Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Antoine Bethea: Jackrabbit will bounce back
In his 14th NFL season, Antoine Bethea understands that there are ups and downs, that sometimes good players have bad games. Here is what he said about Janoris Jenkins on Monday after the veteran cornerback had an awful game vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
“If you play in this league, you are going to have a tough day. It’s all about how you bounce back. If you have ever played in the NFL, you’ve had a bad day, that’s what it is. Nobody has ever played in this league for how long Jackrabbit has played and hasn’t had a bad day,” Bethea said. “Jackrabbit knows what he needs to do, he is a veteran, he is one of our leaders. You can expect next game that he will play better. We expect that from him and he expects that from himself.”
Evan Engram on 75-yard touchdown
Evan Engram is fast. With a 75-yard touchdown in sight, maybe faster than he knew.
“I think that might have been the fastest that I have run, definitely with the ball, and probably in my career. It was a play we kind of drew up, we kind of called it coming out of halftime. We knew that we definitely needed a spark. Personally, that’s my goal and what I strive for to be for this team, just to be a spark plug,” Engram said of Sunday’s long touchdown. “We definitely were in position to make a big play. It was also important everyone did their job protecting Daniel, receivers ran great routes, and Daniel hit me in stride. Slay (Darius Slayton) made a huge block downfield. Just distracting that guy for a little bit gave me a leeway to get down the sideline and get in the end zone.”
#Giants TE Evan Engram told reporters he believes he ran the fastest he’s ever run on his 75-yard TD yesterday. Checked with @NextGenStats and @NFLResearch. His 20.84 MPH was indeed the fastest they’ve recorded (since the start of 2018). More below. pic.twitter.com/QQJ5fFrZvW— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 23, 2019
