Shane Vereen content with Giants, expects game vs. Patriots to be ‘strange’

Shane Vereen’s rookie season was also the last time the New England Patriots and New York Giants played before their Week 10 matchup this Sunday. Vereen didn’t play in the Patriots’ two losses to the Giants in 2011 — including Super Bowl XLVI — but the running back’s role steadily increased from there. Vereen eventually proved his worth as a running back, blocker...

The sleeping Giants need a running game

The New York Giants may find themselves at the top of the NFC East division, but they are far from playing like a first place team.   A modest 4-3 record, with a divisional record of 2-2, is enough to keep them ahead of the pack... for now. That record should have been better, though. Starting this season 0-2 did not help, especially considering they all but gave those games...

Dion Lewis found the perfect fit with New England

Dion Lewis has made his presence felt this season. He’s been in the NFL since 2011, but had only appeared in 24 games through 2014—playing for two different teams and signing with a third in the process—before joining up with the New England Patriots in the offseason. It started with a reserve/futures deal in December, and has already flourished into a two-year contract...

Report: Vikings sign former Super Bowl hero’s brother to practice squad

Shane Vereen continues to look like the Giants' best RB

The New York Giants brought in free agent running back Shane Vereen this offseason to fill a role. They wanted Vereen to add an element to the offense as a receiver out of the backfield on passing downs and in no-huddle situations. Through the Giants' first two games, Vereen has been the most explosive option on offense outside of Odell Beckham Jr., and it might be time for him to...

Could Shane Vereen play the slot until Victor Cruz returns?

Eli Manning remains unfazed about poor preseason

The preseason is a fickle beast. Sometimes a poor preseason reveals major weaknesses that are exposed further during the regular season. Sometimes it means almost nothing and should be disregarded completely when looking ahead. Last year, the New York Giants were 5-0 in the preseason and finished 6-10. That’s probably why starting quarterback Eli Manning is unfazed by his struggles...
