New York Giants’ Roger Lewis Jr. Hauls In First NFL TD (Video)

After Odell Beckham Jr. left due to a hip pointer, Eli Manning found rookie Roger Lewis Jr. to get the New York Giants on the board.

With New York Giants leader Eli Manning looking to collect career win number 100, he threw his 300th career passing touchdown. 

It went to rookie Roger Lewis Jr. on the corner route, making the score 10-7 in favor of the Baltimore Ravens (video above).

The touchdown came on the heels of Odell Beckham Jr. leaving the game and heading to the locker room temporarily due to a hip pointer. He suffered the injury on a deep shot earlier in the game that saw him land awkwardly on the turf, courtesy of Ravens CB Jimmy Smith.

New York got off to a dreadful start in this one, placing its defense in horrible spots in the first quarter.

Through it all, though, the score remains 10-7 with the two teams in the locker room for halftime.
