Ross said he felt good right after his collision, but the team still had to have him checked out. The Giants used new sideline technology on both him and Ware Sunday. Neither returned to the game.
The Giants' receivers were able to dent the Packers' secondary in their first meeting on Dec 4th. TE Travis Beckum, who broke out with a 67-yard TD catch, believes they can build on that success.
“I think the deep balls are there,” Beckum told reporters yesterday. “Obviously, they have a couple good guys, a couple standout players on defense, but we’ve got to capitalize on what they give us.”
WR Hakeem Nicks feels pretty much the same way. The Packers are prone to the big play...
"I think we can take advantage of certain things that they do within their schemes of the defense, definitely not a group that you can overlook," Nicks said. "There are some guys that definitely have great play-making ability in their secondary and I think they feed off of turnovers so as long as we take care of the things we need to take care of within our offense, we will be fine."
WR Victor Cruz, who is having a huge year (and just became a father on Monday) says the Giants won't shy away from throwing the ball downfield.
"If it doesn’t work the first time, we see the opening, we are going to call that play call to take advantage of it whether it worked the first time or it’s overthrown or broken up, we are going to come right back to it."
