Breaking Big Blue with Jordan Raanan

Just how bad is it for Big Blue? Former NFL player and current analyst Ross Tucker gives us the national perception of Eli Manning and the Giants.

The New York Giants are signing FB Elijhaa Penny off the Arizona Cardinals practice squad, per source. This after FB Shane Smith struggled badly on Sunday night. Penny is 234 pounds and played in 16 games last season.

Giants lose starter Halapio to broken ankle, leg

The New York Giants have lost starting center Jon Halapio for the season after he fractured his right ankle and leg Sunday in a loss to the Cowboys. Halapio's injury occurred in the third quarter when a pile of players fell on the back of his leg.

Giants starting center Jon Halapio broke his ankle and is out for the season, per sources. Bad luck. He had worked so hard to not only stick on a roster but become a starter. Was playing well. His loss another blow towards creating continuity on the Giants offensive line.

Cowboys' Prescott rises to 'challenge' vs. Giants

Dak Prescott avoided mistakes in the Cowboys' win over the Giants, going without an interception and was not sacked, days after Giants safety Landon Collins said their plan was to take Ezekiel Elliott out of the game in order to pressure Prescott.

Saquon Barkley tied the single game record for receptions by a rookie with 14, according to Elias. He now has 16 catches in two games. He's on pace for 128 receptions.

Again the Giants are 0-2 after they lost 20-13 to the Dallas Cowboys. This is the fifth time in six years they've dropped their first two games. It's trouble. Since the inception of the current playoff format, 88% of teams to start 0-2 miss the playoffs. Have to wonder where this Giants team is headed with an aging and ineffective quarterback behind a bad offensive line that allowed six sacks. It deems all their weapons mute.

Starting center Jon Halapio is being taken off on a cart with his right leg in an air cast. Tough break. Probably was their best lineman in the opener. John Greco is taking his place.

The Giants are shut out in the first half. They're down 10-0 to the Cowboys and now have one TD in 17 drives this season. They're reaching the end zone on 6% of their drives. That's worse than last year when they scored on 13.4% of their possessions, which was 30th in NFL per ESPN Stats and Info.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants ran eight pass plays in the first quarter. They left Ereck Flowers 1-on-1 (mostly against DeMarcus Lawrence) on all of them. He held his own. Much better start.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys didn't make many big plays in their opener. They already have three runs of 15 or more yards on their first two drives against the Giants.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants inactives: OLB Olivier Vernon QB Kyle Lauletta S Kamrin Moore CB Michael Jordan LB Tae Davis C Evan Brown C Spencer Pulley Only noticeable takeaway from this is that Alex Tanney remains the backup quarterback.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The only notable injury for the Giants is OLB Olivier Vernon. He's out with a high ankle sprain. Connor Barwin will start in his place.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Though Dallas is a 3-point favorite tonight in Vegas, FPI's predicted point differential is actually Dallas by 8.
