Odell Beckham Jr. Officially Ruled Active For Tonight's Giants vs. Lions Game

Don't get me wrong, I personally love Ben McAdoo as the Giants head coach.

This has an effect on the defense, as they are continuously on the field and that leads to fatigue and mental mistakes. Their offensive line is a mess and quarterback Eli Manning was constantly under pressure in the loss to the Cowboys.

Detroit QB Matthew Stafford, meanwhile, threw for two touchdowns, while rookie Jamal Agnew put the icing on the win with an 88-yard punt return in the fourth quarter.

Miscues, blown assignments and bad play calling all led the Giants to another poor showing to start the season, a season with so much promise that now appears on the brink of collapse.

His 36 receiving yards were third on the team in New York's 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions. He hasn't had meaningful snaps since 2015 (his rookie season), but his -0.03 Rushing NEP per attempt from that year was just about league average (-0.04). Manning, who had been sacked four times in the first half, was dragged down in the pocket again on the second play of the second half.

Unfortunately for the Giants - and specifically Eli Manning - these impassioned defenses of Flowers are equally as effective as his pass protection.

He finished third in the National Football League in both receptions (101) and receiving yards (1,367) last season, but sat out the Giants' season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

"Since the National Football League went to 12 playoff teams in 1990, only 12 percent of teams to start season 0-2 went on to make the playoffs", noted ESPN's Adam Schefter.

On the Lions' second touchdown, Stafford used his feet to buy time in the backfield. "I think our guys overall did a nice job".

WOEFUL OFFENSE: The Giants now have gone eight straight games scoring 19 or less fewer.

Eli Manning completed 29 passes for 198 yards, with only two passes going for more than 20 yards with the Cowboys playing a soft zone to keep NY from going deep.

"Ereck is a young player, I thought he did some good things in the ballgame", McAdoo said. After a rough start to the game, the Lions scored 20 unanswered points to end up winning, 35-23. Engram finished with 4 catches for 49 yards and a touchdown.

Further proof of the line's struggles is seen in the fact that the Giants averaged just 3.4 yards per carry.

So, what can we expect when the two meet under the Monday night lights?

The win/loss record between the Giants and the Lions is 21-21-1!
