Ben McAdoo's first-string defense dominated on Friday, with two three-and-outs and two interceptions by Valentino Blake and Devin Taylor. NY hasn't had a really great tight end since Mark Bavaro, so being able to plug Engram into the starting lineup should give the Giants the ability to stretch the field for more potency. On the Steelers fifth drive, Dobbs ran for a 16-yard gain on third down, and found Cobi Hamilton for 44 yards. I feel like I was on the backburner for the longest until we played the Rams and then I got the recognition.
In his first series late in the first half, Smith completed passes to wide receiver Darius Powe on a crossing route, tight end Evan Engram on a play-action rollout and running back Wayne Gallman on a halfback screen.
Moats laughed off Tomlin's comments, but he didn't apologize for his performance. It's a natural part of the maturation process.
But it was a very good place to start, particularly for Watt and Hilton. A lot of good contributions, guys put physical conditioning on display.
European markets open lower on Friday
The single-session equity put/call ratio jumped to 0.83 - the highest since April - and the 21-day moving average rose to 0.65. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), widely considered the best gauge of fear in the market, popped almost 11 percent to 11.02.
"It was really positive, but not unlike what he's shown us on the fields of Latrobe", Tomlin said. Orleans Darkwa - not starter Paul Perkins - gained the most traction among Giants running backs (three rushes for 18 yards). The Steelers 4th round pick Josh Dobbs went 8/15 with a TD and two INTs. Boswell also converted both extra point attempts. Smith started the game, completing 10/16 passes for 114 yards. Two players, Aldrick Rosas and Mike Nugent, split the kicking duties. Moats also recorded three sacks, four solo tackles and two assists tackles. TJ Watt filled the box score on defense demonstrating the hustle and instincts that made him a star at Wisconsin. On the next defensive play, Watt went unblocked and didn't fall for the run fake, resulting in a one-on-one tackle of Johnson. "In regards to the sacks, the first one (in the first half) was more of a coverage sack, but the second two were on the (Giants') second tackle that was in there". "I focus on making sure I'm out here every day, making sure I get better and when I get the opportunity, I try to be productive".
Notably, the Steelers saw Martavis Bryant out on the field, in uniform, during pregame warm ups.
Bryant talked for the first time Friday since he was cleared by the league. With work ethic like that, Engram could become a starter from day one, perhaps even as a critical member of an offense looking for redemption after a lackluster season previous year. "He is physically ready. That's what we're trying to do each and every game".
Eclipse glasses becoming harder to find
A Kansas woman told station KWCH 12 she bought 500 solar eclipse glasses for kids at a local school - which turned out to be fake. Any filter less opaque than that may cause severe eye damage that would not become evident until hours later, Chou warned.
