New York Giants Try, Fail

The Giants just announced star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will play in tonight's Monday Night Football matchup against the Lions.

"We put this game on me", said Giants coach Ben McAdoo, who saw his team flop not just on special teams but on offense and defense as well while falling to 0-2.

Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who was active for this game after recovering from an ankle injury, had a quiet game, finishing with four catches for 34 yards.

The New York Giants (0-1) are coming from a 19-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.

That was more than enough evidence that Beckham was good to go for the Giants.

Detroit defensive end Ezekiel Ansah blew past Ereck Flowers, the Giants' overmatched left tackle, for his third sack of the game. "However, Detroit gained substantially more yards thru the air with 285 (7.0 yards per pass), while NY managed only 198 yards (5.2 ypp)".

It has been six years since the Lions have started 2-0, and a long time since they've done it by beating a highly regarded team on the road. He was injured during the Giants' second preseason game, and he's lucky it wasn't worse.

Beckham is dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out of a Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. REALLY?!?! There have been some lucky bounces in the history of the kicking game in football, but that right there is one of the luckiest that you will ever see. That's roughly a 3.0 yard average for both teams.

Last season though, NY managed to claim a solid 17-6 victory over the Lions.

While he doesn't look like much of a runner, the Giants said that Stafford knows how to extend plays. The Lions found themselves in rather rare territory, at least for them lately, having the lead in the fourth quarter. In the showdown previous year, the Giants had 114 yards on 32 carries while the Lions had just 56 yards on 19 carries.

The downfall of the game - and very possibly the Giants' season - began with the Giants, down 17-10 early in the fourth quarter, making a significant move to tie the game.

"I've got to call a timeout or get it snapped", the quarterback said.

Now New York, which went 11-5 last season and made the playoffs, needs to get its offense going in a hurry.

The Giants' defense was about the Lions. At this point last week, they didn't think he would play.
