Game 10 Preview Giants (2-7) Jets (1-7)
Last week the Jets started off their game in Miami with a touchdown drive. They had no more after that, as the Miami Dolphins treated their loyal fans to their first win of the season, 26-18.
The Giants failed to take advantage of opportunities that came their way in their Monday night match up with the Dallas Cowboys. Settling for field goals for most of their scoring, they lost 37-18.

Nov 10 Just a few hours before the draft in Nashville this past spring, the Jets posted a video on social media that showed some of their fans decked out in Sam Darnold jerseys. The caption? "Thank you, Giants!" The implication was that the Giants, who had the second pick in the previous draft but did not select Darnold in 2018, had made a mistake that the Jets capitalized on when they grabbed the quarterback with the third selection.

Are the Giants' Daniel Jones and Jets' Sam Darnold destined to become franchise quarterbacks? The jury is still very much out on that question, as they prepare to meet Sunday, for the first time in the regular season.

Nov 9 Darnold or Jones: Which quarterback has lived up to the hype so far? In the battle for New York football supremacy this weekend, the New York Giants (2-7) face off with their MetLife Stadium neighbor Sunday, the New York Jets (1-8).

Leonard Williams has been a Giant for just over a week, but he's already getting set to face his former squad. The former sixth overall pick of the Jets in the 2015 draft will suit up for his second game as a member of Big Blue on Sunday, with his former Jets teammates and coaches on the other sideline.

Nov 8 The Giants and Jets are a combined 3-14, one year after going a combined 9-23, one year after going a combined 8-24. That's a 20-61 record over the last 2 1/2 seasons, for a "winning" percentage of .246. So no, the Giants and Jets don't match up particularly well with the rest of the professional football world right now. But how do they match up with each other?

All week, defensive lineman Leonard Williams has been giving his new Giants teammates intel on the Jets' offensive linemen. Not so much blocking or schematic tendencies - because film study generally reveals those things - but more so the personalities of the Jets' linemen.

Nov 7 Giants on Pat Shurmur's ultimatum: 'It's make or break for all of us'. There is much riding on Sunday's game when the Giants (2-7) take on the Jets (1-7), particularly for Pat Shurmur, who will try to avoid losing his 19th game in his first 26 as head coach.

The Giants have a five-game losing streak, reeling at 2-7 through nine games for the second straight season. The Jets are 1-7, just lost a game to the previously winless and trying to lose Miami Dolphins, and every week seems to bring some new and bigger embarrassment to the Jets.

The Giants sent receiver Sterling Shepard to Pittsburgh for further testing after his concussion symptoms returned last week. There is a belief Shepard, who suffered two concussions in a 28-day span, could be shut down for the rest of the season.

Nov 6 Rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker said he didn't know what went wrong -- or whom to blame -- for Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper breaking wide open on a 45-yard touchdown with 7:56 remaining in Monday night's 37-18 loss at MetLife Stadium.

The black cat that helped put the jinx on the Giants during "Monday Night Football" wasn't just a random trespasser - it was part of a colony of as many as 300 feral felines that call MetLife Stadium home.

Game 9 Preview Giants (2-6) Cowboys (4-3)
The Cowboys were on their bye last week, after coming off a 37-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles the week earlier. Last week the Giants stayed close in their game in Detroit. They tried to overcome a mixture of good and bad plays, but ended up losing to the Lions 31-26.

Nov 4 The Giants will not be whole for Monday night's game against the Cowboys and the availability of wide receiver Sterling Shepard for the remainder of the season was thrust into peril Sunday with the shocking news that Shepard is back in the concussion protocol.

Nov 3 Jabrill Peppers faced a near-impossible task coming to the Giants. He replaced the team's best players on each side of the ball, arriving as the centerpiece of the Odell Beckham Jr. trade, and wearing the same number and playing the same safety position as Landon Collins.

Will Daniel Jones over Eli Manning be difference for Giants in Week 9 vs. Dallas Cowboys? Through six starts, Jones has completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,466 yards with 10 touchdowns and two rushing scores. He also leads the league in turnovers.

