New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he is not worried about the team's offense, NJ.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

During Thursday's preseason finale against the New England Patriots, with Manning at quarterback, the offense had one first down and zero passing yards on two drives. During the preseason, Manning finished 20-41 for 188 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions.

"No, no, you don't lose your confidence," Manning said in an on-field television interview during the game. "You're just trying to get everybody on the same page, your teammates and coaches."
"Well, I thought we had a good week of practice," Manning said in a quote distributed by the team at halftime. "We didn't get much going [Thursday night], but we're getting ready for Detroit, that first game. We got the starters out healthy so that's always the most important thing. We have to get ready for Detroit on Monday night. It should be fun."

The Giants are transitioning to the West Coast offense under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. Wide receiver Victor Cruz said the new offense will be "more pass-happy" than in previous seasons.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the No. 12 pick in the 2014 draft, missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury.

The Giants open the regular season Sept. 8 against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.
