Nah. The Giants' offensive line is brutal. Manning was sacked five times and at least a couple of those were thanks to Flowers, a former Miami standout. With the opening of the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, as well as the monetary commitments for sponsorships at the stadium, the franchise has increased 16 percent in value from previous year.

Still, a prime-time game against the Giants could have been a different story.

Later in the quarter, another Giants fourth down try inside the Detroit 30-yard line failed when a pass to Beckham fell incomplete. This is the eighth straight game since last season that NY has failed to score over 20 points. "I'm all right", Beckham said.

Matthew Stafford is making the leap from very good quarterback to a great franchise quarterback in front of our eyes.

With an 0-2 start at his back, with a stagnant offense in his hands, with a second straight week of so many questions and so few answers, that was the best the second-year Giants' head coach could do to questions about potential changes in personnel or the possibility of giving up the play-calling duties, saying to both, "We'll consider everything".

Manning faced heavy pressure for most of the night.

"We put this game on me", said Giants coach Ben McAdoo, who saw his team flop not just on special teams, but on offense and defense as well while falling to 0-2. "As a defense, we shouldn't be giving up 17 points when we know how we are struggling on the other side of the ball". We're not comparing teams in fantasy football.

"We've got to score more", Manning said.

Manning completed 22 of 32 passes for 239 passing yards and one touchdown, an 18-yard connection to the rookie tight end Evan Engram. And now the Giants have real problems with little hope of solving them.

"Whether [the defense has been] good or not, we've got to find a way to win", cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said.

So much for Odell Beckham Jr. riding in on his white horse to save the New York Giants' offense. A holding call moved the Giants back and even though going for it on fourth and goal from the 2 was the wrong call at the time - McAdoo did go for the field goal after the delay - just the inability to get the play off or call timeout was indicative of all that has gone wrong for t the Giants so far. "Not going in the right direction enough, going backward, not converting on third downs enough". Eli Manning threw for just 220 yards and an interception.

But then, when explaining what happened when the Giants were hit with a delay of game penalty when he made a decision to go for it on fourth down with five minutes left in the third quarter down by 10 points, he wasn't putting this on himself anymore. "Go home. come back in tomorrow, watch some film, rehab, prehab, get right, short week, short memory, new game on Sunday". It was the fifth-longest punt return in team history.

Now New York, which went 11-5 last season and made the playoffs, needs to get its offense going in a hurry.
