Sometimes, a win heals wounds faster than expected.
The suspension seemed to be more fuel to an already stoked fire in New York. An 0-5 start and the loss of star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. forced the season to take on a helpless feeling rather quickly. The spat between McAdoo and Rodgers-Cromartie added locker room discord to the potential list of ailments.
Long term, the Giants are much better with Rodgers-Cromartie, who has arguably been their best cornerback this season despite playing fewer snaps than Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins. The Giants surrendered nearly 400 passing yards to Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian in Monday night's 23-10 victory over the Broncos in Denver.
