New York Giants


New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has had his injured quad examined by a specialist and his status for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans is uncertain. Beckham went to The Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan on Thursday and returned to the Giants' facility after getting the second opinion. Beckham was hurt when he was leg whipped on the final play of the Giants' loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia on Nov. 25.

Beckham believes divine plan leads to playoffs Beckham remembered back to when the Giants were 1-7 and he said he felt like the team would win out. It wasn’t me just throwing those words around,” he said. The team is 4-1 since then and with three weeks to play Beckham still thinks the Giants will get into the playoffs at 8-8.

Davis Webb didn’t get a chance to prove himself in a regular season game with the New York Giants last year after being a third round pick of the team the previous April. He has yet to get a chance to play in a regular season game yet with the New York Jets either after the Jets signed him to their practice squad after his release from the Giants at the end of training camp. Josh McCown was given the chance to make three starts in place of an injured Sam Darnold over the last month.

The New York Giants are making life easier for Eli Manning since the bye week. After opening with a 1-7 record, Pat Shurmur's team has won four of five by doing all the little things that make a quarterback look good. The offensive line, which was much maligned before the bye, has been reshaped and is protecting the two-time Super Bowl MVP better while opening holes for sensational rookie halfback Saquon Barkley to show his skills.

Coming off his best game running the ball, Saquon Barkley unveiled a few goals for the final three weeks of the regular season for the New York Giants. Leading the NFL in rushing either this year or down the road is high on his wish list, and so is greatness. There is little doubt Barkley is on the verge of greatness after 13 games, but the fact the humble 21-year-old mentioned it might raise some eyebrows.

Washington quarterback Josh Johnson wanted to learn his new teammates, so he clicked on the video game console. After Washington’s 40-16 loss to the New York Giants, quarterback Josh Johnson told reporters that he played ‘Madden’ to help him learn his teammates’ names. Washington is the 12th team Johnson has spent time with since he was drafted in 2008, so he certainly has a lot of experience learning on the fly.

If you’re still one of the people – and we assume it’s an ever-shrinking group – that believes the New York Giants shouldn’t have used the No. 2 pick in this year’s drafted on running back Saquon Barkley and should have taken a quarterback instead, let us give you more evidence that the Giants made a sound pick. The Giants were already up 10-0 midway through the second quarter thanks in large part to a Mark Sanchez pick-six in the first quarter, and the defense forced a three-and-out that meant New York had a fresh set of downs from their own 22. Eli Manning handed the ball to Barkley to his right side, but Barkley immediately cut left, took advantage of great blocking from his teammates, and ran away from the defense on his way to a 78-yard touchdown.

Mark Sanchez is known for making bad plays. When Washington was up against its own goal line late in the first quarter, Sanchez attempted what looked like a short pass to give Washington some breathing room. Sanchez went 6-of-14 for 38 yards, was sacked five times and had a QB rating of 10.7 before he was yanked with the Redskins trailing 40-0.

Current contract situation: Manning is in the third year of a four-year, $84 million deal signed in 2015. All eyes are on next year—the final year of Manning’s deal—which the Giants can get out of for a mere $6.2 million. Despite Manning’s relative affordability, you have to think of him like a home you’ve lived in for years.
