If there is any reason for optimism, it's the fact that there are only three undefeated teams in the conference - the Lions, Falcons and Panthers. "We've got to get the ball snapped", McAdoo told reporters. Today's big game comes from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey and has a scheduled start time of 8.30 p.m. ET.
Learning from them is one thing. His group allowed five sacks to a mediocre Lions defense, bringing the season total to eight. Has coach Ben McAdoo, a bright offensive mind, simply been too stubborn to change?
On a night when the New York Giants honored their 2007 Super Bowl championship team at halftime, the current Giants once again looked like chumps. If he doesn't, it'll be another long night for the defense which might still be good enough to get a W. My guess: Beckham doesn't play.
Is this a thing specifically in NY?
The problem here is that the Giants may not realistically have that much time. For a second week in a row, Marshall finished with just one reception.
McAdoo conceded that doing the same thing over and over again is "insanity".
"We're not going to panic", McAdoo said Tuesday afternoon. "We just have to execute, play better football".
"The minute you start talking about what you think you've gotten done in this league, you end up getting your ears kicked in", Caldwell said. "So, somebody's got to win a job or take a job to get a job". With 10 minutes remaining and down by 14, Manning chose to look short of the sticks on 4th-and-3, which resulted in a turnover on downs.
WR Odell Beckham Jr.is questionable for the Giants tonight, as he hurt his ankle, but might be good to play.
Eric Ebron ranked in the top 10 among tight ends previous year in catches (61) and yards (711), but he had just one touchdown.
"I've got to call a timeout or get it snapped", the veteran said.
Giants: at Philadelphia for Sunday afternoon game. "I got my 20-30 plays, or whatever it was, and just try to make the majority".
The Giants playoff hopes took a tremendous hit with their loss to Detroit on Monday Night Football. Pugh, the Giants' best lineman, replaced Hart, and Brett Jones came off the bench to replace Pugh at left guard.
Flowers has had a brutal start to his third season and was mostly non-competitive matched up with Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, yielding three of Detroit's five sacks of Manning as well as a quarterback hurry.
"That's something we'll look at and talk about", he said.
Down 7-0 early in the second quarter, the Giants responded sharply with an eight-play, 75-yard drive that was capped off by first-round pick Evan Engram's 19-yard touchdown catch. "So, it was a different approach defensively".
Coming into the season, the Giants were pretty easily diagnosable as a team strong in every aspect of the game but its O-line, with a big question mark at quarterback-based both on how much time Manning would have to work, and how much he has left at age 36.
