The Giants offense started Week 2 hot, then they cooled down again until the fourth quarter.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Saquon Barkley opened the scoring when he capped the first drive of the game with a 27-yard touchdown run, but the Buffalo Bills followed that up by reeling off three unanswered touchdowns. The Giants were down 21-7 and entering desperation mode in the final period when they finally found their way back into the endzone.

It was a big moment for T.J. Jones, who scored his first touchdown as a Giant.

How about that for a catch? Manning did his part by staying patient in the pocket and delivering the ball, but it still took a tremendous effort from Jones to haul it in and get both of his feet down in-bounds.

Jones and company almost didn’t find their way into the end zone. Manning completed a pass to Cody Latimer to convert a vital fourth-and-two before the Giants could then punch it in for the points.

Manning was clearly relieved after seeing Jones bring the ball down successfully. The 38-year-old celebrated with a fist-pump, in a show of emotion that isn't often seen from Giants QB.

But the celebrations wouldn't last. The Bills responded with another TD, and ultimately held on for a 28-14 victory. Buffalo moves to 2-0, while the Giants move to 0-2.
