Touchdowns & top plays from OTA No. 5

CJ-BOARD-BOBS

They're halfway there.

The New York Giants returned to the practice field on Tuesday morning for organized team activities (OTAs), their fifth of 10 allotted spring practices before mandatory minicamp in two weeks. Here are the highlights from the day:

TOUCHDOWNS

*Tyrod Taylor threw two long touchdown passes, one to C.J. Board and another to fellow wide receiver David Sills V.

*The Giants ended practice with a winner-take-all competition. In the scenario, the offense had just scored a touchdown to pull within one point at the end of a game, and rather than settle for overtime, the group stayed on the field to win it with a two-point conversion attempt. It paid off as the offense converted.

TAKEAWAYS

*Despite some valiant efforts by the defense, including multiple close calls at the hands of cornerback Darnay Holmes (more on him next), it was another clean day for the offense in the turnover department.

MORE TOP PLAYS

*Holmes, a third-year cornerback and former fourth-round draft choice, broke up three passes, including a potential long touchdown. Later, during red-zone drills, Holmes nearly intercepted another ball.

*Defensive backs weren't the only ones to break up some throws on Tuesday. Linebackers Elerson Smith and Niko Lalos also deflected passes near the line of scrimmage.

*Daniel Bellinger, a fourth-round draft choice, caught a pass from Davis Webb. Fellow rookie tight ends Andre Miller and Austin Allen, who were undrafted, also had catches.

*Jones connected a few times with wide receiver Travis Toivonen, who spent time on the Giants' practice squad last season as an undrafted rookie out of North Dakota. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder started the year with the Seattle Seahawks.

*Running backs had an active day both in the run and pass game, led by Saquon Barkley. Matt Breida, who played in Brian Daboll's offense last year in Buffalo, also showed his explosiveness on a catch-and-run.

*Taylor flashed his elusiveness on a run during 11-on-11 drills. The veteran quarterback has 2,001 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground in his career.
