EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Things definitely didn't go the way Pat Shurmur wanted in his first season as New York Giants coach.
The Giants (5-11) finished last in the NFC East for the second straight year. They missed the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons and were among the NFL's worst teams despite a spectacular rookie season from running back and No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The NFL trading deadline passed and the New York Giants decided to stand pat despite speculation they would be wheeling and dealing with a second straight season going down the tubes.
Linebacker Olivier Vernon, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and safety Landon Collins will finish the season with the Giants, who are 1-7 for the second straight year and have virtually no chance of making the playoffs in Pat Shurmur's first season as coach.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants cornerback B.W. Webb is going to be targeted by the Houston Texans this weekend.
It's a given.
Starting cornerback Eli Apple is going to miss the game with a hamstring injury and Webb seemingly is going to replace him in the starting lineup. That gives Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson two options. Throw at Pro Bowl cornerback Janoris Jenkins or go after Webb, a five-year veteran who didn't play a down last season in limited time with Cleveland.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott accepted the challenge.
The Dallas quarterback threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the third play of the game and the Cowboys sacked Eli Manning six times in a 20-13 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night.
The Dallas defense was strong again, just as in an opening loss at Carolina, as the Cowboys (1-1) avoided the first 0-2 start in seven seasons under coach Jason Garrett.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is inactive against the New York Giants after sustaining a concussion in the opener.
Tight end Rico Gathers is active for Dallas on Sunday night for the first time in his three-year NFL career. The former Baylor basketball player missed all of last season after getting a concussion in training camp.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Janoris Jenkins is back with the New York Giants and ready to play against the Dallas Cowboys.
A day after hastily walking off the field to deal with an undisclosed family emergency, Jenkins was back at practice Friday as the Giants (0-1) held their last major workout for the Sunday night game at Dallas (0-1).
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been trying to keep his focus on football since the body of a 25-year-old friend was found in his New Jersey home last month.
Jenkins' brother, William H. Jenkins, was charged with aggravated manslaughter days after the body of Roosevelt Rene was found in the football player's Fair Lawn home on June 26.
HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — The brother of New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins had an alleged altercation in his brother's New Jersey home that led to the death of a 25-year-old man.
In releasing the complaint and the warrant against 34-year-old William H. Jenkins, of Fair Lawn, on Thursday, the Bergen County prosecutor's office says Jenkins showed extreme indifference to human life in recklessly causing the death of Roosevelt Rene.
FAIR LAWN, N.J. (AP) — The brother of New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins was arrested and charged Wednesday with manslaughter in the death of a 25-year-man whose body was found in the NFL player's New Jersey home.
The Bergen County prosecutor's office said Wednesday 34-year-old William H. Jenkins, of Fair Lawn, was charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of Roosevelt Rene, whose body was discovered Tuesday.
FAIR LAWN, N.J. (AP) — A body has been found at a New Jersey home where New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins lives.
The Bergen County prosecutor's office says it is investigating a death at the house in Fair Lawn, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) north of MetLife Stadium. Property records show Jenkins has lived at the house the last two years.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have placed cornerback Janoris Jenkins on injured reserve.
The Giants announced the move Wednesday, saying that Jenkins is having ankle surgery. He was hurt on Thanksgiving in a loss to the Redskins.
Defensive tackle Khyri Thornton was signed and took his place on the roster for Sunday's game in Oakland.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed defensive backs Brandon Dixon and Darryl Morris.
The Giants announced Tuesday that Dixon was signed off their practice squad. Morris, who has played for the 49ers, Texans and Colts, was released by Indianapolis on Oct. 3. Dixon played in 14 games with Tampa Bay in 2014.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Janoris Jenkins is a cornerback for the New York Giants who returned an interception 53 yards for a touchdown against the Washington Redskins.
And that one play made him responsible for more points than Eli Manning and the rest of the team's offense produced Thursday night.
