Steelers take advantage of Giants' miscues for 20-12 victory

As is the case for most preseason games, there were a few surprise efforts that will not go unnoticed this week at Steelers Camp.

"I think just getting out there in general, having a play on (special) teams and then having the sack as I did, it calmed the nerves a little bit", Watt told reporters ( via ESPN ). "I don't have time to hit a [rookie] wall", Watt said after a recent practice.

"Good start for us". In the final 6:39 of the fourth quarter Friday night there was, however, a glimpse of the talent that convinced the New York Giants to select him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft in he hopes that he would become their quarterback of the future.

Engram caught one pass for 11 yards but the focus after his 23 snaps in the 20-12 preseason loss to the Steelers was his blocking, a supposed weakness in college at Ole Miss, where he was not asked to do much in-line blocking. With his team deep in Pittsburgh territory, Smith underthrew Jerrel Adams and suffered the first of his three sacks. The 31-year-old completed five passes on 10 attempts, good for just 31 yards.

This time, linebacker Arthur Moats picked off Geno Smith's pass intended for receiver Travis Rudolph. Dobbs finished the night going 8-for-15 for 100 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He would finish the four-year span with a total of 9852 yards, throwing 83 touchdown passes with only 34 interceptions.

The third-round pick's practice reps have been limited mostly to a seven-on-seven drill called "opportunity", which is created to give younger players a chance to show what they've got.

The Democratic governor said he had spoken to President Donald Trump , a Republican, and twice urged him to bring people together. A auto plowed into a crowd that was peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally, killing one person and injuring 19 .

Nugent gave the Giants the lead with his 45-yard field goal in the third quarer, but not for long thanks to the Steelers converting on another Giants turnover. If Johnson wants to earn the backup job, he will have to learn how to go through his progressions and find the open man, even when it is not his intended receiver. This set up Chris Boswell's 37-yard field goal that pushed the Steelers ahead for good, 13-12. It wasn't a glowing game for the offensive line, not only for the running attack but also for the seven sacks allowed. "There's some bad and there's some ugly", head coach Ben McAdoo said.

JuJu Smith-Schuster left the game in the first quarter with a concussion. Giants veteran S Duke Ihenacho pulled a hamstring in the second quarter and did not return.

This was especially true at the quarterback position, as Giants starter Eli Manning did not play a single snap in the game.

QUIET AND STEADY NIGHTS: Brandon Marshall made his Giants' debut and it was inconspicuous. NY also rested DE Jason Pierre-Paul and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

The worst thing anyone can do is overplay the importance of the first preseason game of the season. "I worked hard and I'm just happy the process is nearly over".
