The first 25,000 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative Eli Manning Bobblehead.

TEAM NEWS

The Giants and the Atlanta Falcons will both be looking for their first win of the season when they face off this Sunday. Big Blue suffered a heartbreaking 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team at FedExField last Thursday night, while the Falcons went on the road and fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 48-25.

The last time the two teams squared off was in October 2018 when the Falcons earned a 23-20 victory at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This game will be particular special as two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning will be welcomed to the Giants Ring of Honor and will have his No. 10 jersey retired during a special halftime ceremony.

GAMEDAY INITIATIVES

The New York Giants and Gatorade have selected Mr. Pat Gorbatuk of Manville High School (Manville, NJ) as the Lou Rettino High School Coach of the Week for Week 2 of the 2021 season. The Manville Mustangs defeated Dunellen on the road by a score of 48-6 in their first game of the season, after having their initial season-opener against Belvidere cancelled in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. The victory was a tremendous achievement and an uplifting moment for a program that finished 2020 with a record of 0-5, and suffered significant flooding damage throughout their community just ten days prior to the game.

The New York Giants will be working with their long-time partner Mentor Newark to mentor students from Weequahic High School and Eagle Academy in Newark, New Jersey. MENTOR Newark works to transform the community through mentoring by amplifying and accelerating the work of local youth mentoring organizations and providing these organizations with professional development and capacity building services. Through the Giants Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, staff members have volunteered to mentor students in professional development throughout the Fall. To kick off the mentoring relationship, Giants members joined Mentor Newark and students for their round table conversation at their 9th Annual Charity Golf Outing at Bayonne Golf Club in Bayonne, New Jersey on Monday, September 20th.
