Giants beat Titans in Week 1; new era off to a good start


After a half decade of coaching and personnel malpractice, the Giants saw the light of day in their season-opening win over the Titans. Sunday’s 21–20 victory was the first time the franchise won a season-opener since 2016.

We’re not going to tell you that, all of a sudden, they’re going to be a factor in the NFC East. We’re not going to say this is the team we all whiffed on this offseason. We’re not even going to float the idea that they’ll finish the season with a winning record.

We are going to ask that you go back and watch the game-winning sequence again, in which Saquon Barkley revived a dead-on-arrival shovel pass and plowed his way into the end zone. We’re going to suggest you focus on how he walked right back to new coach Brian Daboll, and Daboll did his best to remain upright while bear-hugging his running back. We’re going to ask you to watch Barkley in the moments after, where it looks like he’s trying to tell us that this has been here all along. That his journey didn’t have to be so hard.
