Oct 10 The Giants late-game answer stands 5-foot-11 (maybe) and 245 pounds. Nikita Whitlock is the Giants' starting fullback. He's also a core special teams player and their new late-game defensive weapon.

It's great for the Giants that their run defense is leading the NFL, but unacceptable that their pass defense is dead last. While the defense has held opponents to 69.8 yards rushing per game, it has coughed up 316.3 yards per game passing.

The Giants find themselves at a crossroads in Week 5. They can either keep rolling after two straight wins, or they can completely fall apart just as they have in each of the past two seasons.

Colin Kaepernick has struggled this year during the 49ers' 1-3 start. But he leads the league in rushing yards by a quarterback, tied with Carolina's Cam Newton, but on fewer attempts. The Giants have to prepare for him to be a dual threat.

Oct 9 Monday will be a year to the day since Victor Cruz suffered a season-ending patella tendon tear in Philadelphia. With the Giants having a Monday night affair at those same Eagles scheduled for Oct. 19, he's circling that date on his calendar.
Of course, after sitting out every game for a year, and missing practice for the last six weeks, Cruz won't get picky about his return. Aside from performing exercises that continue to strengthen the knee, Cruz has been relatively inactive.

Being relentless is helping Giants' defense get job done. Rehired by Tom Coughlin after a resoundingly successful run with the Giants in 2007-08, which included a Super Bowl championship, the guy they call "Spags" is working more of his magic in running a far different defense than the one he left behind.

Oct 8 Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. says he will appeal the fine he received for his actions in the Giants' 24-10 win over the Buffalo Bills this past Sunday..
Beckham is going to have to learn to walk away. It's not cool; it's not macho, and it goes against every bit of the tough-guy football culture, but the 22-year-old has to do it anyway.

The Giants didn't find fault with the feisty way Beckham played against Rex Ryan's defense. Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Wednesday he wants Beckham to continue blocking hard.
Although the Bills complained about him, Beckham received strong support from the Giants. Beckham visited general manager Jerry Reese, who, Beckham said, told him, "Just keep doing your job, we love everything."

Oct 7 The staph infection that ended the season for Giants tight end Daniel Fells is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, a dangerous bacterial skin infection.

Multiple Bills players blasted Beckham to The Buffalo News on Tuesday, calling the star receiver a "prima donna" and accusing him of constant trash talk and throwing multiple punches in the Giants' 24-10 win over the Bills this past Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. .

The Giants will place four all-time greats in their Ring of Honor during halftime of Sunday night's showdown with the 49ers at MetLife Stadium.


Oct 6 Back in the summer, there were plenty of concerns about the worthiness - or lack thereof - of the offensive line. Fast forward to Sunday, when the Giants allowed just one sack to what arguably is the NFL's best defensive line.
The Giants have the struggling 49ers, injury-ravaged Cowboys and struggling Eagles as their next three opponents. The future is starting to look bright. Their next game against a team with a winning record likely won't be until mid-November when they play the Patriots.

The Giants have just lost their finest all-around tight end. Daniel Fells, who had been dealing with an ankle injury, was treated for the issue over the weekend. During that treatment, the club discovered he had a staph infection, which will require further treatment. He was immediately placed on I.R.
It is a significant loss to the Giants. Fells, 32, was the best blocking tight end on the roster, by a wide margin. He was also a reliable pass-catcher who earned the trust of Eli Manning. Fells only played in two games this season and had six receptions for 60 yards.

Former Giants
Dan Campbell was named interim head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Mostly a blocking tight end, Campbell played behind pass-catchers Pete Mitchell and Jeremy Shockey before leaving the Giants after four seasons.

On The Game: Game 4
Gamegirl - "The Giants offensive line handled the Bills pass rush pretty well and Eli Manning ended up with three touchdowns on the day. Eli didn't hang on to the ball that long and took only one sack when a safety caught him on a blitz."
Mikefan. -
"Rashad Jennings stole the show with his 51-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown and it couldn't have come at a better time. It was just the boost they needed in the fourth quarter to help kill any thoughts that they were going to blow this game."

Giants (1-2) vs Bills (2-1) Preview
Last Sunday the Bills were on the road playing in the Miami Dolphins home opener. It wasn't much fun for the home crowd as the Bills pushed their record to 2-1 with a commanding 41-14 win over the Dolphins.
In a Thursday night game at MetLife Stadium the Giants commanded the field from start to finish with their 32-21 win over the Washington Redskins. They were facing an 0-3 start, but came up strong in all areas.

