DeSean Jackson, Odell Beckham Jr. swap jerseys

Giants Brandon Marshall playing well below his'high standard

Manning says that all the Giants need to do is win one game to get the ball rolling. The field goal did however come off the leg of Nick Folk who missed two field goals and an extra point earlier in the game. "We have to go back and simplify what we're doing schematically and let these guys go out and showcase their ability". I think we play with a lot of swag in different areas.

Eli Manning and the offense have played better of late, topping 20 points each of the last two weeks. RB Paul Perkins sat out part of the second half with a rib injury. "We've just got to do it better". The giveaway in this game was when OJ Howard broke free with no one remotely near him for a 58 yard touchdown. However, he chose to sign with the Buccaneers instead of the Giants and the rest of the candidates for the opportunity to join one of the most up-and-coming offensive units in the league. He broke free through the middle and then up the right side with no Giants defender knowing where he was. Wayne Gallman led the G-Men with 42 rushing yards on 11 carries, while Odell Beckham Jr. logged team-highs of 7 catches for 90 yards in the loss. The rookie out of Clemson made his debut while celebrating his 23rd birthday.

The touchdown also broke a streak of 21 games without a 10-plus yard rushing touchdown for the Giants. However, in spite of his team's inauspicious record, quarterback Eli Manning recently told Mike Francesa of WFAN that he still thinks the Giants are a good team. Manning was not sacked once and Ereck Flowers showed some significant improvement. And the way the league has gotten, there's not as many dominant teams. But with 12 games left, perspective on the season can change quickly again with one win. Last week, he was called for pass interference penalties of 41 and 36 yards against the Eagles, both leading to touchdowns. "That's the only thing we can worry about".


That gets right to the heart of the problem for the Giants, who will host the 0-4 Chargers in what should be a desperate battle at the Meadowlands next Sunday.

The question with the Giants is no longer can this team make a playoff run, but rather how bad are things going to get?
