The New York Giants' reconstructed offensive

 line will face its second consecutive stern test when the New Orleans Saints visit MetLife Stadium on Sunday.The Saints (2-1) feature one of the NFL's premier defensive ends in Cameron Jordan http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/thomas-morstead-jersey-authentic , who is tied for the league lead with four sacks. The primary job of blocking him will go to Chad Wheeler, a second-year tackle who went undrafted out of Southern California.Wheeler received praise from Giants coach Pat Shurmur for the way he handled Houston defensive end J.J. Watt in the Giants' 27-22 win last week. Wheeler will be making his second start in place of Ereck Flowers, the Giants' first-round draft pick in 2015, though Watt had three sacks in the second half. Not all of those were Wheeler's responsibility.Wheeler started five of the 11 games he played as a rookie last season, four at right tackle and one at left tackle. His approach to taking on some of the best edge rushers in the league is that of a veteran."I just have to take one moment at a time," said Wheeler. "You can't psyche yourself out. You can't be a fortune teller."Shurmur has been impressed with Wheeler's preparation."The one thing about Chad is he cares and he competes," said Shurmur. "He did a good job in the run game last week and on a lot of those pass plays he blocked really well. He helped us win the game last week."He has another great challenge. (Jordan) is a marquee pass rusher. For the most part he'll (Jordan) be lined up on the right side, so we have to do a good job of blocking him. He (Jordan) is good against the run and good against the pass."No matter what play you call he really disrupts the game."Wheeler joins center John Greco, left tackle Nate Solder, left guard Will Hernandez and right guard Patrick Omameh in the new-look offensive line."I think they did a good job just picking up the pressures, just competing, just keep fighting," quarterback Eli Manning said. "He (Wheeler) is getting tested again, but we have to help him out some. He practices hard, he finishes blocks. He'll be fine."NOTES: New York placed RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) on injured reserve. ... TE Evan Engram (knee), CB Eli Apple (groin) and LB Olivier Vernon (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Saints http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/ken-crawley-jersey-authentic , according to coach Pat Shurmur. ... Vernon returned to practice on a limited basis earlier in the week but did not participate Friday. "This was a fast practice with preparation for New Orleans," said Shurmur. "He's made great progress this week and he's close. He just wasn't quite ready."... B.W. Webb will move from the nickel to outside cornerback to replace Apple, with Donte Deayon and safety Michael Thomas going to the slot. . WR Cody Latimer (knee) also was ruled out. ... CB Antonio Hamilton (groin) and WR/returner Stacy Coley (hamstring) were listed as "questionable." What’s up Who Dats? Tee Word is here with the New Orleans Saints Player of the Week for Week 2 of 2018! The Saints notched their first win of the season by limping past the surprising Cleveland Browns in 21-18 outcome. It wasn’t pretty, but it’s a start. At this point in the last four seasons, the Saints were 0-2 instead of the current 1-1. After lighting up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense in a Week 1 loss, it was hard not to give the player of the week nod to Drew Brees. But, I knew that in the absence of Mark Ingram for three additional games, Brees would be relied upon to drive the offense and put up high numbers to keep the Saints competitive until he had a reliable ground attack. Alvin Kamara did his part to earn the award and make it a close vote. Let’s not forget Michael Thomas having a career day that was only dampened by a fumble. As expected, the usual suspects were in line for the award and it was down to Brees, Kamara, and Thomas again. The defense offered a trailing entry in Cam Jordan who had 2 tackles on the day, both were sacks. But the process of elimination was very simple, if you’re on offense and didn’t score or turn the ball over, you were out – bye, bye AK41, sit here MT13. That left Brees and Jordan – hmm鈥eah Youth Michael Thomas Jersey , you know wuzzam, this was all Brees. When it mattered most, Brees was on point late and instrumental in the comeback win. Entering the fourth quarter, trailing 12-3, Brees and the offense came to life, rattling off 18 points to take the lead. Brees led the offense to their first touchdown of game by going 4/4, including the scoring pass on a 2 yard toss to Thomas making the score 12-10. After trading punts, safety Marcus Williams gave Brees the break he needed by intercepting Tyrod Taylor and returning the ball 22 yards into Browns territory. Brees went 2/2 for 13 yards and a TD pass on the drive, and aided by the 2 point conversion took an 18-10 lead late in the game. Of course the Browns would manage to tie the game on the ensuing drive. But Brees was not done. He calmly completed 2/2 for 50 yards to Ted Ginn Jr. ton set up a Wil Lutz field goal for the go ahead score, setting the final score at 21-18.The defense showed signs of improvement but the offense overcame two early turnovers to come on late and score 18 points in the fourth quarter. A trust test is on deck against the Atlanta Falcons, but the team appears to be shaping up just in time to face their most fierce rival. As always, Thanks for reading, Be Cool Who Dats!