Oct 4 Tom Coughlin just glared when the question was asked about the subject he didn't want to talk about. There are some things he knows are better off just left unsaid. After all, he knows Eli Manning hasn't thrown an interception all season. Why jinx it by talking about it now?

Rueben Randle knows what he's shown you. In his three-plus years on the Giants, he's alternately dominated (remember the 132-yard explosion in St. Louis last year?) and disappeared (eight games with less than 40 receiving yards last year).

Oct 3 Victor Cruz acknowledged Friday that he suffered a setback in his recovery from his strained left calf this week and added that he had a platelet-rich plasma therapy injection Thursday. Though PRP therapy generally takes weeks to work, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the team has no plans to put Cruz on injured reserve.
The veteran receiver won't travel with the team to Buffalo, but will be re-evaluated at the Giants' facility on Monday by team doctors. Until then, he'll avoid icing or wetting the area where he got the shot, just letting the blood go through the muscle to stimulate healing. And he'll hope.

The Giants could end up using Sunday's game to determine if the combination of Dwayne Harris and Geremy Davis can help pick up the slack for Cruz as long as he remains out or if they need to try and add an impact player at the position. Former Pro Bowler Wes Welker and former Giants first-round pick Hakeem Nicks worked out for the team earlier this week.
When the team parted ways with the drop-prone Preston Parker on Sept. 22, they did so thinking Victor Cruz would be back on the field for this Sunday's game in Buffalo against the Bills. So the Giants will go into their second straight game with just four healthy wideouts on their roster, and their No. 3 (Dwayne Harris) and No. 4 (Geremy Davis) receivers have just one catch for five yards between them so far in 2015. That is where veteran Wes Welker comes in to the mix.

Oct 2 Victor Cruz will not be available for the Giants on Sunday in Buffalo, coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday.Coughlin said there's no timetable for Cruz's return.
A calf injury had sidelined Cruz since mid-August, but he appeared ready to rejoin the team after several workouts on the side. On Wednesday, though, he was unable to get through the earliest drills of the practice.
Giants fans were going to see their two dynamic receivers, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr., back on the field together for the first time in nearly a year. Beckham has played less than two games alongside Cruz in his career.

Oct 1 Victor Cruz was convinced his return would happen this Sunday. So saying the Giants and their star wide receiver were blindsided by his latest setback would be an understatement.
What was expected to be a day of great uplift with the long-awaited arrival of Victor Cruz on the practice field instead devolved into a downer when Cruz pulled himself out early and suffered a setback in what he's dubbed 'The Return.'
Now, he is almost certain to sit out on Sunday after removing himself from a workout. Rookie teammate Geremy Davis said he approached Cruz on the practice field and that the veteran indicated he doesn't believe the situation is serious.

Sept 30 The studying began in mid-May, long before the Giants - or anyone - could guess that Rex Ryan's quarterback would be the scrambling Tyrod Taylor. They'll need to be prepared against the surprising Taylor, who's piloted the Bills to a 2-1 start. For five seasons under Perry Fewell, the Giants were a picture of ineptitude against the read-option attack.
The knock on the Bills heading into this season was that they put together a worthy team without a worthy quarterback, a familiar refrain for a Rex Ryan-coached outfit. They had EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Taylor, and there was no smart money on Taylor emerging as the starter. But he did.

The Giants brought in three well-known, but unemployed, pass catchers on Tuesday for workouts. But nothing more than that. Ex-Giant wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley and former Broncos and Patriots slot receiver Wes Welker all had tryouts with the Giants, but none signed contracts.

Sept 29 We may finally see the full-strength Giants on Sunday. The Giants are not complete just yet, but they hope to be by Sunday.
Others who have been sidelined with injuries, including, starters Robert Ayers Jr., Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Ereck Flowers, also participated in the abbreviated workout.

Tears, touchdowns? What to expect from Victor Cruz's return. What began with tears of anguish last Oct. 12, when he tore his right patellar tendon and was carted off the field at the Linc, may very well culminate in tears of joy Sunday in Buffalo when, if all goes as expected the rest of this week, Cruz finally begins his comeback.
Victor Cruz's appearance in a helmet and shoulder pads elicited more than a few reintroductions from teammates, a predictable price to pay for the 51-week injury layoff Cruz has endured. Obviously, the Giants are thrilled, and as Cruz bounced and smiled his way around the locker room Monday, his usual infectious energy was at full blast.

Sept 28 Victor Cruz makes it official: He will play vs. Buffalo Bills. Cruz has not played since suffering a season-ending patellar tendon in his right knee against the Eagles on Oct. 12, 2014.

Just who are these Giants? It's a question that 1-2 Big Blue will try to answer next Sunday when it visits Rex Ryan's Bills in Buffalo.

