up empty White Phil McConkey Jerseys , the New York Giants have something to smile about starting off a week.It's amazing what a win can do for a team."Anytime you win, it kind of verifies that what you're doing is right," coach Pat Shurmur said Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Giants (2-7) rallied late to snap a five-game losing streak with a 27-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers."The reason we all started playing and coaching football is because we love the competition, we love the physical nature of the game, and we love the process of getting ready to play the next opponent," Shurmur added."Then on game day, you put all your energy into winning, all your energy into putting a winning performance on the field, and so I sensed real joy in the locker room yesterday 鈥?a bunch of guys that put a lot into it, and we were able to overcome some adversity and win a football game."The goal now for the Giants is to try to put a couple of wins together. They haven't done that since December 2016. They have a 5-20 record in their past 25 games.The difference Monday night against the 49ers was the Giants made plays. Eli Manning threw three touchdowns and engineered a late drive capped by a short touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard.The offensive line, aided by the addition of newcomer Jamon Brown at right guard Phil McConkey Jerseys 2019 , allowed only one sack and the defense got two interceptions from linebacker B.J. Goodson.Special teams also contributed as Aldrick Rosas kicked two field goals and Corey Coleman had three kickoff returns for 92 yards.The performance by Manning was excellent. There have been many calling for the 37-year-old to be benched with the team losing again. The two-time Super Bowl MVP answered the critics."Any time a player puts a winning performance on the field, he should feel good about it at least for a day or so," Shurmur said. "The challenge is to then prepare to do it again in a week, so I don't know. That's a question for him, but he had a winning performance, he helped us win a game, and he should feel good about that. Now we just have to build on that going into Tampa."The Giants will play host to the Buccaneers in their bid for their first win of the season at home (0-4).While the Giants' chances of making the playoffs remain dim, Shurmur likes the team that has been assembled in his first season."This is a really good locker room 鈥?we're young, we're new, but these guys believe in each other and try to play the game for each other," he said. "I don't know if they were loose, I don't know if that's the right term White Mark Bavaro Jerseys , but I thought they were just out there playing hard and having fun playing football."NOTES: Shurmur said the Giants had the usual wear and tear in the game, but he expects no one to miss Sunday. ... Brown played very well considering he had been with the team only a week. ... Shurmur also said rookie linebacker Lorenzo Carter had his best game in both the pass rush and coverage. ... Saquon Barkley had 20 carries for 67 yards and caught four passes for 33 yards. It was the eighth time in nine games Barkley had at least 100 scrimmage yards. "If we're just going to talk about Saquon and his involvement in the game, whether we hand it to him or throw it to him, it really doesn't matter. You'd like to see your back touch the ball or run the ball close to 20 times," Shurmur saidGiants-Eagles odds: Giants will be underdogs at home vs. Eagles The New York Giants came close to a late road win against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5, losing in the final seconds thanks to a 63-yard Graham Gano field goal. But close doesn’t count in the NFL; the Giants are still a one-win team, and while they return to their home-field in Week 6, the lines aren’t giving the team much of an advantage. The visiting Philadelphia Eagles opened as 2.5-point favorites and, as of Tuesday, they are now favored by three points at both Bovada.lv as well as 5dimes.eu. The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles, at 2-3, aren’t as formidable as expected to open the season. They’ve scored just 103 points — one fewer than the Giants — through five games Mark Bavaro Jerseys 2019 , and their injury-ravaged running backs cadre has left quarterback Carson Wentz vulnerable, having taken 12 sacks in three games. The Giants surprisingly surpassed the 30-point mark on the road against Carolina, a total the Eagles have yet to reach this season. While that doesn’t mean the Giants will reprise the performance on Thursday, that they managed it just days ahead of their divisional rivals coming to town is, at the very least, a morale boost. And the NFC East remains up for grabs with the rest of the division at two wins apiece. The Giants still have a reason to fight. On offense, lean on Saquon Barkley as both a rusher and receiver, and on defense, force Wentz to throw and then bring the pressure: It’s a not-so-complicated way to a win.While smart money is on the Eagles early, that may not be the reality of the situation come Thursday night. As disappointing as the Giants have been this season, being at home on a short week against a slumping Philadelphia squad could do the team a world of good.
