Dwayne Harris certainly proved his value to the Giants on Sunday as a special teamer.

"I thought Dwayne Harris did an outstanding job with punt return and kickoff return," Tom Coughlin said. "He gave us something that we can be excited about and the players can be going forward."

But it could have been more. A lot more. Twice Harris seemed to have the ability to gain more yards before slipping on the MetLife Stadium turf. And he wasn't the only one who took a spill. Several other Giants players, including Odell Beckham Jr. on one route, were losing their footing on the artificial turf.

"We had some people slipping and sliding the other day and I mentioned it to our equipment people," Coughlin said. "It looked like a couple times [Harris] got up on the side of his foot and that's why he slipped, but there were other people out there slipping, too. I would bring the same question up."
