The Giants run game was very bad as Shane Vereen was the leading rusher with 28 yards on 6 carries.
Beckham's impact on the game was negligible, and the Giants clearly could have lost just as inefficiently without him.
The New York Giants struggled in Week 1, as they fell to the Dallas Cowboys to open the season. Losing to the Lions puts them three games behind in a potential wild-card battle between the two. "They had a good call for the play. That was obvious. I haven't seen it, so I guess I'll look at it". The Giants drop to 0-2 in the past four out of five seasons. Manning had another mediocre night. Ereck Flowers is atrocious at left tackle and is slowly but surely burning this offense to the ground.
We take a look at the five biggest plays from the Lions' 24-10 win over the Giants on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017.
Per Pro Football Focus, Flowers entered the season having surrendered 17 more quarterback pressures than any other offensive tackle over the past two years. "I expect to get the ball snapped".
Manning turned in a game effort by going 22 of 32 for 239 yards with a touchdown and interception.
Granted, Manning isn't to blame for all of the Giants' problems. "We got to get the ball snapped". It wasn't a coincidence that, when he was on the field, Big Blue moved the ball through the air easily; Beckham attracted the attention of Slay, creating mismatches closer to the hashes.
McAdoo did acknowledge that Flowers' struggles Monday were enough to cause the Giants to try providing blocking help on the edge as the game went along, but little seemed to work as NY went three-and-out four times and was 4-of-12 on third down. "Not going in the right direction enough, going backwards, not converting on third downs enough". Trailing 17-7 in the third quarter, the Giants lined up to go for it on 4th-and-goal from the 2-yard line. Once it hits zero they [the referees] look at the ball and look at the clock, usually it has to tick once it hits zero to get the ball snapped without it being a delay of game. It was the fifth-longest punt return in team history. Manning had his best game throwing the football in the playoff loss to Green Bay in the freezing cold, but he has not thrown it well so far this season.
"If you get tackled by a punter you can't be returning back there, so I didn't want to let that happen". "We get seven points there it changes the whole game". We've got to block better. We've got to do better. "We can't turn the ball over".
Listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis Thursday through Saturday, Beckham said earlier last week that he had been receiving round-the-clock treatment in hopes of suiting up against the Lions.
Brady (61,849 passing yards and 456 touchdown passes) and New Orleans quarterback DREW BREES (66,402 and 466) entered the game with a combined 128,251 passing yards and 922 touchdown passes.
