Murray Breaks Record as Cowboys Beat Giants 31-21

Murray Breaks Record as Cowboys Beat Giants 31-21

NFL via Getty Images(DALLAS) -- DeMarco Murray continues to lead the charge as he rushed for his seventh straight 100-yard game.

In doing so, Murray broke Jim Brown's 56-year-old record of starting a season with six straight 100-yard games.

The Cowboys continue to showcase a balanced offense that they have lacked in recent years.

Tony Romo tossed three touchdowns on 279 yards passing, completing 17 of 23 passes. Second-year tight end Gavin Escobar reeled in two of Romo's touchdown passes. Dez Bryant is still a man on fire as he racked up 151 yards receiving.

After a scare in the second quarter in which Murray appeared to injure his ankle, he finished the day with 128 yards and one touchdown. 

Eli Manning put forth a valiant effort but it would not be enough to outduel Dallas.  Manning threw for 248 yards and three touchdowns. Rookie receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. continues to live up to his first round draft status as he hauled in two of Manning's touchdowns.

The Dallas Cowboys are now at 6-1 and host the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football next week.

Giants Suffer Big Blow in Loss to Eagles

Giants Suffer Big Blow in Loss to Eagles

NFL via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Giants were shut out by the Philadelphia Eagles 27-0 during Sunday night's football game.

That wasn't the worst news as wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a knee injury on a non-contact play in the third quarter. Cruz immediately grabbed his knee and could be seen fighting off tears.

It is believed that Cruz tore the patellar tendon in his right knee. 

Quarterback Eli Manning was harrassed all night by the Eagles defense, and was sacked six times.  The Giants could not find a rhythm all night as they could only muster 253 yards of total offense.

The Eagles soared as Nick Foles completed two touchdown passes, both to his tight ends; James Casey and Zach Ertz.  Philadelphia also ran over the Giants as LeSean McCoy rushed for 149 yards on 22 carries.

Giants Put Away the Redskins, 45-14

Giants Put Away the Redskins, 45-14

Elsa/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The New York Giants offense was better than expected as the team took apart the Washington Redskins on Thursday night, 45-14.

Quarterback Eli Manning had his best game of the early season. Manning went 28 for 39 with 300 passing yards, throwing four touchdowns, and running for another.

Despite the big game for Manning, the star for the Giants was arguably un-drafted free agent tight end Larry Donnell. On Thursday night, he hauled in seven catches for 54 yards, including three touchdowns.

"That was the whole thing, to be able to leave here tonight and be 2-2 and 1-0 in the division. That was huge," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said. "It's exciting to be in the hunt, and by being able to come out of here with a win, hopefully we have a chance to be."

As well as Manning played, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins struggled mightily. In his second start of the season, Cousins completed just 19 of 33 passes for 257 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.

Victor Cruz Scores First Touchdown at MetLife, Giants Beat Texans

NFL via Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- The New York Giants earned their first win of the season, defeating the Houston Texans 30-17 on Sunday.

The Giants took advantage of three Ryan Fitzpatrick interceptions and methodically moved the ball against the Texans all day.

Eli Manning returned to form, throwing for 234 yards and two touchdowns. 

Victor Cruz capitalized on the Texans defense, hauling in five passes, including a 61-yard reception and his first touchdown at MetLife Stadium, which gave the Giants a 7-0 lead in the second quarter.

Despite the stifling front seven of the Texans, led by J.J. Watt, Giants running back Rashad Jennings gashed Houston all day, running for 176 yards and a touchdown.

New York has a quick turnaround as they travel to face their division rival Washington Redskins on Thursday night.

Giants Hope to Avoid 0-3 Start

Giants Hope to Avoid 0-3 Start

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Giants (0-2) hope to turn around a tough start to the season on Sunday against the Houston Texans (2-0).

"You treat every game as a must-win," Giants quarterback Eli Manning said. "You don't want to put any extra pressure on guys, but we know we've got to get things going. We have to start playing better football."

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is well aware of Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who also scored his first career touchdown in their win last week against the Raiders.

"He's a very good football player," Coughlin said of Watt.  "Very energetic, they move him around, they play him in different spots, comes off the ball very well.  There's no doubt people have to be aware of where he is."

New York opened last season with a 0-6 start.

Lions Roll Past Giants on Monday Night

Lions Roll Past Giants on Monday Night

Leon Halip/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson twice in the first quarter for touchdowns and never looked back in the Lions 35-14 win over the New York Giants on Monday night.

Stafford passed for 346 yards with two touchdown passes to Johnson in the victory.

"I don't work on my moves a lot during practice, but I know I have to be better with my feet this year so that we can keep plays alive," Stafford said. "On both of the touchdown passes to Calvin, the offensive line got me a lot of time, and he was able to uncover himself and find somewhere open."

Johnson finished with seven receptions, 163 yards, and the two early touchdowns.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who had a career high 27 interceptions last season, added two on opening night and was 18 of 33 for 163 yards with a touchdown.

"No excuses. We played very poorly," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We don't have a lot to be proud of here. Couldn't move the ball, couldn't stop them, turned the ball over, got into that business again. Got a punt blocked, so you name it. It was a nightmare performance."

Giants Beat Buffalo in Hall of Fame Game

Giants Beat Buffalo in Hall of Fame Game

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(CANTON, Ohio) -- Backup quarterback Ryan Nassib connected with rookie wide receiver Corey Washington on a 73-yard strike in the fourth quarter to help give the New York Giants a 17-13 win over the Buffalo Bills in the preseason-opening Hall of Fame game.

