-3 lead at the end of the half. Imagine how I felt at the end of the game..."
Mikefan ..."Ben McAdoo fell on his sword tonight giving up his play calling, and whether that made the difference or not, you have to give him credit for doing it..."

Giants (0-5) vs Broncos (3-1) Game Preview
Denver is coming off their bye week. They had wins against the Chargers and Cowboys, followed by a loss to the Bills. That was their only game away from the stadium to date. Their last game right before the bye was a 16-10 win playing at home against the Raiders.
The Giants lost more than just a game last week playing against the Chargers. Four wide receivers went down as the Giants gave up a fourth quarter lead once again, to lose their fifth straight game of the season 27-22.

Oct 14 The drama continues for the 0-5 Giants. Coach Ben McAdoo said Friday morning that he will "revisit" the suspension of cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie at the beginning of next week.
Giants coach Ben McAdoo finally discusses Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspension with theteam. Jason Pierre-Paul did not reveal any details of McAdoo's speech, which was believed to be brief, but added that he expects Rodgers-Cromartie to be back with the team next week.

Oct 13 The Giants, once the gold standard of the NFL, are now a dysfunctional mess. The Giants won 11 games last season and winning covers up a lot of problems. The 0-5 start causes fractures way beyond the epidemic of broken ankles.

Wins and losses likely won't get McAdoo fired (as long as there is a win). Schematics won't be his ultimate undoing either. Shaky play calling and situational gaffes can be addressed. It's the rest of the job's responsibilities that threaten him. The DRC mess is a microcosm of McAdoo's failings there.
In a way, this week is the first true test of whether he can keep this together. It has gone beyond whether or not he should call the plays to whether or he should remain the head coach next season. What happens Sunday in Denver should offer a huge clue.

Janoris Jenkins said he left the field before the end of last Sunday's loss to the Chargers because he thought the game was over. The Giants trailed 27-22 and the Chargers were in kneel-down mode when Ben McAdoo called a timeout with 38 seconds remaining. Following the timeout, Philip Rivers kneeled down a second time and the time on the clock expired.

Former Giants
Victor Cruz wants to come back to the Giants and cannot fathom why it did not happen..

Oct 12 All the receivers are injured. All the cornerbacks are revolting. Your 2017 New York Football Giants, everyone! What a hot mess this team has become, not that the man who is supposed to be keeping it together sees it that way. McAdoo was asked about the "perception" that he has lost this team. "Not concerned about perception," he said. "Concerned about reality."
But what this na´ve Giants coach doesn't understand is that perception is most certainly reality in the NFL when a 31-year-old veteran player walks out of the building on a 40-year-old coach and calls his treatment "BS." Even the Giants players who had McAdoo's back on Wednesday weren't foolish enough to try and convince anyone this should be interpreted more positively than the disaster it appears to be.
The Giants coach didn't comport himself very well with his refusal to offer any reasons about why one of his starting cornerbacks was being suspended. During his terse exchange with reporters when asked about DRC's absence, seven times McAdoo answered with, "That's all I have for you right now." Which, of course, was a whole lot of nothing.

Oct 11 Sterling Shepard is the last starting receiver standing - barely. The hobbled second-year wideout was the first of four receivers to be forced out of commission in the Giants' 27-22 loss to the Chargers. Shepard, however, was able to walk - er, limp - away with only a sprained ankle, while Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris all suffered season-ending injuries.
Shepard wore a walking boot on his left foot in the locker room on Tuesday. He said his ankle felt better than it did on Monday, but he's not sure if he'll be ready for Sunday's game at Denver. "I have no idea," Shepard said. "I'm just kind of taking it day to day."

Tavarres King was at his home in New Jersey watching the Giants game on Sunday. So he was expecting the call. "Just a little bit after the game," he said when asked when his phone rang with that familiar 201 area code. "Kind of after they figured out what was going on with everybody."
King spent last year on the Giants' roster, finally getting an opportunity late in the season. The 27-year-old responded with a 44-yard catch in the regular season finale and three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' playoff loss to the Packers.

