2 former LSU Tigers score for NY Giants in win over Falcons
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - First-round draft pick Odell Beckham Jr. made his NFL debut a memorable one, catching a go-ahead 15-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning with 10:02 left to lead the New York Giants to a 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Fellow rookie Andre Williams scored on a 3-yard run to ignite the second-half rally that saw the Giants (3-2) come from 10-points down to win their third straight game.
Manning threw two touchdowns and Josh Brown added two late field goals.
Ryan threw for 316 yards and a touchdown playing behind a banged-up offense line that held up until the very end. Atlanta (2-3) dropped its second straight.
Former LSU Tiger Ruben Randle also had a touchdown catch for the Giants.
