Andre Williams’ 4th Quarter Go-Ahead Touchdown Leads New York Giants to 35-24 Win Over Jets

For over a year, Snoopy was held captive by the New York Jets. After Friday night, he'll find himself on the right side of things following the latest preseason meeting between the New York Giants and the Jets.

The Snoopy we're referring to is the Snoopy trophy the winning team gets for the annual MetLife Bowl game played in the preseason and this year, the Giants were able to take care of business and the Jets as they secured a 35-24 win.

Early on, it did not look pretty for the Giants starting offense and fans everywhere held their collective breath when starting left guard Geoff Schwartz went down to the turf and had to be carted off the field with what was being diagnosed as a dislocated toe; no timetable has been established on how long he'll be out for.

The Jets put up the first points of the game; a 31-yard field goal by Nick Folk that made it 3-0 in favor of the Jets with 2:01 left in the first quarter. On the Jets next possession, Geno Smith found rookie tight end Jace Amaro for a one-yard touchdown strike that put the Jets ahead 10-0 and for most of the first half, the Jets were sitting pretty while the Giants looked like they couldn't get out of their own way.

New York Giants’ Corey Washington: We’ve Seen the Player, Now Let’s See the Person

August 22nd, 2014 at 3:00 PM
By Daniel Graham

“What makes you smile?” asked Theresa Villano of Pro Player Insiders to Corey Washington. “Life man!” replied Corey, who at the time this interview was conducted was attempting to impress NFL scouts at his college’s pro day.

Just four months ago, Corey Washington was in the early process of attempting to make an NFL roster while getting ready to graduate from Newberry College, a Division II school located in Newberry, South Carolina, where in two years there he caught 95 passes for 1,615 yards and 22 touchdowns.

“It’s a great opportunity [to have a chance in the league],” added Corey. “Not too many players get to go through this [pro days]. That is what I’ve got going on right now. It feels good. Why not smile?”

In the early days of New York Giants training camp, Corey Washington didn’t exactly impress fans, and competing for a receiver spot with the likes of Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan, Odell Beckham Jr. and Mario Manningham appeared treacherous. But three preseason games and three touchdown receptions later, he is getting ready with his team to take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium this Friday, and it is expected that Washington will be getting some first team experience for the big game.

New York Giants’ Kelcy Quarles: All That Matters is I’m Playing Football Somewhere in 2014

August 22nd, 2014 at 1:00 PM
By Doug Rush

One of the first undrafted free agents the New York Giants scooped up the minute the 2014 NFL Draft ended was University of South Carolina defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles.

Quarles played along side No. 1 overall pick Jadaveon Clowney in school and even had a stronger college year in 2013, recording 9.5 sacks last year, yet Clowney went No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans and Quarles went undrafted and has to fight for a roster spot.

So far, he's been fighting like hell to make the team, although he did suffer a minor setback earlier in the summer when someone fell onto his ankle two weeks ago, although no serious injuries came of it and Quarles was able to resume practicing.

Yet even with that, Quarles still faces still competition at defensive tackle with holdovers Cullen Jenkins, Jonathan Hankins and Mike Patterson, plus the team drafted Jay Bromley as well, so Quarles really has his work cut out for him if he wants to make the Giants in 2014. Yet, the rookie defensive tackle isn't looking at the competition as one, but instead, as an opportunity.

Willie Colon: MetLife Stadium Belongs to New York Jets, not New York Giants

August 22nd, 2014 at 11:00 AM
By Dan Benton

Since the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft, members of the New York Jets have been repeatedly taking potshots at the New York Giants. It began when first-round pick, safety Calvin Pryor, said one of the first lessons he learned from head coach Rex Ryan was to hate the New York Giants. It later continued with Ryan taking a jab at Giants rookie running back Andre Williams, continued with Nick Mangold boasting about a preseason victory and concluded on Thursday night with offensive lineman Willie Colon claiming MetLife Stadium belongs to Gang Green.

The ongoing inferiority complex displayed by the New York Jets has, at this point, reached exhausting levels. Like a broken record, Rex Ryan & Co. trot out the same trash-talking lines year after year, all while taking the "Snoopy Bowl" entirely too seriously. Whereas the Giants focus on improving as a team with the ultimate goal to win a Super Bowl, Mangold and the Jets chauffeur around a Snoopy trophy as if it's some sort of measuring stick.
