DETROIT (AP) — Davis Webb took a step toward restoring confidence that he can be a capable backup quarterback for the New York Giants.

Webb took advantage of his opportunity to play for Eli Manning Jakub Voracek Jersey Kids , throwing a go-ahead touchdown in the second quarter to help the New York Giants beat the Detroit Lions 30-17 Friday night.

“Everyone says that wins don’t matter in the preseason, but they leave a much better feeling in the locker room,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said.

Webb was 14 of 20 for 140 yards with an 8-yard TD pass to Wayne Gallman Jr., who scored for a second time later in the game. Webb showed poise in the pocket and touch down the field, connecting on a perfectly lofted 40-yard pass to Russell Shepard to set up Aldrick Rosas‘ 55-yard field goal in the second quarter.

“I just wanted to hit the reset button on everything that happened last week,” Webb said.

Manning, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, was a healthy scratch.

Webb, a 2017 third-round pick, played well after performing well last week. He was 9 of 22 for 70 yards, sailing passes over open receivers in the preseason opening loss against Cleveland to raise some concerns about whether he’s ready to be the team’s No. 2 quarterback.

“I was very happy to see Davis Webb bounce back that well as a starter,” Shurmur said. “He made significant improvements from last week to this week Anthony Averett Jersey , and that shows why we have so much confidence in him. I thought he was calmer and he did a very nice job.”

The Giants rested rookie running back Saquon Barkley with a strained hamstring and didn’t test receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s surgically repaired ankle.

Giants rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta, a fourth-round pick, scrambled and scored on a 10-yard run in the third quarter to put the Giants ahead 17-3. Gallman took an inside handoff and bounced to the outside on an 11-yard run to put New York up by three TDs early in the fourth.

The Lions started Matthew Stafford after sitting him in last week’s game at Oakland and he didn’t have much time to make plays behind a porous offensive line. Stafford was 2 of 5 for 51 yards and was sacked twice and hit once as he threw.

Detroit coach Matt Patricia, though, refused to blame the guys up front.

“I don’t think we played particularly well at any position,” he said.

Jake Rudock replaced Stafford in the second quarter and finished 23 of 30 for 171 yards with a TD. Rudock came back in the fourth, relieving veteran Matt Cassel, who threw an interception.

Even though it was just a preseason game, Patricia was clearly not happy with his players, staff and himself.

“We got to do a better job and it starts with me,” he said. “We’ve got to get these guys ready to go. We obviously have a lot of work to do.”

INJURIES

Giants: RB Jalen Simmons left the game in the second half with a concussion. Shepard left the game in the fourth with a finger injury.

Lions: LB Steve Longa appeared to hurt his right knee when he tried to tackle Lauletta on his TD run in the third quarter. After being evaluated on the field, Longa walked off the field slowly and went toward the locker room.

HE’S BACK

Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah played for the first time this preseason http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/d.j.-swearinger-jersey , coming back from an undisclosed injury that kept him out of the beginning of training camp.

“I noticed him on a couple plays,” Patricia said. “It was good that he was out there, working hard.”

NATIONAL ANTHEM

There were no player protests during the national anthem. The Lions, as they did last week, stood on the sideline with their arms locked together. The Giants all stood at attention and many players held their right hand over their heart.

PREGAME CHAT

Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders met Barkley before the game, chatted briefly and posed for some pictures.

“He’s put together,” Sanders said.

UP NEXT

Giants: Face the Jets on the field they share, technically as the visitors on Aug. 24.

Lions: Visit Tampa Bay on Aug. 24.

No pitcher homers on Thursday. Just a well-played game for Nolan Arenado and company.

Gerardo Parra and Raimel Tapia had pinch-hit RBI singles in Colorado’s three-run sixth inning, helping the Rockies to a 5-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Colorado took two of three for its first series win against Arizona since May 5-7, 2017. The Rockies hit five homers in a 19-2 victory Wednesday night, including the first career drive for right-hander German Marquez, but they took the finale behind a timely rally and solid defense.

”They’ve given us a really hard time Reilly Smith Jersey , so to win a series finally at home against them feels really good,” Arenado said.

Trevor Story homered for the Rockies, and Kyle Freeland pitched six-hit ball into the sixth inning. DJ LeMahieu had two hits and drove in a run.

Colorado trailed 1-0 before its rally in the sixth.

Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray (3-2) hit Carlos Gonzalez and walked Chris Iannetta with one out before he was replaced by Silvino Bracho, who was called up before the game. Parra then hit a tying single to right, and Tapia followed with another single off Andrew Chafin. LeMahieu drove in Parra with a sacrifice fly.

”The Iannetta at-bat was very crucial and I think it swung the game a little bit,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. ”Chris is a very experienced hitter. He’s going to fight you all the way through the entire at-bat.”

The Rockies added two more in the seventh on Story’s 18th homer off of Randall Delgado and Gonzalez’s RBI single.

”We got a couple of clutch hits and we put an inning together,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. ”We nicked their bullpen a little bit and our bullpen did a good job.”

Scott Oberg (3-0) got two outs for the win.

The Diamondbacks jumped in front on A.J. Pollock’s RBI single in the first. Paul Goldschmidt and Steven Souza Jr. each had two hits.

Souza led off the fourth with a triple and hit a leadoff double in the sixth and was stranded each time. Ketel Marte, John Ryan Murphy and Ray struck out in the fourth, and Souza was thrown out when he tried to score from third on Murphy’s hard-hit grounder to a drawn-in Arenado in the sixth.

Arenado, a five-time Gold Glove winner at third, knocked Murphy’s smash straight up, grabbed it out of the air barehanded and threw a strike to Iannetta at home.

”I already knew where I was going to go with it http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/jamize-olawale-jersey , I had a feeling he was going home,” he said. ”Luckily enough it popped up and it was just right in front of me. It was a big out to save a run there.

”Those are my nightmares. Righty, top-spinner, those are always the ones you get uncomfortable with.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Diamondbacks: RHP Clay Buchholz (strained left oblique) is scheduled to pitch a simulated game on Friday. Lovullo said Buchholz will throw 55 to 60 pitches.

Rockies: RHP Chad Bettis (blister) won’t be activated from the 10-day DL for a possible start Saturday. Black said he will announce the starter for that day on Friday.

ROSTER MOVES

The Diamondbacks placed right-hander Shelby Miller (right elbow inflammation) and left-hander T.J. McFarland (strained left neck) on the 10-day disabled list and recalled right-handers Matt Koch and Bracho from Triple-A.

Miller left Wednesday’s loss with elbow tightness and was sent back to Arizona for further evaluation. It was Miller’s fourth start since returning from Tommy John surgery.

”He’s going to get an MRI,” Lovullo said. ”Holding out hope and always optimistic that it’s going to be as positive as it can be. (Wednesday) night was in a rough spot, he felt bad, but nothing he did was his fault.”

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (10-6, 4.85 ERA) will face Anibal Sanchez on Friday to start a three-game series in Atlanta.

Rockies: RHP Antonio Senzatela (3-2, 5.34 ERA) opens a three-game home series against Seattle on Friday night.
