The last time that the NY Giants scored over 20-points was in Week 12 previous year against the Browns.
The Lions, as they did in their opener last week against the Arizona Cardinals, got a solid all-around performance Monday with big plays in every phase of the game. NY was just 4-of-12 on third down in the contest. "There are no excuses, but we have to find a way to get better; we're not going to throw the baby out with the bath water". The Giants were facing third down just twice on the ten-play-drive. "We're not happy with the way the game went; there are a lot of things we can do better, not just playing the game, but also in how we approach the game, and we gotta learn from it". "We're going to be open and honest with our communication", McAdoo said.
"Yesterday was one of those unusual days where you get five, but I do think that our guys are coming along". For personnel, jobs are won in this league; they are not given away. I'll take the points, but I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit wins outright. No one feels sorry for us. The Giants' charismatic receiver has not seen any action since injuring his left ankle on August 21 in a preseason game.
It's still unclear as to whether Odell Beckham Jr. will play tonight or not-it may not be decided until 90 minutes before kickoff.
Ebron was Detroit's leading receiver, catching all five of his first-half pass targets for 42 yards and a touchdown.
For a second-straight week, the offensive line is the focal point of the Giants woes on offense.
Details for Monday night's game are below. Justin Pugh slid over from left guard to right tackle, and Brett Jones came in to play left guard. Detroit forced five sacks on the Giants offense and NY forced three sacks on the Lions offense.
"He had some good moments and some moments that weren't what we were looking for", McAdoo said of his quarterback, who finished 22-of-39 passing for 239 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Friends, the Giants' offense is bad. "So, it was a different approach defensively".
In his post-game press conference, McAdoo called out the 36-year-old quarterback and fourth-year center Weston Richburg when asked about what happened on the delay of game penalty the Giants incurred on fourth-and-goal from the Lions 2-yard line.
