New York Giants


When looking at the New York Giants these days, there is not a lot to like. Pat Shurmur's team is riding a five-game losing streak and has fallen to 2-7. It's the same record the Giants had after nine games in his first year as coach.

A black cat somehow got on the field during the Cowboys-Giants Week 9 Monday Night Football game. Apparently, there are usually stray cats in and around MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The most exciting touchdown during the Week 9 Dallas Cowboys beatdown of the New York Giants wasn't on a pass from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, or Giants running back Saquon Barkley; no, the most exciting moment during Monday Night Football this week was when a black cat somehow appeared on the field—halting the game—and ran across, eventually scoring a touchdown.

The New York Giants' Monday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys had a purr-fect interlude, when a black cat charged onto the MetLife Stadium field. The rogue feline ran into the end zone in the second quarter, eliciting cheers from the crowd, before sprinting under a seating section as state troopers chased. Kevin Harlan earned praised for his witty commentary in the video, here: It's unclear exactly how the cat ended up on the field.

Cue the Halloween jokes — even if they're a few days late. The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants got an unexpected break during their “Monday Night Football” matchup when an uninvited visitor made its way into MetLife Stadium. Play stopped in the second quarter when a black cat showed up and made itself at home after arriving near midfield during a break in a Giants drive.

Odell Beckham Jr. might be gone, but that doesn't mean the New York Giants wide receiver corps has stopped making acrobatic, one-handed catches against the Dallas Cowboys. Golden Tate, Beckham's replacement at the Meadowlands, logged his own jaw-dropping grab on Monday against the Cowboys. Early in the second quarter, Tate basically levitated in the air to haul in a Daniel Jones pass with one hand and convert on third-and-14.

TOP PICKS Prescott will likely check in as the most popular MVP/Captain, especially on FanDuel - where you don't have to pay the multiplier for that spot. That's probably the right call for cash games, and you'll want exposure to Dak either way. The Giants have allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, and Prescott completed torched NYG for 405 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions earlier in the year.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins, completed 24 of 36 passes for 288 yards and three touchdown passes, two to rookie Preston Williams, and Miami got its first win of the season with a 26-18 victory over the New York Jets. Lamar Jackson, Ravens, was 17 of 23 for 163 yards and a touchdown and ran for 61 yards and two scores to lift Baltimore to a 37-20 win over previously undefeated New England. Philip Rivers, Chargers, was 21 of 28 for 294 yards to help Los Angeles to a 26-11 win over Green Bay.

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is still feeling the effects of a concussion and will not play Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys, the team announced Sunday. Shepard was cleared from concussion protocol on Friday. "He practiced fully this week and was limited with no contact the two weeks before that," coach Pat Shurmur said in a team statement.

The New York Giants have placed wide receiver Sterling Shepard back in the concussion protocol, ruling him out of their game against Dallas on Monday night. The Giants (2-6) made the announcement on Sunday afternoon about Shepard, who had just been cleared on Friday and deemed able to play against the NFC East-leading Cowboys (4-3). Shepard missed the past three games after suffering a concussion on Oct. 6 against Minnesota, his second such injury of the season after also experiencing symptoms after the season opener at Dallas.

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is coming back from his second concussion with greater knowledge about the problem. Shepard was cleared from the concussion protocol on Friday and coach Pat Shurmur said Saturday that the fourth-year pro will be available Monday night when the Giants (2-6) host the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys (4-3). ''I'm pretty excited,'' Shepard said Saturday after practice.
