Stafford came out firing and had two touchdown passes in the first half, but it was the Lions' sometimes-stubborn commitment to the run that kept NY off balance. I definitely made some mistakes. "There are no excuses, but we have to find a way to get better; we're not going to throw the baby out with the bath water". He was not facing the best left tackle in the National Football League, but great players should expose the weaknesses of their opponent. That hit just pissed me off, and I didn't feel like celebrating. Then again, most National Football League coaches don't know the joys of coaching Eli Manning, who does this kind of stuff all the time. It was still a good game.

"Did I single him out?" He went 7-of-8 for 122 yards and two touchdowns against Arizona in the fourth quarter while on his way to a flawless passer rating in the final frame. The pair had a head-to-head exchange before teammates intervened.
"And with that being said, that's what I'm going to do". "He may have said some other things, but it's cool". Both his touchdown passes came on third-and-long plays in the first half and gave his team a 17-7 halftime lead. Usually the clock goes from 3-2-1-0. He keeps defenses on the back foot, and he certainly brings something to the game that no-one else in this Giants' roster can. "I don't like losing - one of my pet peeves".
There were moments of hope, where the Giants seemed ready to right the ship after last week's embarrassing loss at the Dallas Cowboys.
At the time I am writing this the Giants have scored a total of ten points with 333 yards in 97 minutes this season.
"It was a completely different defensive opponent we were playing", McAdoo said.
Left guard Justin Pugh could be an option, but only if the Giants get healthy at right tackle.
The Lions, as they did in their opener last week against the Arizona Cardinals, got a solid all-around performance Monday with big plays in every phase of the game. We do that, get our offense some good field position, we know they can put points on the board. We need to get the ball snapped. That's big for us. "We will on the defensive side". The Giants next few games offer no easy wins, with two games on the road against the Eagles and Buccaneers the next two weeks, followed by games against the Chargers, Broncos, and Seahawks.
