Eli Manning led the 36th game-winning drive of his 15-year Verfasst am: Beitrag 07:49 Fr - Jan 04, 2019

career Monday night as the Giants defeated the San Francisco 49ers Womens Landon Collins Jersey , 27-23. The win broke the Giants’ five-game losing streak and raised their record to 2-7.The 49ers’ took the lead on a 30-yard field goal by Robbie Gould with 2:46 remaining.Manning and the Giants then went 75 yards in nine plays with Manning hitting Sterling Shepard with a 3-yard pass for the game-winner with 53 seconds remaining.The Giants’ drive was helped by a pair of penalties, a holding and a pass interference, against the 49ers. The first, a holding call against Malcolm Smith on third-and-12, gave the Giants a first down at the 49ers 46-yard line at the two-minute mark. The second, called against Ahkello Witherspoon on a pass intended for Odell Beckham, gave the Giants a first down at the 35. A 23-yard pass to Saquon Barkley put the Giants at the San Francisco 12-yard line and set up the game winner. Two plays later, Manning found Shepard in the left front corner of the end zone. The 49ers drove to the Giants’ 21-yard line with one second remaining, but a Nick Mullens’ Hail Mary was incomplete.“First win in our little eight-game season here,” coach Pat Shurmur said in the post-game. “We’ll put all our energy into playing Tampa when we get back from the flight.“Happy for our guys. It’s always fun to win a game.”Per the ESPN broadcast, the Giants had lost their last 20 games when trailing by 7 points or more.The Giants trailed at halftime, 13-10. The 49ers opened the second half by going 60 yards in 11 plays to take a 20-10 lead on an 11-yard pass to running back Matt Breida. A 20-yard touchdown pass from Manning to Beckham and a 31-yard Aldrick Rosas field goal made it 20-20 heading to the fourth quarter.“We made progress tonight,” Shurmur said. “As we go along here we’re going to have more victories. They’re going to always be hard fought. This team fights hard.”StatsManning finished 19-of-31 for 188 yards and three touchdowns. Barkley ran 20 times for 67 yards and had four catches for 33 yards. That gave him exactly 100 yards from scrimmage on the night Womens Curtis Riley Jersey , the eighth time in nine games he has accomplished that. Odell Beckham Jr. had four receptions for 73 yards and two scores.San Francisco quarterback Nick Mullens completed 27-of-39 for 250 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, both by linebacker B.J. Goodson. Matt Breida had 17 carries for 101 yards for the 49ers, and tight end George Kittle had a game-high nine catches for 83 yards.NFL Draft orderThe victory means the Giants would have the third overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft if it were held today. The 1-8 Oakland Raiders would have the first pick and the 2-8 49ers would pick at No. 2. The Arizona Cardinals are also 2-7, but the Giants would pick higher based on strength of schedule.What’s next?The Giants host Ryan Fitzpatrick and the 3-6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The game will mean a reunion with former Giants first-round pick Jason Pierre-Paul. Game time is 1 p.m.Pro Football Focus believes the Giants’ offensive line is trending up If there is one area where the New York Giants want — need, really — to see a tangible improvement in 2018 over 2017, it is on the offensive line. That was why Dave Gettleman completely tore down and rebuilt the offensive line this past offseason. The Giants made Nate Solder the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL (at the time), signed Patrick Omameh to a 3-year, $15 million ($10 million guaranteed) contract, and drafted Will Hernandez at the top of the second round in the 2018 NFL draft.So far we only have small sample sizes in preseason games, but advanced analytics service Pro Football Focus believes that the Giants’ offensive line is trending in the right direction.According to PFF’s grading system, Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio Womens Jon Halapio Jersey , and Ereck Flowers all improved from their first performance to their second. While neither the Browns nor the Lions have monstrous defensive fronts, they aren’t bad either. And players like Myles Garrett and Ezekiel Ansah present serious challenges to any blocker they go against. The Giants seem to have solidified the left side of their offensive line with Solder and Hernandez, and it is encouraging that Ereck Flowers seems to be adjusting to life on the right side of the line. The concern here is on the interior. Jon Halapio seems to be entrenched as the starter getting all the first team snaps in both pre-season games and being named a game-day captain in Detroit. Meanwhile, Patrick Omameh took a step back in PFF’s eye, which is a definite concern. Pat Shurmur said after Friday night’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions that he was happy with how the offensive line performed, and how the running game responded to a mid-game adjustment. “I thought they performed better than the week before,” Shurmur said. “Aside from the one play where the ball potentially got knocked out of Davis (Webb’s) hand, I thought the protection was pretty good. I thought we did a decent job run blocking. There’s certainly plays in there where we can do better, but for the most part, I think they battled. I think they had 25 snaps together, and there were really no communication errors. So it was a solid performance. There’s plenty of areas where we can get better, but each week they’re doing some things better and better.”On the other side of the coin, NFL.com has concerns about the state of the offensive line http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-hill-jersey , writing,I’m not sure which “easy blocks” Hernandez missed, but as Shurmur notes, the snap which ended with Webb’s incomplete pass was an ugly one for the right side. The Giants do have options, such as Brett Jones at center and John Greco at right guard, if Halapio can’t continue to improve or if Omameh can’t turn his trend around. But for now, with just small sample sizes in preseason games to work with, we should at least be encouraged that the line as a whole is trending in the right direction. The offensive line might not be “fixed”, but if it is at least functional the Giants will be in a better position than they were for much of 2017 and several teams will be in this year.
