NASHVILLE – The football gods finally smiled upon the New York Giants.
A potential game-winning field goal by the Titans’ Randy Bullock – a former Giants – sailed wide left, and the Giants exploded off the sideline in celebration as Brian Daboll won his first game as head coach in Sunday’s 21-20 victory at Nissan Stadium.
The Giants have won their season opener on the road. The last time the was in 2016 against the Cowboys.
Daboll showed he isn’t afraid to be aggressive, opting for a two-point conversation that proved decisive in the final 66 seconds. The Giants responded despite an interception by Daniel Jones that ended the previous drive in the end zone. A long run by Barkley got them into striking distance, and Jones redeemed himself with a beautiful fake and touchdown strike from one yard out to Chris Myarick
This could be the win the changes the faith of this team. No expected the Giants to win in Tennessee against Derrick Henry the Titians.
