Giants defense faces $200M expectations
What can $200 million buy you? That’s what the 29-room Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles was on the market for earlier this year. It can buy you two Boeing 757 airplanes, like the one Donald Trump owns and has his name plastered all over. It can buy you 25 Maybach Exeleros, which at $8 million...

Giants rely on standout rookie to assist in secondary turnaround
It’s impossible to forget how last season began when it starts in the same place. It was in Arlington, Texas, where the Cowboys made up a 10-point deficit against the Giants with less than eight minutes remaining. First, Tony Romo completed six straight passes for 76 yards and a touchdown. On Dallas’ next drive, following...

The grass is only greener when it represents the color of money. Even then, sometimes it is best served to stay where you are. This is the perception versus reality debate defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins must be waging, as NFL free agency is more than two weeks old and he has not found a new...

Don’t look now, but Giants may have filled their tight end hole
Long a black hole for the Giants, the tight-end position now looks like a source of strength. That transformation still is in its infancy, but the duo of rookie Jerell Adams and second-year pro Will Tye is starting to come into its own, after playing a key role in the two most recent victories in...

Odell Beckham: Redskins will unleash ‘mental warfare’ on me
If Odell Beckham Jr. were preparing to face Odell Beckham Jr., he would do it. He would do it, especially this week, with Josh Norman looming and nine months of emotions bubbling to the surface Sunday at MetLife Stadium when the Redskins pay the Giants a visit. Beckham would try to get in Beckham’s head. “It’s...

Bats, blasts and Coughlin shrug: Chaos, fallout of Beckham-Norman feud
Here we go again. The Giants are 2-0 and have a golden opportunity Sunday to further distance themselves from the Redskins, last year’s NFC East champions, who are 0-2 with two losses on their home field. What should be the marquee attraction — an early-season division battle — will of course be overshadowed by ReceiverMania...

3 decisions that show the elite versatility of Giants defense
Of course they cannot. The Giants will not do much this season if they struggle to score touchdowns on offense and if they continue to turn over the ball more frequently than do their opponents. The Giants are 2-0, yet are minus-four in turnover ratio, with one interception and three lost fumbles on their ledger...

Why Ben McAdoo isn’t taking credit for Giants’ newfound ‘poise’
For a team that grew so accustomed to losing games like this, the Giants were awfully stoic about their harrowing 20-19 victory over the Cowboys, snapping a five-game losing streak in season openers. Oh, there was palpable joy oozing out of Victor Cruz after his first game, first touchdown and first salsa in 700 days...

Ben McAdoo not about to share his feelings about debut win
ARLINGTON, Texas — Ben McAdoo, 1-0 as a head coach in the NFL, was asked how it feels. “I’m still replaying the game in my head,’’ McAdoo said not long after Sunday’s 20-19 season-opening victory over the Cowboys. “Sometime in February I’ll enjoy it.’’ If McAdoo was feeling any sort of personal satisfaction, he kept...

ARLINGTON, Texas — The whipping boys of the Giants’ preseason dished up a whipping of their own when the games started counting.

FRISCO, Texas — As hard as it is to believe, Dez Bryant now is one of the old men in the Cowboys’ offense.

Predictably, Eli Manning was voted by his teammates as offensive captain for the 10th straight season.

Linebacker Jonathan Casillas wasn’t the obvious choice to be named the third full-season captain in just his second...