Like Giants fans, Odell Beckham Jr. can't wait for next season to start. Dr. Joshua Dines, a sports orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, hasn't worked with Beckham, but believes that based on the injury that the wide receiver could easily return to full health in time for next season.

Oct 10 Odell Beckham Jr. will undergo what's fair to call season-ending surgery at some point this week to repair his fractured ankle, the Giants announced Monday.
If he had remained healthy and productive, the Giants would have opened up negotiations after this season and were braced to make Beckham the highest-paid receiver in the league.

On the same day they learned star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is done for the season, Brandon Marshall said he is having surgery on Tuesday that will end his season as well.

Sterling Shepard sprained an ankle on the same series as Marshall and, although he is considered day-to-day, his availability for this weekend in Denver is in doubt. Dwayne Harris' season is over with a fractured fifth metatarsal, a foot injury he sustained returning the second-half kickoff. Harris will have surgery Tuesday.

Ben McAdoo left himself some wiggle room, but also left no doubt: Victor Cruz will not be walking through that door again, no matter how many wide receivers the Giants have on the shelf.

Ben McAdoo taking responsibility as Giants' losing ways continue. Despite being decimated by injuries, McAdoo continued to shoulder much of the blame for the disappointing season on Monday.
The head coach sidestepped commenting directly on cornerback Eli Apple's pointed remark about the team culture during a conference call. He also refused to go into detail about his feelings about cornerback Janoris Jenkins walking off the field before Sunday's game ended.

Eli Manning is a Giant for life, but Big Blue needs to bench quarterback after next five games. Eli Manning is a Giant For Life no matter what. But that doesn't mean he has to be the quarterback for the rest of this dreary season.

Four Giants players have dialogue with Newark police, students. Defensive linemen Damon Harrison and Olivier Vernon, linebacker/tight end Mark Herzlich and offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty were dressed in their blue jerseys.

Giants (0-4) vs Chargers (0-4) Game Preview
Last Sunday the Eagles took an early lead over the LA Chargers playing in StubHub Center, their temporary home. The Chargers chipped away and came close, cutting the lead to just two points twice in the fourth quarter, and ended up with a 26-24 loss.
The Giants were playing at Tampa Bay and held the lead twice during the game. Then, for the second week in a row they watched a kicker on the final play of the game hand them another loss, this time 25-23.

Oct 8 No matter how bad this Giants season gets, it is reasonable to believe that Ben McAdoo would stick around for a third season as head coach. This seemingly near-consensus view is based on several factors.

Tucked into this disappointing Giants season have been disappointing performances from several players, which is how a team gets to 0-4. Count Eli Apple in that group, as this season so far has been a regression from the end of his rookie year.

Oct 7 Offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan believes that despite the team's winless start, the team's offense has begun to turn the corner.
The talent deficiencies of the Giants' offensive line have been well-documented. But what is most disturbing to former Giants Pro Bowl center Shaun O'Hara is the unit's fundamental breakdowns.
The Giants' most-maligned unit could face more trouble than usual Sunday against the Chargers, potentially having to take the field without two starters.

This has the makings of a Perfect Storm: an 0-4 Giants team reuniting Sunday at 1 against the Chargers with a fan base that bought into the Super Bowl hype. The 2017 Giants have not scored in the first quarter.

Even if you are what your record says you are, as a legendary Giants coach once said, Ben McAdoo doesn't see much difference between this year's colossally disappointing 0-4 team and the playoff squad that won 11 games last season.

Eli Manning had just accepted the Ernie Accorsi Humanitarian Award from the man who brought him to the Giants in a blockbuster 2004 draft-day deal. "I want to thank Ernie," Manning said at the April awards dinner. "If it wasn't for him, I'd be playing in a soccer stadium in Los Angeles."

Oct 6 Steve Spagnuolo lets his players self-critique their game film. The bottom line though is that the players have to take what they learned and apply it to their game Sunday against the Chargers.

The New York Giants, last year's 10th overall defense, a brick wall to the end zone and a force against the run, have lost their identity, according to defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who added that opponents "don't fear" the Giants defense the way they might have last year.

Eli Apple doesn't lack for confidence despite sophomore struggles as Giants corner. Eli Apple may be battling a sophomore slump, but it has certainly not deterred his confidence.

