Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Kadarius Toney’s record-setting stretch
The last two weeks have been amazing ones for rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney.
- 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.
Rookies with 10 catches, 185 receiving yards
|12/09/1985||Jerry Rice||San Francisco||10||241|
|12/28/2014||Odell Beckham Jr.||Giants||12||185|
Toney had the fourth-highest yardage total by an NFL rookie receiver in the 10 seasons covering 2012-21:
Justin Blackmon, Jackonville (236, 11/18/12); Mike Evans, Tampa Bay (209, 11/16/14); JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh (193, 10/29/17); Toney (189, 10/10/21).
Toney and Beckham are the only Giants rookies to exceed 180 receiving yards in a game. Beckham had games of 185 and 156 yards in 2014.
“I’m feeling better, doing a lot of work, a lot of treatment and trying to get ready for Sunday,’’ Thomas said Tuesday on the latest episode of the New York Post’s “Blue Rush” podcast, which will be available Thursday morning.
“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."
