Olivier Vernon, Kerry Wynn, Romeo Okwara and Mike Basile all recorded sacks. And Lorenzo Carter had one taken away due to a Giants penalty. Landon Collins was pumped up about the defense’s performance after the game: “We are gritty, we are aggressive, and we are playing how we want to play,” Collins said. LB Ray-Ray Armstrong intercepted a Matt Cassel pass that DB Grant Haley tipped in the air after a T.J. Jones drop … Wynn was dominant early. He made the tackle on all three of the Giants’ first-half kickoffs — he joked he was being “greedy” — and has been so impressive that Shurmur made the rare comment of putting a player on his roster already. “Very pleased with what he’s done to this point, and I’m looking forward to him having a really good year. I wouldn’t consider him second-tier. He’s a front-liner. He’s a good football player.” … LB Alec Ogletree, beaten for a 36-yard TD in man coverage by Browns TE David Njoku last week, surrendered a 42-yard catch and run Friday to Lions RB Theo Riddick … The first-team offensive line did not get a great push in the run game and for a second straight game appeared to miss some assignments.