NFL News
The Steelers-Rams game in St. Louis was delayed after a pyrotechnics fire sprang out as the Rams were running onto the field on Sunday.

Sept 27 After a pair of devastating season-opening losses he said were "as tough as it gets," Giants president and CEO John Mara had no problem saying his team's win over the Redskins on Thursday night was a relief.

Ten reasons to be optimistic about the Giants. 1 - Greatly improved run defense. 2 - Winning turnover battle. 3 - Strong quarterback play. 4 - Help on the way. 5 - Odell Beckham Jr. is for real.

The Giants spotted the Cowboys two games in the standings in the first two weeks, but when the regular season ends Jan. 3, here's my prediction: The Giants will win the NFC East.

Meet the Giants' do-it-all secret weapon a coach dreams about. The Giants have not seen anything quite like Nikita Whitlock. It felt like the short-handed Giants were just trying to get out of the summer in one piece.

Sept 26 Special Report - It is probably not accurate - at any time - to use the word ebullient to describe Tom Coughlin's moods. But the head coach of the Giants almost reached that euphoric state Friday afternoon during a conference with the media, referencing the team's first victory of the season - a 32-21 success over Washington in which they did not lose a fourth-quarter lead.

It's been speculated for several weeks that Victor Cruz might make his season debut for the Giants in the Week 4 game next weekend. On Friday, Tom Coughlin formally announced that is the plan.
Coughlin relayed he received word from the Giants' medical staff that the plan is for Cruz to make his 2015 debut in game No. 4, Oct. 4 in Buffalo.

Giants (0-2) vs Redskins (1-1) Preview
Last Sunday the Redskins had a 17-0 lead over the the St. Louis Rams at halftime. They let that slip to seven points in the third quarter, but then kept the Rams scoreless while adding 7 more for a 24-10 win.
The Giants were up 20-10 in the fourth quarter against the Atlanta Falcons. Then they did about what they did the week before. They blew an opportunity for a touchdown and then gave up 14 points for a 24-20 loss.

Sept 24 This is the second consecutive season the Giants and Redskins faced each other in a Thursday night game and it was exactly one year ago (minus one day) that Kirk Cousins started at quarterback in place of injured Robert Griffin III and the Giants came away with four interceptions in a 45-14 rout at FedEx Field.

You can't talk about the Redskins team without mentioning the quarterback position. They've had 16 starting quarterbacks in the past 16 years.Just before this regular season started, Kirk Cousins was named by Jay Gruden to be the (current) starting quarterback. Gruden is the (current) head coach of the Redskins, and it's worth mentioning because in the past 16 years, the Redskins have had 8 head coaches, including a repeat performance by Joe Gibbs.

The highlight videos of great Giants defenses of old began playing way back in spring minicamp, Steve Spagnuolo's way of inspiring his young 'D,' showing off the hard-nosed legacy of a proud franchise. So far, this Giants defense has been nothing like those units.

Sept 23 Every loss, every mental mistake, every dropped pass, inches the Giants closer to what is starting to seem inevitable. It's no secret that in a "win or else" season, Tom Coughlin's the one on the hot seat. He's the one most likely to take the fall if everything goes wrong. And so far everything has gone wrong.
Eli Manning has been the focus of most of the criticism surrounding the winless Giants, but Preston Parker was a frequent target, too. The little-known receiver, who barely made the roster on the final cutdown day, dropped five passes in the first two games, including four that would have gone for first downs. And now he's gone.
Giants cut Preston Parker after five drops to start the season. Parker was the first casualty of the team's win-or-else campaign, cut due to his inability to make catches for an offense looking to fill the void left by injured receiver Victor Cruz.
Parker, a fourth-year pro, had five receptions for 43 yards in the first two games but will be remembered more for what he didn't catch. He had three crucial third-down drops in the 27-26 loss to the Cowboys, then two more drops - including one on fourth down that ended the game - against Atlanta.

Jon Beason's long absence from the Giants lineup looks just about over. The veteran middle linebacker, who hasn't played in almost a year because of injury, was a full participant in practice Tuesday and appears likely to make his 2015 debut Thursday night against the Redskins.
Victor Cruz ran on grass Tuesday for the first time since injuring his calf Aug. 19, raising hope that he'll be ready to make his debut in Week 4 against the Bills on Oct. 4. It seems the only thing holding Cruz back from a return this week is the schedule.

