ANTWAAN RANDLE EL [UP]

Offense’s forgotten man had seven catches for 98 yards

ELI MANNING [UP]


Super-efficient with only nine incompletions to go with 256 yards and a TD

ALBERT HAYNESWORTH [SIDEWAYS]

He was active in the trenches, but the defense couldn’t slow the Giants

ROOKIE OF YEAR TALK [DOWN]

Brian Orakpo’s name not often called; he finished with two tackles and a big early whiff

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Osi Umenyiora

The Giants pass rusher, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, returned with instant impact. He knocked the ball out of Jason Campbell’s hand and recovered it, taking it 37 yards for the score that gave New York a 17-0 lead.
