NFL Preseason Preview - NY Giants (2-0) at Indianapolis (0-1)



By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) - It hasn't been pretty but the New York Giants will take a perfect 2-0 preseason record into Indianapolis for a meeting with the Colts on Saturday.

The Giants opened the 2014 NFL preseason with a Hall of Fame Game win over Buffalo before edging the Pittsburgh Steelers, 20-16, on Curtis Painter's 3- yard touchdown pass to Corey Washington late in the fourth quarter last Saturday.

Painter, who was once Peyton Manning's backup with the Colts, completed all seven of his passes for 68 yards and was efficient, using over seven minutes of the clock with a 12-play, 80-yard drive that culminated in Washington's short touchdown reception.

The Giants' defense then stood tall in the final moments, forcing a fumble at their own 27-yard line to seal the win.

Rashad Jennings led New York on the ground with 85 yards -- including a 73- yard TD run -- on five carries. Eli Manning started the game, but misfired on his only two passing attempts.

The Colts, meanwhile, dropped their preseason opener to the New York Jets, 13-10, last week when Andrew Furney kicked what turned out to be a game- winning 51-yard field goal with 1:18 remaining.

Star signal caller Andrew Luck played one series, going 4-of-5 for 53 yards. T.Y. Hilton hauled in three of those completions for 38 yards, while offseason acquisition Hakeem Nicks, a former Giant, brought in the other one for 15 yards for the Colts, who won the AFC South with an 11-5 mark a year ago.

Coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged just 2.9 yards per carry and totaled 458 yards, former first-round pick Trent Richardson ran the ball five times for 13 yards.

Veteran backup QB Matt Hasselbeck completed 10-of-15 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown for Indy, while Dan Herron recorded 26 yards rushing on seven carries and had six receptions for 36 yards and a score in defeat.

The Giants and Colts have met 13 times previously in the preseason with Indianapolis holding the advantage 8-5.
