McAdoo cedes Giants' play-calling to OC

(TSX / STATS) -- EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- After hitting rock-bottom a week ago in a loss against the then winless Los Angeles Chargers, New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo made a decision that might very well have saved his locker room -- and perhaps even his job.

McAdoo, who retained the play-calling duties when he was promoted to head coach last season, decided to hand off those duties to Mike Sullivan, the team's offensive coordinator in a move that was widely regarded as long overdue given McAdoo's predictability and head-scratching decisions this year.

The move worked. Sullivan, who last called plays as the offensive coordinator for the Bucs under then head coach Greg Schiano, orchestrated a mostly smooth game plan that saw the Giants rely more heavily on 12 personnel (72 percent of the snaps) while reducing its dependency on 11-personnel to 28 percent of the snaps.
