The New York Giants lost to the Detroit Lions at home on Monday night, leaving them with an 0-2 record to start the season and a rough road ahead if they hope to make the playoffs. After the game, head coach Ben McAdoo had harsh words for two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning for mishandling a crucial play in the third quarter.

SEATTLE – The 49ers have made a change to their offensive line for the team’s game Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Laken Tomlinson is in, and Zane Beadles is out.

Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. returned from a sprained left ankle, but New York still struggled offensively. Stafford found Marvin Jones for a 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter and passed to Eric Ebron for a go-ahead 7-yarder in the second. Matt Prater added a

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will make his season debut Monday against the Detroit Lions after he tested his sprained ankle during pregame warmups at MetLife Stadium. Beckham will tape his ankles for stability for the first time in his career, according to ESPN's Eric Lundsten. Before the game, he was catching passes from quarterback Eli Manning and was seen stretching with strength coach Aaron Wellman alongside cornerback Janoris Jenkins and offensive guard D.J. Fluker.

The 24-year-old receiver suffered the injury
After going viral on the internet during his Monday Night Football debut, the world will be wondering whether ESPN sideline reporter Sergio Dipp will be making a return to airwaves for the Detroit Lions and New York Giants matchup.
