It’s game day, New York Giants fans! Your Giants host the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon, with kickoff set for 4:25 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium. Here is everything you need to watch, listen to and wager on Sunday’s game.
Halftime score: The Giants’ scoring went silent in the second quarter, while the Saints put up four field goals to take a 12-7 halftime lead. The good news, though, is that the Giants’ red-zone defense held up, with no touchdowns allowed on the Saints’ four appearances.
Eli Manning ended the half with 12 completions on 16 pass attempts for 161 yards and a touchdown. Wayne Gallman is the team’s leading receiver with three catches for 17 yards. Sterling Shepard has three catches for 14 yards and a touchdown. Odell Beckham, Jr. has two catches on five targets for minus-four yards. Saquon Barkley has rushd five times for 21 yards and also has a seven-yard catch.
The Giants have a total of 98 yards, while the Saints have 164. Gallman also fumbled the ball away, the ensuing Saints drive culminating in one of those four aforementioned field goals.
Injury update: Odell Beckham, Jr. went into the locker room just before halftime, but it was reported that it was to get an IV early and not due to any specific injury:
