Eli Manning has no problem with Odell Beckham pulling up on pass. He says in preseason "no point in taking hits" under circumstances like this.

Eli Manning: "We have to play better. It is in no way good enough." Giants first-team offense has 4 first downs and 88 yards in 4 quarters of action.

Giants 21, Jets 20 (FINAL): A terrific performance by the starting defense was ruined by sloppy play from the Jets' QBs. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg combined for three turnovers. Geno Smith played, too. He had no turnovers, but he provided no spark. Basically, nothing was settled with regard to the No. 2 and No. 3 quarterback jobs. The biggest concern is LB David Harris, who left with a shoulder injury.

Giants LB Jonathan Casillas has a cracked rib, per source. Should be able to play through it though. Casillas looked really good this summer.

There's more than a month to go in the regular season and the Mets have already broken their club record for home runs at Citi Field. Kelly Johnson hit the team's 86th, a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning against the Phillies. The previous mark of 85 was set last season.

Victor Cruz makes his first catch in 685 days on the first play of the second half. It was Cruz's 27th snap of the game.

Jets LB David Harris (shoulder) is out for the remainder of the game. He's the QB of the defense. Can't afford to lose him.

Jets 7, Giants 0 (HALFTIME): The Jets can feel good about their defense, which has dominated in every aspect. Big plays by Darrelle Revis, Mo Wilkerson and Calvin Pryor. The improved team speed is evident. The starting offense, sans Brandon Marshall, managed one score in five series. Ryan Fitzpatrick was rusty, missing open receivers. He had one good throw, a 22-yard TD to Eric Decker. Matt Forte has 12 touches, no big plays in his Jets debut.

Asdrubal Cabrera is valued at 0.9 Wins Above Replacement, but his recent production has been irreplaceable. Cabrera's third homer in two games gave the Mets a third-inning lead over the Phillies. The Mets are 57-48 when Cabrera starts this season, 8-15 when he doesn't. Cabrera's 16 home runs are his most in a season since he hit that many with the 2012 Indians.
