Giants 22 Aldrick Rosas Jersey , The New York Giants still have one more preseason game to play, which means that players on the roster bubble have one more game in which they can impress coaches before the big cutdown before the regular season. But Friday night's game against the New York Jets might have been several player's last, best, chance to make a difference in their roster battles.OffenseOffensive Line - Patrick Omameh struggles with the startersThe Giants' starting lineup might be set, but the battle down the depth chart rages on. Not only are players battling against one another, but also with players who might be cut around the league.After the first half the Giants have to be concerned about the right guard spot on their starting offensive line. Omameh proved to be a liability in both the run and the pass. He was repeatedly beaten by the Jets’ starting defense, and struggled both as a pass protector and run blocker. He will likely remain the starting right guard, but he has not closed the door on his competition.Meanwhile, Brett Jones and John Greco continue to be a solid duo at center and right guard (respectively) on the second team offensive line. The Giants were inconsistent moving the ball on the ground in the second half, but at first blush, those two seemed to win their battles. Wide receiver - Hunter Sharp has an exciting return, flops as a receiverThe Giants have featured a two-tight end package throughout the preseason, suggesting that they won't rely on the wide receiver position as heavily as in years past. However, there is still a huge number of players vying for spots behind Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Cody Latimer -- Not to mention for the role of return man on special teams. Wide receiver/returner Hunter Sharp had a couple nice returns, which might help his case to make the roster, but he also missed a pair of receptions which lead to stalled drives. His competition, Kalif Raymond also had a pair of exciting returns, but also failed to haul in his lone reception.Elsewhere on the receiving depth chart, Alonzo Russell and Russell Shepard both impressed with long receptions. Running back - Jonathan Stewart stumbles in startRealistically Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey , at this point only two questions face the Giants at the running back position. The first is whetherWayne Gallman can force his way past Jonathan Stewart on the depth chart. The second is whether one of the young running backs, FB Shane Smith, or H-Back Garrett Dickerson can force the team to carry four backs. Wayne Gallman once again made a strong push for the RB 2 or 1b (as the case may be) job behind Saquon Barkley after Jonathan Stewart lost seven yards on 3 carries and lost a fumble. The Giants’ offensive line didn’t do much for Gallman, who used his agility and burst to hit holes that were only open briefly or to run through arm tackles at the line of scrimmage. Newly added running back Jhurell Pressley was the third running back on the field. His speed and quickness impressed, quickly hitting the hole, using subtle moves to elude would-be tacklers, and carrying defenders when he had to. If he can show something as a returner in practice, he might force the Giants hand.As an aside, Friday night had to be a rough night for Orleans Darkwa. He has had workouts with a couple teams, but he had to sit at home while Stewart — who, for all intents and purposes took his job — has averaged -.5 yards per carry and lost a fumble. DefenseDalvin Tomlinson and Kerry Wynn continue their strong pre-seasons The Giants' defensive line is proving to be much deeper, and much better, than many would have thought before the start of the preseason. The Giants might be forced to make some difficult decisions and cut talented players. The winners on the defensive line had to be Tomlinson and Wynn. The two have been human wrecking balls this pre-season, and this game was no different. Tomlinson gave the Jets’ starting offensive line all it could handle, making an impact in both the pass and in the running game.If any of the defensive linemen hurt themselves, it might have been Robert Thomas who had a penalty to extend a Jets’ drive which lead to points.Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris picked on in the second halfThe Giants' depth at the cornerback position is worrisome to say the least. The team might even have some valid concerns about the starting duo of Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple. But even if those two exceed expectations, the team might still have concerns. Eli Apple got dinged with a holding penalty early, but rebounded with a nice pass breakup. Other than that the cornerbacks at the top of the giants’ depth chart didn’t really distinguish themselves either way. Sam Darnold completed just 50 percent of his passes for 86 total yards, most of which came on mismatches against linebackers. All told, the Giants’ secondary did not embarrass itself.In the battle down the depth chart, reserve corner Chris Lewis-Harris was the loser on the night. He was targeted frequently by Teddy Bridgewater, and gave up a few receptions. Michael Thomas shows up againLandon Collins is entrenched as not just one starting safety Aldrick Rosas Jersey , but also one of the best players on the Giants' defense and in the League as a whole. Beyond Collins, the team is still searching for answers at the free safety position. Curtis Riley got the start and was largely invisible, which is not a bad look for a free safety. If there was a loser, it was Darian Thompson who has watched his starting job slip away while he was injured. Meanwhile, Michael Thomas continues to flash with the second-team defense. A few times he came flying downhill to help make stops, impressing on both special teams and as a defender.Giants at Texans: The plays that changed the game After two weeks of looking like the 2017 New York Giants, a new team emerged Sunday in Houston. The Giants walked away with a 27-22 victory, one that wasn’t really as close as the final score would indicate. After not getting the lead in the first two games, the Giants had just one drive on each side of the ball without a lead against the Texans. For the first time this season, we’ll have some positive scores to break down. With a win on the ledger, the Giants can have some hope — 1-2 teams finish with an average of 7.2 wins on the season and 25 percent of them make the playoffs, opposed to 4.9 wins and 2 percent at 0-3. Houston was billed as the better 0-2 team heading into the game, but the Giants looked like the better team for most of the way.These are some of the most important plays of the game by Win Probability Added (WPA) and Expected Points Added (EPA). Explainers here (WPA) and here (EPA).Both WPA and EPA presented from perspective of the offense.Another early big play - 11:52, first quarterWPA: 8.18 percent | EPA: 2.34For the third straight game, the Giants defense allowed a big play on the opening drive of the game. There was the big pass to Keelan Cole against the Jaguars, then the long Tavon Austin touchdown against the Cowboys. Against the Texans, it was a 39-yard gain to rookie tight end Jordan Thomas. On a first-and-10 from the Giants’ 44, Deshaun Watson ran play-action, avoided pressure from Dalvin Tomlinson, moved to his right, and found Thomas, who had snuck out on a delayed route. With the rest of the action in the middle and to the left Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , Thomas had a free sideline to run down to the 3-yard line.Luckily for the Giants, two run plays that netted zero yards and a bad fade to Will Fuller forced the Texans to kick a field goal instead of punching it in for a touchdown. Still, it was the third straight week a Giants opponent had scored to open the game.Barkley answers - 4:17, first quarterWPA: 7.57 percent | EPA: 2.42The Giants came back on the next drive — 10 plays and 75 yards capped off by a 15-yard Saquon Barkley rushing touchdown on first down.On the play, the Giants came out in shotgun with three receivers to the left, and Evan Engram in-line to the right. For the purposes of the play, Engram acted as the tackle by picking up the defensive end. That allowed Chad Wheeler to slide inside and pick up the defensive tackle, which allowed Patrick Omameh to move up to the second level and seal the hole against the crashing linebacker. It was just enough space for Barkley to get into the open field and that turned into a broken tackle against Kareem Jackson and eventually the touchdown for the Giants’ first lead of the season.Ellison gets involved - 1:24, second quarterWPA: 4.56 percent | EPA: 3.58Field goals capped the next two Giants’ drives, one of which that got into the red zone. But on their fourth drive of the game, just before halftime, the Giants got the ball into the end zone again. While some red zone play-calling had been questionable earlier in the season — and arguably earlier in this game — the Giants ran the perfect play on first-and-10 from the Houston 16.The Giants came out in an empty formation, but still in 11 personnel (three wide receivers) with the three receivers on the left side. On the right was Saquon Barkley on the outside and Rhett Ellison in the slot. This stretched the defense horizontally and Houston only played a single-high safety, who