Before facing the Cowboys in Week Seven

His club beat the Cowboys and picked up another NFC East win against the Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Adrian Peterson powered the way to the 20-13 victory.Peterson opened the team’s scoring with a seven-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and closed it with a 64-yard burst through the Giants defense in the fourth. The touchdown catch was his first since 2013 and the touchdown run was his longest since 2015.You don’t have to look quite so far back to find the last time Peterson finished with more than the 149 rushing yards he accumulated on Sunday, but that doesn’t make the outing any less impressive. Peterson is now up to 587 rushing yards for the season (and ninth in NFL history after passing Tony Dorsett on Sunday) and his play has been vital to the team’s 5-2 start.That record has them in first place in the NFC East and set to host the Falcons next weekend with a chance to build their lead over the idle Eagles. The Giants will go into a bye week and it really couldn’t come a moment too soon for a team that’s completely lost this season.They had 190 yards of offense with Washington up 13-3 in the fourth quarter and padded those numbers without ever challenging for control of the game in the final minutes. Eli Manning wound up with 316 passing yards, but two interceptions and seven sacks while picking up 4.7 yards per attempt tell a better story of what the Giants offense actually looked like on Sunday.Despite being within one score for most of the day and having second overall pick Saquon Barkley on the team, the Giants opted to run the ball just 14 times and that approach did nothing to support a good defensive effort that only broke down on Peterson’s late touchdown run.There were dropped passes and many other offensive issues [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-kerry-wynn-jersey]http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-kerry-wynn-jersey[/url] , but team’s record and Manning’s overall play this year mean that the bye week is going to feature plenty of discussion about when it will be time to look at rookie Kyle Lauletta. That will be followed by discussion about whether Manning’s actually in his final days with the Giants after the team flirted with that notion last season. The Tennessee Titans have filled their fifth wide receiver spot by promoting Cameron Batson from the practice squad.The Titans (3-2) filled the open roster spot Wednesday after waiving receiver Nick Williams on Tuesday, two days after he was beaten by a defender who turned the play into an interception and also dropped a would-be touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of a 13-12 loss in Buffalo.Batson signed with Tennessee as an undrafted rookie free agent in May after playing 50 games at Texas Tech where he caught 157 passes for 1,499 yards and 14 touchdowns. Batson also returns kicks and punts.The Titans brought back running back Dalyn Dawkins to the practice squad and added offensive lineman Jordan Morgan and wide receiver Roger Lewis to the practice squad. Morgan was a fifth-round pick by Chicago in the 2017 draft before being waived after training camp. Lewis has 43 catches for 513 yard and four touchdowns in 28 games with the New York Giants.Notes: Left tackle Taylor Lewan (right foot) did not practice Wednesday. QB Marcus Mariota was not listed on the injury report for the first time since hurting his right elbow in the season opener. LB Will Compton (hamstring) also did not practice along with S Kenny Vaccaro (right elbow). LB Wesley Woodyard, who snapped a 77-games played streak last week [url=http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-will-hernandez-jersey]http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-will-hernandez-jersey[/url] , was limited in his return to practice with an injured shoulder. LB Robert Spillane (knee) also was limited. OT Dennis Kelly practiced fully.
