After the Giants settled for a chip-shot field goal on the opening possession of the game, Eli Manning led the offense back into Titans territory on the second drive thanks to a 50-yard hookup with Odell Beckham Jr., who was a shoestring away from breaking it for a touchdown.

However, it didn't take long for the rookie wide receiver to find the end zone.

Three plays later he caught a 15-yard touchdown from Manning, and the Giants were off to a fast 10-0 start.

2. Kuhn picks up Giants' first defensive score of the season.

For the second straight week, the Giants took a three-possession lead in the first quarter when rookie linebacker Devon Kennard sacked and forced quarterback Zach Mettenberger to fumble in Titans territory.

That's where third-year defensive tackle Markus Kuhn scooped up the football for a 26-yard return touchdown and a 17-0 lead as they went on to pace Tennessee for their first victory in more than two months.

3. Williams puts away Titans with 50-yard TD run.

Heading into Sunday, the Giants were last in the NFL this season with a minus-75 point differential in the third quarter. That included 13 unanswered points by the Jaguars last week when the Giants couldn't finish out the game after building a 21-3 lead at halftime. But unlike that game, the Giants finished on Sunday in Nashville, starting on their first drive out of the locker room.

The Giants' defense forced a three-and-out on the Titans' opening possession of the second half, and the offense took over and handed off the ball three straight times to rookie running back Andre Williams. On the third one, the 2013 Heisman Trophy Finalist broke off a 50-yard touchdown to give the Giants a commanding 30-0 lead in the third quarter as the Giants closed out the game and snapped their seven-game losing streak.
