New York Giants


You wouldn’t know it from watching the New York Giants this season, but Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr. has been an elite passing combination. Now Beckham has an NFL record to prove it. With a deep strike down from Manning down the sideline for 51 yards in the third quarter Monday against the Atlanta Falcons, Beckham became the fastest receiver since the 1970 merger to eclipse 5,000 receiving yards.

John Mara, dressed in a crisp suit, dress shirt and red tie, stood up from his seat and tossed his chair in a fit of disgust. The New York Giants owner’s emotions had bubbled to the surface, culminating in a public display of uncontrolled anger and frustration. Mara’s press box theatrics are no secret around New York, though they’ve never warranted much attention.

Something has to give when the Atlanta Falcons' porous defense faces the New York Giants' sluggish offense on Monday night. The Falcons rank last in third-down percentage, second-worst in scoring average and third-worst in average yards allowed. New York struggles to sustain drives behind 37-year-old quarterback Eli Manning.

Odell Beckham Jr. is ready to do his part to get the New York Giants back on a winning path. "I'm ready to talk about the Atlanta Falcons," Beckham said. ... We win games together, we lose games together." With the Giants at 1-5 preparing for Monday Night Football in Atlanta, Beckham put himself on the spot by flinging arrows at teammates and the offense in general in a wide-ranging ESPN interview last week.

There are a lot of things Odell Beckham Jr. doesn't like these days. It starts off with losing and the New York Giants' 1-5 record. New York Giants co-owner John Mara saying earlier this week the NFL's highest -paid receiver needs to make more headlines on the field than off didn't draw much of a response.

Beckham, who made headlines after he left the field before half-time in the Giants' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6, was asked about some of the problems he has been having with dehydration and responded with an unusual answer. Coach Pat Shurmur was then asked if it was news to him that Beckham does not like water.

Hell, Peyton Manning couldn’t do much with this collection of table scraps. No matter what unfamiliar territory they journey into — like, you know, the playoff picture — you know that before long, they’re gonna remind you that they’ve got that godawful Jaguars ugliness just waiting to clamber its way out. Oh, and according to that countdown clock, Gruden has made about $100 since you started reading this article.

Rookie cornerback Grant Haley could not have picked a better time to be elevated from the practice squad to the New York Giants' roster. The Giants (1-5) are heading to Atlanta to play the Falcons (2-4) on Monday night. It's home for Haley and he is going to see the women who inspires him - his mother, Dr. Carla Neal-Haley.
