Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Praise for the offensive line ... really

I told you on Tuesday that all of the analytics pointed to a better than expected effort by the Giants’ offensive line on Sunday vs. the Denver Broncos.

That may shock some. It doesn’t shock head coach Joe Judge.

“I wasn’t surprised to see our guys go out the other day and operate the way we planned on going out there and operating. I wasn’t. I expected them to go out there and play well,” Judge said on Tuesday. “I’m not surprised by the way the offensive line plays. I see the way they work every day. I know what we demand on those guys. I know the situations we put them in to challenge them and make it tough, make it tougher than it’s going to be in the games a lot of times. I see how they respond to it. I like the way they respond to coaching. I like the way they respond to tough criticism. So, I’m not surprised with the way these guys played because of how they work.”

Taylor Heinicke’s time has arrived

Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke has been kicking around the NFL since 2017 after going undrafted out of Old Dominion. The Washington Football Team is his fifth franchise. He has started one regular-season and one playoff game in that time. Now, suddenly, with Ryan Fitzpatrick on IR the Washngton quarterback job is his for the foreseeable future.

“Something I’ve been dreaming about my whole life, being a starting quarterback in the NFL and here we are,” Heinicke said on Tuesday. “So, I really try and take it one day at a time, one meeting at a time, one play at a time. I feel like if I just live in the moment, everything else will take care of itself. I don’t try and get too ahead of myself.”
