Daniel Jones named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after Giants debut

According to Next Gen Stats, as Mike Garafolo of NFL Network mentioned Monday on Twitter, Engram's sprint touched 20.84 miles mph - the fastest speed by a ball-carrying tight end on the early season - coming second to only Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis, who hit 21.44 mph during a 53-yard touchdown previous year.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley left Sunday's game with an apparent right ankle injury. More importantly, he remained poised after taking some vicious hits, and he brought an energy and vigor to the offense which had been sorely missing.

Barkley played at Penn State for three seasons, earning two Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year awards, before declaring early for the National Football League draft in 2018. It looks like that is going to continue to be the case.

Washington is set to play at the Giants on Sunday. The Browns defeated the Redskins 30-10.

Barkley, who was averaging 7.8 yards per carry in his first two games this year, is someone who could have given the Vikings a lot of problems. Over the previous two weeks, they converted just 5 of 23.

The agency has awarded the Orion Production and Operations Contract (OPOC) to Lockheed Martin of Littleton, Colorado. The company said the first ship would be ready to "carry the first woman and the next man to the moon in 2024".

Back in April, the Giants' drafting of Jones was universally questioned.

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain.

Barkley sustained the injury in the first half against the Bucs in the Giants' Week 3 matchup.

Other struggling teams - most notably the New York Giants and Daniel Jones - have gone to their young quarterbacks. Manning and Jones seemed to get along just fine in celebrating the win, which much have been cool for the rookie, since he has been fan of the two-time Super Bowl champ for quite some time now.

Barkley is off to a solid start so far this season.
