OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — After the final seconds ticked off, Derek Carr ran straight to the Black Hole with several teammates before taking a victory lap around the Coliseum to celebrate with his fans.

Seahawks will be facing a Giants team that has changed
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Heading into their bye, the Seattle Seahawks had a good idea about the team they would be facing in a couple of weeks.
The New York Giants were winless. Their offense relied on Eli Manning and the passing game, and the defense was having a down year after helping new coach Ben McAdoo end a four-year postseason drought.
The Seahawks (3-2) are going to see a much different opponent when they face the Giants (1-5) on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Loss of OBJ steals some thunder from Giants-Broncos game
DENVER (AP) — Aqib Talib is bummed out, although not nearly as much as Eli Manning.
Like so many football fans, the star Denver Broncos cornerback was eager for his marquee matchup with Odell Beckham Jr. before the Giants star receiver broke his left ankle against the Chargers last week.
"I love going against the best, and just to see him go out like that is just ugly," Talib said. "I don't even like to think about it. I definitely was looking forward to the matchup. Maybe next year."
New Giants receivers will at least know the playbook
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Eli Manning isn't going to have to explain the New York Giants' offense to his new receivers.
Tavarres King, Travis Rudolph and Ed Eagan know it. King was with the team last year and made the 53-man roster before being released after spraining his ankle early in the season.

Odell Beckham Jr. misses Giants-Jets with ankle injury
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. is sitting out the Giants-Jets preseason game with a sprained left ankle.
The dynamic Giants receiver did not practice this week after being hurt Monday night in a preseason loss to the Browns in Cleveland.
Giants coach Ben McAdoo has said little about the injury other than his top receiver is getting treatment and is day to day.
MINNEAPOLIS – The one skill the Giants have practiced before all others daily since training camp began more than two months ago is the one they have yet to master.
No matter how much coach Ben McAdoo preaches ball security, it’s as if the Giants are still failing to heed the message.
Despite excellent preseason, Giants’ King waiting for cuts
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Looking at the New York Giants' preseason statistics, wide receiver Tavarres King seemingly deserves a spot on the 53-man roster.
The 26-year-old who spent last season on the practice has been one of the biggest surprises of training camp. He led the offensively challenged team with seven receptions for 126 yards and three touchdowns.
