Giants Collect Four Keenum Picks; Top Rams in London 17-10

Los Angeles Rams v New York Giants

The Giants capitalized on four interceptions of Case Keenum to defeat the Los Angeles Rams 17-10 Sunday in the first NFL game played at London’s home of English rugby, a sold-out and raucous Twickenham Stadium.

Keenum, coming off the best start of his career, had the Rams at the Giants’ 15-yard line with 50 seconds left when he lobbed a pass in the left corner of the end zone that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie easily picked off. Keenum’s intended target, Brian Quick, failed to get the quarterback’s audible and cut off his route early.

Keenum, who finished 32 of 53 for 291 yards and one touchdown, has thrown an interception on the Rams’ final offensive play of the last three games. That likely will fuel debate on a potential quarterback change to overall No. 1 draft pick Jared Goff.

Fisher said he had no intention of switching quarterbacks during the bye week.

Giants Bringing in Robbie Gould at Kicker with Josh Brown Not Going to London

Robbie Gould

With Josh Brown not going to London with the Giants, the team will need a new kicker, and the team is going to bring in former Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould.

The Giants released a statement regarding Brown today, who will be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Rams.

“The Giants do not condone or excuse any form of domestic violence. Josh has acknowledged that he has issues in his life and has been working on these issues through therapy and counseling for a long period of time,” the team said. “We remain supportive of Josh and his efforts.”

Gould is the all-time Bears leading scorer, and likely could wind up on the roster for weeks based on how things seem to be going with Brown at this point.

Giants Kicker Josh Brown May Face Indefinite Suspension After Latest Allegations

Josh Brown

Giants kicker Josh Brown was at practice Thursday, but he may be facing an indefinite suspension after the newest domestic violence allegations levied against him, James Kratch of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

And at the very least, he is now back under NFL investigation.

According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, the NFL and Giants are discussing that option after police documents emerged that show Brown apparently admitting in writing to emotionally and physically abusing his wife.

Brown was suspended for the first game of this season due to a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy stemming from a May 22, 2015 domestic violence arrest after an altercation with his wife.

The Giants were not aware of the documents and their contents until news broke Wednesday night, a team spokesman told NJ Advance Media. The NFL released the following statement Thursday, saying they will re-open their investigation into the allegations:

NFL investigators made repeated attempts—both orally and in writing—to obtain any and all evidence and relevant information in this case from the King County Sheriff’s Office. Each of those requests was denied and the Sheriff’s Office declined to provide any of the requested information, which ultimately limited our ability to fully investigate this matter. We concluded our own investigation, more than a year after the initial incident, based on the facts and evidence available to us at the time and after making exhaustive attempts to obtain information in a timely fashion. It is unfortunate that we did not have the benefit or knowledge of these materials at the time.

In light of the release of these documents yesterday, we will thoroughly review the additional information and determine next steps in the context of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy. We will not be making any comments on potential discipline until that time.

According to Cole, an indefinite suspension would be based on the precedent set by the NFL’s prior handling of domestic violence cases involving ex-Rutgers star Ray Rice, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and controversial defensive end Greg Hardy.

Late Big Play By Beckham Jr. Leads Giants Over Ravens 27-23

Baltimore Ravens v New York Giants

A banged-up Odell Beckham Jr. turned a short fourth-and-1 pass into a winning 66-yard catch and run with 1:24 to play Sunday as the Giants snapped a three-game losing streak with a stunning 27-23 victory over the hurting Ravens.

The win was the 700th in franchise history. Beckham gave it to the Giants with a career day despite going to the locker room with a hip pointer in the second quarter. Beckham returned before the half and made the Giants (3-3) a winner with a spectacular second half. It featured a 75-yard touchdown catch and a 43-yard reception that set up one of Josh Brown’s two field goals.

The Ravens (3-3) lost their third straight.

Beckham finished with eight catches for 222 yards. His late heroics saved the Giants, who were on the verge of a fourth straight loss after Terrance West scored on a 2-yard run with a 2:04 to play, giving the Ravens a short-lived 23-20 lead.

Bet On The Giants To Win The NFC East

Defense, as the old saying goes, wins championships and the New York Giants have certainly improved in that regard this season.

The Giants, only four weeks into the season, have shown early signs of snapping a four-year playoff drought.

It’s no secret the Giants had to improve its defense after finishing last in the NFL in total yards and passing yards allowed in 2015.

The team made a huge splash in free agency in the off-season, signing defensive end Olivier Vernon, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and defensive tackle Damon Harrison. The moves have paid early dividends for the Giants, who have improved their defensive ranking from 24th in the league to 11th after four weeks of action. New York’s stingy run defense is currently ranked ninth in the NFL.

“We went into free agency hoping to find help to improve our defense,” Giants general manager Jerry Reese told the team’s official website.


The race for first in the NFC East will come down to three teams — the Giants, Cowboys and Eagles. The Dallas Cowboys, despite suffering a setback with the loss of oft-injured quarterback Tony Romo and star wide receiver Dez Bryant, have stayed in the race early on but will fade as the season progresses. The Washington Redskins lack the offensive weapons to keep pace with their division rivals. Bovada have set a +220 line the Giants will come out on top in the NFC East, with only the Eagles (+200) having a better shot. This is a bet you should jump all over.

The Giants are 1-1 against division opponents so far this season and look forward to two crucial matchups against the Eagles on Nov. 6 and Dec. 22. The games will have huge playoff implications and probably determine which team wins the NFC East.


The Giants won’t have to rely solely on its defense to win games either. Not when you have arguably the best wide receiver in the league and human highlight reel Odell Beckham Jr. leading the charge. If he can keep his testy temperament in check, Beckham Jr. has the ability to take the Giants to the promise land.

We’re all getting used to the Eli Manning/Beckham connection, evinced further by the Giants’ fourth-ranked passing yards. have a +5000 line that Beckham Jr. will be named most valuable player, a bet to consider if the star wide receiver can channel his sometimes misplaced passion. Heading into the season, the online sportsbook also had a +1000 line that Beckham Jr. would lead the league in receiving yards in 2016, another bet you’ll want to mull over.

The return of the best salsa dancer in the NFL — Victor Cruz — has also boosted the Giants’ passing game. Cruz missed the entire 2015-16 campaign with serious knee and calf injuries, but hasn’t showed signs of rust thus far.


With the Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers all faltering in the early stages of the season, the NFC is definitely wide open. That leaves the door open for the Giants, who very well could come out as NFC champions when all is said and done.

According to Bovada, Green Bay is still the favorite, at +400, to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Write the Giants, who are pegged +1400 to win the NFC championship, off at your own peril. Manning has taken the Giants from a Wild Card team to Super Bowl champion in the past and it isn’t farfetched — even at this stage of the quarterback’s career — to say he could repeat that same improbable feat.

The top four Super Bowl favorites haven’t changed too much — with New England still at the top at +350 according to Bet365. However, various online sportsbooks have mixed lines for the Giants. While Bet365 has New York pegged at +3300, BetOnline gives the G-Men +2000 odds to win their third Super Bowl title in eight years.

It’s going to be a good year for the Giants, who will be making a return to the postseason for the first time since 2012. You can bet on it!
