AT A GLANCE
Quarterback Daniel Jones suffered a knee injury in the first half of Sunday's 30-6 loss to the Raiders, who were led by interim head coach and former Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce. The Raiders improved to 4-5 while the Giants fell to 2-7 on the season.
The Giants travel to AT&T Stadium and face the rival Cowboys for the second leg of a three-game road stretch. Dallas won the season-opening matchup, 40-0, at MetLife Stadium.
WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE OFFENSE
The Giants got some reinforcements in Las Vegas – briefly. Quarterback Daniel Jones was cleared from a neck injury that sidelined him for three games. Meanwhile, the Giants had to once again await the statuses of starting tackles Andrew Thomas, who had not played since the season opener because of a hamstring injury, and Evan Neal, who missed the past two games with an ankle injury. They were officially listed as questionable on the final injury report but were active on Sunday.
Jones' return lasted only one quarter as he left with a knee injury and was then ruled out. Undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito replaced him after backup Tyrod Taylor was recently placed on injured reserve with a rib cage injury, which he suffered in last week's start against the Jets.
Neal left in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury and did not return.
DeVito completed 15 of 20 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown (on a nine-yard pass to Wan'Dale Robinson in the fourth quarter) with two interceptions.
The starting offensive line was LT Andrew Thomas, LG Justin Pugh, C John Michael Schmitz, RG Ben Bredeson, and RT Evan Neal.
Saquon Barkley, who moved into fifth place on the Giants' all-time rushing list and had a career-high number of carries last week, ran 16 times for 90 yards on Sunday.
The Giants placed tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) and backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on injured reserve this weekend. They must miss a minimum of four games.
Tight end Lawrence Cager was signed to the roster from the practice squad.

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE DEFENSE
The Giants made a flurry of roster moves this week, starting with the trade of defensive lineman Leonard Williams, a two-time team captain, to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a 2024 second-round draft choice and a 2025 fifth-round selection.
Linebacker Justin Hollins was elevated from the practice squad.
Cornerback Adoree' Jackson suffered a concussion during Sunday's game and was ruled out.
In addition to relieving their head coach and general manager of their duties, the Raiders parted ways with their offensive coordinator and promoted Bo Hardegree on an interim basis. They also moved onto rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell, a fourth-round draft choice out of Purdue. The Raiders went on to score 30 points, nine more than their previous season-high, to snap a two-game losing streak.
WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT SPECIAL TEAMS
Kicker Graham Gano was placed on injured reserve with a left knee injury that will require surgery. The Giants signed two kickers – Cade York to the active roster off the Tennessee Titans' practice squad and Randy Bullock to their practice squad. Bullock, a 10-year veteran who kicked for the Giants in the 2016 season opener, was elevated to the active roster on Saturday while York was inactive.
