Giants Release Longtime DE/LB Mathius Kiwanuka

Giants Release Longtime DE/LB Mathius Kiwanuka Banana Stock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- After nine years with the team, the New York Giants have released defensive end/linebacker Mathius Kiwanuka. Kiwanuka was a member of two Super Bowl teams and amassed 38.5 sacks in his Giants career. "The thing that has always impressed me about Kiwi is how serious he is about the game," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said in a release. "He was always prepared and always in outstanding condition and played very hard." "And he had some nasty in him," he continued. "I always felt like you could count on certain things from him: eight [or] nine sacks, harass the quarterback, and you could move him around, inside, outside. He is dependable, reliable and there is no question about his professionalism. His character and professionalism and serious approach to the game will be missed." Now quarterback Eli Manning and long snapper Zak DeOssie are the only remaining members of the 2007 Super Bowl team. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. 

Former Giants Coach Sherman Passes Away at 91

Former Giants Coach Sherman Passes Away at 91 Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Allie Sherman, one of the most successful coaches in New York Giants franchise history, has passed away at 91 years of age. Sherman, who led New York to three championship games, died Saturday in his home in Manhattan. Before becoming a head coach, Sherman played four seasons;  in 1943 with the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Steagles, a two-team merger as a result of World War II, then the remaining three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a two-way player, at both quarterback and defensive back. Upon taking the advice of Hall of Fame coach Earl Neale, Sherman entered into coaching, getting his start with New Jersey's Paterson Panthers. The next season he joined the Giants as a defensive backs coach and then spent several seasons as head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.   Sherman would gain the top job for the Giants in 1961 and led the team to the title game three straight years, losing to the Green Bay Packers in '61 and '62, then to the Bears in 1963.  After his coaching career, Sherman worked alongside Chris Berman at ESPN as an analyst in 1987. Sherman was born in Brooklyn in 1923. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Odell Beckham Jr. Obliterates Redskins

Odell Beckham Jr. Obliterates Redskins Win McNamee/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Giants found a gem with their first round pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Odell Beckham Jr. racked up 143 yards on 12 catches, including three touchdowns, Sunday on way to a Giants 24-13 victory. Beckham had a fourth that was negated because of a holding penalty. After missing the first four games of the season, Beckham has quickly racked up 71 catches for 972 yards and nine touchdowns.   "I don't want to get his head too big right now, but he has a lot of skill," Eli Manning said. "You hope he keeps working and grinding and doing the little things to correct. There is still room for improvement." Colt McCoy got the start for the Redskins but quickly exited after re-injuring his neck on the opening series.  Robert Griffin III entered and found a groove early. He found Christian Thompson for a nine yard touchdown early in the second quarter. Griffin nearly found the end zone again when he called his own number but after an official replay was ruled to have fumbled the ball before crossing the pylon. The Redskins seemed to go into a funk after that play. Griffin finished 18 of 27 for 236 yards. "It's not been a fun year," Griffin said. "We've had a lot of turmoil, a lot of things going on. At the end of the day, you suit up and when your number's called, be ready to play." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Jaguars Rally to Beat Giants, 25-24

Jaguars Rally to Beat Giants, 25-24 Scott Boehm/Getty Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- Despite trailing 21-0 in the first half, the Jacksonville Jaguars rallied and defeated the New York Giants 25-24 on a late Josh Scobee field goal on Sunday. The Jaguars (2-10) forced three fumbles in the win, returning two of them for touchdowns. The Giants (3-10) got on the board first when Rashad Jennings scored on the first play of the second quarter, running in from two yards out. New York added another score less than four minutes later as Eli Manning found Preston Parker for a three yard touchdown strike. Jennings then rumbled for another touchdown, this one from 17 yards out, to put the Giants up 21-0 with 6:30 to play in the half. Jacksonville finally scored when Scobee knocked home a 28-yard field goal just before the two minute warning. That was the start of 22 unanswered points for the Jaguars, helping to complete the comeback. Aiding in the effort was a pair of New York fumbles. Geno Hayes stripped Manning early in the third quarter and J.T. Thomas recovered in the endzone to make it a 21-10 Giants lead. After the defense was able to hold off the Giants again, Blake Bortles found Marqise Lee for a 30 yard touchdown to bring the Jaguars within one possession. New York looked to drive and regain momentum, but a Larry Donnell fumbled was picked up Aaron Colvin and returned 41 yards for a touchdown. A failed two-point conversion put Jacksonville ahead 22-21 with just under 13 minutes left in regulation. The Giants took the lead back on a Josh Brown 33-yard field goal with 3:26 remaining. Jacksonville's offense powered through, going 55 yards in three minutes, culminating in a 43-yard field goal from Scobee to take a 25-24 advantage. Manning was stripped on the next play, the third fumble of the day for New York, ultimately ending the game. Despite the two fumbles, Manning was 24-for-34 passing for 247 yards and one touchdown while Jennings ran for 91 yards and two scores. Jacksonville was paced by 194 passing yards from Bortles, one touchdown and 68 rushing yards.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Giants’ Cornerback Prince Amukamara Likely to Miss the Rest of the Season

Giants’ Cornerback Prince Amukamara Likely to Miss the Rest of the Season Scott Boehm/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- The New York Giants defense has taken another hit as cornerback Prince Amukamara could miss the rest of the season after suffering a biceps injury. Amukamara had to leave the game in the second quarter of the team's loss against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night. "Normally that's surgery," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said. "There is a lot of concern," Coughlin continued. "We've lost a player or two in each game, it seems like. That's not a good one. Prince was playing well. He did a very nice job tonight, and that was a blow to lose him." Now in his fourth NFL season, Amukamara was playing some of the best football of his career this season prior to the injury. In eight games this season, Amukamara has 45 tackles and three interceptions. With the Giants defense already among the NFL's worst, this is a big loss for the team. The Giants are tied for 20th in the NFL in total defense, while ranking 28th in the league in pass defense. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio 

Colts Trample Giants Behind Luck’s Four Touchdowns

Colts Trample Giants Behind Luck’s Four Touchdowns Joe Robbins/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to go along with 354 passing yards as the Indianapolis Colts rolled over the New York Giants, 40-24, on Monday night. It was the seventh straight game that Luck tossed for more than 300 yards, a franchise record. The scoring started off slow for Luck and the Colts (6-3), settling for a solitary Adam Vinatieri field goal in the first quarter. Indy's offense got going in the second when Luck found Coby Fleener for a 32-yard touchdown pass to make it a 10-0 game. Three of Luck's scoring throws went for more than 30 yards, with all four going to a different receiver. While the offense was firing on all cylinders, the Colts' defense kept New York (3-5) off-balance all night, sending them to their third straight loss. The Giants struggled to find a rhythm, scoring only a field goal in the first half. They were able to cut the lead to 23-10 on an Andre Williams 1-yard touchdown run, but the Colts responded with 17 straight points to put the game out of reach. Manning finished the day with 359 passing yards and two touchdowns, although both scoring throws came late in the fourth quarter. Luck used nine different receivers during the game, with Fleener catching four passes for a team-high 77 yards. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

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. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

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. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

"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."

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.

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. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