Nov 2 Dave Gettleman wants Leonard Williams on Giants for long-term. "Our goal is to sign him long-term," Gettleman said during a controlled in-house interview that was emailed to season-ticket holders and published on
Dave Gettleman's decision this week to bring defensive lineman Leonard Williams to the Giants can be explained by one of the general manager's core philosophies. "Big men," Gettleman said, "allow you to compete." Williams is big. He is a 6-5, 302-pound man who is a roadblock for opposing running backs and an interior tormentor to quarterbacks.

Nov 1 Daniel Jones will be the first Giants quarterback other than Eli Manning to start a game vs. Dallas since Oct. 10, 2004, when Kurt Warner led the team to a 26-10 victory in Texas Stadium.

Sam Beal is counting down days to his NFL debut. If the Giants do decide to activate Beal this week, he would have a chance to make his NFL debut on Monday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys.

Oct 31 Sterling Shepard's next step forward will take him off the sidelines and into the huddle. The Giants' top wide receiver reached Step 5 of the five-step NFL-sanctioned protocol for returning from a concussion.

Giants say 'special' duo of Leonard Williams, Dexter Lawrence will 'be hard to stop'. How bright could this pair's future be?
Williams said his transition to James Bettcher's defense should be just as efficient, because it is comparable to the system he played in with the Jets under Todd Bowles.

Oct 30 He knew it could happen but Leonard Williams admitted he was "a little bit shocked" when he heard the Jets - the team that made him the sixth pick in the 2015 NFL Draft - sent him to the Giants.
The team announced it has acquired lineman Leonard Williams, the sixth overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, in a trade with the Jets, who will receive a 2020 third-round selection and a 2021 fifth round selection that could become a fourth.

Oct 29 Special Report - It is historic, this first-ever trade between the Giants and Jets (although a deal was agreed to in 1983 before it was called off at the last minute). That almost-trade involved the Jets sending a draft pick to the Giants for a center named Chris Foote, but the deal was nullified less than a week later. But this one counts.
The Giants acquired defensive end Leonard Williams from the Jets in exchange for a third-round draft choice in 2020 and a fifth in 2021. Included in the details is this: The Jets will pay $4 million of Williams' remaining $6 million salary this season.

Dave Gettleman is risking Giants ridicule with Leonard the Williams deal. This is a win for the Jets. This is a gamble, and an expensive gamble, for the Giants.
The Giants obviously think Williams has potential. They're going nowhere this season, at 2-6, so it makes no sense to trade a third-rounder and fifth-rounder for a half-year rental player.

Oct 28 Giants lose to the Lions 31-26.

Gamegirl ..."The Giants got off to a slow start and couldn't catch up..."
Mikefan ..."So far we continue to see some good, some bad as the Giants continue to struggle along..."

Game 8 Preview Giants (2-5) Lions (2-3-1)
Last Sunday, just before the first half ended, the Detroit Lions scored a touchdown to tie the game with the Minnesota Vikings. In the second half, they couldn't keep up the pace and lost to the Vikings 42-30.
The Giants trailed the entire time they played with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. On their last drive of the game they had the opportunity to pull it out, but executed poorly and lost 27-21.

Oct 27 NFL trade rumors: These 6 Giants could be gone after Sunday's game vs. Lions. Coach Pat Shurmur will try to keep the Giants focused on Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions (and the rest of the season), knowing the roster could look dramatically different in 72 hours.

Oct 26 Janoris Jenkins wants to know where he'll be playing next week. For a second straight trade deadline, though, it is not just rumors that Jenkins could be traded. Sports Illustrated reported Thursday that Jenkins has been "shopped around some" by the Giants.

Golden Tate never wanted to leave Detroit; Now he returns with NY Giants seeking validation. Golden Tate wanted to be with the Detroit Lions for the rest of his career. And he anticipated that would happen, until all of a sudden he wasn't anymore.

Oct 25 Pat Shurmur had the chance to protect Daniel Jones from blame after he was sacked eight times on Sunday in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Shurmur chose not to.

Giants season has been a cruel tease for Wayne Gallman. Wayne Gallman waited almost two years for an opportunity that lasted five quarters. Now? Who knows when or if he will get another chance with the Giants.

