Saints' Sean Payton outcoached conservative Pat Shurmur (1 Viewer)

Giants' offense did little after an excellent first drive, and they'll have to open it up.

Forget the 33-18 final score for a moment and go back to what turned out to be one of the early turning points in the Giants-Saints game.

It’s midway through the first quarter, and MetLife Stadium is filled with optimism from a promising start against a quality opponent. Eli Manning had led a 10-play, 75-yard drive on the Giants’ first possession, throwing a 2-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard in the right corner of the end zone.

The Giants’ defense, which bottled up Drew Brees on his first possession, again stops the ageless All-Pro quarterback on a three-and-out. Forced to punt on fourth-and-2 from their 33, the Saints are surrounded by a rollicking crowd hoping for a positive result after last week’s impressive road win against the Texans.
