While Beckham is slated to be back, we still do not think it is enough to power the Giants to victory.
QB Comparison: Stafford made plays with both his right arm and his legs.
Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie were expected to start at cornerback for the Giants. For the Lions, the only hole they will need to fill is DE Ezekiel Ansah.
Deonte Thompson's 14-yard TD catch with 1:43 to play prevented the shutout.
While Janoris Jenkins will likely spend the entire game locking down Marvin Jones Jr., Lions rookie receiver Kenny Golladay could expose the weak point in the Giants' secondary: Eli Apple. Week 1 showed a heavy pass game, will that change this week against the Giants?
The team commanded by quarterback Matthew Stafford looked good in Week 1, when they beat the Cardinals hard.
Aldrick Rosas cut the deficit with a third quarter field goal but Agnew's superb punt return in the fourth quarter left Detroit in control. Detroit is 2-0, and the Giants have now gone eight straight games without scoring 20 points. It is the longest active streak in the NFL.
I just hope you're not asking so you can set your fantasy lineup. "Came out and do what I can". "Just trying to get my feet wet". Still, they managed just 10 points and it was ugly.
"Obviously, I'm sure they're looking at that game some, and kind of figuring out what we did well, what we didn't do well", Stafford said.
NY also committed a couple of costly penalties while dropping into last place in the NFC East all by itself at 0-2.
And that's the situation the Giants find themselves in Monday night against the Detroit Lions. "They're a timing offense, so it's important for us to get hands on their receivers and make their job hard to get open, and then get pressure on the quarterback". And we've seen it one week into the regular season. "We've got to get to work". He's had at least 90 receptions, 1,300 yards, and 10 touchdowns in each of his three National Football League seasons.
The defeat leaves the Giants at the foot of the NFC East while the Lions head the NFC North from Minnesota, Green Bay and Chicago. "The biggest thing is you don't want to put a player out there that is going to do any harm to himself or injure himself any more than he is".
