as they lost to the Atlanta Falcons Color Rush Corey Ballentine Jersey , 23-20. The loss was the Giants’ fourth straight, dropping them to 1-6.Eli Manning completed 27-of-38 passes for 399 yards and a touchdown. Odell Beckham caught 8 passes for 143 yards, his first touchdown of the season, and surpassed 5,000 receiving yards for his career, the second-fastest player in NFL history to reach that mark. Sterling Shepard caught 5 passes for 167 yards.Saquon Barkley — 43 yards rushing, 51 receiving for 94 total yards — fell 6 yards shy of tying Kareem Hunt’s NFL record of seven straight games of at least 100 yards from scrimmage to begin a career.Despite the nice numbers for Manning, Beckham and Shepard, the Giants’ offense really wasn’t good enough. They got two touchdowns in the final 4:52 Youth Corey Ballentine Jersey , but did not take advantage of opportunities prior to that. The Falcons entered the game giving up 32.0 point per game, but the Giants didn’t get a touchdown until the game’s final five minutes.Moments that matteredTwo milestones for Beckham. A 51-yard catch in the third quarter made him the fast player to reach 5,000 receiving yards and gave him his 23rd 100-yard receiving game, breaking a tie with Amani Toomer for the franchise record.Two big misses: Late in the first half, the Giants missed a touchdown opportunity when Manning missed Beckham in the corner of the end zone. The Giants settled for a field goal. On a fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line in the third quarter, Manning bypassed Beckham and threw incomplete to Scott Simonson.The game really hinged on these two opportunities. Out of a possible 14 points the Giants came away with only 3.The clincher: Giorgio Tavecchio nailed a 56-yard field goal at the two-minute warning to give the Falcons a two-score lead, 23-12. Tavecchio was signed to replace injured placekicker Matt Bryant.Clock management question: Trailing 23-12 the desperate Giants got to the Atlanta 1-yard line with 1:11 to play. The Giants had no timeouts remaining. Rather than clock the ball, they ran two unsuccessful quarterback sneaks before finally scoring on a 1-yard pass to Beckham with just :05 remaining. The curious clock management meant they really wouldn’t have had time for a Hail Mary even if they had recovered the ensuing onside kick.What’s next?The Giants face the division-leading Washington Redskins (4-2) on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Early in the 2018 season, while Vernon was still recovering from a freak ankle injury suffered in practice during the preseason, the Giants fielded one of the very worst pass rushes in the NFL. With Vernon now gone for good, the Giants are hoping for Lorenzo Carter to develop and unleash his formidable athletic ability and that Markus Golden will be able to fully recover from his torn ACL and show that his 2016 production wasn’t a fluke. But even if both of those work out in the Giants’ favor, they still need more pass rushers and more depth aat the defensive EDGE position. The Giants passed up elite EDGE prospects at the top of the draft, but after a four-hour wait on Day 2 they selected Oshane Ximines out of Old Dominion. Let’s take a closer look at the Queens native and see what the first player ever drafted out of ODU can bring to the Giants’ defense.MeasurablesProsShows very good hand usage. Consistently uses his hands to keep blockers from locking in. Has a variety of pass rush moves. Good pop for a modestly sized EDGE.Experience rushing from a two or three-point stance. Rushed from the interior or as stand-up interior blitzer on nickel downs. Sets a firm edge in the run game. High motor player who gives maximum effort on every play. Multiple time team captain and reportedly a high-character young man.ConsFirst step isn’t sudden and shows some wasted motion. Shows some lower-body stiffness that limits him as a speed rusher. Has a strong tendency to lose track of the football on play-action and option plays. Doesn’t have great length, and his size limits him in certain situations.Frame appears close to maxed out. Numbers of note(Per Sports Info Solutions Rookie Handbook)Ximines started 48 of 49 games for Old Dominion. The lone game he didn’t start was Senior Day in 2016. Ximines’ broken tackle rate dropped from 10.4 percent in 2016 to 4.8 percent by 2018, while his tackle share and pressure share rose each year.Rushed on 91.9 percent of his snaps White Lawrence Taylor Jerseys , and played 78.6 percent of his snaps in a 3-point stance. Had a pressure rate of 14.4 percent in 2018, with 11.5 sacks, 18 QB hits, 8 knockdowns, 31 hurries, and 46 pressures. Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Joe Marino (The Draft Network - Scouting Report) Does He Fit The Giants?Ximines (or X-Man, as Pat Shurmur called him), should be a solid fit as a rotational piece in James Bettcher’s multiple defense. He has the versatility to rush as a defensive end or as a linebacker, from both inside and outside alignments Authentic Corey Ballentine Jersey , depending on down, distance, and subpackage. Ximines is an average athlete, but compensates for it with good, active hands and a variety of pass rush moves to keep blockers from being able to lock in on his chest plate and gain leverage. His first step could probably be best described as “okay” at the moment — it isn’t bad, but it also isn’t a strength. He shows some wasted motion off the snap, particularly out of a three-point stance. He will be a more effective rusher at the NFL level if he is able to generate more explosive power and push off without losing energy along the way.As a 6-foot-3, 253-pound EDGE rusher, Ximines would typically expected to be a speed rusher Lawrence Taylor Jerseys 2019 , but between his first step and some lower body (hips and ankle) stiffness, he is forced to be more of a power rusher. Ximines has built his game around that, favoring both a straight bull-rush and a long-arm move to take advantage of his upper body strength and natural leverage. He does have an effective arm-over move as a speed counter for when tackles are expecting his power moves. All told, Ximines is a high-floor player who should be a good locker room presence and slot in fairly early as a rotational piece and a regular feature in third down packages. His athletic limitations might keep him from being a high-ceiling player, but even a steady contributor is still useful.
