The New York Giants held their first padded practice of the week on Monday morning. And once they got out on the field Womens Sterling Shepard Jersey , things started to look even more like football than they had earlier in training camp. With their annual preseason game against the New York Jets — which is always the third preseason game — looming, the Giants will be treating this week more like a regular season game week than previous preseason weeks. That means that they will be game-planning specifically for the Jets, which showed on Monday when the starting defense practiced against a scout team offense. On the practice fieldTeam periodThe Giants got started in their team period with Eli Manning connecting with Evan Engram on what appears to be a variation on a “sail concept”. That concept uses a vertical route and two crossing routes to overload one side of the defense while giving the quarterback an easy three-level read. The design is clever, putting the shallow and intermediate routes on the opposite side of the field from the vertical route. But then the defense seemed to take over.And in a note on B.W. Webb at slot corner, he has had some success there in a limited sample size. Meanwhile, Donte Deayon is back on the field for the Giants’ padded practice. This was a strong practice for the Giants’ defense, who outright dominated the offense at times.Shurmur said after practice on Sunday afternoon that the team would actively game-plan for the Jets Authentic Evan Engram Jersey , getting in to the habit as they look ahead to the Jacksonville Jaguars. We have our first confirmation of that.The second-team offense did get a couple shots in, including this from Davis Webb to fullback Shane Smith. Smith hasn’t had a big impact on the box score in either preseason game, but that he is showing that he can be useful in the passing game is helping his chances to make the final 53-man roster.The defense had a strong finish to a strong practice with Alec Ogletree picking off Eli Manning in coverage down the field. After practice, Saquon Barkley, and other Giants, met with fans and signed autographs. Personnel notesNew addition Jhurell Pressley and Wayne Gallman were the second-team running backs this practice. Donte Deayon is back on the field in full pads after missing time with a hamstring injury. Also, Curtis Riley remains the starting free safety while B.W. Webb ran with the starters as the slot corner. After last week's last-second loss against Carolina Authentic Eli Manning Jersey , Giants coach Pat Shurmur said he was "done" talking about Odell Beckham Jr. and his critical comments about the team.Six games into his first season, Shurmur still can't shake the OBJ questions. It's talk of a postseason push that's gone silent.The Giants are 1-5 and in last place in the NFC East after a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night that featured Beckham marching to the locker room before the end of the first half and slamming his head into a giant cooling fan during a second-half fit.Shurmur said Beckham went to the locker room early because of cramps. Beckham said his headbutt was a bit of self-motivation."I was just trying to get myself going," he said. "I felt like some of those plays where I was getting myself going was some of my best stuff. So I was just trying to get myself fired up. I did that and it helped me."Beckham bemoaned the lack of downfield passes from quarterback Eli Manning and the team's subpar energy following a 33-31 loss to Carolina.The Giants were counting on a prime-time visit from the Super Bowl champs to get their season turned around.Instead, poor pass protection, inconsistent offense and costly penalties have left the Giants reeling.The Eagles' game plan on Thursday was to contain Beckham. He had six catches for 44 yards and his longest reception was 12 yards.The Giants' mistakes started early against the Eagles. Manning was intercepted on the opening drive of the game, and they took advantage for a touchdown.Later in the quarter, Manning was sacked at his 1 and the Giants were forced to punt. The Eagles took advantage of the favorable field position and drove for another touchdown and a 14-3.When the Giants added a field goal to get within 14-6 Womens Connor Barwin Jersey , the defense allowed a touchdown on the next Eagles possession.The Eagles, who entered the game at 2-3, had not scored more than 23 points in a game this season entering Thursday.But they managed 24 in the opening half.The Giants' offense continued its struggles on third downs. They didn't convert a third down until their opening drive of the second half. It was the first time in 16 tries they converted on third down going back to Week 4. The finished 4 of 14. The Eagles were 9 of 16 on third downs."They converted on third downs," Shurmur said. "When you're that good on third downs and you can stay on the field, you can give yourself a chance."The biggest bright spot for the Giants was rookie running back Saquon Barkley. He had 13 carries for 130 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown. And he added nine receptions for 99 yards, including a spectacular 55-yarder where he eluded several would-be tacklers. He's the second player in NFL history to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first six career games.However Authentic Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , the rest of the Giants' offense struggled as they couldn't consistently sustain long drives."We beat ourselves. Every time I looked up I felt like there was a yellow flag somewhere. We can't have that," Beckham said. "There's no way we're going to beat good teams with doing that."Manning was 24 for 43 for 281 yards and was sacked four times.And the Giants have the same record as they did last year when they finished 3-13. And they have to wait to make up any ground since they don't play again until facing the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22."1-5 is not where we want to be. I'm not happy about it, and I'm frustrated like everybody," Manning said. "All we can do is worry about the next game."
