Odell Beckham Jr to play against Lions on MNF

Kickoff for tonight's game is at 8:30 p.m. with the game being televised on ESPN.

The biggest missed opportunity for the Giants came in the fourth quarter.

On fourth-and-10 with 4:34 to play, Eli Manning threw an incomplete pass to Odell Beckham Jr., handing the ball back to Matthew Stafford to bleed the clock with a two-possession lead. Arizona failed to create much pressure on Stafford last week and were picked apart as a result. Quarterback salaries are steadily skyrocketing across the board, but for now, the market's poster boy is coming to face the Giants' defense. After a 67-yard reception by Tate, cornerback Leon Hall struck out Zach Zenner causing a fumble that was recovered by defensive end Olivier Vernon in the final zone. The Lions are now seeking their first 2-and-0 start since winning their first five games in 2011. The Lions defeated the Saints 28-13.

Key stat: Ziggy Ansah recorded three sacks Monday night, which eclipsed his entire total (2.0) from an injury-plagued 2016 season.

The Giants finished with 270 yards against the Lions after they managed just 233 yards in their 19-3 loss to the Cowboys in Week 1. The duo seemed to pressure Matthew Stafford on almost every play. It allowed the Lions to get the ball at the Giants 45 after the kickoff went out of bounds and Stafford drove them for a second score.

Last weekend, Haden was taken advantage of by Coleman on more than one occasion with the receiver's flashy speed. However, given Bradford's past injury history - on the left knee specifically, too - it's hard not to worry.

Both teams have difficulty running the ball. They created four takeaways against the Cardinals and limited them to just 2.5 yards per carry and 5.6 yards per passing attempt. These are all things the Lions have preached to him and he's been able to improve on under head coach Jim Caldwell, offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter and quarterbacks coach Brian Callahan and continually showed up against the Giants.

The top receiver of each team is dealing with an injury.

After trailing by 17-7 at the half, the Giants began the third quarter with more bumbling play, especially by the offensive line. History tells us that teams to lose their first two games have a 12 percent chance of reaching the playoffs.

Agnew then helped clinch the game for Detroit with his big return with 12:56 left, faking out NY punter Brad Wing on his way to the end zone. NY was just 4-of-12 on third down in the contest. Having him fully healthy will help, but this Giants offense may already be lost beyond even his heroics. In Week 1 they looked bad against the Cowboys. The Giants' charismatic receiver has not seen any action since injuring his left ankle on August 21 in a preseason game.
