It's official: Odell Beckham Jr's season is over. They are one of the best pass rushing teams in the league.
By mid-August at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, only three teams - the Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys?- had attracted more bets to win the Super Bowl than the Giants. "So, I just told him I'd be thinking about him and, obviously we don't know the severity of it, but hopefully he'll be okay".
On the team's final drive, the Giants had to use three tight ends to fill the vacancies.
I'm so thankful for this game.
If Brian Hoyer is going to keep throwing the ball almost 39 times per game, or 47.5 times per game as he has the last two games, there's room for someone besides Pierre Garcon to be fantasy relevant among 49ers wide receivers.
Beckham was in serious pain as he left the field. One thing is for sure, we won't be seeing the star receiver for quite a while. After newly returned kicker Nick Novak hit a 20-yard field goal the Bolts took a rare lead when Rivers found running back Melvin Gordon for a 6-yard touchdown.
The Giants lost Odell Beckham Jr.to a fractured left ankle, then lost the game in demoralizing fashion to the Los Angeles Chargers, 27-22, in front of 77,373 fans in attendance Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Buffalo Bills starting tight end Charles Clay is out indefinitely after having surgery on his left knee.
In the Giants' previous two games, the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers overcame fourth-quarter deficits, and each kicked a field goal on the final play of the game to beat NY. Beckham was in tears as possibly his season - and the Giants' - came to a harsh end soon after an Eli Manning fumble led to a game-winning Chargers touchdown. "You look in the mirror". "So, if you want to fix it, you've got to get a win".
"We're all pros - this is what we get paid to do. So, I just wanted to be able to make a play to change the game, and we fell short". Once he does, opposing defenses will be much more anxious about the passing game and running room should open up.
On if Chargers made adjustments down the stretch...
Gordon's 163 yards from scrimmage was his second-best total of his three-year career behind only a November 6, 2016 game against the Titans where Gordon erupted for 261 scrimmage yards. Chargers QB Philip Rivers passed Fran Tarkenton for 10th place on the career passing yards list.
He cares deeply. And that is going to make the likely outcome of this 2017 season - the long, hard march toward irrelevance and the top of the NFL Draft order - so hard for fans to endure.
