EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Matthew Stafford put up modest numbers against the New York Giants on Monday night, but they were more than enough the way the Detroit Lions’ defense and special teams were playing.

Stafford completed 15 of his 21 passes for 122 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions as the Lions thumped the Giants, 24-10 at the Meadowlands. Stafford’s scoring throws came in the first half, including a seven-yard pass to Eric Ebron that put Detroit ahead to stay.

The Lions hounded Eli Manning most of the night and held Odell Beckham Jr. to four receptions for 36 yards in his first game since returning from an ankle sprain. Ezekial Ansah recorded three of Detroit’s five sacks on Manning, who was 22 of 32 for 239 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Detroit also gave up just 62 yards on 18 carries.

The Giants got within 17-10 before rookie Jamal Agnew brought back a punt 88 yards for a touchdown with 12:56 to play. Matt Prater provided one of the Lions’ other special teams highlights, drilling a 56-yard field goal that bounced off the crossbar and through the uprights in the final minute.

The Giants dropped to 0-2.
