Detroit Lions Super Bowl odds cut after strong start

However, the Giants are trying to avoid a second straight loss which would drop them to 0-2 and immediately make their season look like its moving to the brink.

"Because we have a veteran quarterback who has played a lot of football and I expect us to get the ball snapped", McAdoo explained.

As ESPN's Louis Riddick said about McAdoo's comments, "Regardless of whether it's fair or not, is that ever really a good look?" We were going to get everybody's best shot.

The Giants, who have now gone eight consecutive games scoring fewer than 20 points, got a third-quarter, 25-yard field goal by kicker Aldrick Rosas, cutting the deficit to 17-10. In order to make the math work on this team, NY skimped on its offensive line, surrounding Eli Manning with a group of young, cheap, underwhelming talents.

Ben McAdoo wasn't in position to counter any suggestions for fixing his broken football team, which is why he twice answered "we'll consider everything" in the shocking aftermath of the Giants' 24-10 loss to Detroit Monday night at home. That led to the field goal. The defensive backs played the wide receivers tight, the linebackers made stops at the line of scrimmage and they stopped NY on 67% of their third-down plays.

In the second quarter, the defense forced and then recovered a fumble by Stafford, who was sacked and stripped of the ball by defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Penalties, missed assignments and poor execution plagued the Giants all night. As McAdoo stated, the Giants have problems that extend beyond Flowers. "Kenny is a game-breaker type of guy", Tate said. So Manning couldn't get that fourth-down play off?

Marshall said that he lost the ball momentarily in the stadium lights. "I'm all right", Beckham said. He gets singled out and that's the way it goes in this league.

"That can't happen. When you get a big opportunity in a big game like this, in that situation when you're down and you have an opportunity to go down the field and score, that can't happen". Two plays later, Brad Wing's 60-yard punt was returned 88 yards for a touchdown by Jamal Agnew. The drive was set up when by the Whitehead interception.

Manning completed 22 of 32 passes for 239 passing yards and one touchdown, an 18-yard connection to the rookie tight end Evan Engram.

After Ebron's touchdown, he threw the ball up in the air and it ended up hitting Collins unintentionally.

The line is not opening holes for the run or giving Eli Manning time to throw.

"I think anytime you end up getting that kind of pressure and getting five sacks against a very explosive offense with weapons they have, it's a good thing", Lions coach Jim Caldwell said.
