New York Giants leading tackler Blake Martinez is going to miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his left leg. Coach Joe Judge confirmed the injury happened without contact as the inside linebacker chased running back Cordarrelle Patterson on an short pass. Martinez is the second Giants captain lost to an injury this season.
It wasn’t pretty for much of the afternoon, but Matt Ryan proved he still has that magic touch. The Falcons began their 17-14 win at the New York Giants with four consecutive punts, and vintage Matty Ice seemed like a thing of the past. “Yeah, I thought it was a grind most of the day and I think it’s a great learning lesson for a lot of our young players that sometimes in this league that’s the way it is, and you’ve got to find a way to get the job done,” Ryan said.
Saquon Barkley poured out his heart discussing the New York Giants' second straight 0-3 start and his feelings about the team. For the record, Barkley believes this team is special, despite the winless mark. Quarterback Daniel Jones is playing his best ball since being drafted in 2019.
