DETROIT (AP) — Davis Webb took a step toward restoring confidence that he can be a capable backup quarterback for the New York Giants.Webb took advantage of his opportunity to play for Eli Manning Womens Jarrad Davis Jersey , throwing a go-ahead touchdown in the second quarter to help the New York Giants beat the Detroit Lions 30-17 Friday night.“Everyone says that wins don’t matter in the preseason, but they leave a much better feeling in the locker room,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said.Webb was 14 of 20 for 140 yards with an 8-yard TD pass to Wayne Gallman Jr., who scored for a second time later in the game. Webb showed poise in the pocket and touch down the field, connecting on a perfectly lofted 40-yard pass to Russell Shepard to set up Aldrick Rosas‘ 55-yard field goal in the second quarter.“I just wanted to hit the reset button on everything that happened last week,” Webb said.Manning, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, was a healthy scratch.Webb, a 2017 third-round pick, played well after performing well last week. He was 9 of 22 for 70 yards, sailing passes over open receivers in the preseason opening loss against Cleveland to raise some concerns about whether he’s ready to be the team’s No. 2 quarterback.“I was very happy to see Davis Webb bounce back that well as a starter,” Shurmur said. “He made significant improvements from last week to this week, and that shows why we have so much confidence in him. I thought he was calmer and he did a very nice job.”The Giants rested rookie running back Saquon Barkley with a strained hamstring and didn’t test receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s surgically repaired ankle.Giants rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta Matthew Stafford Jersey White , a fourth-round pick, scrambled and scored on a 10-yard run in the third quarter to put the Giants ahead 17-3. Gallman took an inside handoff and bounced to the outside on an 11-yard run to put New York up by three TDs early in the fourth.The Lions started Matthew Stafford after sitting him in last week’s game at Oakland and he didn’t have much time to make plays behind a porous offensive line. Stafford was 2 of 5 for 51 yards and was sacked twice and hit once as he threw.Detroit coach Matt Patricia, though, refused to blame the guys up front.“I don’t think we played particularly well at any position,” he said.Jake Rudock replaced Stafford in the second quarter and finished 23 of 30 for 171 yards with a TD. Rudock came back in the fourth, relieving veteran Matt Cassel, who threw an interception.Even though it was just a preseason game, Patricia was clearly not happy with his players, staff and himself.“We got to do a better job and it starts with me,” he said. “We’ve got to get these guys ready to go. We obviously have a lot of work to do.”INJURIESGiants: RB Jalen Simmons left the game in the second half with a concussion. Shepard left the game in the fourth with a finger injury.Lions: LB Steve Longa appeared to hurt his right knee when he tried to tackle Lauletta on his TD run in the third quarter. After being evaluated on the field, Longa walked off the field slowly and went toward the locker room.HE’S BACKLions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah played for the first time this preseason, coming back from an undisclosed injury that kept him out of the beginning of training camp.“I noticed him on a couple plays,” Patricia said. “It was good that he was out there Nick Bellore Jersey White , working hard.”NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no player protests during the national anthem. The Lions, as they did last week, stood on the sideline with their arms locked together. The Giants all stood at attention and many players held their right hand over their heart.PREGAME CHATHall of Fame running back Barry Sanders met Barkley before the game, chatted briefly and posed for some pictures.“He’s put together,” Sanders said.UP NEXTGiants: Face the Jets on the field they share, technically as the visitors on Aug. 24.Lions: Visit Tampa Bay on Aug. 24. ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit coach Matt Patricia apparently made quite an impression on his new defensive lineman.Mike Daniels was at training camp Sunday, a day after the Lions announced that they’d signed him. When asked what made Detroit an attractive destination, the former Green Bay Packer didn’t mince words.“Coach Patricia, flat out,” Daniels said. “He’s just a genius. He really is. He understands the game of football. He knows what it takes. To be able to play for a coach like that, it means everything.”Patricia is entering his second season as Detroit’s coach, and the first one didn’t go very well. The Lions went 6-10 Damon Harrison Jersey White , their worst record since 2012. But prior to that, Patricia had success as a defensive coordinator with New England, and now Detroit has put together the type of defensive front that could be just what its coach needs to improve on his difficult debut season.The 30-year-old Daniels signed with the Lions shortly after being released by the Packers. He was a Pro Bowl alternate after the 2017 season, although he finished last season on injured reserve after a foot injury.“He’s very intense, he loves football,” Patricia said. “He’s just one of those guys that comes to work every day. He’s a blue-collar guy, he’s one of those guys that loves the grind of the game. Another guy that is very smart, when you talk to him about different schemes and different things that he can do.”Patricia pointed out that Daniels has familiarity with the NFC North, having played seven seasons with Green Bay. Now he’s on the Detroit side of that rivalry.“I’ll say one thing: I’m happy to have him on our team,” offensive lineman Kenny Wiggins said. “Don’t have to play him twice this year.”The Lions began upgrading their defensive line in the middle of last season when they traded for Damon Harrison. Da’Shawn Hand emerged as a rookie, finishing with three sacks and two forced fumbles, and Romeo Okwara contributed 7½ sacks.Then Detroit signed free agent Trey Flowers this offseason, and now the Lions have added Daniels.“I’ve always respected the Lions’ defensive front Womens Graham Glasgow Jersey , and now with Coach Patricia being here and seeing the guys that he’s brought over here, they’ve only gotten better,” Daniels said. “Being able to play with those guys is awesome.”The question now is when (and if) Detroit’s key players will all be able to line up together in a game. It’s early, but the defensive line is dealing with health issues. Flowers is on the physically unable to perform list. Harrison and defensive tackle Darius Kilgo were put on the non-football injury list.Before last season, Daniels had been pretty durable. He started all 16 games for the Packers for three straight seasons from 2014-16, then made 14 starts in 2017.“We have a lot of really great players on this team. We are going to look toward the future and hopefully we can get everybody out there to maximize their ability and their performances when we get to that point,” Patricia said. “But right now we’re so far away from that. It’s just trying to get lined up and do the simple things right — not jump offside, make sure we’re lined up properly and we’re executing our fundamentals right.”NOTES: RB Kerryon Johnson was back at practice Sunday. Patricia said he was excused for a personal reason Saturday.
