EAST RUTHERFORD Youth Corey Ballentine Jersey , N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants continued rebuilding their much-maligned defense on the third day of the NFL draft, found a deep threat wide receiver to stretch the field after the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns and found a great feel-good story.General manager Dave Gettleman had six picks on the final day of the draft, and kicked it off by taking Notre Dame cornerback Julian Love in the fourth round.The Giants were ranked 24th in defense last season, giving up an average of 371.4 yards. They had 30 sacks, tied for the second fewest in the league.Wisconsin inside linebacker Ryan Connelly was the first of two fifth-round picks, followed by Auburn wide receiver and sprinter Darius Slayton. New York grabbed another speedster in the sixth round, taking Washburn cornerback and return man Corey Ballentine.The Giants (5-11) wrapped up the draft, picking Kentucky tackle George Asafo-adjei and Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton in the seventh round.Asafo-adjei was the feel-good story. He was born in New York City and raised by a single mother who worked three jobs. He didn’t get a chance to meet his sister until he was 14 years old because she was living in Ghana and the family could not get her to the United States. So that was something. The New York Giants looked mostly lifeless in an embarrassing 34-13 Thursday night loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Unlike last week’s game against the Carolina Panthers when all the big and meaningful plays came late in the game, most of those came in the first half on Thursday — the Giants started the second quarter with an 18 percent win probability and it didn’t get much closer.These are the biggest plays in the game, by Win Probability Added (WPA) and Expected Points Added (EPA) Womens Corey Ballentine Jersey , per data from nflscrapR. Explainers here (WPA) and here (EPA).Both WPA and EPA presented from the perspective of the offense.Not a great start - 14:24, first quarterEPA: minus-6.18 | WPA: minus-14.9 percentThe tone of this game was set fairly early. On the second play from scrimmage — a second-and-2 — Eli Manning forced a short pass to tight end Scott Simonson into tight coverage — Next Gen Stats tracked 0.53 yards of separation. Simonson started because Evan Engram was still out and Rhett Ellison was also inactive Thursday night. Linebacker Jordan Hicks (58) was able to charge and deflect the ball, which fell into the hands of Kamu Grugier-Hill (54) for an interception. An improbable touchdown - 13:27, first quarterEPA: 3.47 | WPA: 11.9 percentThe interception set the Eagles up with the ball on the Giants’ 16-yard line. Three plays later, Philadelphia put the ball in the end zone, though it wasn’t easy. A recently returned Olivier Vernon pushed Carson Wentz from the pocket to his right. Wentz then threw back across his body to the middle of the field, where Alshon Jeffery was charging in the end zone. Per Next Gen Stats, the expected completion percentage of that play was just 18.2 percent, which makes it the 12th least-likely completion of the 2018 season so far.Barkley breaks one, part one - 11:50 White Lawrence Taylor Jerseys , first quarterEPA: 2.58 | WPA: 8.6 percentSaquon Barkley had a big day as really the only functioning piece of the offense — and even that only came when he was breaking big gains and breaking tackles. While Barkley did do plenty on his own, this big 46-yard run was opened by a pull from guard Will Hernandez. The run got the Giants to the Philadelphia 18, but after a 3-yard Wayne Gallman run and two incompletions, the Giants settled for a field goal.A stolen interception - 8:45, first quarterEPA: 4.31 | WPA: 14.8 percentThis play could have been a huge turning point in the game. On a third-and-7 from the Eagles’ own 17, Kareem Martin got a hand on the arm of Wentz as he went to throw a pass. The ball floated up in the air and looked to be heading into the waiting arms of Landon Collins. But since Collins had to stop and change direction for the ball, he couldn’t charge it and could only wait. In that time, Nelson Agholor charged in front, caught the floater, and gained 32 yards. Philadelphia would eventually punt Authentic Corey Ballentine Jersey , but they did so from the 40, better than inside their own 20 or giving the Giants the ball on an interception.Barkley breaks one, part two - 8:06, second quarterEPA: 3.56 | WPA: 9.9 percentBarkley’s second big play was a screen pass taken 55 yards down to the Philadelphia 13. The Giants were only down 14-3 at that point, even after getting a roughing the passer penalty on a failed third down, the Giants were still held out of the end zone. They got down to the 3, but a 21-yard field goal was the call. The Giants would not come closer than eight points for the remainder of the game.Agholor gets free - 5:13, second quarterEPA: 4.21 | WPA: 9.0 percentOn the next drive, Nelson Agholor came through with another play that wasn’t really designed for him. The Eagles faced a third-and-3 from the Philadelphia 32. Wentz rolled out to his right on play-action, and with nothing really open Lawrence Taylor Jerseys 2019 , Agholor altered his route which left Eli Apple well behind him and he was clear for a 58-yard reception down the the Giants’ 10-yard line. Ertz in the end zone - 4:28, second quarterEPA: 2.16 | WPA: 3.0 percentThe next play was maybe mentally a dagger but in reality, the game was already decided. Philadelphia motioned from a full house look to a more traditional formation that put Zach Ertz on the left side of the line. With no wide receivers on that side, it left Ertz one-on-one against Janoris Jenkins. Over his career, Jenkins has been susceptible to double moves and Ertz is one of the best of setting those up in the red zone. That’s exactly what happened and Ertz was wide open for a 10-yard touchdown. The play only added three percent win probability because the Eagles were already at 90 percent before the touchdown.Barkley breaks one, part three - 6:19, third quarterEPA: 3.97 | WPA: 3.2 percentDown 31-6 and despite the wishes of some, the Giants continued with the running game. The result was another ridiculous Barkley run for a 50-yard touchdown. The back finished the game with 130 yards rushing and 99 yards receiving, his sixth-straight game of at least 100 yards from scrimmage. However, this was also just Barkley’s second game with positive expected points added as a runner and the previous game (Week 4) was just a total of 0.63.Late third down conversions - 5:34 White Carl Banks Jerseys , third quarterEPA: 2.53 | WPA: 2.7 percentLate in the game, the Giants couldn’t get off the field on defense. Early in the season, the Giants defense excelled on third down but struggled on first and second. On larger samples, performance on first and second down is more predictive than third down and that appears to be the case for this Giants season on both sides of the ball. On third-and-8, the Giants lined up defenders on the first down marker who then dropped back a few yards and left room for a catch and run, which happened here to Jordan Matthews. And another - 3:29, third quarterEPA: 3.19 | WPA: 3.1 percentOverall, the Eagles were 9-of-16 on third downs in the game but were 6-of-9 in the second half. Here’s a look at the Eagles offensive looking at those second half third down conversion attempts:
