The Giants' starting pass-catchers were not impactful against the Colts.
Jerrel Jernigan was the only receiver to catch a pass from Eli Manning, and it was only for a six-yard gain. He also got the ball on an end around. For a moment, it looked like he would break free, but he was brought down seven yards later, short of a first down.
Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle were shut out, although Cruz had a 51-yard catch (and lost fumble) replaced by a five-yard illegal contact penalty. Neither of these receivers, projected to be the top two pass-catchers in New York's 2014 offense, have been factors at all in the preseason.
Starting tight end Larry Donnell did not catch his lone target of the night.
The next round of receivers weren't all that impressive either. Preston Parker, who was sufficient at returning punts, was the only one who stood out. He caught a couple of big passes, including a 30-yarder from Curtis Painter, and finished his night with three catches for 53 yards. It was the most prolific night of any of New York's wide receivers.
Kellen Davis caught up a bit in the tight end race with a three-yard touchdown grab.
New York's last-string guys were the most productive receivers on Saturday. Marcus Harris was big late in the game, picking up 41 yards on four catches. Travis Harvey made a great 27-yard catch that put the Giants on the doorstep and directly led to Michael Cox's two-yard touchdown run.
And the night wouldn't be over until Corey Washington caught a game-winning touchdown. The four-yarder he caught from Ryan Nassib with 55 seconds to play was his third in three preseason games.
The most surprising standout in the receiving game was Adrien Robinson, who has sunk to the bottom of the tight end race this summer. He converted a crucial fourth down with a 26-yard catch and, on the following play, caught a 33-yarder while running a similar route.
