Giants vs. Broncos: Highlights, game tracker and more

Sometimes things just don't add up as expected when other players step up.

The New York Giants (1-5) pulled off one of the season's biggest upsets by dominating the Denver Broncos in every phase from start to finish Sunday night. We are showing up. This represented the first time that McAdoo had not called the plays in a regular season game since joining the Giants as Tom Coughlin's offensive coordinator in 2014. The defense's two interceptions and a Demaryius Thomas fumble that was recovered by Eli Apple helped.

Let's face it: Sullivan didn't have a lot to work with.

Center Weston Richburg (concussion), running back Paul Perkins (ribs) and receiver Sterling Shepard (ankle) were also missing on offense. The entire receiver corps in uniform for the Giants had a combined total of 19 career receptions and three TDs. His night nearly ended early after he landed on his surgically repaired left shoulder trying to do what quarterbacks do on tough nights - make a tackle on an interception that was returned for a touchdown.

It doesn't seem like the Broncos can be much worse than they were in this game.

The talk before the game was how the Giants' secondary would fare without DRC, who was suspended by McAdoo for disciplinary reasons.

The biggest came when Siemian, who earlier threw into triple and even quadruple coverage while overlooking open targets, threw a pick-six to cornerback Janoris Jenkins.

Trevor Siemian has led Denver to a 3-2 record while completing 61.4 percent of his throws with eight touchdown passes and six interceptions.

After five weeks and five games of abject failure, the Giants summoned within them a bludgeoning end-to-end performance that defied any and all explanation.

Jenkins was the standout of the group all night. He was replaced by Brock Osweiler but returned to start the second half. "I mean, we didn't score in the red zone, I turned it over, and it's tough to win that way". This could be a unsafe game if the offensive line continues to struggle. This time it worked.

"We just went out there and battled and played for each other, " Pugh told NBC after the game. And the Giants' 28th-ranked run defense held the Broncos to just 46 yards on the ground. "Hats off to the offensive line. That's a hell of a job on them to secure the blocks and spring me". "That was his big message and we came out and played like it".

The Broncos signed kicker Brandon McManus to a three-year extension in September, making him the fourth-highest-paid kicker in the National Football League with a deal worth $11.2 million and $6 million guaranteed. Brandon McManus was wide right on a 35-yard field goal attempt to keep the Broncos off the board. He rushed 21 times for 117 yards, including four runs of at least 10 yards, not to mention a 47-yarder in the second quarter.