understandably shaded over to the three receiver side. Once Ellison cleared linebacker Zach Cunningham after a quick false step to the outside, he had a clear path to the end zone.Two big third-down conversions28 yards to Will Fuller on third-and-3 - 10:48, third quarterWPA: 4.9 percent | EPA: 3.07On a third-and-3 from the Houston 31, the Texans really needed a first down. They were already down 20-6 with a chance of letting the game get away with another punt. Deshaun Watson dropped back and avoided pressure from Kerry Wynn on his blind side. On the left side of the field, Fuller sat against zone coverage right at the first down marker. When Fuller saw Watson leave the pocket, he started the scramble drill and ran across the field with Watson. B.J. Goodson, the linebacker in zone for Fuller’s original route, couldn’t stay with the speedy wide receiver and Fuller was able to turn up the field, break through a Curtis Riley tackle Youth Kerry Wynn Jersey , and get down to the Giants’ 41-yard line. It was a big play to flip the field, but the drive would stall and the Texans kicked a 54-yard field goal to make the score 20-9.20 yards to DeAndre Hopkins on third-and-8 - 4:55, third quarterWPA: 6.9 percent | EPA: 2.56Houston’s next drive saw another need to convert on a third and longer. Fuller and Hopkins lined up stacked to the right — a dangerous combination — and that caused Janoris Jenkins to play well off the receiver. Hopkins got an inside release and broke and easy post route with room to run after the catch. The 20-yard gain brought the Texans from the Houston 47 to the Giants’ 33. However鈥amar Miller’s fumble - 3:56, third quarterWPA: minus-8.33 percent | EPA: minus-4.49...two plays later, the Giants would take the ball away. After a 6-yard gain on a pass to Lamar Miller and a broken Alec Ogletree tackle, Kerry Wynn punched the ball out from behind. Donte Deayon fell on the fumble and the Giants took over. Houston had a 22 percent chance of winning before the fumble, but that dropped to 13.6 percent after the play. What hurt more was expected points of more than a field goal before the play that disappeared with one punch out from Kerry Wynn.Alec Ogletree’s interception - 14:15, fourth quarterWPA: minus-8.75 | EPA: minus-4.55Miller’s fumble wouldn’t be the most costly turnover of the game for Houston. That would go to Deshaun Watson’s interception to Alec Ogletree in the end zone at the start of the fourth quarter. But to appreciate the impact of the interception, you should also understand the preceding plays. Houston had a 1st and goal from the 8-yard line, but an illegal block penalty on Miller pushed the ball back to the 18. On the next play, B.J. Hill busted through the line — lined up as a 4-3 defensive end — and sacked Watson for a loss of seven. That set up a second-and-goal from the 25.Hill again caused pressure off the edge on second down, which forced Watson to flee the pocket. Watson fired the ball into the end zone to Miller, but the pass was underthrown and Ogletree was in position to come down with the ball in the end zone.Houston’s failed two-point conversion - 7:37, fourth quarterWPA: minus-5.49 | EPA: minus-0.95Houston came back to score on their next drive — seven plays and 67 yards in just over three and a half minutes. The touchdown brought the score to 20-15 and a two-point conversion would bring the game to within a field goal. But the conversion would not be successful. The Texans tried a delayed shovel pass that was popularized by the Kansas City Chiefs and some other teams last season, but this version the Texans ran looked like someone who tried to cram for a test the night before and only truly understood maybe 65 to 70 percent of the material. The route was slow to develop, the misdirection didn’t really misdirect anyone, and there was no hole for Lamar Miller to squeeze through after he caught the ball.Shepard seals it - 2:13, fourth quarterWPA: 3.1 percent | EPA: 3.18The Giants put the game away with just over two minutes left in the game. After holding on to the ball for nearly five and a half minutes, they faced a 3rd and 6 from the Houston 7. The play was another perfect route against zone coverage. Sterling Shepard was the slot receiver to the right side on a 2x1 set. His route perfectly wrapped around slot corner Aaron Colvin (22) and sat right in front of Benardrick McKinney (55) in the end zone for a touchdown. The score made it a two possession game and pushed the Giants’ win probability up to 97.9 percent. Shepard’s touchdown would be important because the Texans would come back to score on their next drive, but they didn’t have enough time to get a second possession.
