Some fans call him “Easy Eli,” but it was an uphill climb for Manning to pull off another trademark fourth-quarter comeback and secured the Giants’ first win of the season.
You got just enough of a taste on Wednesday night to whet your NFL appetite. But the first full weekend of the season is upon us, and the season will begin to take shape. Here are some things to look for in Week 1 action.
ACL and Achilles Tendon injuries are accounting for most of the times missed by NFL stars this preseason.
Jets’ offensive coordinator Tony Sparano called the Jets’ performance in their preseason opener as ‘vanilla.’
Jets fans saw it firsthand last night. No, not the Tim Tebow show. The main story last night was the Cincinnati Bengals, and the disasters that loom for all teams in preseason.
Tim Tebow picked up some yards by running around a few times. Other than that, there wasn’t much in his Jets debut. Certainly nothing to spark any mania back in New York.
After two weeks of practices, meetings, fisticuffs and a reported team trip to the movies, the Jets finally get to lock horns with another team.
It’s been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. That may have been the case at Bengals training camp this week. Or maybe not.
The Bengals know they’ll probably see plenty of Tim Tebow in Cincinnati — which was actually the site of his first NFL game: Denver’s preseason opener in 2010.
Tim Tebow is ready to play, and so are the rest of those chippy Jets.
With the NFL preseason schedule featuring six games tonight and both the Giants and the Jets in action tomorrow night, Boomer and Craig broached the subject of NFL replacement officials.
“You know, as a big guy, you never want to be running gassers,” said defensive end Mike DeVito. “No fight is worth running gassers.”
Jets coach Rex Ryan said Holmes is “obviously tender” and said the wide receiver told him “something about cartilage,” but wasn’t clear on the exact nature of the rib injury.
Fans are familiar with the exploits of the Packers, Patriots, Saints and 49ers. However, there are four teams that may be ready to jump up and challenge the league’s elite teams.
The New York Giants have been ranked third in the first-ever AP Pro32 NFL power rankings, a new pro football version of the AP Top 25 college football and basketball polls.
