"You look around and you see (Giants quarterback) Eli Manning, you see (Steelers quarterback) Ben (Roethlisberger) all dressed up and you see all the guys". Jason Pierre-Paul and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are all healthy, but didn't play. Backup center Brett Jones fired an errantly low snap as the offense was out of sync again, settling for another field goal - this time a 30-yarder by Mike Nugent.

The third-year safety made an impact immediately, stuffing Steelers running back Fitzgerald Toussaint for a loss on the first play of the game. Whether he will be cleared to play in the regular season remains to be seen.

He finished with three solo tackles, five total tackles, two sacks, three quarterback hits and a pass defensed.

"I definitely felt I was physical and got in there when need be".

"I've got a long way to go but this was a good starting point for myself, but I know I have to continue to get better", Webb said. But perhaps what has his coaches and teammates most excited is his explosive speed and maneuverability on the field. "We need to clean it up and get better".

Of course, one preseason game does not a career make. "I don't have time to hit a [rookie] wall", Watt said after a recent practice.

Hilton, meanwhile, has been a pleasant surprise for a team searching high and low for help in the defensive backfield. Smith started and played eight snaps compared to just one snap for Jacob Huesman, who missed his man on a lead-block. "He likes to play football, he's always around the ball, he has a nose for the ball, and he's an animal when it comes to that". "I don't want him to get disillusioned".

Still, McAdoo talked Wednesday about the importance of coming out and setting a tone in the running game. We didn't deem it was appropriate because of lack of prep to play in this game.

Dobbs threw a pair of interceptions early that the Giants turned into two field goals. Aldrick's were from distances of 27 and 52 yards.

After his rocky start, however, Dobbs settled in and showed flashes of his potential. Collins finished with five tackles despite only playing the first quarter.

"Me and coach Spags (defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo) had a little talk. I'm just happy the process is nearly over". Dobbs didn't impress in the game, throwing two interceptions. So there wasn't much separation in the kicking competition. I really enjoy it. Dobbs has completed six of his 11 pass attempts for 93 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Three different Giants each had a sack. So it's definitely something that we're going to build off of.

"Make sure you throw the ball to our color", Dobbs said, referring to his pregame speech from the veteran quarterback.

Hamilton has two catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. First is a video that shows his throw locations.

Johnson twice fired an incompletion in the end zone to wide receiver Roger Lewis, who started opposite Brandon Marshall and, like Rudolph, is competing for a job within a deep receiver room. How would top draft choices like T.J.
