Receivers embody 'next man up' mentality

Before they took the field to face the Green Bay Packers last Sunday in London, the unlikely quartet wearing Giants uniforms came together for a positional pep talk.

"You kind of look around and say, 'It's just the four of us,' said Darius Slayton. "'It's all we got. But at the same time, it's all we got, but it's all we need.' So, I think it's just having that confidence and knowing all the guys out there can get the job done."

That's exactly what they did. The improbable foursome of Richie James, David Sills, Marcus Johnson and Slayton combined for 13 of the Giants' 21 catches and 142 of their 217 receiving yards in the team's 27-22 victory against the Packers.

As recently as three weeks ago, the odds of that group being active together and exclusively were astronomical. But then Sterling Shepard suffered a season-ending torn ACL, Kenny Golladay hurt his knee and Kadarius Toney sustained a second hamstring injury, forcing all of them to join rookie Wan'Dale Robinson on the sideline.

But the unheralded players who replaced them were undaunted.

"All the receivers came, and we were like, 'Look, it's us, nobody's giving us a chance,'" Johnson said. "Not only are they not giving us as a team a chance, but they're looking at the receiver room like, 'Ain't no way this is going to cut it.' It's cool. That's what life is, proving people wrong. And that's what we went out there and did."

Former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder met with the Giants at practice on Wednesday.
