Can the New York Giants Kareem Martin Color Rush Jersey , a heavy underdog Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, come up with an upset? he things to watch on Sunday.Clocking in or already checked out?This is a dangerous game for the Giants. They were officially eliminated last week from a playoff race they were barely in. They are on the road Sunday. They are facing a team that has won seven of eight and is making a legitimate playoff push. There are many things about this matchup from a personnel standpoint that don’t look promising for the Giants.Perhaps the biggest question, though, is will the Giants really show up in Indianapolis? Coach Pat Shurmur has continued to stress the importance of these games despite the lack of playoff implications, stressing the importance of building a winning culture and learning how to win various types of games. His message to players all season has been “play for each other.”With their fate already decided for this season, can the Giants summon the will to put forth their best effort on Sunday? Asked about it this week, players have — of course — said they would continue to do just that.We will see on Sunday if they mean it, or if those were just hollow words.BBV Radio — ‘Dwayne Haskins or bust’40 tackles?Colts’ rookie linebacker Darius Leonard, unhappy about being snubbed for the Pro Bowl despite having seven sacks, leading the league in tackles and being a top candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year, said this week he wanted 40 tackles against the Giants.Leonard can’t get 40 tackles — at least, I don’t think he can. The Colts’ second-round pick has been in double digits seven times this season, including a season-high of 19 tackles in a game. Memo to the Giants: Leonard wears No. 53 — and he’s coming for Eli Manning and Saquon Barkley. Trench warfareThe Giants were absolutely manhandled on both sides of the line of scrimmage last Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The defense allowed 215 yards rushing, 170 of it by Derrick Henry. The pass rush barely laid a glove on Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota. The offensive line couldn’t open any holes for Barkley (14 carries, 31 yards) or keep Manning comfortable in the pocket.Things aren’t getting any easier this Sunday.The Colts feature one of the league’s best offensive lines, ranked sixth in the league in run-blocking and third in pass protection by Football Outsiders. Quarterback Andrew Luck has been sacked a league-low 16 times and hit 68 times. Manning has been sacked 46 times and hit 89.Football Outsiders ranks the Indianapolis defensive line No. 8 vs. the run and No. 9 in pass rush. Can the Giants tackle?The Giants missed 12 tackles last week against Tennessee and defensive coordinator James Bettcher admitted that more than 100 of the rushing yards the Giants surrendered were because of that failure. The Giants have missed 118 tackles this season (8.4 per game) and are ranked 27th in tackling by Pro Football Focus.Marlon Mack is 40 pounds lighter than Tennessee’s Derrick Henry, but he is coming off a season-best 27-carry, 139-yard game against the Dallas Cowboys. Tackling him when they have a chance would be a good idea for Giants’ defenders.Offense without Odell Two weeks ago, the Giants scored 40 points against the Washington Redskins with Odell Beckham Jr. sitting at home watching the game. Last week, again without Beckham, the Giants were shut out. Can they find a happy medium with Beckham again almost certainly sidelined by his quad injury? The Giants still have Saquon Barkley, whom the Titans keyed heavily on last week. They still have Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram.Can they open some running lanes for Barkley, which they couldn’t do last week? Can they protect Manning, which they really didn’t do consistently vs. Tennessee? Can they catch the ball, after dropping six passes last week vs. the Titans? Can Manning deliver the ball on target when there are plays to be made, which he failed to do on a couple of occasions last week?If the Giants can do those things against a good Indianapolis defense they can have some success. If not? Well, let’s not think about that. CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns returned as an expansion team in 1999. They became a real one Tuesday night.It only took 20 mostly tortuous years — and one tremendous trade.With a shocking, blockbuster deal for superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Robert Thomas Color Rush Jersey , the Browns flipped the NFL on its helmet and instantaneously changed their national perception. They’re the talk of the league, and for the first