Daniel Jones lived up to the hype in his first career start, running for a pair of seven-yard touchdowns -- including the game-winner scramble with 1:16 left -- Sunday during the Giants' 32-31 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At the end of the Giants' eight play, 75-yard drive -- which started with 3:16 left in the fourth quarter -- Jones dropped back on a fourth-and-five pass.

As the middle of the field opened up, Jones tucked the ball and ran seven yards untouched, across the goal line and into the end zone for the Giants' first lead all game.

Since video of USWNT star Carli Lloyd nailing a 55-yard field goal at Eagles practice went viral, the 37-year-old has fielded "serious" offers from NFL teams potentially interested in her services as a kicker. 

"I know that there's some challenges involved with this and I know that there's probably some players and people and everybody around the globe thinking this is the craziest thing," Lloyd told Lindsay Rhodes of the NFL Network. "But then I also see it from the one perspective of maybe this is kind of something that's going to break down some barriers and give people, women especially, the confidence to know that maybe they can be a part of any NFL team as a kicker."

Lloyd has her backers and detractors when it comes to her ability to succeed in the NFL as a kicker after having spent her entire career playing soccer, but one person who is in her corner is Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas.

Football fans look forward to the release of each year's installment of the Madden NFL franchise, but Giants fans may want to play with a different team in this year's game.

The Madden NFL 20 player and team ratings were released on Monday, and the Giants have the lowest team rating in the NFC at 77. That's the second-lowest rating only in front of the Dolphins (74). Their NFC East rivals in the Eagles and Cowboys are rated much higher at 89 and 88 respectively.

The Giants' gem on their roster is RB Saquon Barkley, who led the Giants with a 91 overall (and was ranked the fifth-best running back in the game). Other than that, the ratings weren't too kind to the Giants.

The Giants sent out a few tenders for the 2019 season, including K Aldrick Rosas and WR Corey Coleman, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed on Wednesday.

Rosas was among the five exclusive rights free agents (ERFAs). Center Jon Halapio and FB Eli Penny were issued tenders, while OL Kristjan Sokoli and DT Jordan Williams did not receive one which means they will be unrestricted free agents on March 13 when the new league year begins. Those issued a tender will make a league minimum salary for the new year.

Rosas was an essential for the Giants to bring back, especially after his impressive 2018 season. He was one of the best kickers in the NFL, hitting 32-of-33 field goals and 31-of-32 extra points. This performance earned the 24-year-old his first Pro Bowl bid, as it was a big step forward from a shaky 2017 season.

A key member of the 2018 Giants is officially back in the fold.

In a no-brainer move, the Giants tendered exclusive rights free agent kicker Aldrick Rosas, a source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. Rosas, 24, made the 2018 Pro Bowl in his second season as the Giants' kicker and was named second-team All-Pro. 

Rosas completed 97 percent of his field goals last season (32-for-33) and converted 31 of 32 extra-point attempts. He was 4-for-5 on field-goal attempts of at least 50 yards and 6-for-6 on attempts between 40 and 49 yards.

As an exclusive rights FA, Rosas will get a one-year, minimum-salary contract.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Everything Aldrick Rosas has done so far this offseason has impressed his Giants teammates and coaches, and they have faith he can be a reliable kicker.

But the truth is, they can't possibly know that for sure because the 22-year-old Rosas has never kicked in an NFL game.

"I think that you kind of check boxes as you go along," Giants special teams coach Tom Quinn said at minicamp this week. "Are his times in the range? Yes. The height, the rotation, handling the wind? The different scenarios we put him in? The next step is handling the games. So that will be the next big thing."
