The Giants lost a wide receiver on their first offensive possession on Sunday, but it didn’t stop them from grabbing a lead against the Eagles.
Quarterback Daniel Jones capped an 85-yard drive with a 34-yard touchdown run to give the Giants a 7-0 lead at home. Jones was also 2-of-3 for 26 yards on the drive and Wayne Gallman carried three times for 25 yards.
Jones’ first completion was a 22-yarder to wide receiver Darius Slayton and Slayton got up favoring his left shoulder. He went to the sideline and then returned to the locker room for further evaluation.
UPDATE 1:34 p.m. ET: Slayton returned later in the first quarter.
