by the starting offense minus Schwartz (dislocated toe). 11-play, 91-yard 1:48 drive
Started off with a horrible throw by Manning that would have been an INT had the defender stayed in bounds.
Beatty had a great block on Coples during the drive.
Eli threw threw one away near the goal line.
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful protection by the Giants offensive line allows Eli Manning 15 yd pass to find Rueben Randle for a touchdown. Jets brought three, Jennings helped Beatty on outside and the Giants score.
Drive done in 2 min offense. Giants first-half stats. Manning 12-of-21, 13 yards, 1 TD. 93.2 QB rating. Cruz had 4 receptions for 61 yards. Randle 2 41 yards TD
That was it for the starters. They ran 34 plays.
Connor Hughes: "Manning, looking better than he has all summer (practice and games) in offense."
Hopefully the fumbles and near ints will be eliminated and the rhythm established on that drive will carry over to the likely minimal amount of work the starters will get next week and then into the regular season opener.
