Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, LeSean McCoy had a season-high 149 yards rushing and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants 27-0 on Sunday night for their first shutout in 18 years.
The New York Giants unleashed their newest weapon, Odell Beckham, Jr., and the rookie speedster was certainly worth the wait. Beckham caught his first NFL pass, as well as his first NFL touchdown, and provided a much-needed offensive lift. After a mediocre first half, the Giants’ defense clamped down on Matt Ryan and company, and New York won going away, 30-20, at MetLife Stadium.
The New York Giants have certainly not seen a return on their investment in Odell Beckham, Jr. Beckham, selected 12th overall in the May NFL draft from LSU, has not played in a game this season, something that he hopes changes this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
This Week 4 NFC East game felt like a must-win for both teams. The Giants played like it, dominating in a 45-14 win. The Redskins looked overmatched.
The New York Giants traveled to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Redskins in their first NFC East contest of the 2014 NFL season. The prime time affair turned into a Larry Donnell coming out party, as the young tight end caught three touchdown passes in a 45-14 dismantling of the Redskins at FedEx Field.
Larry Donnell caught three of Eli Manning’s four touchdown passes, and the New York Giants moved to .500 with a 45-14 victory over the Washington Redskins on Thursday night.
The key offensive players for the New York Giants finally showed up, and the G-men rode the stellar efforts of Rashad Jennings, Victor Cruz and Eli Manning in their 30-17 triumph over the Houston Texans. The Giants moved to 1-2 on the season, while the Texans dropped to 2-1.
The 2014 season is beginning like a repeat of the 2013 campaign for the New York Football Giants. Even with Arizona starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined with a bad shoulder, the G-men could not take advantage of backup Drew Stanton seeing his first action since 2010 and handed the Cardinals a 25-14 victory at the Meadowlands.
Victor Cruz has been a productive member of the New York Giants’ offense for four years now. In his first three seasons in the league, he averaged over 1,000 yards receiving each year. But as his statistics have declined, so has his patience. Cruz thinks that more targets by Eli Manning will turn into more production for him.
The New York Giants were doomed for failure in 2013 by starting the season with an 0-6 record. In 2014, there are plenty of new faces in the fold, but Big Blue once again laid an egg on opening day, losing to Detroit 35-14 in a Monday Night Football dud.
