EAST RUTHERFORD Darqueze Dennard Jersey , N.J. (AP) — If the first three preseason games are any indication, the New York Giants are going to have to rely on Eli Manning and the passing game to put up points.

The running game just hasn’t been there, and it has nothing to do with No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley missing the last two games with a mild hamstring injury.

While the new revamped offensive line has blocked well for Manning, it is not producing many holes for the running backs.

In the 22-16 win over the Jets on Friday night, the Manning and the No. 1 offense played the first half. The two-time Super Bowl MVP was 17 of 23 for 188 yards. The rushing attack had nine attempts for 1 yard. Veteran Jonathan Stewart had three carries for minus 7 yards and lost a fumble on a first-and-goal at the Jets 6.

The Giants used a lot of two tight end formations in the first half and coach Pat Shurmur said Saturday that the Jets made it tough on the running game putting extra people near the line of scrimmage.

“Nonetheless, we need to do a better job in all areas, whether it’s getting on the right people,” Shurmur said. “There weren’t really missed assignments, so to speak, but we’ve just got to get off the double teams a little quicker and then just hit it up in there and give the runner a little bit more room to get his feet going.”

Left tackle Nate Solder, who has was signed as a free agent, said the Jets have a good run defense.

“That shouldn’t stop us from being at least efficient in the run game,” the former Patriot said. “You never want to lose yards in the run game. If you are gaining a few here or there, keeping it mixed up http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-parker-jersey , that’s fine. When you are losing yards, no matter what the defense is doing, you are doing something wrong. We have to work at that.”

One thing that did work was the play-action pass. Manning found Cody Latimer for 54 yards on a play in which the safety bit on a play action, leaving Latimer one on one with the cornerback. If the 37-year-old Manning had led Latimer a little more it would have been a touchdown.

Instead, he was tackled at the 6-yard line and Stewart, who has nine carries for minus 5 yards in three games, fumbled on the next play.

In the first halves of the past two games, the running attack has gained 16 yards on 20 carries.

It’s not the type of production that Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman expected after signing Solder and guard Patrick Omameh as free agents and drafting guard Will Hernandez in the second round. They are joined on the line by Jon Halapio at center and former first-round pick Ereck Flowers at right tackle.

“We’re accustomed to always putting it on our shoulders,” Omameh said of the line’s approach to the running game. “We’ll take the full brunt wherever. At the end of the day, we are always going to put those rushing stats on ourselves.”

There is a chance the line needs more time to work things out. The group also may benefit from the production of the passing, especially when Odell Beckham Jr. finally plays in a game and Barkley returns to action. Both should happen in the season opener at home against Jacksonville on Sept. 9.

The offense also needs to score touchdowns. The first team accounted for three field goals in the half, while special teams scored a touchdown on a punt return and set up a field goal recovering a kickoff at the Jets 16.

“I thought there were some good things,” Manning said. “Obviously, took some shots down the field and hit a bunch of them Tracy Walker Jersey , missed on a couple, but I thought there was definitely some good things. Obviously, we want to score more when we get into the red zone, get touchdowns down there, but I thought there were a lot of good things and (we) moved the ball pretty well.”

NOTES: Shurmur had no update on tight end Evan Engram. He sustained a concussion in the second quarter and is in the concussion protocol. … The blurred eye vision that fellow tight end Rhett Ellison experienced was blamed on a migraine, the coach said. … Second-year placekicker Aldrick Rosas probably retained his job hitting field goals from 48, 40, 27 and 21 yards, while getting touchbacks on his kickoffs.

BOSTON — On May 13, 2013, the Boston Bruins made history by rallying from three goals down in the third period and winning Game 7 of their playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime.

Down by one, the Bruins pulled Tuukka Rask and scored twice, Patrice Bergeron tying it with 51 seconds left in regulation and then winning it in OT.

That was five years ago and the Original Six rivals meet in the playoffs again for the first time since, playing Game 1 of their Eastern Conference series at TD Garden on Thursday night.

While Rask Authentic Kyle Quincey Jersey Kids , Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Brad Marchand are still leading Boston, both of these teams are younger and faster and are each playing for a different coach.

“As a Leaf fan, it was tough,” Toronto’s Mitch Marner, 16 when his team lost to the Bruins in 2013, said.

“It was hard to deal with,” said Nazem Kadri, who made it 4-1 with 5:39 left in the third of that fateful game and is one of five Leafs still with the team.

“Nothing’s changed in terms of Boston being a resilient group. They’ve got some veteran guys over there that have some serious experience.

“It’s going to take all we’ve got, but we’re up for the challenge.”

The Maple Leafs finished third in the Atlantic Division, their 49-26-7 record leaving them seven points behind the second-place Bruins, who missed the chance to win the division and the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a loss to the Florida Panthers on Sunday night.

The injury-plagued Bruins went 1-3-1 over the last five games.

“We won 50 games, and I think the body of work speaks that this team deserves to be where we are, and we focus on Thursday night Luke Willson Jersey ,” said Bruins general manager Don Sweeney.

Toronto won three of the four games between the teams during the regular season, one of them in overtime.

Rask, 30-23 with a 2.12 goals-against average and .928 save percentage lifetime in the playoffs, was in goal for the seven-game 2013 win. He is 16-7-2 with a 2.14 GAA and .925 save percentage in the regular season against the Leafs and also went 4-3 against them in those playoffs.

Amid theories he was overused, Maple Leafs netminder Fredrick Andersen struggled with an .884 save percentage in March but then won twice in April. He has also owned the Bruins throughout his career with Anaheim and Toronto, going 10-1-0 with a 2.09 GAA and .935 save percentage against Boston.

He won 38 games and pitched five shutouts (Rask had three) during the regular season and is 19-13 with a 2.41 GAA and .915 save percentage lifetime in the playoffs. Andersen lost twice in Game 7s that would have sent the Ducks to the finals.

“If you lose a game or let in a goal … you’ve got to have a short memory and be able to get back on track and just do what you try every time there’s a puck in your end,” Andersen said Monday. “Just try to make a save. You can’t dwell on anything. Just make the next one.

“We’ve been growing as a team through the year. It’s going to be exciting.”

The Bruins appear to be healthier than they have been in a month — so healthy that rookie Ryan Donato, signed late and an offensive factor for the team down the stretch, is slated to be a healthy scratch for Game 1.

Both Rick Nash, who missed the last 12 games with an upper-body injury, and Sean Kuraly were back at practice Monday, coach Bruce Cassidy saying, “They looked good. It bodes well for them.”

Boston center Riley Nash (ear) will miss the opener.
