Giants TE Adrien Robinson flashes vs. Colts; postgame notes

Posted Aug 16, 2014

TE Adrien Robinson showed his ability to make big plays with two big catches on the Giants game-winning drive

INDIANAPOLIS– Through his first two NFL seasons, Adrien Robinson was a largely invisible Giants player.

The tight end from the University of Cincinnati played in only three regular-season games and did not have a reception. His anonymity continued this month, when he had one catch in the Giants’ first two preseason games.

But it was impossible to miss Robinson Saturday night in Lucas Oil Stadium. He had two critical catches totaling 59 yards on the game-winning drive as the Giants climbed out of a 26-point hole to defeat the Indianapolis Colts, 27-26.

The tight end from the University of Cincinnati played in only three regular-season games and did not have a reception. His anonymity continued this month, when he had one catch in the Giants’ first two preseason games.

But it was impossible to miss Robinson Saturday night in Lucas Oil Stadium. He had two critical catches totaling 59 yards on the game-winning drive as the Giants climbed out of a 26-point hole to defeat the Indianapolis Colts, 27-26.

“Robinson made some nice plays in the middle of the field,” coach Tom Coughlin said.

The third-year pro didn’t touch the ball until approximately 90 seconds remained in the game and the Giants had pulled to within 26-20. But the comeback appeared likely to end when the Giants faced a fourth-and-16 at their own 22. That’s when Ryan Nassib threw deep down the middle to Robinson, who latched onto the ball for a 26-yard gain.

“I knew it was pretty far,” Robinson said. “But at the same time, with the concept that we had called, I was going to be stretching the middle of the field, anyway. So it just worked out.”

On the next play, Nassib again found Robinson in the center of the field, this time for a 33-yard gain to the Colts’ 19-yard line. After a pass interference penalty, Nassib threw the game-winning four-yard touchdown pass to Corey Washington. And Robinson could say for the first time that he had contributed significantly to a Giants victory. That it was in the preseason did nothing to mitigate his joy.

“It feels really good,” Robinson said. “It’s not necessarily a weight lifted off my shoulders, but it feels good to finally go out there and prove that, hey, I’m here for a reason and I can make plays and this is why.“

I was just talking about going out there and being able to make a play, not only for myself but to prove to my teammates and to my coaches that I can make plays. In the fourth quarter on a game-winning drive, I think that was absolutely huge for me. I’m just going to try to keep building on it, boost my confidence up and do the same thing next week and going into the regular season.”

NOTES


*Another week, another game-winning touchdown scored by Washington, the undrafted rookie from Newberry College, whom the Giants acquired off waivers from Arizona in May. The 6-4 wideout turned a pass from Nassib into a 73-yard score to beat Buffalo in the Hall of Fame Game and caught a three-yarder from Curtis Painter late in the game to defeat Pittsburgh.

Against the Colts, he out-jumped safety David Sims to secure Nassib’s four-yard throw with only 55 seconds remaining.

“They called a go route on the outside,” Washington said. “Ryan saw that there was no safety over the top, so he threw the ball up and he expected me to go up and get it, and that’s what I did.” “Again, again Corey Washington made a heck of a play,” Coughlin said. “It’s a good feeling, but I’m trying to make the 53-man roster,” Washington said. “I have to do stuff like that coming from a small school.” At this point, the question is, what can he possibly do for an encore?

*The Giants did not come out of the game unscathed. Cornerback Prince Amukamara left the game in the first quarter with a groin strain. “I came out because I couldn’t open up to top speed,” Amukamara said. Tackle Charles Brown (shoulder), safety Cooper Taylor (toe) and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (elbow) also left the game.

*The Giants quarterbacks did better the later they entered the game. Nassib completed 11 of 15 passes for 158 yards. No. 2 Curtis Painter was six-for-14 for 64 yards. But Eli Manning hit just one of his seven passes for six yards.

*The Giants’ offense had two turnovers nullified by Indianapolis illegal contact penalties on the same drive in the first quarter. Manning threw a pass to the left side for Victor Cruz that was intercepted by Darius Butler at the Giants’ 35-yard line, but linebacker Kelvin Sheppard was flagged for illegal contact. On the next play, Manning and Cruz hooked up for a 51-yard gain on a pass down the right side. But Cruz fumbled the ball, which was recovered by safety Mike Adams. That turnover was wiped out by another illegal contact penalty, this one on Greg Toler. Contact by defenders more than five yards beyond the line of scrimmage has been a point of emphasis for officials this preseason.

*Michael Cox led the Giants with 32 rushing yards on seven carries. Marcus Harris was the leading receiver with four catches for 41 yards.

*Linebacker Jacquian Williams had a team-high nine tackles (four solo)…Damontre Moore and Devon Kennard each had a sack.

*The Giants were flagged for 13 penalties for 128 yards, the Colts 13 penalties for 81 yards.

*Former Giant Hakeem Nicks led the Colts with five receptions for 53 yards. But he had a 36-yarder taken away on offsetting penalties when he waved his finger at Trumaine McBride.
Nicks was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting.

*Steve Weatherford punted nine times. Zak DeOssie had four special teams tackles.

*The Giants’ game captains were Indiana natives Mathias Kiwanuka, Stevie Brown and Curtis Painter.

*The following Giants players were not in uniform: wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) and Trindon Holliday (hamstring), cornerback Jayron Hosley (foot), running back Peyton Hillis (ankle/foot), tight ends Daniel Fells (knee) and Xavier Grimble (hamstring), defensive tackle Mike Patterson (shoulder) and linebacker Jon Beason (foot/PUP).

*Former Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was among the 14 Colts who did not suit up for the game. Bradshaw had neck surgery last season.

*The Giants will host the Colts in a Monday night game on Nov. 3. Indianapolis is the only preseason opponent the Giants will also face in the regular season.