That one play also meant Jenkins produced more yards than Manning and Co. did in the entire second half of a 20-10 loss to the Redskins.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Janoris Jenkins isn't apologizing for having a bad game against the San Francisco 49ers and he is not promising to make up for it this week by playing harder against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend.
According to the New York Giants cornerback, things don't always go the way you want them to on the football field. So it is best to move on.
No apologizes. No regrets. It may sound as if he doesn't care, but that's the way he plays the game.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have reinstated cornerback Janoris Jenkins from suspension.
The Giants announced the move Tuesday, one of several the team made after its 51-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams highlighted several roster moves.
Jenkins was suspended indefinitely last week for missing a workout on Monday and not informing coach Ben McAdoo that he would be absent.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants' defense has hit rock bottom, at least for now.
It allowed four passes of 35 yards or more, two runs in excess of 20 yards, and 473 yards of total offense in an awful 51-17 loss to the surprising Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
The loss was their worst at home since a 52-21 setback to Cleveland ended the 1964 season, in which they went 2-10-2.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have placed starting center Weston Richburg on injured reserve with a concussion.
The Giants announced Saturday that Richburg would miss his fourth straight game. Bret Jones has started for Richburg since he was hurt.
The Giants and Rams face off Sunday following their bye week.
While the Giants desperately needed some time off to figure out why they have been the NFL's biggest disappointment, the Rams probably could have skipped the hiatus after becoming the league's most pleasant surprise.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants linebacker and defensive captain Jonathan Casillas stood in front of his locker for more than 10 minutes answering questions, and only one dealt with playing the surprising Los Angeles Rams this weekend.
When your team is 1-6 and top cornerback Janoris Jenkins gets suspended coming off a bye week, there usually aren't a lot of questions about football, especially when it's the second player suspension in less than a month for violating team rules.
NFL schedule makers are really testing fantasy football players with another six teams on a bye during Week 9. Here are several players to start and others to avoid as you continue your march toward your league's playoffs.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed defensive end Jordan Williams off their practice squad.
Williams fills the vacancy created Tuesday when cornerback Janoris Jenkins was suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules. He did not show up for practice on Monday after a bye week.
Coach Ben McAdoo said he did not hear from Jenkins until Tuesday morning. McAdoo had said Monday it was an excused absence.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
The suspension takes effect immediately, meaning Jenkins will miss Sunday's home game against the Rams.
Jenkins was told Tuesday he was suspended. Coach Ben McAdoo said he will review the status of the suspension next week.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos were struggling on offense even when they were healthy. Now, they'll have to navigate a spate of injuries to their quarterback, two receivers and two tackles.
The Latest on the NFL's sixth Sunday of the regular season (all times Eastern):
Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian has returned for the second half after hurting his left shoulder while trying to make a tackle against the New York Giants.
Siemian sat out the last series of the first half as trainers examined his non-throwing shoulder. He was injured when he lunged in an attempt to stop an interception return for a touchdown by Janoris Jenkins.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Middle linebacker B.J. Goodson and right tackle Bobby Hart are going to miss the New York Giants game Sunday against the Eagles in Philadelphia.
Goodson is out for the second straight game with a shin injury. Hart sprained his right ankle in the opener against Dallas. He started against Detroit but re-injured it.
Coach Ben McAdoo said Friday that backup linebacker J.T. Thomas also is out with a groin injury.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. is active for the New York Giants' game against the Detroit Lions.
This will be the first time the three-time Pro Bowl receiver has played since spraining his left ankle in a preseason game on Aug. 21. He missed the season opener last week against Dallas.
Beckham has led the Giants in receiving in each of his three seasons. Without him, New York was held to 233 yards in a 19-3 loss to the Cowboys.
NEW YORK GIANTS (11-6)
New faces: WR Brandon Marshall, TE Evan Engram, DT Dalvin Tomlinson, PK Aldrick Rosas, QB Geno Smith, OL D.J. Fluker, TE Rhett Ellison.
Key losses: DT Jonathan Hankins, RT Marshall Newhouse, PK Robbie Gould.
