    loss New York Giants football is finally back , and after one preseason game fans are already talking each other off of the ledge. Make no mistake, the Giants have issues like concerns over the passing game — both on offensive and defense — or Davis Webb’s “amped up” erratic play. However, we can’t allow ourselves to overlook the single biggest win to come out of the Giants’ 20-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns, the for "Kudos" that Ed forgot in his post game "Kudos and Wet Willie's":They’re still healthy. Derrius GuiceGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsGiants fans got a stark reminder of that fact when Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice was diagnosed with a torn ACL on Friday. Guice suffered the injury when he was tackled awkwardly finishing a nice run against the New England Patriots. The Giants aren't completely healthy, they lost rookie cornerback Sam Beal to a shoulder injury almost as soon as he became a Giant, and have suffered a spate of hamstring injuries in the secondary. Hamstrings are frustrating injuries to have -- you can't do much until they're healthy, and even if you feel recovered , you might not yet be healthy. But compared to Guice and twelve (as of this writing) other season ending knee injuries, Thompson's hamstring is far from a worst case scenario. The first week of preseason football brought the injury bug to several teams around the league. Tom Brady is dealing with back soreness while the Indianapolis Colts lost exciting rookie receiver Deon Cain for the season. Injury provides opportunities for other players, and perhaps Guice's injury could be an opportunity for former Giants running back Orleans Darkwa. But for the Giants, amd Giants fans, Guice's injury should serve as a reminder that while they have issues, they also have largely healthy players (and players who will return from injury) to coach up on those issues. The 2-7 New York Giants look to actually start a winning streak Sunday at MetLife Stadium when they host the 3-6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Giants have not won back-to-back games since Weeks 14 and 15 of the 2016 season, when they defeated the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions in successive games.To do that , the Giants are going to have to do something they have yet to do this season — win at game at MetLife Stadium. The Giants are 0-4 in their home building Here are some of the other numbers to know heading into Sunday’s game.350 — With three touchdown passes in Week 11, Eli Manning (350) became the eighth player to reach 350 in NFL history. Manning is tied with Ben Roethlisberger for seventh-most touchdown passes of all time. 142 — Odell Beckham Jr. (858) needs 142 yards receiving to reach 1,000 yards receiving for the 4th time in his career. 62 — Through Week 11, Saquon Barkley ranks second among running backs in the NFL with 62 receptions.8 — The number of sacks former Giant Jason Pierre-Paul, now with the Bucs, has this season.753 —Passing yards (54,247) needed by Manning to reach 55 ,000 for his career. 30.7 — What Corey Coleman averaged in three kickoff returns Monday night, the first time he has been used in that role during his NFL career.10 — The number of sacks the Giants have as a team. The Giants are also last in the league in Adjusted Sack Rate, per Football Outsiders, at 2.9 percent. 4.6 — That’s the percentage of time the Giants get a sack on what are considered “blitz downs,” per SB Nation’s advanced statistics. That is last in the league.-18.8 — That is the percentage of running plays on which the Giants fail to meet the “expected success rate” of the play. That is 31st in the league. Thanks to the brilliance of Saquon Barkley, the Giants are actually No. 1 in the league in marginal explosiveness of running plays. Barkley is tied for third in the league with 7 running plays of 20 yards or more. Only James Connor of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Matt Breida of the San Francisco 49ers (8) have more.
