The reality is the Giants have a 1-4 record heading into Thursday night's game against the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) and they are facing long odds in a bid to make the playoffs in coach Pat Shurmur's first season.The struggling Eagles have beaten New York in their last three meetings and seven of the last eight. The Giants are coming off an excruciating last-second 33-31 loss to Carolina on a 63-yard field goal by Graham Gano Authentic Destiny Vaeao Jersey , and now they have to rebound with three days of preparation.But the Giants believe there is reason for hope. Their offense scored 30 points for the first time since the end of the 2015 season. The team rallied from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to take a lead with just over a minute to play, only to be denied by a near-record kick. And they did all this despite dealing with some ill-chosen words by star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., about Eli Manning and the team's heart in the days leading up to the game."Very optimistic," Beckham said Tuesday when asked about the team. "I've always said, it's a long season, and we have an opportunity to come in here in a big, big division game and be able to reshape our season. We know what we have in front of us, short week, just coming off of a tough loss, so we're all just trying to get our minds wrapped around what the game plan is, how we can come out and best beat Philly."The Eagles tend to bring out some of the best in the Giants. Despite winning only three games last season, they lost two games to Philadelphia by eight points, with the first coming on a last-second 61-yard field goal by Jake Elliott. The second was 34-29 in a game New York trailed by two points entering the final quarter.The Giants also could be getting some key players back. Linebacker and leading pass rusher Olivier Vernon, who has yet to play because of a high ankle sprain, is very close to ready. Tight end Evan Engram, who missed the last two games with a sprained knee, was going to test his knee in practice on Tuesday. Both were limited.Engram watched the telecast of the game in Charlotte this past weekend and was encouraged."There was a point in that game where maybe last year or the old DNA of this team would've given up or would've tapped out," Engram said.Rookie halfback Saquon Barkley said the Giants scored 30 and left points on the field."We got to continue to keep growing http://www.philadelphiaeaglesteamonlines.com/jordan-hicks-jersey , continue to keep working and to be able to put up 30 points," Barkley said. "I think that game showed it was the toughness, the grit, the passion that we played with as a team, and obviously the outcome wasn't the way we wanted to be, but you could learn a lot of things from that game and take that game a long way."NOTES: PK Aldrick Rosas, perfect on field goals and PATs this season, did not practice again because of a sore quad. The Giants have signed Marshall Koehn to their practice squad. He was in training camp. He was working for Randy's Flooring in Coralville, Iowa when the Giants called Monday. "I looked at my phone because I was making a delivery and there were two calls from my dad, two from my mom and two more my agent. Everyone was freaking out." Needless to say, he found his way to New Jersey. The Giants can wait until 4 p.m. on game day to active Koehn if needed. ... LB Connor Barwin (knee) and WR Russell Shepard (neck) also did not practice. Barwin has been dealing with a knee issue all season.Imagen
The Eagles are back to work on Wednesday and are shifting their focus toward a tough road matchup against the Saints on Sunday. Head coach Doug Pederson spoke to reporters before taking the field, and talked about their focus heading into the weekend and specific things the team needs to work on moving forward.Here’s what the head coach had to say:Injury and Personnel UpdatesPederson noted that Sidney Jones is still day-to-day and that they’d re-evaluate things at the end of practice on Wednesday and see where he’s at — but he will participate in practice. If he is ready to go, the head coach said Jones would line up both inside and outside, while pointing out that Avonte Maddox will probably continue to work in the nickel and they’ll ease Jones back in.Timmy Jernigan will be back on the practice field this week and will take on a little bit more, but he’s still day-to-day and while they are optimistic he might be ready to play on Sunday, Pederson didn’t appear too confident in that possibility.The head coach was asked if the team had learned anything about the players on IR after designating tight end Richard Rodgers to return. Pederson noted that Joshua Perkins had a knee injury and will miss substantial time. On whether Rodgers would be ready to play against the Saints, again Pederson said they were optimistic but that it’s day-to-day.(Are you sensing the trend yet?)Later, he was asked what his expectations for Darren Sproles were this week and — after Pederson shook off a surprised look — said that he’s just going to continue rehabbing and get healthy.On the state of the teamPederson said he feels really good about the guys. He went on to say that he spoke to the leadership committee earlier on Wednesday and asked them their thoughts on how the team was feeling and how they are handling being 4-5 on the season. The committee admitted that they are all disappointed Womens Brandon Graham Jersey , obviously, in their performance in a division game, but they are eager to get back on the practice field.He went on to say that the team is excited about what’s ahead of them, and that they understand the need for urgency in practice. He clarified though that it’s not a panic or anything, but just a sense of urgency in knowing what their jobs are and doing it collectively, and that they just need to take things one play at a time.Summed up though, he feels like the guys are in a good place, and are positive about moving forward. Later on he listed off some signs he looks for to indicate this, and he included that the guys are showing up on time, and are actively participating in practice, as well as how and when they are communicating.Pederson went on to say that the team understands where they are, and quite frankly, they dug themselves a hole that they need to climb their way out of.He also talked about what he expects from the veterans on the team, and Pederson explained that helping the young guys is a big thing. And not just telling them what they are doing wrong or right, but also getting them out on the field and showing them by example ways they can improve their games.On what they need to fixRight now, the focus for the team is finishing plays late in the game, whether it’s the offense executing a game-winning drive or the defense getting an offense off the field. Pederson said he pointed these issues out to the guys, and how important that particular part is to a win or loss Womens Corey Graham Jersey , citing the Jacksonville win and Dallas loss as examples.Pederson admitted that there’s a lot of frustration around where the team is right now, but said that they are so close. He went on to say that if you look at their output and production on offense, it’s very similar to what they were doing last year. The difference is: 1) creating turnovers on defense, and 2) scoring in the red zone.He said those two things are kind of staring the team in the face, because most of the other things are close to what they were doing a year ago. They need to finish better and score more points.It was later pointed out that early in the season, the coaches were calling on self-inflicted mistakes as the reason for some of the losses and sloppy play, but that against the Cowboys, there weren’t any penalties. He said all those things contribute to scoring points and finishing strong, but that all the other areas he noted that need improvement are part of that overall picture as well.On Golden Tate and the offenseHe talked about Tate being in late against Dallas, even during the uptempo offense, and Pederson said they had worked out a couple late-game plays that he was included in. (In reference to Pederson’s comments on Monday that Tate’s lack of targets was because they switched to their uptempo offense early, which Tate was still learning the lingo for.)On Saints prepPederson called the New Orleans defense multiple, they give a lot of coverages and are good at defending against the run. Those stats might be a little skewed since their offense is scoring at an astronomical rate, so other teams are having to pass more than they run. He said they’ve got a good third down defense, including some familiar faces like Kurt Coleman and Eli Apple, and Pederson also touted Cam Jordan as a “tremendous” pass rusher and can line up anywhere on the line.