Strengths: This is going to be one of best defenses in league, with S Landon Collins, DEs Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul, and CB Janoris Jenkins looking very good in camp. QB Eli Manning has more options than Odell Beckham Jr. to target.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has every right to be optimistic about the upcoming season.
His unit carried the team to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth in Ben McAdoo's first season as head coach, and there is star power in the starting unit.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — When the New York Giants signed Damon Harrison as a free agent in the offseason, they got more than one of the NFL's top defensive tackles.
The 343-pounder who is known to teammates as "Snacks" is somewhat of a character. He will hang around with the defensive backs as much as he does with the lineman.
That was the case Friday as the Giants (11-5) started wrapping up preparations for this weekend's wild-card game against the Packers (10-6) in Green Bay on Sunday.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The way Aaron Rodgers has been playing lately, the New York Giants aren't going to come up with a game plan that is going to shut down the Green Bay quarterback in the NFC wild-card game.
There is no Kryptonite to stop Rodgers, Giants rookie coach Ben McAdoo noted this week.
He should know, too. Before joining the Giants as their offensive coordinator in 2014 and becoming their head coach this season, he spent two years as Rodgers' quarterback coach.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Making the playoffs with a week to spare has given rookie coach Ben McAdoo and the New York Giants options heading into the regular-season finale against Washington Redskins.
The Giants (10-5) are locked into the No. 5 seed in the NFC. They are going to open the postseason on the road against the lowest-seeded division winner.
If McAdoo wants, he can either rest any of his nicked-up players or limit their playing time with a token appearance at Washington.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles get back their starting right tackle for Thursday night's game against the New York Giants.
Lane Johnson returns from a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancers policy and will start.
New York's key inactive is cornerback Janoris Jenkins, their best cover man. He has a back problem.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants seemingly are heading into their quick turnaround game with the Philadelphia Eagles short-handed.
Coach Ben McAdoo disclosed Monday evening that third-down back Shane Vereen reinjured his triceps in his second game back after tearing the muscle in the third week of the season and having surgery.
McAdoo did not know if Vereen would require surgery again, and he was not willing to say the six-year veteran would miss the rest of the season.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Defense wins championships, and right now the New York Giants are convincing many that they might be the NFL's best.
Forget that they are ranked in the middle of the league. In the past two games, Steve Spagnuolo's group has limited division leaders Dallas and Detroit to a total of 13 points, and Sunday's 17-6 win over the Lions on Sunday came in a game where top cornerback Janoris Jenkins left early in the second quarter with a back injury.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — When people start talking about the success of the New York Giants' defense, the names of Olivier Vernon, Janoris Jenkins, Damon Harrison, Jonathan Casillas and Landon Collins get mentioned frequently.
One name that rarely gets mentioned is Brad Wing, a guy who is never on the field with the defense.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Terrelle Pryor's talent is undeniable. The Browns are concerned about his temper.
A day after Cincinnati cornerback Adam Jones profanely berated Cleveland's wide receiver following the Bengals' 23-10 win by calling him "garbage" numerous times, Browns coach Hue Jackson said Pryor has been involved in far too many similar situations.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Looking at the New York Giants' defensive effort against the Dallas Cowboys, any one of the 11 players on the field could have been singled out.
Defensive end Olivier Vernon was dominant up front. Tackle Damon Harrison plugged the middle. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins delivered another shutdown performance against Dez Bryant.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — There are a lot of reasons for the New York Giants' success on defense this season, and then there is Damon Harrison.
Affectionately called 'Snacks' by his teammates, Harrison isn't what one would consider a glamour player on coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's unit.
Other players are more noticeable. Second-year safety Landon Collins is having a career year with 87 tackles and five interceptions.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Janoris Jenkins is humble enough and smart enough not to call himself the best cornerback in the NFL.
So let Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher speak for the former free agent whom the New York Giants signed in the offseason to a five-year, $62.5 million contract.
In discussing Sunday's game between the Giants (3-3) and Rams (3-3) in London, Fisher was glowing when asked about Jenkins, who played his first four seasons with Fisher in St. Louis.
