Beckham's career day, late 66-yard TD lead Giants

"When he scores like that, we can't let them in.' So you kind of go out there with a little swag on the field". Smith wasn't shadowing Giants' top receiver Odell Beckham, though he did match up with him on a few occasions. He's put me there for the ups and the downs and to learn and grow from them.

After being down 10-0, the Giants kept pounding away and eventually took the lead.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman (18) catches a pass between New York Giants' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (41) and Landon Collins (21) during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016, in East.

The Ravens tried to change their fortune by firing offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. While the Ravens were able to effectively flip field position, penalties stalled a couple promising drives in the first half. Baltimore came into the game without receiver Steve Smith Sr. Baltimore's defense held the Giants to just 38 yards rushing for the game and intercepted Manning twice (Tavon Young and Will Davis), but were hurt by the big play. NY is due for a big game and against the Ravens at home it could be in this one. The passing game was extremely effective against Baltimore, and hopefully, it can grow into the offense many believed the Giants would have before the season.

But the star wideout, whose struggles have been at the center of the Giants' disappointing start, responded in a huge way in the third quarter. On the ensuing drive, the Ravens were unable to earn a first down and had to settle for another field goal.

Beckham embarrassed the National Football League after his first brush up with Josh Norman during last year's matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

After an interception slipped through Shareece Wright's grasp, Eric Weddle made another sure tackle short of the sticks to force a punt. The Ravens offense is not almost as scary, and the defense should return to form this week. He is so critical to the success of this offense that a rift between Beckham and the team is something the Giants can not afford to let happen. If they can't get healthier, and fast, the Ravens could find themselves in deep trouble again. That's where we should have extended the lead, real simple.

With Eli Manning as their quarterback, all the Giants have to do is get into the playoffs and then they know anything is possible.

The Ravens are allowing just 14.6 first downs per game, forcing teams to be efficient in their approach. The final Beckham highlight of the day came in the form of a go-ahead touchdown catch and run late in the fourth quarter. A roughing the passer penalty gave the Ravens life after an incompletion on fourth down. He did, Flacco threw a career high 27 touchdowns while completing 62% of his passes to the tune of a passer rating of 91.

The Ravens have lost another heartbreaker. The matchup with the Jets will also be Baltimore's last game before the bye.
