Presser Points: 'It's about the will of the player'

There were two obvious questions for Brian Daboll when the head coach took the podium following the largest comeback in Giants history in the Super Bowl era:

  1. What the heck did you tell your team at halftime?
  2. How is Saquon Barkley after he had to be helped off the field late in the game?

Daboll answered those questions and more from State Farm Stadium following the Giants' 31-28 victory, a game in which they trailed 20-0 at halftime and 28-7 midway through the third quarter. Here's what you need to know:

🔹 About that halftime speech … "Not a bunch. A little bit, but we will keep that in-house. That's certainly not the reason. Execution plays a big part of football, and I thought they executed well."

🔹 As for Barkley, Daboll did not have any updates immediately following the game. Meanwhile, left guard Ben Bredeson left the game with a concussion.

🔹 Daniel Jones "finished strong" and is a "resilient young man."

🔹 All wins are "satisfying" and each one is different. "Every game you fight through some adversity."

🔹 Sunday was a "good example of being resilient and playing the next play and focusing on the next series."

🔹 "We played much better, and coached much better in the second half. You hope they don't all start out 20 to nothing."
