Giants offense is a no show, lose Monday night battle with Lions

After a 24-10 road victory against the New York Giants on Monday night, the Lions are 2-0 and Detroit Free Press writer Shawn Windsor wonders if it's actually time to start believing in this team. The Giants recovered on their own 35-yard line and seemed to finally be overcoming their slow start to the year. Manning was sacked five times and at least a couple of those were thanks to Flowers, a former Miami standout.

It is the ignorance of offseason moves by management to ignore adding depth let alone talent to the offensive line that is coming home to roost, a major reason why the Giants are 0-2.

EAST RUTHERFORD The Giants' 13 points are the franchise's fewest through the first two games of a season in 70 years, so yes, there are widespread offensive problems in the Meadowlands.

Beckham, who has made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three National Football League seasons, caught 101 passes for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2016. The NFL's highest-paid player left the New York Giants fans understanding why.

The meeting with the Falcons went down as a sure loss when playing the "schedule game" as soon as the schedule was released last April but now that the week of the game is here, it is looking like it will be a competitive game. Just stay positive, try to get healthy. Manning had another mediocre night.

"Sloppy quarterback play", McAdoo said brusquely of the delay of game call when the Giants were attempting to score on fourth-and-goal from the 2. What happens over there ... we've got to keep playing through it."We know the guys that we have in this locker room. We've got to play and feed off each other and we're not doing that right now and I've got to find a way to make that work".

Manning finished 22 of 32 for 239 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

"They're a good front four", Manning said.

"Because we have a veteran quarterback who has played a lot of football and I expect us to get the ball snapped".

The biggest missed opportunity for the Giants came in the fourth quarter.

Golden Tate, who got off to a bad start a year ago, had a big game against the Cardinals, and he got some help. "Not going in the right direction enough, going backward, not converting on third downs enough". "Any time there's a delay of game, it's on the quarterback and can't afford to not get it right there". The Lions look like they're on a mission and it looks like the Giants are completely lost and confused.

Agnew's punt return, the fifth-longest in team history, broke open the game.

Now New York, which went 11-5 last season and made the playoffs, needs to get its offense going in a hurry. "I think we all know Stafford and the strength that he has and the receivers". "We get seven points there it changes the whole game". "We can do a better job". The ball caromed into the air and everyone held their breath as it darted to the left and barely, just barely, slid behind the left upright ... good! "We wanted to be smart with him in his first game back".
