NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Brian Daboll promised his New York Giants he wouldn't coach scared and knew the play he'd call for a 2-point conversion even though it had only worked sporadically during training camp.
It worked when it mattered most, and now the first-time head coach and the Giants have plenty to celebrate.
Daniel Jones hit Chris Myarick for a 1-yard touchdown pass, then found Saquon Barkley on a shovel pass for the 2-point conversion with 1:06 left
''We're trying to build something,'' Daboll said. ''We have a long way to go, but it's good to get that first W.''
Daboll didn't hesitate to keep his offense on the field for the 2-point conversion, which snapped the Giants' skid of five straight losses in season openers.
Barkley gave Daboll and new general manager Joe Schoen a game ball apiece in the locker room.
