Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Sean Lee wants more time to decide if this is the best chance the Dallas Cowboys have to be defined by their defense in the linebacker's eight years with the club.

Giant concern: Protecting Manning vs. Watt, Texans

The Giants (0-2) replaced Halapio, who started six games at right guard in 2017, with 11-year veteran John Greco. Greco spent his first three seasons with the then-St. Louis Rams before playing six years with the Cleveland Browns prior to signing with the Giants last November.
