Good morning New York Giants Hoodie , New York Giants fans! Let’s get right down to business on your Thanksgiving Week Monday morning.NFC East standings— not a good one, but a chance — in an up-for-grabs NFC East. Here are the current standings:Washington Redskins 6-4 (.600)Dallas Cowboys 5-5 (.500)Philadelphia Eagles 4-6 (.400)Giants 3-7 (.300)The Giants are 0-3 in the division, but still have games with each of the teams ahead of them. Beginning, of course, this Sunday in Philadelphia.Eli’s record-setting dayEli Manning went 17-of-18 for 231 yards, two touchdowns and a 155.8 passer rating on Sunday. Manning’s 94.4 completion percentage is a Giants record in a game with at least 10 attempts. The last NFL quarterback with a percentage that high with at least 10 attempts was Miami’s Ryan Tannehill on Oct. 25, 2015, when he was 18-for-19 vs. Houston. Manning’s previous best completion percentage was 87.1 (27-of-31) at Miami on Dec. 14, 2015. His second-highest was the 86.2 (25-of-29) he posted in the victory in Houston on Sept. 23.Michael Thomas was ready for onside kickGiants’ defensive back Michael Thomas has long been one of the league’s best special teams players. Sunday he correctly diagnosed and then recovered an onside kick with 2:22 to play and the Giants clinging to a three-point lead.“We have a bunch of veterans who have been premier special teams players for their different teams. So once we saw the formation, we pretty much knew where they were trying to go with the ball with how they were lined up with two guys on either side of the kicker bunched in, so once we saw it, we were prepared,” Thomas said. “We saw the ball kicked at the tee, saw the ball kicked and went up and made a play.”The six-year veteran didn’t listen to the inner voice that was telling him to get down once he corralled the ball, though he knew he should have.“Obviously the rule is to get down Aldrick Rosas Color Rush Jersey , but if they didn’t tackle me, I was going to the crib,” Thomas said.Some leftover statistical notesTampa Bay’s 510 yards was the highest total for a Giants opponent since the Saints gained 608 yards in their 52-49 victory in New Orleans three years ago.Tampa Bay’s 31 first downs was the highest total for a Giants opponent since the Saints had 35 on Nov. 1, 2015.The second Giants’ touchdown drive covered 95 yards and took 12 plays and 6:36 to complete. It was the Giants’ longest drive since a 96-yarder at Miami on Dec. 14, 2015.Odell Beckham Jr.’s touchdown reception was the 43rd of his career, tying Frank Gifford for fourth on the Giants’ career list.Around the Inter-GoogleSaquon, Eli, Odell: All the Giants' dreams on display vs. BucsWhat the New York Giants put together in Sunday’s 38-35 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was more than the first home win of the season, the first time this season the MefLife Stadium faithful got to stay entertained and exit satisfied.Saquon Barkley gives electric peek at how Giants run the tableNew York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was the best player on the MetLife Stadium field, a player who made life so much easier on an eerily efficient Eli Manning, and on Odell Beckham Jr., a player who will make Life After Eli Manning so much easier.NY Giants back in playoff hunt after beating Bucs ... seriouslyThe Giants may have a 3-7 record, they've won two straight while the NFC East is in disarray.

Wild.Odell Beckham's Giants goal to win out is looking less funny“The goal is to win every game,” Odell Beckham Jr. said after catching team-highs of four passes and 74 yards along with a touchdown. “Six games left, it’s really only crazy until you do it.” The schedule is manageable, with just two games left against teams over .500. Those happen to be at home against the Bears on Dec. 2 and a Dec. 9 clash with the Redskins in Washington. NEW YORK (AP) — The co-owner of the New York Giants is embarrassed by the team’s second straight 1-5 start and he wants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to make his highlights on the field instead of getting recognition from off-the-field comments.Speaking before the fall meeting of the NFL owners Tuesday, John Mara was clearly miffed by the disappointments of a season he had hoped would make fans forget the 3-13 campaign a year ago that led to the firings of coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese.New general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur turned over more than half the roster, spent almost $80 million rebuilding the offense line, made Beckham the highest-paid receiver in the league with a $95 million deal and had high hopes heading into the season.It hasn’t worked out and the biggest disappointment came Thursday when the struggling Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles came to MetLife Stadium and embarrassed the Giants.What made the loss even more disappointing was the Giants felt they were close to turning things around.“I’m sick about it, particularly the way we’ve disappointed our fans Odell Beckham Jr Color Rush Jersey ,” Mara said. “To start out like this is very disappointing. I don’t think you ever expect to go 1-5 … two years in a row. I’m still embarrassed being 1-5. I can’t stand up here and make any excuses about that. We suffer as much as our fans, maybe more.”Beckham had been on his best behavior this season, but the losing seemed to catch up to him in recent weeks. He did an interview on ESPN more than a week ago where he complained that Eli Manning was not throwing the ball down the field. He also questioned the heart of his teammates.That did not sit well with Mara, who had spoken to Beckham about getting his act together in the offseason.“I think he needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking,” Mara said. “I wish he would create the headlines by his play on the field, as opposed to what he says and does off the field.”Beckham leads the Giants with 45 catches for 506 yards, but he only has one touchdown catch.While the 37-year-old Manning has gotten most of the blame for the woes of the offense, Mara said a lot of players have to share the blame. He added that it would be up to Shurmur to decide if a change was to be made.Mara believes Gettleman and Shurmur will turn things around, and he defended their choice of running back Saquon Barkley with the second pick overall in the draft.“We went with the best player in the draft,” Mara said. “I still believe he’s the best player in the draft. I’m thrilled with what he’s accomplished so far, and I think the sky’s the limit for him.”Barkley has rushed for 438 yards and four touchdowns and caught 40 passes for 373 yards and two TDs.The choice has been criticized by some because the Jets took quarterback Sam Darnold with the third pick and they are 3-3.
