What: New York Giants vs Detroit Lions
When: Monday, Sept. 18, 5:30 p.m. PT/8:30 p.m. ET
The Lions will be playing their first nationally televised game of the year when they take on the New York Giants on “Monday Night Football.” It was only four games ago that the Lions and Giants met in Week 15, but this matchup has a history that goes back much farther than that.
Let’s jitterbug all the way back to November of 1930, before anyone knew what a jitterbug was. The dance was created in 1934, and it’s a song about alcoholics.The Lions and Giants have faced each other 44 times since then. And the Lions currently hold the upper hand with a 22-21-1 record, but it’s the Giants who have won four out of the last five meetings.
Theo Riddick also spends time in Detroit’s backfield, yet it seems they are only interested to use him in passing situations as Riddick only had a single rush but six receptions in Giants QB Eli Manning is 4-1 against the Lions in his career with seven TDs, three INTs and an 87.4 passer rating. He has been sacked twice in every meeting, including last season’s 17-6 win at home.
The Giants (0-1) offense couldn’t get anything going without Beckham on the field. Beckham is still rehabbing what sounds like a high left ankle sprain, but he did practice in a limited capacity on Thursday, but he told reporters that he’s dealing with a six-to-eight week rehab schedule. Beckham suffered the injury Aug. 21, almost a month ago. If Beckham’s timeline is correct, he’s out at least until Week 4 or 5 of the season.