Saquon Barkley excited to face Damon Harrison. When the Giants play the Detroit Lions in Ford Field, Barkley will run into a defensive front that is anchored by his former teammate, Damon "Snacks" Harrison.

Oct 24 With the deadline six days away, NFL sources weigh in on the Giants' few tradeable assets. With a season going nowhere and the trading deadline less than a week away, nothing with Giants GM Dave Gettleman can be ruled out.

As Tuesday's NFL trade deadline approaches, left tackle Nate Solder arguably is the team's most moveable asset. The Browns reportedly are targeting the Giants - particularly Solder - for offensive line help. Solder, who comes from the Bill Belichick school of blocking out distractions, had not heard the speculation when approached at his locker after practice.

Deone Bucannon signed Tuesday with the Giants and is expected to quickly compete for a starting inside linebacker position in the 3-4 base defense and provide much-needed relief in the nickel package. The Giants had safety Jabrill Peppers moving around to pick up slack.

Oct 23 Deone Bucannon and James Bettcher are back together. Bucannon played a hybrid safety/linebacker role for the Cardinals when Bettcher was the team's defensive coordinator from 2015 to 2017. Bettcher is now doing the same job for the Giants and the team announced Bucannon's signing on Tuesday.

Former Giants
Odell Beckham Jr. is at odds with the NFL again, this time after the league accused him of yet another wardrobe malfunction.

Oct 22 If you are a Giants fan, it is fair for you to wonder whether Pat Shurmur is the right coach to lead you out of this desert of despair. Shurmur isn.t on the hot seat just yet, but his mandate now is threefold: Win some damn games, keep the locker room unified and, most of all, develop Daniel Jones.

Dave Gettleman vowed to rebuild the Giants. offensive line. Through 2 offseasons it has been a colossal failure. Dominance along the line of scrimmage is the backbone to a competitive football team, and it is something that the Giants have lacked for the better part of eight seasons since the red and blue confetti fell at the conclusion of Super Bowl XLVI.

Oct 21 Giants lose to the Cardinals 27-21.

Gamegirl ..."The Giants had an extra few days to prepare for this game, but it didn't help..."

Game 7 Preview Giants (2-4) Cardinals (2-3-1)
Last Sunday, the Falcons and Cardinals battled it out in Arizona. Kyler Murray passed for 340 yards and 3 touchdowns, and the team had 102 rushing yards with 1 touchdown. Atlanta had 341 yards, with Matt Ryan throwing 4 touchdowns, and his team rushing for 103 yards. It was all as close as the final score, which had the Cardinals winning 34-33.
The Giants put up a good fight after traveling to New England on a short week for a Thursday night game. Both teams could have played better, and the Giants held their own up until the third quarter. Trailing by seven points in the third quarter, a fumble by the Giants gave the Patriots an easy touchdown. The Giants couldn't recover, and ended up losing the game 35-14.

Oct 20 David Mayo is the blossoming defensive stud the Giants didn't see coming. Bring up David Mayo's name and the Giants will rave about his smarts, his desire and how seamlessly he has fit on the team. He signed a two-year contract with the 49ers in the offseason. He moved his family to the Bay Area. Then, on Aug. 31, he was cut.

Oct 19 This is a line-of-demarcation game for the Giants. They'll play the Cardinals on Sunday at MetLife Stadium as close to full strength as they've been in weeks, with running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram back from injuries.

Oct 18 Giants set to unleash 'J.Y.D.' Markus Golden on his old team. James Bettcher is a main reason why Golden signed a one-year, $3.75 million deal with the Giants. Bettcher downplayed any emotion over playing his former team and mentioned the fond memories in Arizona. It doesn't mean he doesn't want bragging rights.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray getting sacked repeatedly early-on this season was a point of discussion. Whose fault was that? The debate often centered around whether to blame the offensive line for giving up those sacks, or whether the onus was on Murray to throw the ball away before getting hit.

Oct 17 Remember when Giants general manager Dave Gettleman insisted that he had a plan to fix what ailed the Giants? The critics had their doubts, and in fact, some even mocked the Giants 68-year old general manager for claiming he had a plan but refusing to divulge ahead of time what that plan was. But as the 2019 season continues to unfold, Gettleman's plan has slowly revealed itself.

