Oct 27 Giants safety Jabrill Peppers' season is over after he suffered ankle and knee injuries Sunday in a victory over the Carolina Panthers. Peppers ruptured the ACL in his right knee in the third quarter of the 25-3 victory. He also suffered a high ankle sprain and was placed on injured reserve. He's now the third Giants captain to land on season-ending injured reserve this season, joining offensive lineman Nick Gates and middle linebacker Blake Martinez. Another captain, running back Saquon Barkley, has also missed a pair of games as the team has been ravaged by injuries in recent weeks.
Oct 26 A week ago, Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams expressed his frustration with booing fans. On Sunday, the Giants turned those boos into cheers with a dominating 25-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers led by Daniel Jones and a swarming defense. Williams, himself, played particularly well, recording six tackles (one solo), three QB hits and 1.5 sacks.Oct 25 Giants win over the Panthers 25-3

Oct 23 The key for the Giants on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers clearly will be to get to Sam Darnold with their pass rush. If only they could. Six games into this ugly season, there's no reason at all to assume they will, because the Giants have barely gotten to any of the quarterbacks they've faced all year long. They rank 27th in the league with a paltry 10 sacks. They're near the bottom in quarterback pressures too, despite blitzing nearly 30 percent of the time. It's no wonder that every opposing quarterback seems to pick their defense apart.
Oct 21 Giants' crazy rash of injuries making evaluation tough in advance of potential rebuild. When they take the field on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers they will be without five of their 11 projected starters on offense, including three of five along the offensive line. They're also missing their starting middle linebacker, their first-round pick, and a sizable contingent of players who were supposed to provide depth. In other words, the team the world will see isn't really the one they built. How is the front office - whoever is running it during the offseason - supposed to judge that?
Oct 20 The Giants' unraveling season absorbed another blow Tuesday as the club placed offensive tackle Andrew Thomas on injured reserve. Thomas missed Week 5 with a left foot injury, then returned for a Week 6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, only to exit in the second quarter with a right ankle injury. Thomas will miss a minimum of three games under NFL rules governing players placed on injured reserve after Sept. 1.
Oct 19 Special
Report - Are the LA Rams as good as they looked Sunday? Yes, Are the Giants
as bad as they looked Sunday? Yes, And so the team in blue fell to a 1-5 record,
making it all too easy for the visitors to rise to 5-1, and after scoring the
first three points of the game, head coach Joe Judge's guys gave up the next 38
points. Honest, that is not a typographical error. The Giants' defense surrendered
38 consecutive points. Isn't anybody embarrassed by this?

Oct 16 Daniel Jones is on track to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. New York Giants coach Joe Judge told reporters Friday that Jones was a full participant in practice, and it "appears" the QB will be able to play after suffering a concussion in Week 5. Jones was officially removed from the injury report later Friday. Jones had to be fully cleared by an independent neurologist to suit up against the Rams.
Oct 15 For all the issues and injuries they have on offense, it's Patrick Graham's defense that's killing the Giants this season. And they're really starting to make last year's revival look like something of a fluke. Why? That's a good question. Graham, who has at times this season sounded encouraged and hopeful, has now given into his anger while he appears to be desperately searching for what's gone wrong.
Oct 14 Daniel Jones 'on track'. Giants confident in backup Mike Glennon. With the game four days away, Joe Judge said Jones could potentially play on Sunday. But the decision might not be Judge's to make. The NFL very strictly monitors players who have suffered a concussion, as Jones did in the second quarter of the Giants' 44-20 loss in AT&T Stadium. If an independent neurological consultant deems Jones unfit to play, he will not be in uniform against the Rams.
Oct 12 The Giants left Dallas with a 44-20 loss, a 1-4 record and their best players on the shelf potentially for at least a few games. It was truly a disaster in Dallas and there's not too many positives to take away from it outside of Kadarius Toney's monster performance.Oct 11 Giants lose to the Cowboys 44-20