Sometimes special teams coordinator Tom Quinn focuses on the mechanical aspects of his kickers. Sometimes it's the psychological. So in a week when both his punter and his kicker had costly flubs in the fourth quarter of the loss to the Bucs, which hat does he wear?

A day after Odell Beckham Jr. said opponents know what's coming from the Giants' offense, coach Ben McAdoo wasn't alarmed. "Your interpretation of what Odell said and mine are entirely different."
Ben McAdoo's confidence in Giants' offense is refreshing. And yet, by stressing improved execution, what McAdoo really ended up saying was that his players, Beckham included, need to play better, and that McAdoo's offensive scheme isn't the reason the Giants are 0-4.
There is nothing heavy-handed about his offense, once again operating without a true fullback, once again unable to establish any forceful push up-front, once again not employing - or, at least, not featuring - a running back willing or able to knock anyone on his butt.

Oct 5 Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a revealing conversation with Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves after Sunday's 25-23 loss. "He was just like, 'You know, we know a lot of what you're doing,' " Beckham said.
The Bucs' coverage on Beckham -- and a few of his own drops, which he indicated were caused by the defense being on to his routes -- limited him to just seven catches (for 90 yards) on 15 targets. While defenders study film all week to learn opponents' tendencies, the Giants are an open book. Opponents have been able to stymie the Giants with a basic Cover 2 defense over the past two seasons.
The Giants were 11-5 last season mostly because of the defense carrying an offense that averaged just 19.4 points per game. The 2017 Giants are averaging 15 ppg this season, tied for 30th with the Ravens.

The Giants spent the summer daydreaming about what their pass rush could look like with a completely healthy Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon as defensive bookends, something they experienced for just a small window last season. Now, as they go into the fifth game of the year, they may be waking up to the reality of playing without both of them.

Lawrence Taylor's advice to the Giants after their 0-4 start.

Oct 4 Eli Manning won't trade his Super Bowl rings for Philip Rivers' mobile film room, but he wouldn't mind having his own.
The Giants drafted Philip Rivers fourth overall in 2004 and traded him to the Chargers for first overall pick Eli Manning, and now all these years later Rivers and Manning will meet in "The 0-4 Bowl" on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
The 0-4 Giants, one of the league's four winless teams, are the most vulnerable to a fractured locker room because, unlike the other three, they were supposed to be a Super Bowl contender this year.

Brandon Marshall was at a loss for words after two more dropped passes Sunday in the Giants' fall to 0-4. "Just not playing well right now," Marshall said after the 25-23 defeat in Tampa Bay. "I haven't played a solid game since I've been here."
It took the 33-year-old veteran until Week 3 to register more than one catch in a game and in the Giants' 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday, Marshall dropped two more passes, including a third-and-4 in the first quarter which halted a drive and resulted in a punt.

Oct 3 Wide receiver Brandon Marshall has had opportunities to make big plays in his first four games with the Giants. But they've slipped through his fingers. Marshall had two more crucial drops in Sunday's 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers, continuing a rough stretch for the 12th-year receiver.
Brandon Marshall was at a loss for words after two more dropped passes Sunday in the Giants' fall to 0-4. "Just not playing well right now," Marshall said after the 25-23 defeat in Tampa Bay. "I haven't played a solid game since I've been here."

You can be a hotshot rookie head coach one year and a clueless head coach under fire your second year. Heaven has turned to hell for Ben McAdoo. The Giants can't win without Odell Beckham Jr., and they can't win with Odell Beckham Jr., and no one expected the Bad News Giants.
Ben McAdoo says Giants 'can't go numb,' need to start and finish strong. The question with the Giants is no longer can this team make a playoff run, but rather how bad are things going to get?"

Giants need to fire ineffective GM Jerry Reese, change team culture and start fresh. That is what Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch must do now as their franchise spirals toward an incredible fifth season out of the playoffs in the past six years.

The Giants are where they deserve to be, owners of an 0-4 record, matching the Browns, 49ers and Chargers as the NFL's winless teams. The 49ers are in rebuilding mode and 0-4 is no surprise. The Browns are the Browns and 0-4 is expected. There is a reason why Eli Manning 14 years ago did not want to play for the Chargers.

