Philadelphia Eagles 34 – Saquon Barkley 13

Written by Alexander George

Saquon Barkley (13 Rushing attempts for 130 yards, 1 TD, Long 50 yards & 9 Rec out of 12 targets for 99 yards , Long 55 yards). had the best game of his rookie season. Barkley was the only one who showed up in the Eagles beating of the New York Giants 34 – 13. With that performance, he is currently second only to Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt for consecutive 100 rushing and reception yards in a single season with 6 games. Hunt accomplished the feat last season with 7 consecutive 100 all-purpose yards. Even Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas 2 field goals of 33 and 21 yards were primarily set up by the Big Blue runner in a 46 yard run and a 55 yard reception in the first half of play.Ironically enough Rosas first miss of the season, a 52 yard field goal  with a little over 1 minute in the first half, did not feature a huge play by Barkley in the drive.

by Alexander George & Glenn Warciski

With 6 seconds left, Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano scores on a 63 yard field goal as the Panthers defeat the New York Giants 33 – 31.

Gano is 1 yard short of the NFL record, set by Matt Prater (Broncos/Lions), and is currently tied with Tom Dempsey (Saints), Jason Elam (Broncos/Falcons), Sebastian Janikowski (Raiders/Seahawks) and David Akers (Eagles/49ers/Lions) for the second longest field goal of all-time. History also repeats itself as the last time the Giants faced the Panthers in 2015, Gano hit a game winning 43 yard field goal as well defeating Big Blue 38 – 35. Continue reading

Davis Webb’s – “The Drive”

by Alexander George

Second year New York Giants quarterback Davis Webb (14 for 20, 140 yds & 1TD) had his best game in his entire pre-season career last Friday against the Detroit Lions. The performance was certainly more memorable than his entire 2017 pre-season (18 for 34, 190 yards in 3 games). No touchdowns were thrown by Webb last pre-season. In contrast, Webb orchestrated a seventeen play, seventy – nine yard drive in the first quarter which resulted in his first touchdown this pre-season and career in the NFL; an eight yard touchdown pass to Giants running back Wayne Gallman. This score gave Big Blue a 7 – 3 lead in which the team never looked back in a 30 – 17 victory over the Lions. Continue reading
