EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Swell Cyber Monday Sale .J. -- Defense wins championships, and right now the New York Giants are convincing many that they might be the NFLs best.Forget that they are ranked in the middle of the league. In the past two games, Steve Spagnuolos group has limited division leaders Dallas and Detroit to a total of 13 points, and Sundays 17-6 win over the Lions on Sunday came in a game where top cornerback Janoris Jenkins left early in the second quarter with a back injury.Add in another Odell Beckham Jr. one-hand touchdown catch to delight replay fanatics and the Giants have inched closer to their first playoff berth since 2011, and maybe more, with a win that snapped the NFC North-leading Lions five-game winning streak.This is really exciting, I dont even know the word to use, linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. Its starting to be a beautiful thing. Thirteen points the last two weeks, we like where were at now.The win was the eighth in nine games for the Giants (10-4) and it gave them their best record through 14 games since 2008, when they opened 11-3.The formula was the one the team has followed in Ben McAdoos first season: Just enough offense and a tough stingy, pass-rushing defense that has now come up with big back-to-back efforts against two division leaders in Dallas (11-2) and Detroit (9-5), giving up 13 total points.Eli Manning (20 of 28 for 201 yards) threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard on a 75-yard opening drive and then iced the game with a 4-yard TD pass that Beckham caught with his left hand and then pranced into the end zone for a 11-point lead with 5:20 to play.Norm, veteran receiver Victor Cruz said of Beckhams one-hander, which still paled in comparison to the fully extended TD catch against Dallas in his rookie year. The norm. I wasnt even surprised.Beckham said catches like that just kind of happens for him.You practice it and practice it, he said. Thats why you practice right hand layups and left hand layups. Its just kind of, I dont know.Beckham, who had six catches for 64 yards, almost wasnt done. He reversed field about three times on a 63-yard punt return that brought the remaining fans to their seats less than a minute later. The electrifying return was nullified by an illegal block, but was simply a thrill to watch.The Lions, who had rallied in the fourth quarter to win eight of their nine games, never came close to a comeback in this one as the Giants made them play on a long field all day.Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford didnt show any major issues playing with an injured middle finger on his throwing hand. He finished 24 of 39 for 274 yards and an interception , finding Golden Tate eight times for 122 yards.Theyre a good team, Stafford said. Their secondary is probably the best weve played all year. Theyve got a really good defensive line. We knew it was going to be a challenge going into the day. We just didnt make enough plays.The biggest play for the Lions was a 67-yard throw from Stafford to Tate that gave the Lions first-and-10 at the Giants 11, trailing 7-3 in the second quarter. On first down, Zach Zenner fumbled at the end of a 7-yard run after being hit by Leon Hall and Olivier Vernon recovered in the end zone.Obviously, we lost the turnover battle, lost the rushing battle. Its tough to win on the road when you do that, Stafford said. Weve got to look in the mirror and correct what we did wrong today.Matt Prater accounted for the Lions points with field goals of 48 yards in the second quarter and 33 in the third. The second cut the deficit to 10-6 -- New York had gotten a 47-yard field goal from Robbie Gould late in the second quarter.However, the Lions never got closer as New York limited Detroit to 5 of 14 on third down and 324 yards.CANT STOP ODELL: Beckham had six catches for 64 yards. He has 85 catches for 1,173 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, and is the first player in NFL history to get at least 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons.WINGY: Less than a week after being named the NFC special teams player of the week, Brad Wing of the Giants had a punt partially blocked by Brandon Copeland for an 18-yard net. The Lions got the ball at their own 43, but failed to convert. Wing had two punts downed inside the 5 in the second half.OVERLOOKED BIG PLAYS: Rookie cornerback Eli Apple made one of the biggest plays for the Giants, recovering from 5 yards back to break up a deep pass to Tate in the end zone early in the second quarter.I didnt think I was going to get there, but the ball hung up a little and I got my fingertip on it, said Apple, who had seven tackles. Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who also had seven tackles, also made up yards to catch Tate on his 67-yard reception.INJURIES: Detroit starting CB Darius Slay left in the second quarter after aggravating a hamstring injury. Leading rusher Theo Riddick missed his second straight game with a wrist injury.For New York, Jenkins also left in the second quarter with a back injury and did not return. Backup QB Ryan Nassib was inactive because of a recurring elbow injury. LG Justin Pugh played for the first time since injuring a knee on Nov. 6UP NEXT:Lions: Visit Cowboys on Dec. 26Giants: Visit Eagles on Dec. 22.---For more NFL coverage: and Hydro Flask Cyber Monday .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Hydro Flask Cyber Monday Sale . - Connor McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime as the Erie Otters came from behind to defeat the visiting Guelph Storm 4-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. . Ancelotti says Ronaldo has recovered from a hamstring injury but "but he doesnt feel comfortable yet so we wont risk him." Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. Big East basketball got a big boost when Villanova won the National Championship last season, and No. 22 Creighton is hoping to join that wave by taking a step forward in 2016-17.The Bluejays, who host UMKC in the season opener on Friday, reached the quarterfinals of the NIT last spring and are trying to reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014 behind transfer Marcus Foster and leading returning scorer Maurice Watson, Jr. Foster is joined by four freshmen expected to make an immediate impact.Foster averaged 14.1 points in two seasons at Kansas State before sitting out last season due to the transfer. He needed only 16 minutes in Creightons lone exhibition game to score a team-high 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting.Basketballs been my life since I was very young -- so for me and my family right now, this is just a lot of excitement and anxiousness, Foster told the Omaha World-Herald.Bluejays coach Greg McDermott is a veteran when it comes to integrating transfers into his system. Watson Jr. (Boston University) and second-leading scorer Cole Huff (Nevada) were both new to the program last season after transferring in and led Creighton to a 20-15 record.When I got here, everybody, they opened up to me immediately; and you dont see that at most places, Foster told the Omaha World-Herald. This team, everybody likes each other, wants to hang around each other. You dont see that everywhere. Its good to have that on your team.It used to be that you either transferred because you didnt have a choice -- you got kicked off the team -- or you figured out you werent good enough to play there, McDermott said. And now, good plaayers transfer. Swell Cyber Monday. he Kangaroos rely on transfers as well and count at least eight on the roster including junior college transfers. Star senior Martez Harrison is an exception as a four-year starter and is trying to get back to the level he showed during his sophomore season.The Kansas City native was an honorable mention All-American and WAC Player of the Year after leading the league in scoring (17.5 points), steals (60) and assists (129) as a sophomore. The added defensive focus last season caused Harrison to slip to 15.4 points on 38.7 percent shooting and a spot on the second-team All-WAC.Harrison was named first-team All-WAC in preseason polling while fellow senior LaVell Boyd, who is in his second season with the Kangaroos after transferring from junior college, was named to the second team.Theres always that new excitement every year for each fan base and hopefully we can keep them excited, UMKC coach Kareem Richardson told reporters.The Kangaroos finished sixth in the WAC last season at 12-19 (4-10) and are due for only a modest improvement according to preseason polling that slated them fifth in 2016-17. UMKC will also visit No. 3 Kansas and No. 20 West Virginia in the non-conference slate.The Bluejays were slotted third in the Big East preseason poll behind defending champion Villanova and Xavier. Creighton will need to work not to overlook the Kangaroos with No. 9 Wisconsin scheduled to visit on Tuesday before heading off to St. Thomas for the Paradise Jam starting Nov. 18. ' ' '