Giants (0-3) vs Tampa Bay (1-1) Game Preview
The Buccaneers played their game last Sunday in Minnesota. They fell behind 28-3 in the third quarter and that's all the points the Vikings really needed. There was some scoring, but Tampa lost the game 34-17.
The Giants were down 14-0, but came back strong in the fourth quarter. Then with the game looking to go into overtime, a 61 yard field goal gave the Eagles a 27-24 win with the clock running out.

Sept 30 Giants face a must-win in Tampa Sunday. Unless a team faces the possibility of being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, players and coaches will almost never label a game a must-win situation. Especially a game that's played on Oct. 1.

While there was much fanfare at the start of the season over the additions of Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram, it was Sterling Shepard who reminded everyone just what kind of a threat he is after taking a slant route 77 yards for a touchdown which gave the Giants a temporary lead.

Ben McAdoo's future comes down to the other stuff. The Odell Beckham Jr. situation is a perfect example of that. for the better part of five days, most of the inquiries McAdoo fielded about Beckham were related, one way or another, to Beckham's having imitated a urinating dog on a football field.

NFL News
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hosted a roundtable discussion Tuesday night at the NFL headquarters that was attended by a small group of NFL players and team owners to discuss the wave of protests during the National Anthem last week.

Sept 29 There have been many puzzling aspects of the Giants' stunning 0-3 start. Among them: The use, or lack thereof, of tight end Rhett Ellison. The Giants gave the blocking specialist a four-year, $18 million deal to shore up their run game.
With Orleans Darkwa (back) and Shane Vereen (calf) missing their second straight practice, the Giants could turn to rookie running back Wayne Gallman on Sunday against the Buccaneers.

The following question was posed to Steve Spagnuolo: What would you have said before the season if someone told you after three games, your defense would be ranked dead-last in the league against the run?
Part of the reason it has been happening is because the Giants have not done a very good job tackling. LeGarrette Blount consistently escaped tackle after tackle on Sunday, a growing problem that seems to have gotten worse as the season has progressed.

Sept 28 Ben McAdoo's newest responsibility: 'A plan' to end Giants' celebration penalties. The head coach/offensive play caller is now adding touchdown celebration monitoring to his day-to-day responsibilities with the 0-3 Giants after they've been burned twice this year with post-score penalties.

Justin Pugh backs Giants teammates after he 'didn't understand' message of Colin Kaepernick's protests. Giants guard Justin Pugh said the team is not going to let outside forces "tear us apart."
Justin Pugh was angry. When Colin Kaepernick first sat, then started taking a knee, during the national anthem last season, he was one of the players who expressed disdain on social media and in interviews. With a brother serving in the military, Pugh thought it was a disgrace for a player to show such a lack of respect.

What in the world was Giants' John Jerry thinking on his costly penalty vs. Eagles? Guard John Jerry is as flabbergasted as everyone else about his penalty late in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Eagles.

Ben McAdoo needs to bench Odell Beckham Jr. for Sunday's first quarter in Tampa Bay and not just hint that he'll do it the next time Beckham pretends to urinate like a dog, as McAdoo did Wednesday when he said "we have a plan for it if it does" happen again.
If Giants owner can't get through to Odell Beckham, will anyone? If it doesn't sink in, Odell Beckham Jr. should understand that he will jeopardize being a Giant for life. Don't blow it, kid.
This time, Odell Beckham Jr. . . . uhhh . . . ticked off the wrong guy. By pretending to be a dog urinating in the end zone while celebrating a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 loss, Beckham incurred the wrath of the man who ultimately may decide if the talented yet tempestuous receiver will receive his just rewards with a new contract.

Sept 27 Special Report - If you're on the fence, or over it and on the dark side about the Giants and their 2017 prospects, you're not alone. The Giants lost by just three points on Sunday in Philadelphia, scoring 24 points in their best output since they scored 27 points in a win over Cleveland on Nov. 27, 2016.
With seconds to go, the Giants held a lead, the first time this year, and the defense held, seemingly just enough, following a terribly shanked punt by Brad Wing that sailed just 28 yards to the sidelines.