time in forever, it’s for the right reasons.No longer a punching bag, the Browns are punching back. From hopeless to hope-filled. Finally.Shortly after the league’s free-agent signing period and its new calendar year opened on Wednesday, the Browns made their acquisition of Beckham from the New York Giants official. It’s a done deal, and it’s starting to sink in for Cleveland’s impassioned and pained fan base, which has been waiting decades for its beloved football team to return to glory.The Browns acquired Beckham and defensive end Olivier Vernon in exchange for guard Kevin Zeitler, safety Jabrill Peppers, a 2019 first-round pick (No. 17 overall) and a third-rounder (No. 95).Beckham makes Cleveland cooler, the Browns a must-watch on TV, and in the words of quarterback Baker Mayfield, “dangerous.”One-handed catches. Prime-time matchups. Sold-out games. The Browns changed overnight.In landing Beckham, one of the game’s most electrifying players, Cleveland has risen from unimaginable depths in just a year. The Browns were coming off a historic 0-16 season last March, still searching for an elusive franchise quarterback and were prepared to enter the 2018 season with coach Hue Jackson, who had guided them to a 1-31 record over two seasons.They were the league’s laughingstocks. General manager John Dorsey has turned the tables. He began strategically plotting a run at Beckham in December, and seemingly came out of nowhere to deliver a blindside blow.“He’s probably if not the one, one or two best receivers in the National Football League,” Dorsey said. “Very rarely do you get a chance to acquire a player of this magnitude. He’s at a relatively young age. He’s got a lot of football left in him. Great hands, great work ethic, committed, competitive, he really wants to be great. And that’s all you can ask for.”One of the architects of Kansas City’s turnaround, Dorsey has revived Cleveland’s roster. The franchise now boasts Beckham, who will be reunited with receiver Jarvis Landry, his close friend and LSU teammate, Mayfield, Pro Bowl defensive end Myles Garrett and maybe former Chefs running back Kareem Hunt Cody Latimer Color Rush Jersey , who still faces a likely league suspension.The Browns are loaded with young, exciting players who may do more than contend for a playoff spot next season, and could one day take Cleveland to its first Super Bowl.Some day. Maybe soon.Moments after news of the trade agreement broke Tuesday, the odds in Las Vegas for the Browns winning the Super Bowl fell from 25 to 1 to 14 to 1.For Beckham, sometimes dynamic, sometimes diva, Cleveland represents a fresh start and clean slate.The three-time Pro Bowler, who can turn a short catch into a long gain, gives Mayfield an almost matchless weapon. He has amassed at least 1,000 yards receiving four times, the exception being an injury-shortened 2017 season. Last year, after signing a five-year, $90 million contract extension, he had 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games.But there were issues. He never truly connected with first-year Giants coach Pat Shurmur and lacked chemistry with quarterback Eli Manning, whose skills came into question.Now he’s hooked up with Mayfield, one of his offseason workout partners.“I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to be part of this organization and the direction they are headed,” Beckham said. “I’ve already witnessed the energy fans bring in that city having been to some playoff games at The Q. Browns fans deserve a winning football team. This is a fresh start for me and it’s going to be great to join Baker and Jarvis on this team.”Dorsey, whose decision to take Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick last season altered Cleveland’s trajectory, plucked Beckham from one of the league’s most stable franchises without mortgaging the present or future. He somehow convinced Giants GM Dave Gettlemen to basically hand him the game’s highest-paid receiver and best playmakers in exchange for two picks and Peppers, a former first-round selection of Cleveland’s regime.The price was minimal by mega-trade standards and came just two weeks after Dorsey said, “We’re not ready to go for it.”But he changed his mind, perhaps because of a less-hostile landscape in the AFC North, where the Steelers have been rocked by the departures of Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell; Baltimore’s loss of defenders C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and Eric Weddle; and Cincinnati embarking on what could be a long rebuilding project.Mostly, though, Dorsey trusts Mayfield and believes he can be the one to “awaken this sleeping giant.”The Browns are done being down.