Former Giants
Justin Pugh's emotions as he prepares for first game against Giants.

Oct 16 Rookies get compared, especially when they meet up in the same game, and that is simply the long and short of it. The long of it for the Giants is Daniel Jones, a strapping 6-foot-5 quarterback navigating his way through his first NFL season. The short of it is Kyler Murray, a mighty mite 5-foot-10 quarterback making his way through his debut season with the Cardinals.

Oct 15 Special Report - The Giants got a little help from their friends Sunday when the New York Jets, with whom they share a stadium, beat the Dallas Cowboys. What that did was leave the Giants, at 2-4, just one game behind the Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, who are 3-3. And by no stretch are the Cowboys and Giants friends, but the Dallas failure to beat one of the worst teams in the NFL did provide a welcome boost to Pat Shurmur's team.
"Yeah, I watched a lot of football Sunday," said Shurmur, whose team, of course, played (and lost badly, but didn't play badly) to the New England Patriots last Thursday night. "But mostly, I watched Arizona. We play them Sunday (at MetLife Stadium). But I did get to see some of the other games, too." If the Giants are actually going to be part of some race in the NFC East to decide the best among a handful of mediocre teams, at least they figure to come into Sunday's game with more of their offensive weapons than previously thought.

Oct 14 The NFC East isn't exactly running away from the Giants. Even after Thursday night's 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots, the Giants have plenty to be optimistic about after the Eagles and Dallas Cowboys lost Sunday afternoon.

NFC East News
Cowboys - Panic time! Dallas Cowboys playing for survival after loss to lowly NY Jets.
Eagles - Loss to Vikings, it's hard to fault Doug Pederson's fourth down calls.
Redskins - Barely hold on against Dolphins for first win of season.

Oct 13 For a few possessions, Tom Brady had to be having Super Bowl flashbacks. He dropped back to pass and saw nothing but white Giants jerseys in his face. Instead of Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora, it was Markus Golden and Lorenzo Carter.

The Giants hired coach Pat Shurmur last year largely so he could mold quarterback Eli Manning's replacement. But if Shurmur doesn't get enough next season out of that replacement, Daniel Jones, he could be finished with the Giants, after just three seasons.

Oct 12 The Giants gave a superhuman defensive effort Thursday night (no matter the misleading final score) in a game nobody expected to be competitive for even a half. The Giants entered Gillette Stadium as 17-point underdogs, the largest number they faced since at least 1980.

So, how do we measure this? What are we to make of the Giants loss to the Patriots on Thursday night at Gillette Stadium as it pertains to how they'll do going forward? Their defense, indeed, played well, disrupting Tom Brady, who was sacked three times and intercepted once, and generally preventing him from finding a rhythm for most of the night.

Game 6 Preview Giants (2-3) Patriots (5-0)
Last Sunday, after allowing the Redskins to take an early first quarter lead, the Patriots got back on track. They gave up no more points and went on to win 33-7, almost an exact reflection of their average scoring over these first five games.
Things did not go well for the Giants last week in their game with the Minnesota Vikings. They lost the game 28-10, and their second leading running back, Wayne Gallman, was injured as well.

Oct 10 The Giants are 17-point underdogs and won't have three critical offensive weapons against the NFL's best defense. And Jones will be making his fourth career start against Tom Brady, who is 117-19 in regular season home games. Jones will need a huge showing from wide receiver Golden Tate and the Giants' full-strength defense in order to even keep this game close.

Oct 9 Though Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram may miss Thursday night's game, and Sterling Shepard and Wayne Gallman will be out as they deal with concussions, it looks as if Big Blue will get inside linebackers Alec Ogletree and Tae Davis back. Both practiced fully Tuesday after missing each of the last two games.

Oct 8 The Giants could be without wide receiver Sterling Shepard for several weeks, after he suffered his second concussion in five weeks Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Options for Giants at WR after Sterling Shepard goes down with another concussion Expect the Giants to look at familiar faces and guys already on the roster.
