Victor Cruz missed the Giants' fourth straight victory, but the veteran wideout plans on being back for their bid at a fifth consecutive win.
That lead was in danger of collapsing going into the fourth quarter. To this point in the season while not being incredible they have done a good job and held opposing offenses in check for the most part.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes, including the game-winner to receiver Sterling Shepard as the Giants toppled the Cincinnati Bengals 21-20 at MetLife Stadium on Monday, November 14 (Tuesday Manila time). And their schedule over the next couple of weeks has the potential to see them return to the playoffs for the first time since 2011. He kept his offense on the field.
"We were in too many 3rd-and-longs and that hurt us". "I think he's fairly embarrassed about it, but we'll support him and welcome him when he gets back after serving his suspension". "It's a good football team and we felt like we needed to score touchdowns". I've heard it on third down before. Green knows that it falls squarely on the shoulders of the guys up front on the offensive line. When you have a quarterback who's won two rings before, the most dynamic deep-play threat in the game and a defense that can hold its own against high-gear offenses playing in a conference where the two best teams either start rookies at skill positions or had a 6-6 tie with the Cardinals, then why not?
In fairness to the Bengals, they've lost to the Steelers, Broncos, Cowboys, Patriots and Giants, who are a combined 32-14 this season. "I like seeing guys in their atmosphere", said Beckham, who was seen at several Cleveland Cavaliers playoff games watching LeBron James earlier this year.
"He is a great receiver, good hands, and nice route runner, " Jenkins said. "You're like, 'Ok, everyone, narrow your focus even more; this is a big, big play.' So that trust in us meant a lot and I'm glad we went out and did it". I blew that one.
Australia capitulates to lose second Test
In some ways, it was lucky for Smith that the match finished on a Tuesday before lunch, when the audience was far from peaking. South African captain Faf du Plessis has presided over his second series whitewash over Australia‚ but he's not done.
Victor Cruz won't play - and rookie gets his big chance
The Giants have a solid defense and confidence should be high as they've played well enough to win those three straight games. Gilberry, who signed with the Lions as a free agent in the offseason, has missed the last month with an abdominal injury.
Revamped Arkansas defense ready for tough test against LSU
In an effort to improve the rush defense, coach Bret Bielema and coordinator Robb Smith made a few lineup tweaks against Florida. LSU held The Boot for three straight years from 2011 through 2013 before lopsided, 17-0 and 31-14 losses the last two years.
"We're trying to figure out what we need to do to have these outcomes be different, and there's not one explanation for it", Dalton said.
The Giants do not have to look in front, look back or look anywhere but at themselves, because the sight in the mirror pleases them - especially the vision of their on-the-rise defense.
He did, and by admission, was ready for that redeeming moment.
It was that kind of night for Beckham, who had all the right moves and wasn't shy about using them against the Cincinnati Bengals. "I'm not the first read on that one but I knew there was a possibility that I was going to get that". The play calls we had down there I was comfortable with and confident in. "It was the first time I had been there and everyone took care of me". "I do not worry about shutting anyone down, I just worry about doing my job".
When Manning came to the sideline, McAdoo told him they were in four-down territory. It is a tuning point that perhaps could lead to bigger things.
Say what you want about the Bengals' postseason duds, but recognize that regular-season work has been their specialty.
