Giants Get First Win, Upset Denver 23-10
The New York Giants finally found the win column on Sunday night, surprising the Denver Broncos 23-10.
The Giants, without Odell Beckham Jr, Sterling Shepard and Brandon Marshall, were able to rely on their running game for the first time this season. Orleans Darkwa rushed for 117 yards and Eli Manning finished just 11 of 19 for 128 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Evan Engram led the new-look receiving corps with 5 catches for 82 yards and score. Tavarres King, Roger Lewis and Jerell Adams each had one reception.
Two notable changes in the Giant offense this week: Head coach Ben McAdoo relinquished the play calling duties to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, and the Giants shuffled the O-line hoping to provide better protection for Manning. Eli was sacked three times, but overall the changes seemed to work.
The Giants' defense intercepted Trevor Siemian twice and force three fumbles. Janoris Jenkins returned one of those pics 42 yards for a defensive TD.
The 1-5 Giants host Seattle in Week 7. The Broncos are at the Charges.
