The ironic twist waiting for Victor Cruz as he nears return

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — He stood facing the bright, warm sun on the sideline, clad for the first time in forever in his blue No. 80 jersey. He watched Eli Manning (4-for-9, 44 yards) sputter and Ben McAdoo win a challenge and Andre Williams fumble and Odell Beckham Jr. catch a 22-yard slant and the...

Giants-Bills final score: Giants blanked by Buffalo, 21-0

Inept offense leads to listless loss ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — After months of optimism greeted the beginning of the Ben McAdoo era as head coach, the New York Giants have opened with a pair of miserable performances in their first two preseason games. After a mistake-filled 27-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in their preseason opener, the Giants followed that Saturday with an equally sloppy 21-0 loss to the Buffalo Bills at New Era Stadium. The Giants played a horride first half, with Buffalo scoring all 21 of its points in the second quarter. Eli Manning went just 4-of-9 for 44 yards and the...

Bills vs. Giants, 2016 NFL preseason Week 2: game time, TV schedule, announcers, & more

New Era Field sees its first action when the Bills host the Giants for a preseason tilt. Is there anything more exciting or compelling than week two of the NFL preseason? Yes. That said, you can still enjoy some NFL action this afternoon, when the Buffalo Bills play host to the New York Giants in their "first" game at the newly-branded New Era Field. The Bills and Giants won’t play in the regular season again until 2019, so this is probably the last time the Bills will be facing off against Eli Manning. They’ll be looking for a (very, very, very) small slice of revenge for the 24-10...

How Ben McAdoo hopes to tweak offense in Game 2

Not much. That is the condensed version of what the Giants’ passing attack showed in last week’s preseason opener. No one anticipates a three-ring aerial circus in these games, but even by the modest expectations of summer football, this was a dud. Sure, Eli Manning did not play, but what backup Ryan Nassib put on...

Previewing the Giants with Ed Valentine of Big Blue Review. With the Giants coming to town for the Bills’ second preseason game, I reached out to Ed Valentine, the editor-in-chief of Big Blue View, SB Nation’s G-Men blog, for some insight. Here are my five questions, and Ed’s five answers: Buffalo Rumblings: How long should we expect to see the Giants starts on the field in this one? Big Blue View: That's a good question.

Bryce Petty’s stepping it up: Is it enough to overtake Geno Smith?

Everyone is dissecting Bryce Petty’s place in the Jets’ quarterback pecking order … everyone except Bryce Petty. “I can’t,” Petty said this week. “I think I was doing that in the beginning of camp. At the same time, that’s way above my pay grade. What I do know is if I do worry about it,...
