Here are some notes and quotes from New York’s 17-0 victory over Kansas City:
The Giants had free agent DT Grady Jackson in for a visit on Thursday. Jackson, who has had his share of medical concerns, did not finish his physical exam. Another veteran free agent DT, Brentson Buckner, is scheduled to be at Giants Stadium on Friday…
On the injury front, two offensive linemen were felled during the first quarter. C Shaun O’Hara left with a sprained left knee and is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday. LT Luke Petitgout was slowed by back spasms…
Rob Johnson completed seven-of-14 passes for 62 yards in his first opportunity to capture the backup QB job. Johnson showed good mobility playing behind a suspect offensive line.
“I think Rob definitely did some good things,” Tom Coughlin said. “He was definitely under some pressure.”
“It just felt good to get the adrenaline going,” Johnson said. “I have a lot to improve on. I’m itching to get back out there.
“There’s no excuse. I can play a lot better than that and I will.”
Mathias Kiwanuka had a second-quarter sack and forced fumble among his three tackles.
“He was very aggressive, very physical like he was last week,” Coughlin said.
Fourteen different Giants caught passes with Michael Jennings leading the way with three grabs for 24 yards…
Brandon Short posted three tackles filling in for Emmons at WLB…
Two Giants receivers were called for holding on back-to-back plays late in the first quarter – Jeremy Shockey and Tim Carter…
Curtis Deloatch had a picture perfect tackle on punt coverage in the second quarter, dropping the dangerous Dante Hall for no gain immediately after he caught the ball.
