Good morning New York Giants Hats , -related headlines to get your day started.Saquon re-writing record booksWe have already spent some
time discussing how Saquon Barkley (519 rushing yards, 497 receiving yards) has
a shot at becoming the third player in NFL history to get 1,000 yards rushing
and receiving in the same season. He would join Roger Craig (1985) and Marshall
Faulk (1999) if he did so.The list of things Barkley has already, or could
eventually, accomplish this season is long.His 58 receptions leads all rookies.
At that pace, he would break the franchise record of 107 receptions in a season
held by Steve Smith.Barkley has already broken the franchise record for
receptions by a rookie running back. That was previously held by Bobby Duhon,
who had 37 in 1968.Barkley has a chance to shatter four more receptions records:
most catches by a rookie running back (88 by Reggie Bush in 2006); most catches
by a running back (102 by Matt Forte in 2014); most catches by an NFL rookie
(101 by Anquan Boldin in 2003); and most catches by a Giants rookie (91 by Odell
Beckham Jr. in 2014).On pace for 994 receiving yards, Barkley could break three
more records: most receiving yards by an NFL rookie running back (874 by Terry
Kirby in 1993); most receiving yards by a Giants running back (768 by Frank
Gifford in 1959; Gifford had 796 in 1962, but that season had only two rushing
attempts and was mostly a wide receiver, so the Elias Sports Bureau considers
the 1959 number as the record); and most receiving yards by a Giants rookie
running back (531 by Dave Meggett in 1989). Beckham holds the Giants rookie
record with 1,305 receiving yards.As a runner, Barkley is on pace to break the
franchise record of 836 rushing yards for a rookie, set by Tuffy Leemans in
1936.With seven touchdowns, Barkley has a chance to break the franchise rookie
record of 12 (Beckham 2014, Bill Paschal 1943).Highest percentage of team’s

2018NFLseason, no team has been mathematically eliminated from playoff

those teams should already start focusing on the 2019 draft... For nearly two
weeks we have wondered how, and if New York Giants Hoodie , the New York Giants would rebound from their Thursday night loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After what seemed like an eternity
between games, we got our answer in yet another loss, this time against the
Atlanta Falcons. Just watching the game revealed some good and entirely too much
bad with the Giants. Let's take a closer look at the stats from the game and see
what they have to tell us. OffenseQuarterbackMonday night’s loss to the Falcons
was a mixed bag for Eli Manning. The Giants’ quarterback had one of his best
games from a raw statistical point of view. He threw for 399 yards and a
touchdown, completing 71 percent of his passes and a season-high 10.5 yards per
attempt. Manning attacked every level of the Falcons’ defense, finally taking
advantage of a poor secondary to employ their playmakers. However, Eli also
missed some passes he probably should have connected on, and also made some poor
decisions which cost the offense opportunities for points. All in all, Manning
had his issues, but he also did about as much as he could to compensate for a
nonexistent running game and bad pass protection.Offensive LineThe third version
of the Giants’ offensive line — Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Spencer Pulley,
John Greco, and Chad Wheeler —was hardly an improvement on the previous two
combinations. Once again, Manning was under duress all game long, adding four
more sacks to his season total. He is on pace to be sacked 55 times this season,
shattering his career-high of 39, set in 2013. As has become a theme this
season, each of the Falcons best pass rushers got well within league-average of
Eli on their pass rushes, per Next Gen StatsMeanwhile, the blocking for Saquon
Barkley in the run game was nearly nonexistent.Skill Positions Speaking of
Barkley, who was on the field for 59 of the Giants’ 64 snaps, the looks he
received in the passing game weren’t any better than those he got in the run
game. He was targeted the second most times with 10, but all of them were in the
backfield on either swing passes or as check-downs. The Giants relied on Barkley
for easy completions Youth Customized New York Giants Jerseys , but never actually set him up to do much of anything with them. Unfortunately, his streak of games with 100 or more
scrimmage yards was broken, as he compiled 94 total yards. Given his extreme
explosiveness in the open field, it simply doesn’t make sense that the team
doesn’t let him run routes down the field, either from the backfield or from the
slot or wide receiver positions. But while the Giants’ usage of Barkley is
mystifying at best, they finally seemed to figure out how to use Odell Beckham
Jr. and Sterling Shepard. Beckham played 61 snaps (95 percent), while Shepard
played 59 (92 percent). The two combined for 210 yards on 13 receptions ( 8 for
143 yards and a touchdown for Beckham, 5 for 167 yards for Shepard), an
impressive enough box score. But more importantly was how they were used.
Finally, the Giants used Beckham and Shepard as the complimentary weapons they
are and moved them around the offensive front and targeted them down the field.
DefenseFront sevenThe Giants’ front seven had one of their best performances of
the season against a porous Atlanta offensive line. The team had three sacks in
the first quarter, and notched another 5 quarterback hits and 6 tackles for a
loss over the course of the game. For the first time since their Week 3 win at
Houston, the Giants consistently got closer than league-average to the
quarterback. Olivier Vernon, who played an incredible 64 of 65 snaps — only Alec
Ogletree played more — was the spark for the Giants’ defense early in the game.
He routinely beat his man and set up his teammates for their own success.
However, it was plain to see by the end of the game that he was gassed. He is a
very well-conditioned athlete and has a non-stop motor, but playing every
defensive snap but one is a lot to ask of a player in his second game back from
a leg injury. Fellow starting EDGE player Kareem Martin played 34 snaps (54
percent), making three tackles and a tackle for a loss. Lorenzo Carter (24
snaps) and Kerry Wynn (22 snaps) rotated with Martin. Carter picked up a tackle,
a tackle for a loss, a sack and a quarterback hit, while Wynn notched a tackle,
a tackle for a loss, a sack, a quarterback hit, and a pass defensed.For the
first time this season , B.J. Hill lead the defensive tackles in snaps, with 37 (57 percent). He didn’t
record a sack, but the rookie tackle once again flashed his power, leverage, and
technique with four tackles and a tackle for a loss.Dalvin Tomlinson was close
behind, logging 32 defensive snaps (49 percent), and notching four tackles of
his own. Damon Harrison brought up the rear for the starters, with 30 snaps (46
percent). Mario Edwards Jr. came up with a quarterback hit and a sack — wiped
out by penalty — in his 23 defensive snaps.SecondarySafeties Landon Collins and
Curtis Riley each played all of the Giants’ 65 defensive snaps, while Janoris
Jenkins played 61, and the recently-traded Eli Apple played 58 snaps. B.W. Webb
— who will now be the Giants’ starting corner in place of Apple — played 39
snaps, getting two tackles, as well as two tackles for a loss, a sack, and a
quarterback hit.The play of the Giants’ secondary against the Falcons’ passing
game is difficult to quantify. On one hand, they held Julio Jones to his lowest
per-catch average of the season, but he still caught 9 passes for 104 yards. The
problem for the Giants was that they simply did not have the defensive depth to
match up with the Falcons’ passing game. James Bettcher found early success by
having defensive backs blitz rather than try their hands in coverage, but
Atlanta eventually countered by replacing the blitz with the ball. The defense
did its job, holding the high-powered Falcons’ offense to just 23 points and
giving the Giants’ offense a chance (which it squandered) to build an early
lead. But once Atlanta adjusted, they did a fantastic job of finding the holes
created by the Giants’ blitz packages and spreading the ball around. Ten
different receivers caught passes from Matt Ryan, nine of whom caught at least
two passes. All in all, the Giants’ defense had its work cut out for it against
Atlanta’s potent offense. And while they were far from perfect, they did about
as well as could be expected without the offense providing anything like a
