Highlights: Lions Defeat Giants 24-10 On Monday Night Football

The Detroit Lions have started their season exactly like they wanted, but the same can't be said of the New York Giants. With a 24-10 win Monday night, the Lions improved to 2-0, while the Giants are 0-2. Check out highlights, stats and more from the Lions' win. 

The Lions struck first, with Matthew Stafford finding Marvin Jones for a score. That 27-yard score was Jones' only catch of the night.  

The Giants had Odell Beckham back after he missed week 1, but he didn't put up the type of numbers he's accustomed to. He was limited to just four catches for 36 yards. .

After entering the second quarter down 7-0, Eli Manning found Evan Engram for the game-tying score. 

But the Lions would take the lead back, as Matthew Stafford found Eric Ebron for the score. Ebron finished the game as the Lions' leading WR. 

Just before the half, the Lions extended their lead with a bouncing Matt Prater field goal. 

After the Giants netted a field goal, Jamal Agnew provided the biggest play of the game, on an 88-yard punt return for a TD. 

That would be the final score, as the Giants couldn't get a critical fourth down conversion at the Lions' 29 with just over four minutes to play.
