  • Sunday against Dallas, Toney became one of just five rookies in NFL history with at least 10 receptions and 185 receiving yards. Two of them are Giants.

“I just think it’s a combo of a little of everything, but it comes down to execution, and 11 has to be working as one,” he said. “We’re trying to get everyone gelling. We played better in New Orleans, but I don’t think we executed well enough in a hostile environment to beat Dallas. We have to execute better and put guys in better positions to do their jobs better. We’re not making excuses or running from that.”

"When I go back and watch the film from last year to this year, I can just tell the difference is affected by how much I'm not on the ground, last year I was on the ground a lot," Thomas said. "I messed up my blocks a few times because my weight was on my outside half. This year it's a lot more smooth moving from outside to inside."