The Giants (1-0) debuted their new offense, courtesy of first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo, and showed off a balanced attack. Most impressive was the combination of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams in the backfield. The rookie Williams led the Giants with 43 rushing yards on seven carries. His best run, a 21-yard scamper, led to New York's first touchdown of the night and gave them a 7-3 first quarter lead.

Buffalo (0-1) countered with a two-yard pass from Jeff Teul to Robert Woods in the second quarter before heading into halftime tied at 10-10. The Bills then took the lead on a Dan Carpenter field goal and held that advantage until Nassib and Washington connected.

Starting quarterback Eli Manning was 6-for-7 in three series for 43 yards but lost a fumble. EJ Manuel struggled in his two series, completing just two passes for only 19 yards.

Giants RB David Wilson to See Neck Specialist

Giants RB David Wilson to See Neck Specialist

Wesley Hitt/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) --  New York Giants running back David Wilson's bounce-back season is off to a rough start.

Wilson left Tuesday's training camp practice with a neck injury and underwent a battery of tests.  He is expected to miss at least a week. 

"We were all praying that it would not be an issue, that he would be able to come back and go to work," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Tuesday. "But we'll see."

Instead of playing in Sunday's preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills, Wilson will stay in New York and be examined by Dr. Frank Cammisa at the Hospital for Special Surgery.  Cammisa is the same specialist who performed season-ending spinal fusion surgery on Wilson after Week 5 to correct a disk problem in his neck in 2013.

The Giants drafted Wilson in the first-round of the 2012 NFL draft.  He was cleared for full contact back on July 21 and was practicing normally with the team before the injury occurred.

Chris Snee Reportedly Set to Announce Retirement

Chris Snee Reportedly Set to Announce Retirement

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Chris Snee is reportedly ready to hang up his cleats and shoulder pads. A source close to the New York Giants lineman says he has scheduled a meeting for Monday morning with team officials to tell them he's considering retiring.

While his final decision is not 100% made, the 32-year-old would not be able to start the season on time anyway thanks to a longer than expected recovery from elbow surgery in November.

After missing the team's minicamp in June because of the extended rehab, New York and Snee each began weighing their options. The Giants gave the majority of reps to third-year player Brandon Mosley while also letting their second-round pick, Weston Richburg, see some time.

Snee, a four-time Pro Bowler, could be entering his 11th season as an offensive lineman for the Giants.

Snee played just three games in 2013 and was placed on injured reserve on October 4 due to an ailing hip injury. The 2004 draft pick out of Boston College helped the Giants to two Super Bowls in his 10-year career. He is also the son-in-law of Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

Giants’ Jon Beason Fractures Foot, May Miss Season Opener

Giants’ Jon Beason Fractures Foot, May Miss Season Opener

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Giants defensive players continue to drop like flies. This time linebacker Jon Beason injured his right foot during OTAs, suffering a ligament tear and a small fracture.

Beason will be further inspected by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Unfortunately for Beason and the Giants, his status for the team's season-opener Sept. 8 against Detroit Lions is up in the air.

"The prognosis is 'X' amount of time and [the Sept. 8 opener] is within that time frame," Beason said in a statement. "I expect to be back [for that game]. If not, I'll be back as soon as I can. That's really how you have to look at it. If it's not 16 [games played], maybe it's 15 or 14. Whatever it is, you want it to be that number as opposed to one."

After struggling with injuries with the Carolina Panthers, the Giants traded for the former Pro Bowler. He then played like his old self, making 93 tackles for the club in 12 games.

The Giants resigned Beason to a three-year deal worth $16.8 million earlier in the offseason.

Giants Safety Will Hill Suspended 6 Games by the NFL

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for the first six games of the 2014 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Hill tried to appeal the decision, but was ultimately denied. The NFL could have suspended him for the entire season, so he is fortunate that his suspension was merely six games.

This is Hill's third suspension by the NFL. In October 2012, Hill was suspended by the league for testing positive for a performance enhancing subject which was later revealed as adderall.

The third came back in 2013 when Hill was suspended four games for violating the substance-abuse policy. He admitted the positive test was for marijuana.

Despite his immense talent, Hill has had trouble staying on the field during his brief NFL career.

In 12 games for the Giants last season, Hill recorded 77 tackles along with two interceptions.

Other than the initial announcement, the Giants declined further comment on the situation.

Giants Release Quarterback Josh Freeman

Giants Release Quarterback Josh Freeman

Marc Serota/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Josh Freeman era is already over in New York as the Giants have cut the quarterback just six weeks after signing him as a backup to starter Eli Manning.

With Manning back practicing at OTA's the team now has three healthy quarterbacks in he, Curtis Painter, and Ryan Nassib.

Not too long ago, Freeman was considered one of the up-and-coming stars in the NFL after he was selected in the first-round of the 2009 Draft out of Kansas State by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Last season, he feuded with head coach Greg Schiano before he was ultimately released mid-season. He wound up signing with the Minnesota Vikings, but started just one game for the team, which happen to come against the Giants.

Freeman's lack of ability to learn the Vikings offense did him in with Minnesota, and reportedly, Freeman had trouble picking up the Giants offense as well.

 Still just 26-years-old, Freeman has thrown 80 touchdowns during his career, but has also thrown 67 interceptions.
