The New York Giants (3-3) evened their season with 27-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens (3-3) at MetLife Stadium Sunday. It wasn’t always pretty, especially in the first half, but Big Blue prevailed on a pair of late Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr. TD connections. Manning eclipsed the 400-yard mark and Beckham went for a career high 222 receiving yards. Check out what the Giants had to say post-game.

From the locker room

“That was big. That is what we have to do. We have really tough, have to stay with it, you have to believe. You have to believe that we’re going to make the plays that we need to. The defense did a great job making stops. Offensively, same thing. We didn’t start off great but we got a great rhythm and kept going. There were some unfortunate plays but we bounced back and made the plays that we needed to so that’s what we had to do this week. It’s not always going to be easy, it’s going to be tough at times. There’s going to be lulls when you’re playing great and not playing great. But you just have to believe you can do it every time and make the plays you need to make to win the game.”

“No. See when I’m running with him, he’s battling for me to get into position. I’m fighting with him and he’s looking at the ball. That’s legal. You can do that. That’s what I always was told. That’s what I know. I’m not sure what he got off that. He said he got it in the beginning. That should’ve been a hold or something, definitely not a pass interference. ...

“I did think I made a good play because I held my inside position. That was critical to be inside. For the most part, I can’t argue that. It was a call that was made. I have to live with it.”

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the questionable late-game pass interference called against him:

“That’s what we expect. That’s what we try to get out of offense at all times. That’s a great duo and they did a great job today. Just have to get the ball in his hands and make those opportunities count.”

Landon Collins on Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr, and getting the ball back to the offense:

“That is the 13 that I see all the time and I see that at practice and he showed it today. We all know what kind of player he is and he had one of those days today where he was just kind of unstoppable. Hats off to him, he has been getting a lot of criticism lately and he showed up.”

Jonathan Casillas on OBJ’s career-day:

“It is time to go score. It is time to go make a play. I didn’t know what was going on with him, but it was just time for me to make a play and coach told me to go get it.”
