Why Tavarres King’s Giants return was like ‘riding a bike’

EAST RUTHERFORD — Tavarres King has had an interesting Giants tenure. He spent almost all of 2015 on the practice squad. He made the 53-man roster in 2016 out of training camp, but played sparingly – until he made a big 44-yard catch in Week 17 agains…

Darron Lee progressing; Robby Anderson justifiably frustrated

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Jets player more heavily criticized the first month of the season than Darron Lee. Against the Jaguars, Lee had seven tackles and a tackle for a loss. This Sunday against the Patriots, he again made a couple highlight plays.

What was Giants coach Ben McAdoo’s message to players before upset of Broncos?

It appeared that Giants coach Ben McAdoo was on the verge of losing the locker room last week. Instead, his undermanned squad rallied for an improbable 23-10 win at Denver on Sunday night. McAdoo used the outside doubts as fuel to rally the troops. The…

Examining Ben McAdoo’s big change: Why did he cede Giants’ play calling duties?

McAdoo’s answer echoed the justification he gave on the NBC broadcast. Some scratched their heads at the idea the Giants “didn’t” need McAdoo during the first five weeks of the season, especially when it became obvious around Week 2 or 3 that McAdoo should have given up play calling
