Shurmur on Kyler Murray's talent 00:01:27
New York Giants head coach Par Shurmur knows how talented Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is and the many ways he can beat you on the field.

To snap a two-game losing streak, the Giants will have to beat the Cardinals in their home stadium. And though they are 2-3-1 on the season, Arizona still offers a tough challenge, especially in the form of rookie quarterback Kyler Murray

This year's No. 1 overall draft pick has showed off that pocket presence to go along with his elusive legs between the hashes. For the Giants to have any success against Murray, being able to contain him will be a must. 

Head coach Pat Shurmur discussed Murray's skill set at practice on Monday, and he has been impressed by what he's seen from him thus far.

Giants fall to 2-3 00:01:22
Pat Shurmur and Daniel Jones discuss the Giants inability to take advantage of opportunities throughout their loss to the Vikings

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - After a wonderful first two games as the starting quarterback of the Giants, Daniel Jones got a taste of what Eli Manning had to endure over most of the previous six years:

Life as a quarterback on a bad team.

There was pretty much nothing Jones could do with a depleted rushing attack behind him, a struggling offensive line in front of him, and a porous defense on the other side - all things that should feel very, very familiar to his current backup. He was 21 of 38 for 182 yards, which isn't exactly good, but also was about what was expected considering he was making his third NFL start and was facing the NFL's sixth-ranked defense (and maybe the league's best secondary).

Jabrill Peppers/Landon Collins
Jabrill Peppers/Landon Collins

As the Giants closed out their win over the Redskins on Sunday, it didn't go quietly between the division rivals. 

There was a scuffle after the contest, and it involved former Giants S Landon Collins and the man that took his place in S Jabrill Peppers. 

According to NJ.com, Collins was talking toward the Giants bench when Peppers stepped up to get in his face. They began jawing back and forth with players from both teams stepping in to try to break it up. As they separated, Peppers supposed yelled out, "We're gonna see y'all again! And I want all of that!"

1st half improvements are key 00:02:15
Jabrill Peppers and Alec Ogletree agree that if the Giants can start games the way they finish, they'll have no problems

The Giants defense was being abused on Sunday afternoon, and it wasn't the first time. Their resistance wasn't just futile, it was non-existent. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were moving the football like Giants defenders weren't even there.

Then, out of nowhere, everything changed. Suddenly, they had a pass rush. They created a turnover. They got big, third-down stops. Up until the final drive, and before they were bailed out by a missed field goal, they looked like an actual defense for the first time this season.

And that, just as much as anything rookie quarterback Daniel Jones did, is why the Giants ended up winning that game.

Giants linebacker Alec Ogletree injured his hamstring in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and will not return today.

He seemed to pull his hamstring after running down the field with what he thought was a recovered fumble after Dexter Lawrence knocked the ball out of Jameis Winston's hand on a throw. Ogletree slowed down on the run and was knocked over by Jabrill Peppers, who wanted the linebacker to keep on running. 

The play was called dead and was ruled an incomplete pass by Winston.

Giants safety Jabrill Peppers is one of three Giants players that played on an NFL team that will live in infamy.

Peppers was the Browns' first-round pick at the 2017 NFL draft. His first win as a professional football player wouldn't come in his rookie year as the Browns became only the second team in league history to go 0-16 that year.

But Peppers, who was traded to the Giants this offseason in a deal that sent wideout Odell Beckham Jr. the other way, recently revealed that he has fond learning experiences from that brutal season. He's happy it happened and takes positives from it.

When the Giants traded star receiver Odell Beckham to the Cleveland Browns on March 12, the haul brought versatile safety Jabrill Peppers back home.

Peppers, who rose up the football ranks in New Jersey via Paramus Catholic High School before heading to Michigan for three years and embarking on his NFL career in 2017, debuted Sunday with the Giants in a 31-22 win over the Jets.

The first look for Peppers in the starting defense yielded mixed results with Jets quarterback Sam Darnold going 4-of-5 passing for 68 yards and a touchdown, but the third-year defensive back keeps his head up as he and the Giants move further into the preseason.

Getting traded after just two seasons with a team can be very difficult for some players, but it seems Giants safety Jabrill Peppers has fully embraced the new opportunity. The New Jersey native was acquired by the Giants in the Odell Beckham Jr. trade with the Cleveland Browns back in March. 

During an interview with Steve Serby of the New York Post, Peppers opened up about his career, family, and thoughts on some current and former teammates.

Peppers, who the Browns selected with pick 25 in the 2017 NFL Draft, was highly touted coming out of Michigan. He was a threat on both sides of the ball, making defensive plays and working well in the return game. He expressed his pride for making it to the NFL, while also holding himself accountable for his play thus far in his career.

Giants safety Jabrill Peppers is the latest teammate that rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has impressed this summer.

According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, the selection of Jones by the Giants was praised much more league-wide. Peppers remembers the boos and questioning that took place the moment Jones became his teammate on draft night.

But Peppers now defers to the eye test.

Going into his 14th NFL season, Giants safety Antoine Bethea believes his new team has a chance to be one of the league's top defenses. Last season, the Giants gave up the 10th-most yards in the league and allowed an average of 252.8 passing yards per game.

Nonetheless, the three-time Pro Bowler is optimistic that he, along with a couple other new faces, can be a boost to help this team reverse tides in 2019.

"For the defense? I think we could be one of the tops in the league," Bethea said. "Obviously, the guys that have been here have been in their second year under the defense. Myself, along with some other guys, being the first year coming in, plugging in, and making it happen."
