At one point in the first half of Sunday’s 23-20 win over Washington at FedEx Field, by design, the Giants had three recruits in the match on their attack line.
Andrew Thomas, as usual, starts with the left shot. Shane Lemieux started at left-back for the second week in a row, replacing Will Hernandez, who was on the bench / COVID-19. Matt Peart, selected in the third round, came on to replace Cam Fleming, a rotation that the Giants have been using for the past few weeks.
The Giants have a rushing 109 yards during the break, this has been approved by Hernandez, who tweeted: “Yes, boys.
At some point in the second half, the underused Chad Slade came on the pitch, replacing Lemieux at left-back. In the fourth half, Thomas was on the bench and Peart kicked left, a rookie (third half) for another rookie (first half).
Head Coach Joe Judge said, “Wisely, we actually do three to two at that point. “Wise protector, Will should be back sooner for us. I plan to be three in two in those positions as well as inside. We will try to play everyone at the game every week, ensuring that we stay fresh, giving everyone the experience. ”;
Final total: 35 shots at 166 meters, both the highest of the season.
“They have been doing very well over the past few weeks,” said full-back Daniel Jones. [Offensive line] coach [Marc] Colombo let them go and rotated those people in and out and kept them fresh. We have been running efficiently all day. That is a great advantage for us. Those guys did well against a really good defensive front, being able to really impact the game and change the game. ”
The Giants’ last five games (two wins, three losses) were determined by a 10 point total.… TE Kaden Smith was forced out of the match in the fourth half with a concussion. Smith was an important factor in blocking the runway before he left the field.
Rookie WR Austin Mack, a helper for veteran Golden Tate left-kick at home, captured four passes from a distance of 72 yards, including a 50-yard penalty in the first half to score.
“Austin has done a great job in his role and did a lot of plays for us,” Jones said. “He’s someone you can trust to get to the right place. I definitely believe in him. ”
Jones can be heard shouting “Eli, Eli, Eli” as he changes a play on the line of the script, a check of homage to the retired Eli Manning. Jones laughed when asked about this and said that Manning has yet to contact him about it.
“Maybe I’ll hear from him now,” Jones said.
