GIANTS Over Steelers-4FGs, 1TD, Safety[Oct 26]

For a few minutes it felt like February all over again, with the crowd cheering, cameras flashing, the Giants' defense getting pressure and the offense moving down the field at will.

Then came the reminder that the 2007 season is over. And if the Giants plan to defend their Super Bowl title, it won't be easy at all.


The defending champs did open with a win Thursday night, but it was a struggle as they fizzled out after a fast and emotional start. In the end, they held off the Washington Redskins, 16-7, in their season opener at Giants Stadium. But the way the offense started and the way the defense was playing, it was a game that should have been over by the half.

"I felt like if we played our best game we would've won by a couple of scores," said defensive tackle Barry Cofield. "They were on their heels and they regrouped."

Re: NY GIANTS Win Opener Against Wash 16-7

Postby TeMerc » Sun Sep 14, 2008 1:24 pm

Giants extended their away games win streak to 11 with a win over St. Louis, 41-13.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2008

The Giants still feel at home on the road.

Playing as visitors for the first time this season, the Giants continued their remarkable success away from Giants Stadium with a 41-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams in the Edward Jones Dome.

The Giants have now won 11 consecutive road games (eight in the regular season and three in the postseason). If the neutral-site Super Bowl XLII is included their winning streak away from Giants Stadium is 12 games.

More importantly, the Giants improved to 2-0 for the first time since 2005. They host the Cincinnati Bengals next week, then have a bye. St. Louis dropped to 0-2.

Eli Manning threw touchdown passes to Plaxico Burress, Amani Toomer and Ahmad Bradshaw – who each scored for the first time this season – and John Carney kicked field goals of 39 and 33 yards for the Giants. RB Bradshaw also had a 31-yard touhdown run.

Manning, Giants edge Bengals in overtime thriller
By Joe Rizzo PA SportsTicker Contributing Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New York Giants were not perfect on Sunday, but their record remained unblemished.

Eli Manning directed an overtime drive that John Carney capped with his fourth field goal of the game, a 22-yarder with 8:39 remaining, as the Giants outlasted the Cincinnati Bengals, 26-23.

The reigning Super Bowl MVP, Manning made a pair of pivotal plays on the final drive to get the Giants (3-0) off to their best start since 2000. New York, which has a bye next week, improved to 16-4 all-time in games preceding its bye.

"That was a fun one," Manning said. "It wasn't pretty at all times. We didn't play our best football. But when we needed plays, guys stepped up and made plays. Your goal is to start fast. It's a good feeling. We're going to enjoy this week off."

Manning found Plaxico Burress, who beat Leon Hall for a 28-yard reception that moved the ball to the Cincinnati 38-yard line with 10 minutes left in the extra session.

"You just have to make that play," said Hall, who did an otherwise outstanding job at left cornerback of being the main defender against Burress. "That hurt us. We have to finish, especially in overtime like that."

After two incomplete passes, Manning lofted a 31-yarder to a wide-open Amani Toomer, who made an acrobatic catch outside of Chinedum Ndukwe along the left sideline before tip-toeing out of bounds at the Cincinnati 7.

Giants defeat Seahawks, 44-6
By Michael Eisen, Giants.com

OCTOBER 5, 2008

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - The Giants are playing so well, not even the annual regular season bye can stunt their momentum.

WR Domenik Hixon started in place of Plaxico Burress and caught a TD
After enjoying a week off, the Giants celebrated their return to action Sunday with a 44-6 dismantling of the Seattle Seahawks in Giants Stadium.

The Giants improved to 4-0 for the first time since 1990. They are now 5-15 in games after a bye. And they won their third home game, matching their Giants Stadium victory total in each of the previous two seasons.

The 38-point margin of victory was the Giants’ largest since a 62-10 victory over the Philadelphia on Nov. 26, 1972 and their largest in any game since a 44-3 rout of San Francisco in an NFC Divisional Playoff Game on Jan. 4, 1987.

Browns take apart Giants, 35-14, on Monday Night Football

BY RALPH VACCHIANO
DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

CLEVELAND - The Giants always knew their magical ride was going to end sometime, and it's probably better that it happened early.

But that won't make last night's sloppy, disappointing and surprising loss to the Cleveland Browns any easier for the defending Super Bowl champions to take.

We were just sloppy," said quarterback Eli Manning. "Sloppy football. That's unacceptable."

"We make no excuses for this," Tom Coughlin added. "We got beat."

Actually, on a nationally televised stage, they got embarrassed by the Cleveland Browns, 35-14, snapping their eight-game winning streak and their run of 12 straight wins away from home. In their worst performance in nearly 11 months, the Giants' third-ranked defense was shredded by the NFL's worst offense. And Manning helped throw the game away with three interceptions - three times as many as he had in the first four games.
