Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants: Matt Prater gets lucky bounce

The Giants are 3-point favorite, according to Vegas Insider. Beckham is active for tonight's game against the Lions, to the relief of those who were scrambling to find a replacement wide receiver in free agency.

The Giants played the game without two key defensive starters.

Stafford finished 15 of 21 for 122 yards with no interceptions.

The deal will have an average annual value of $27 million, a source said, putting Stafford ahead of the five-year contract that pays $25 million annually to Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, which Carr signed last month. In the showdown past year, the Giants had 114 yards on 32 carries while the Lions had just 56 yards on 19 carries.

Beckham Jr. If he's fit, there's no greater game-changer in the National Football League, let alone this game. Agnew caught the ball low by his ankles, almost dropping it, but then he took off and deked out long snapper Zak DeOssie, slipped through another tackle and eluded Brad Wing as the last line of defense to complete the 88-yard return for a touchdown, giving the Lions a 24-10 lead. Through two games. As a team.

The New York offense will now get to see how Beckham works with new free agent signee Brandon Marshall, who was held relatively silent during the team's opening week. You can follow the blog on on Facebook and twitter (@bleedsbigblue).

NY did have opportunities to keep it closer but failed to cash in. He played in seven regular-season games and had four receptions for 63 yards, and three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in the playoff game in Green Bay. OBJ is a transcendent talent, who's mere presence on a football field forces opposing defenses to shift their attention his way. The Lions have lost their last three road openers, with the last two being one possession games. No one deserves this more than you. If the Lions' defense looks anything like it did last week against the Cardinals, expect them to cover that +3 spread easily.

Last season Matthew Stafford led the Lions to eight come from behind victories.

First, guard Brett Jones moved his offense back 10 yards with a holding penalty.

Sunday night's performance against the Cowboys left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Giants offensive unit.

"We did a nice job of getting in the end zone early and our defence did what they do", Stafford said.
