Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley had his third straight game of 100 total yards while Odell Beckham Jr. recorded 109 receiving yards and Eli Manning threw for two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.
"That's how I see playing offense," Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. "You deal up a progression, you dial it up and the ball goes where it is supposed to go if it gets out on time."
The Giants, who had scored just two touchdowns in two games, including Barkley's highlight-reel 68-yard touchdown in the season-opener, scored three on Sunday for their first victory of the season.
Barkley had a 15-yard touchdown run that turned a 3-0 deficit into a 7-3 lead, and the Giants didn't look back. Manning, who lost tight end Evan Engram in the first half, capped a six-play, 71-yard drive in the second quarter with a 16-yard touchdown to Rhett Ellison, and put the game out of reach with a 7-yard touchdown to Sterling Shepard that made it 27-15 with 2:08 remaining in the fourth.
As for Beckham, while he has yet to catch a touchdown through the first three games of the season, he caught nine of 10 targets -- both of which led New York -- and said he thought the team moved the ball well on offense.
"I love it -- being able to move that ball around, getting it into the hands of playmakers and letting them make plays and do what they do, that is what this offense is built for," Beckham said. "And we got to do that a bit."
Barkley, the 21-year-old rookie whom New York drafted second overall, totaled 82 rushing yards on 17 carries and 35 receiving yards on five catches. He recorded 106 rushing and 22 receiving yards in Week 1 and 28 rushing and 80 receiving yards in Week 2.
"I love to win," Barkley said, according to the New York Post's George Willis. "I'm a competitor and I'll do whatever it takes to help the team."
But Manning had the biggest turnaround of the Giants' offensive playmakers. After recording quarterback ratings of 32.8 and 34.1 in the first two weeks, respectively, he had an 88.0 QBR on Sunday, completing 25 of 29 passes for a season-high 297 yards.
"I thought Eli played a good game," Shurmur said. "I should say a damn good game. ... Pretty fair day at the office if I might say myself."