Oct 9 The last time the Cowboys played the Giants, it ended with a 23-19 loss for Dallas that officially ended their season while also snapping a three-game winning streak. The last time the Cowboys played the Giants at AT&T Stadium, Dak Prescott got injured and effectively ended the Cowboys' season despite winning the actual game. But Dak is back, and so are the Cowboys. They're on another three-game winning streak.
Oct 8 Jason Garrett has spent his entire career in football working alongside great quarterbacks. As a player in the league, Garrett shared a locker room with Troy Aikman and Kerry Collins. Becoming a coach, he helped develop the careers of Tony Romo and Dak Prescott. Now as offensive coordinator for the Giants, Garrett's latest quarterback project will be on display Sunday at Dallas, where Garrett called home for seven years as a player and 13 years as a coach, including a decade as head coach.
Oct 7 Daniel Jones named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Arguably the best start of Daniel Jones' career was also held in high esteem across NFL. The league announced Wednesday that Jones was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after leading the Giants' 27-21 overtime win Sunday at the Saints. Jones completed 28 of 40 pass attempts for a career-high 402 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. His QB rating was 108.5, and he also rushed four times for 27 yards.
Oct 5 In his Giants' debut, John Ross made a point to prove his game isn't solely defined by speed. Ross exploited the Saints' defense not only with a 52-yard catch from Daniel Jones that, while initially called a touchdown reception, was later ruled a fumble recovery by Ross in the end zone when he lost the ball as he crossed the goal line. He finished with three receptions for 77 yards, including two catches in overtime of 17 and 8 yards, both on intermediate routes, both of which went for first downs.Oct 4 Giants win over the Saints 27-21

Oct 2 The Giants made the unsurprising announcement that three players hurt last week against Atlanta will not play Sunday against the Saints in New Orleans. Wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton each strained hamstrings and guard Ben Bredeson injured his hand. Coach Joe Judge did not announce who will start at left guard. The candidates are Matt Skura and Wes Martin, either of whom would make his Giants debut.
Oct 1 Giants bringing in Isaiah Wilson shows 'culture' hypocrisy, but it won't matter if they win It's not the first time the Giants have brought in a player with a troubled past. There is no theoretical harm to the Giants' decision to sign Isaiah Wilson to their practice squad. Whatever issues the 22-year-old has aren't likely to infect the rest of the roster. If he steps out of line, he'll likely be cut in an instant, having cost the Giants basically nothing at all. And who knows, maybe it'll even work out?
Sep 30 Searching for a Giants win in the next seven games. Right now, looking through the prism of an 0-3 start, the Eagles look like the next logical time the Giants will not only have a shot to win, but will likely be favored. That's seven games from now. Will we really be looking at an 0-10 Giants record on Thanksgiving Day?
Sep 29 Left guard Ben Bredeson has a hand injury that could shake up the Giants' offensive line for a fourth straight game to start their spiraling season. The Giants signed Wes Martin off Washington's practice squad on Monday as insurance. On Tuesday, the Giants moved all the way up to No. 1 in the NFL's waiver order, since they are dead last at 32nd in the league's overall standings through three weeks. Prior to Tuesday, the waiver order had been based on the NFL's 2020 standings, so the Giants were No. 11 through the season's first three weeks. But now they have first crack at players cut by other teams who are waiver eligible for the following 24 hours. This is no small development for a Giants team constantly seeking upgrades all over the roster.
Sep 28 The Saints are back in New Orleans and getting ready for their home opener Sunday against the New York Giants at the Caesars Superdome. And what a long, strange trip it's been to get to this point. The Saints were forced to evacuate New Orleans before Hurricane Ida made landfall more than four weeks ago as a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained wins of 150 mph. As for the Superdome, officials insist it will be ready for Sunday's game despite last week's fire which burned through a part of the roof.Sep 27 Giants lose to the Falcons 17-14

Sep 25 Eli Manning knew it was time to retire when the losing and daily grind started to take its toll on him physically and mentally. While Manning had many fond memories, the latter years of his career played a prominent role in his deciding to call it quits.
Sep 24 The New York Giants will retire Eli Manning's No. 10 jersey Sunday when the team hosts the Atlanta Falcons, almost two years after Manning called it a career. Manning played 16 seasons for the Giants, from 2004 to 2019, getting an opportunity to start in place of veteran, future Hall of Famer Kurt Warner and later relinquishing the job to Daniel Jones. The two-time Super Bowl champion and Super Bowl MVP was asked Thursday about his legacy and what he would want to be remembered for the most.
