Brian Daboll’s Giants stun Titans with late 2-point conversion

·1 min read

Brian Daboll was brought into the change the culture with the New York Giants. Part of that must mean playing for the win and not settling for a tie and seeing what happens in overtime.

The Giants used a late 2-point conversion to topple Tennessee, 21-20, in their season opener on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.

Big Blue was trailing 13-0 at the half before some big plays brought it into a  tie.

The Titans went ahead 20-13 on a third-quarter TD pass by Ryan Tannehill to set the stage for Daboll’s fourth-quarter gamble.

Daniel Jones led a 12-play, 73-yard drive over 4:21 that concluded with a TD pass to Chris Myrick.

That’s when Daboll, who came over from Buffalo where he was offensive coordinator, pushed all his chips to the middle.

And to show how much of a gambler he is, Daboll called a running play for the win.

Saquon Barkley barreled into the end zone and the Daboll era was 1-0.