Sept 22 For years, he's been the bedrock of the Giants, the clutch franchise quarterback, finding ways to win even when everything else had gone wrong. And to Eli Manning, none of that has changed, even if his early performance in 2015 makes you think otherwise.
Giants' worst mistakes coming from Eli Manning. The most shocking part of Coughlin's message was not so much that mistakes are happening, but who is making the worst of them. Quarterback Eli Manning, the man who built a reputation on smarts and skills.

Tom Coughlin's reason to believe: Everyone else is a mess. As he prepared to speak to his battered Giants early Monday afternoon, he already knew one of his first talking points. He was going to take the players through a tour of the NFC East.
And you think the Giants have problems? Well, they do. But at least they're not alone. The entire NFC East is in such disarray after two weeks of games that even the team that is 2-0 with two victories in the division and standing atop the standings -- the Cowboys -- is facing major issues..

The Giants should be taken to task for the inadvertent freeze-out of Odell Beckham Jr. in the second half of Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Falcons, but the larger issue might be this: Where the heck is Rueben Randle?

On The Game: Game 2
Gamegirl - "Oops, I did it again. I played with your heart, got lost in the game'. Come on Eli Manning. What are you doing to me and a million other fans? Once again I felt good with the Giants having a nice lead going into the fourth quarter and once again Eli Manning let me down. Before I get into all that let me just say it was a thrill for anyone who was able to be at the stadium today. At halftime the Giants were celebrating the 25th Anniversary of winning Super Bowl XXV in 1990."
Mikefan. - "Come on Giants receivers, can't you hang onto the ball? They were targeted by Manning 30 times and completions totaled 17. Odell Beckham Jr., with coverage all over him, pulled in 7 out of 12 for 146 yards and 1 touchdown. The others totaled 58 yards with their 10 completions. By comparison the running backs were 10 out of 10 on Manning's passes for 88 yards. Maybe with the exception of Beckham, they should swap these two groups."

Giants (0-1) vs Falcons (1-0) Preview
Last Sunday the Giants had an opportunity to beat the Dallas Cowboys on the road in the season opener, but let it slip away. Some poor play calling on offense and time management gave the Cowboys a chance to stage a last minute comeback which they did, winning the game 27-26.
On Monday night the Atlanta Falcons held an impressive 20-3 halftime lead over the Philadelphia Eagles. They let the Eagles come back and were trailing in the fourth quarter. They managed to pull ahead 26-24 and when the Eagles missed on a field goal and threw an interception on their last two opportunities the Falcons had the win.

The Giants will honor one of their greatest teams on Sunday both before and during the home opener against the Falcons as they commemorate the 25th anniversary of the 1990 team's Super Bowl XXV win over the Buffalo Bills. Check out the rundown of the events planned for Sunday, like select players from the 1990 team will sign autographs at every entry gate from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Tom Coughlin knows his Giants can not suffer another embarrassing failure this week. Once they got past the agony and drama and the race between Tom Coughlin and Manning and McAdoo to accept all the blame, they were left with the ugly truth about what really happened that night.
The Giants are proud of their winning tradition. Their four Super Bowl victories match the Patriots for the most Vince Lombardi trophies since 1986. But lately the tradition has lived more on reputation than reality after three straight non-playoff seasons and missed playoffs in five of the past six years.

Victor Cruz won't play Sunday, but he expects to be back on the field for the Giants in the next two weeks. Cruz said his surgically repaired knee "feels great" and isn't an issue in his bid to get out on the field for the first time since tearing his patellar tendon last October in Philadelphia. Cruz's calf, on the other hand, has been a big concern.

Eli Manning is not a local radio star. He just gets paid like one. He earns somewhere around $250,000 per season, according to radio sources, for his weekly appearances that last a few minutes on WFAN. This is a mere pittance compared to the $84 million contract ($65 million guaranteed) he just signed with the Giants. Manning does not need the radio money. So, why does he bother doing the weekly spot? Why deal with the aggravation these sessions produce?

NFL admits it blew 2 calls that hurt Giants in the loss to Cowboys. Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartiewas called for pass interference on Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams in the third quarter. Tight end Daniel Fells was held on the infamous third-and-goal play late in the game, and a penalty should have been called, according to the report.
The admission of the two blown calls, which was first reported by the NFL Network, was largely meaningless, though, since the damage had already been done. And it can be argued that had the refs gotten either call right - most definitely the second won - the Giants would've won and would never have been in position to mess up the game in the end.

Preston Parker ruined three offensive series in the 27-26 loss with dropped passes on third down, at times doing more to stop the Giants than the Cowboys' defense. The last drop was a killer, as a deep pass from Eli Manning dropped in and out of Parker's hands on the Dallas 18-yard line, forcing a Giants punt.
