Perhaps tired of seeing Eli Manning’s leadership of the New York offense come up dreadfully short, Giants coach Ben McAdoo called a toss for running back Shane Vereen and hoped he could give the team a lead with a tricky pass play. It went as well as any other McAdoo decision this year, with Vereen underthrowing into double coverage and giving the ball away, squandering what was first-and-ten in the red zone.


Vereen now has more interceptions than touchdowns on the year.
