Giants rookie Evan Engram Jersey flagged for crotch grab after TD

Elite Logan Couture Jersey Giants rookie tight end Evan Engram channeled his inner Michael Jackson on Monday night after scoring his first NFL touchdown.

The Ole Miss product grabbed his crotch after the 18-yard pass from Eli Manning, a move that remains banned under the league’s celebration rules.

Evan Engram scores first career TD but picks up unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. He grabbed his crotch w/his left hand during celebration.

Along with the penalty, the move will likely earn Engram a fine from the NFL. The league fined Marshawn Lynch $20,000 for grabbing his groin in 2015.

Before the officiating crew decided to take center stage, though, this was an interesting game and a bit of a reality check for the Broncos’ offense under Trevor Siemian. Siemian had stretches during the first two weeks where he looked like a franchise quarterback, but he also threw two picks and had a would-be pick-six dropped by the Chargers early in the opener. While linebacker Ramon Humber dropped one would-be interception, the Bills generally weren’t as forgiving. A scrambling Siemian tried to force a second-and-long pass over the middle of the field in the shadow of his end zone, and it didn’t work.

The Broncos survived the E.J. Gaines pick, thanks to a holding penalty and a sack of Taylor, but they weren’t as lucky the second time around. Siemian was again under pressure, this time on the edge of the red zone, and tried to throw a pass away off his back foot and instead only found impressive rookie Tre’Davious White. The Broncos were in a favorable spot on the Buffalo 24-yard line with 11 minutes to go. Instead, with the ensuing drive including the Miller penalty, the Bills ran more than seven minutes off the clock before kicking a field goal to stretch their lead to 10.
