New York — The New York New York has been a New York, the New York.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and his teammates have always been a team that loves to go big.
The Giants’ season-opening win over the Miami Dolphins was a case in point.
Manning threw two touchdown passes and rushed for two more.
He also ran for another touchdown, including a 33-yarder with less than a minute remaining in the game.
And when he did throw the ball, the defense couldn’t stop it.
The defense held the New Orleans Saints to a season-low five points on two of the team’s final three possessions.
But the defense allowed the Giants to take advantage of a few mistakes and set up a score late in the third quarter.
On the Giants’ first possession, the offense fumbled a fumble and then returned it for a touchdown.
On the ensuing drive, the Giants ran a play designed to set up an extra-point, but the ball was knocked out of bounds by the Saints.
On the next play, the Saints lined up in a nickel formation and ran a fake handoff.
They tried to set the ball down on the ground, but it ended up being intercepted by New York cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
New York eventually recovered the fumble.
It was an interesting play that had some interesting twists and turns, with both New York and New Orleans eventually winning their respective fumbles.
The next play was more of a conventional play-action fake, with the ball being held by the defense and then thrown to Manning, who ran a slant and then caught the ball before it was thrown.
Manning completed his second pass attempt for 26 yards, and the third pass came after the Saints’ defense had pressured Manning, but he was sacked for a loss of five yards.
On New Orleans’ next possession, Manning passed to receiver Marqise Lee for 19 yards, but Lee was intercepted again.
The Giants then marched down the field, setting up a touchdown pass from Manning to rookie receiver Rashard Higgins for 31 yards.
The last play of the first half ended in a sack for the Saints, who forced a fumble on New Orleans receiver Lance Moore, who then returned the fumble for a score.
This was a huge blow for the Giants.
The New Orleans defense was one of the league’s best in the fourth quarter of the Dolphins’ loss.
The Saints offense also looked great, as quarterback Drew Brees was sacked just twice, with five other QB hits.
The second half was a game in which the Giants offense didn’t get off to a great start, especially in the red zone, where they were outscored 14-0.
But once the Giants finally broke through, they did it in style.
The offense kept up the pressure and made the Giants score touchdowns on a few key plays in the final three minutes of the game, including an 18-yard touchdown run by Higgins.
Manuel and the Giants defense held on for a 21-20 victory.
