Giants' Austin Mack: Back down to one catch
Mack caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.

Giants' Austin Mack: Leads team in receiving Week 9
Mack corralled four of five targets for 72 receiving yards during Sunday's 23-20 win against Washington.
Mack made his fourth appearance of 2020 in Sunday's NFC East tilt, though he had accumulated just one catch for one yard in his three prior outings combined between Weeks 6 and 8.

Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard and C.J. Board all remain ahead of Mack on the depth chart, and that does not include Golden Tate (coach's decision), who was a healthy scratch for Week 9. Add in the arrival of Dante Pettis (shoulder) from San Francisco, and it's possible this is Mack's most notable blip on the radar all season.... See More ... See Less
