Beckham practices on limited basis, closer to playing

Eli Manning is looking to overcome last weeks game in Dallas and shine in the home opener:EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. The game took 2:48, the fastest Giants game in almost four years, since they beat the Packers 27-13 on November 17, 2013, a game that breezed along in 2:45. If Manning has learned anything in his 14-year career, it's that one game does not a season make.

"It's a matter of getting to the point where you know you are confident in it (the ankle) and it is confident in itself", he said. While it's true a great finish will eviscerate the memory of a poor start, it's not ordained to happen.

When consulting the waiver wire, it can be easy to get overly excited when you see an unrecognizable player score three times their projected points and believe you have found a diamond in the rough. This might be the case again if Beckham misses the game against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football. When people say any back can run behind a talented offensive line, plays like this are hard proof of the contrary. "Execute a little bit better". Manning is a good enough quarterback to get him the ball early and often when he's on target. In the first half of the Cowboys game, Manning overthrew a wide-open Marshall. It's part of losing a game. "They're going to protect the quarterbacks in this league and you can't hit them after it's out of there". You're going to get coached up and there's things we can clean up, for sure, but you can't get defensive, can't get sensitive.

Two important notes here: One, there wasn't much space despite the fact Pierre-Paul sold out on the outside pass rush because Elliott was wrapped up by B.J. Goodson before he got to the line of scrimmage; and Two, that cut to the outside covered over five yards, which is an incredible feat in itself, but another factor in just how hard this play was to make. The combination of running backs Paul Perkins and Orleans Darkwa weren't good, not with seven and three rushing attempts respectively, their 30 combined yards a mere fraction of Ezekiel Elliott's 104.

"I was so proud of the energy, the aggressiveness that our entire team showed, on both sided of the ball, even special teams" said Jones. "And I think if we get to OT, we would have finished it off, but we didn't get that chance".
