The New York Giants unleashed their newest weapon, Odell Beckham, Jr., and the rookie speedster was certainly worth the wait. Beckham caught his first NFL pass, as well as his first NFL touchdown, and provided a much-needed offensive lift. After a mediocre first half, the Giants’ defense clamped down on Matt Ryan and company, and New York won going away, 30-20, at MetLife Stadium.
Whatever elixir the New York Giants drank between weeks two and three of the NFL regular season should be saved for future use. Not only did the team even its record at 2-2 over the past two weeks; they also have become healthier than we have seen in several seasons. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons come into MetLife Stadium sporting the same 2-2 record but with a fistful of question marks, especially across the offensive line.
Going against one of the NFL’s best is a sure way to get a player motivated. It’s one of the reasons the New York Giants defense is ready for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons at MetLife Stadium.
The Atlanta Falcons (2-2) crashed and burned in a road loss to the Minnesota Vikings 41-28 on Sunday, amid a plethora of injuries. The New York Giants (2-2), on the other hand, come into this week’s contest relatively healthy and riding a two game winning streak.
Matt Ryan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns, Julio Jones hauled in nine passes for 161 yards and a couple of scores, and Devin Hester set an NFL record with his 20th return for a TD as the Falcons routed the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers 56-14.

The Giants failed to answer the bell as they were steamrolled by the Falcons 34-0.
You can look at the standings and get a pretty good read on the teams that are going to be in the playoffs at the conclusion of the year. But several of those teams still have a lot to prove.
