Offense can't find rhythm in loss to Lions

The Lions offensive line is shaky, with Greg Robinson, the former No. 2 overall pick from Auburn, filling in at left tackle for Taylor Decker (shoulder).

In the second quarter, the defense forced and then recovered a fumble by Stafford, who was sacked and stripped of the ball by defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. They didn't see any extra meaning how dominant they had been against a team that made the playoffs previous year - and had handled them fairly well a season ago at MetLife Stadium.

The Giants got Odell Beckham Jr. back. He was limited to just four catches for 36 yards. The dynamic wide receiver sprained his left ankle in a preseason game on August 21 and then missed New York's season-opening loss at Dallas last weekend.

Ben McAdoo needs to turn over the play calling to Mike Sullivan once and for all and then maybe then we will see more than single digits on the scoreboard every game. Good thinking by Stafford to invoke his name! Time has shown that this is no longer the case. "Obviously he saw something and was trying to get a change in".

Agnew's Lions improved to 2-0 while Munson's Giants fell to 0-2.

Manning faced heavy pressure for most of the night.

Ereck Flowers get victimized nearly every week. "Initially, we were focusing on the other side". "For us, we're on a short week playing a Super Bowl runner-up". He ended up holding up and doing a nice job. Manning is completing a lot of passes - 72.9% - but the majority of them are dump-offs.

There is no clear way out of this mess for the Giants, whose best player (Beckham) is not fully healthy, and whose most maligned player (Flowers) has no real alternative on the roster.

Haloti Ngata started off the sack lunch party on the Giants' first possession, and rookie Jarrad Davis got in on the action with a suplex - I mean sack - of Giants quarterback Eli Manning last in the first quarter.

Agnew then helped clinch the game for Detroit with his big return with 12:56 left, faking out NY punter Brad Wing on his way to the end zone. Somehow, Manning didn't get the snap off in time, NY was penalized five yards, and the team wound up settling for the field goal anyway. "We're going backward. We're not converting on third downs enough".

The Giants trailed by 10 with about five minutes left in the third quarter but had a chance to get back in the game with the ball at the Lions' two-yard line on fourth and goal.

"We got down there close, on the 1-yard line and we got a penalty and we got a delay of game at the end", Manning said. Not unlike the Eagles, the offense can't/won't run the football, averaging 3.4 yards on 18 attempts against the Lions. Manning had his best game throwing the football in the playoff loss to Green Bay in the freezing cold, but he has not thrown it well so far this season. "We've got to find a way to get better and get better in a hurry". "We wanted to be smart with him in his first game back".
