New York Giants headlines for Wednesday, 10/28.

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to follow for your Wednesday work day.

Odell Beckham: "Very explosive, very dynamic" offense to break out soon

In the Giants' last two games, the Big Blue offense hasn't been moving down the field like it had in the first few weeks of the season. New York quarterback Eli Manning has struggled recently, unable to reach 200 yards passing, as well as throwing more interceptions than touchdowns, in his last two contests. Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants' Pro Bowl wide receiver, has struggled as well, compiling only 96 receiving yards during that same time frame. However, Beckham believes that the Giants will turn things around soon and "break out."

"This team is so explosive, so dynamic," Beckham said Monday. "It is only going to last for so long before we just break out and start making plays."

Beckham also admitted that the offense is still growing to its full potential in Year 2 of Ben McAdoo's offense.

"The road to construction is never really finished," Beckham said. "We are still building and constructing."

"We have a very explosive offense, very dynamic one," he added. "We just all have to be on the same page and get everything going."
