     and their season have spiraled out of control at 1-7 New York Giants Hoodie , coach Pat Shurmur said Sunday after a 20-13 loss to the Washington Redskins. The Giants traded defensive starters Eli Apple and Damon Harrison for draft choices last week. There has been lots of speculation that veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins could be moved before Tuesday.What else might happen?Eli ManningThe beleaguered 15-year veteran quarterback has a no-trade clause and said Sunday he’s not waiving it.“I want to stay here,” he said simply.Will he stay with the Giants as the starter once the Giants return from their bye week?“I don’t want to go there, I’m not going to tease that,” Shurmur said on Sunday. “I just want to look at everything and see what we have to do moving forward.”Odell Beckham Jr.Before sunday’s game there were reports that the Giants were receiving offers for the superstar wide receiver, even with Beckham being in the first year of a five-year, $90 million contract.After hauling in 8 receptions for 136 yards on Sunday, Beckham was asked if New York was where he wanted to be.“This is where I’m at,” was his response.“I don’t think I am going anywhere. All I want to do is be the very best that I can be when I’m on the field, off the field as well. It’s really hard to think about that, but it is what it is.”Landon CollinsThe Giants have to decide whether the 24-year-old Collins is a building block player worthy of an expensive long-term contract Youth Customized New York Giants Jerseys , or whether his best value is as a trade chip who could bring back multiple draft picks that could be used in a rebuilding effort.Collins said “we have to see when we get there” when asked about re-signing with the Giants in the offseason.“I’m just playing it day-by-day. I love the Giants, they love me. You never know, it’s a business, so whatever happens, happens.”Olivier Vernon Playing in his third game since returning from a high ankle sprain, Vernon had three quarterback hits and a fumble recovery, once again showing that he’s an impact player. Will he be a Giant when they face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10?“I’m just going in and working it,” Vernon said. “I just go into the building and work. That’s all I worry about.”Janoris JenkinsThe veteran cornerback is the last of the three corners suspended in 2017 (Apple, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie being the others) still with the Giants. Several teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers , Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, are believed to have inquired about Jenkins. He still seems the most likely player on the Giants’ roster to be dealt by the deadline. In a short week and in the rain, the New York Giants played host to bitter NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. With their season hanging in the balance — or at the very least their ability to be competitive in the division — the Giants just couldn’t match up in any phase of the game. New York is now 1-5 on the season. Things started poorly for the Giants offense, with Eli Manning picked off by Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill on his second throw of the game. That led to a Carson Wentz touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery. The Giants then found themselves down 14-3 by the end of the first quarter, with the Eagles’ second score coming via a 1-yard run by Corey Clement on a drive born of a short Riley Dixon punt.With an early deficit to overcome, the Giants reverted to the mean, with Manning throwing short passes at or behind the line of scrimmage and punts being the most frequent end to their offensive drives. Manning was often under pressure, but the conservative offensive approach the Giants took in response didn’t yield many positive results. Most of Manning’s deep deep attempts weren’t on target either.The Giants converted only four of their 14 third downs (their first since Week 4) and reached the red zone three times. Twice in the first half, Saquon Barkley tallied huge gains to get them into scoring position, but both appearances resulted in Aldrick Rosas field goals and not much-needed touchdowns. Once Wentz connected with tight end Zach Ertz for a 10-yard touchdown near the end of the first half New York Giants Womens T-Shirt , the Giants’ fate was seemingly sealed. That was followed by a Jake Elliot field goal that put the Giants down 24-6 at halftime. Jeffery had another touchdown grab in the second half. While Barkley’s third big play of the night was a 50-yard scoring run in the third quarter, the Eagles already had 31 points to their name. They added three more in the form of an Elliott field goal, while the Giants fell silent. There was to be no big comeback to make the game competitive at the end as there was against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5.Manning completed 24 of his 43 pass attempts for 281 yards, zero scores and one interceptions. He was also sacked four times and hit 13 times. Barkley surpassed the 100-yards from scrimmage mark for the sixth consecutive week by rushing 13 times for 130 yards and a score and catching nine passes for 99 yards. He had the best plays of the game for New York’s offense, the first, a 46-yard run in the first quarter:And the second, for a catch-and-run for 55 yards, in the second quarter:His third was a 50-yard third quarter touchdown run to bring the game to 31-13 in favor of the Eagles:Beckham had six catches on 10 targets for 44 yards. He also muffed a punt return in the second quarter that he managed to recover and walked to the locker room prior to halftime despite the Giants offense still being on the field.Defensively, the Giants appeared to give up in the second half. In total, they allowed 379 yards to the Eagles offense New York Giants Hats , with Wentz completing 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 278 yards and three scores. Pressure wasn’t an issue; Wentz was hit five times but only sacked once.Moments that matteredFIRST DRIVE TURNOVER: A tipped pass intended for tight end Scott Simonson on Eli Manning’s second throw of the game was intercepted by Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill. Three plays later, the Eagles reached the red zone, with Carson Wentz connecting with Alshon Jeffery for a touchdown. Manning was also lucky not to lose a fumble on a sack later in the first quarter; Nate Solder recovered the ball at New York’s one-yard line.BIG GAINS FOR BARKLEY: The Giants’ best plays on offense came via Barkley. His 46-yard run and his 55-yard after-catch master class alone put him over the 100-all-purpose-yardage mark for the sixth straight week and he added another 50-yard rushing touchdown. He is the second rookie in NFL history to earn 100 or more yards in his first six career games and ended the night with a combined 229 yards rushing and receiving.GAME-BREAKING PLAY: Late in the second quarter, Eagles receiver Nelson Agholor broke away from coverage for a 58-yard gain. That set up a 10-yard touchdown to tight end Zach Ertz, which extended their lead too far for the Giants to catch up.QUIET NIGHT FOR ODELL: Beckham was held to just six catches on his 10 targets for 44 yards, his longest gain totaling 12 yards.MANNING UNDER PRESSURE: Manning was under pressure throughout the contest, taking four sacks and 13 total hits.Injury updatesLinebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong was ruled out with a concussion. He was injured covering the kickoff to open the second half.Receiver Cody Latimer was ruled out with a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter.What’s next?The Giants travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons for Week 7’s Monday Night Football matchup. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET.
