New Orleans racked up 507 yards of offense on the day, and Brees hit the 400-yard passing mark for the 14th time in his career. They're focus is all about taking on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The Saints then drove 34 yards in five plays, but newly signed kicker Wil Lutz just missed a 61-yard field-goal attempt at the buzzer that would have won the game.
After a high-scoring game that allowed 101 total points in the previous season, what's in store for the upcoming matchup?
Collins, in fact, jokingly denied even being in uniform that day when asked Friday to recall the Superdome horror show. Williams showed bravado in welcoming the challenge of facing Beckham, Victor Cruz and rookie Sterling Shepard by saying, "We're looking forward to getting challenged by those guys."ABOUT THE GIANTS (1-0): NY received early dividends last week after investing $141 million to bolster its defensive line, notably holding prized rookie Ezekiel Elliott to just 51 yards rushing behind Dallas' highly touted offensive line".
"I just remember balls being thrown everywhere, I can tell you that much", said Collins, who was a rookie last season.
We're just one week into the 2016 National Football League regular season, and fan bases across the country are already starting to get into "everybody panic" mode after their respective teams lost in Week 1.
The Saints offense looked great in Week 1, but a two-point conversion at the end of the game helped the Oakland Raiders pull off the win in a shootout.
Point spread: The Giants opened as four-point favorites; the total was 51.5 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. We got the win, but you can never be satisfied.
The debacle against Brees might have been the biggest impetus for the Giants' offseason defensive spending spree that brought cornerback Janoris Jenkins, defensive end Olivier Vernon and tackle Damon Harrison in free agency, as well as the use of a first-round pick on Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple. "He has a major league arm, and he can make all the throws and he is not a rookie, so there is not too much that he hasn't seen".
Vernon played well in his Giants' debut. Manning passed for 350 yards and six touchdowns during that game. "Now that we have the defense that we need, I think it's going to be a better outcome".
