Giants WR Odell Beckham will play against Lions on Monday Night Football

WATCH: Lions sing 'Happy Birthday' to Martha Ford in locker room after beating Giants

The Lions are going into this Week Two contest having notched a come from behind victory over the Arizona Cardinals, 35-23, at Ford Field in their regular season opener. Manning, who had been sacked four times in the first half, was dragged down in the pocket again on the second play of the second half. When it was suggested in April that he is past the midway point of his career, he scoffed a bit and said he wants to continue playing for a long time. "Just trying to get my feet wet".

The end result was a 24-10 Giants loss to the Lions in their home opener before a packed house at MetLife Stadium eager to turn last week's awful 19-3 loss to the Cowboys into a speck in the rearview mirror.

Manning faced heavy pressure for most of the night.

The defense continued to hang tough though, keeping the Giants in the game as things wound into the fourth quarter, but they couldn't do it all as things fell apart. Other times he kept his eyes focused downfield, searching for a pass-catcher, any pass-catcher, to make a play. It could cause a major reshuffling of the line with one solution being Justin Pugh moving from left guard to Hart's spot. He ended up holding up and doing a nice job. "He gets himself out of a lot of situations that you may think he's supposed to get sacked on". Will Eli Manning be as generous?

Down 17-7, the Giants found a spark in the third quarter thanks to a third-down conversion by Beckham, a 38-yard catch by tight end Jerell Adams, and a 17-yard grab Brandon Marshall to set up first-and-goal at the one. For a team that won seven games, that's a pretty significant stat.

It is a huge statement win, during which all of the Detroit Lions' biggest question marks made an exclamation-point impact.

The Detroit Lions' fifth round pick out of San Diego stepped up and took a punt back 88 yards for a fourth quarter touchdown. He did this on Monday, too, without his starting left tackle, Taylor Decker, and on a night where Decker's replacement - Greg Robinson - struggled to handle the New York Giants' pass-rush.

"Best I've felt yet", Beckham said via NFL Network's Kim Jones. "We've got to get to work". The defense wasn't good enough. "We can't turn the ball over".
