    The New York Giants trip to Green Bay to face the Packers is dripping with story lines. Authentic Dwight Gooden Jersey .Will Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham keep his poise and bounce back from the worst game of his career? In Monday nights loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Beckham was limited to three receptions for a career-low 23 yards. After scoring 25 touchdowns in the first 27 games of his career, Beckham hasnt found the end zone in four games this year.I think hell respond well. I think hell be excited to get out there and play again, Giants coach Ben McAdoo said. I think a short week is a great week for a lot of reasons, and coming off of a tough loss at Minnesota, I think hell be excited to get back on the field.Beckham has a chance to get back on track against the Packers. After being frustrated by Washingtons Josh Norman and Minnesotas Xavier Rhodes, Beckham will attack a Packers pass defense that ranks 29th in yards allowed. That unit has had trouble coping with the loss of cornerback Sam Shields, who figures to miss his third consecutive game with a concussion. Last years first-round pick, Damarious Randall, has struggled to adapt to life as the teams top cornerback, with Minnesotas Stefon Diggs and Detroits Marvin Jones having big days mainly at his expense the past two games.I know weve been struggling -- me in particular has been struggling, Randall said. The great thing about that, Im not struggling because of the receivers. Im struggling because of myself. I know Im going to bounce back.While Randall tries to bounce back, McAdoo is coming back to Green Bay, where he worked as tight ends coach from 2006-11 and quarterbacks coach in 2012 and 2013.If he was feeling nostalgic, he wasnt showing it.I havent given it much thought, McAdoo said. Its a quick week for us this week, playing on Monday night, fast turnaround. Im sure Ill have some thoughts and emotions when I walk through the tunnel for the first time.Few coaches know the inner workings of the Packers offense and the man who runs the show, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, better than McAdoo.However, neither McAdoo nor Rodgers thought that knowledge would make much of a difference on Sunday.Theyre running a similar offense to us, so that kind of goes both ways, Rodgers said. They obviously have an idea of what were trying to do and vice-versa. I wouldnt say theres a major advantage there. The people that know me the best, thankfully, are still on this staff. Ive worked with Mike (McCarthy, the head coach) for 11 years now and Tom (Clements, the associate head coach) directly for six years. As long as we can hold onto those guys, I feel a little bit better about not all the secrets getting out there.As for Rodgers, does one of the games top quarterbacks have a weakness that can be exploited?No, McAdoo said.A quarterbacking matchup between Rodgers and Eli Manning is about as good as it gets. Rodgers is a two-time MVP. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champion. Rodgers, coming off a four-touchdown first-half performance vs. Detroit, owns the highest career passer rating in NFL history. Manning is two touchdowns away from becoming the eighth player in NFL history with 300 touchdown passes and is one win from No. 100.McAdoo saw a common tie between the two.I think the competitive drive, the consistency in preparation, being able to articulate whats happening on the field and the ability they have to see the entire field is always something thats unbelievable to me, and just how slow the game is for them.Manning is 2/3 in regular-season games against the Packers -- 1-2 vs. Rodgers -- but is 2-0 in the playoffs. The Giants won 23-20 in overtime to capture the NFC Championship in 2007 and 37-20 in the divisional playoffs in 2011. Both games were at Lambeau Field. The first was played with a kickoff temperature of minus-1; the second ruined the defending Super Bowl-champion Packers 15-1 regular season.I obviously have some good memories in playoff games there, Manning said, but obviously trying to make some new memories and bring some good memories to some of the players who werent part of those teams. Wholesale Mets Jerseys Authentic . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. Cheap New York Mets Gear . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. ;. After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. NORMAN, Okla. -- A year ago, new Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley was still installing his Air Raid system while trying to figure out who would be his quarterback.By the end of the season, he had won the Broyles Award for the nations top assistant coach, quarterback Baker Mayfield had finished fourth in the Heisman balloting and the Sooners had qualified for the College Football Playoff.We played better as we went on, Riley said. Part of that, it was Year 1, and it was just a progression of it. We knew what our identity was the entire way, we just werent great at it, yet. Kind of around midseason, we started playing better and got some confidence, and we were able to take it from there.Now a much wealthier man after a significant raise, the 32-year-old Riley has much of the talent from last years squad back, including Mayfield and fellow Heisman candidate Samaje Perine at running back for the third-ranked Sooners.Not only is our team more equipped and totally now understands our offense -- whats required and all the little nuances of it, but now also, coach Riley knows what he has to work with, where a year ago, hes still piecing all that together, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. I just feel like overall, theres a lot more confidence and its a lot more fluid.Oklahoma will need all the offense it can get. The Sooners open with No. 15 Houston on Sept. 3 at Reliant Stadium, then host No. 6 Ohio State two weeks later. There will be no time for a slow start like the offense had last year.Theres certainly an expectation we have to be play better, Riley said. I think our guys have a strong understanding if we dont, were going to be in trouble. We play some real good teams in the beginning. We have to be very good, very early.Stoops has no doubt that Riley will have the team ready. Overall, the Sooners ranked fourth in school history in points per game (43.5), third in yards per game (530.2) and third in yards per play (6.80) last season. The Sooners posted huge numbers in two of their most critical games last year,, victories over Baylor and Oklahoma State. Authentic Michael Conforto Jersey. incoln is really organized and very detailed and/or sure of what he wants to do, Stoops said. Therefore, the things we put on the field have been well rehearsed. Hes got a great feel for play-calling and mixing the run and the pass. Hes a great communicator with the coaches and the players.With Riley calling the shots, Mayfields 2015 season was one of the best at Oklahoma. He passed for 3,700 yards and 36 touchdowns, and his completion percentage was second in school history for a single season.Mayfield said Rileys value goes beyond the game plan.Hes not a guy thats going to yell at you, but at the same time, he can kind of crack the whip when he needs to, Mayfield said. I respect him a lot because he knows when to flip the switch and be serious, but at the same time, hes a guy you can just talk to and I very much enjoy that, to be able to go into the meeting room and when were not talking about football, to just be able to relax.Rileys biggest challenge will be finding ways to fill the void left by receiver Sterling Shepard, who has moved on to the NFL. Dede Westbrook, last years No. 2 receiver, had 46 catches for 743 yards last season. Mark Andrews, an All-Big 12 selection last season, had seven touchdown grabs. Geno Lewis, a transfer from Penn State, should fit in immediately.Stoops said balance is what Rileys offense is all about. The hope is more equal distribution of touches makes the offense even more difficult to defend.I think well be further along than that this year, where well have more guys contribute, Stoops said. Hopefully, in some of those games, 10 guys have receptions, multiple guys have several receptions. Thats what this offense is designed to do. I think well be more that way this year.---Freelance writer Murray Evans in Norman, Oklahoma, contributed to this report.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: (at)CliffBruntAP . Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 ' ' '
