The New York Giants (3-5) must play perfect football in order to compete with the better NFL teams. Big Blue was anything but perfect, and the result was a third straight loss. The G-men went down with barely a whimper to the Indianpolis Colts 40-24 on Monday Night Football.
For the past week, Tom Coughlin begged his team to make plays. But the Giants, who dropped their third straight game, didn’t get much from anybody until the game was out of reach.
Luck threw for four touchdowns and the Colts’ defense kept Eli Manning and the Giants off balance Monday night in Indianapolis’ 40-24 romp.
With the playoffs in doubt again, GM Jerry Reese wants to see more — and Moore — from the Giants when they return from the bye on Monday night.
Coming off a bye, the Giants’ line has watched the video of the Steelers’ performance against what had been one of the NFL’s top defenses.
“Ben Roethlisberger, for sure,” the Hall of Famer told Joe & Evan in his weekly spot. “He’s big, he’s strong, he knocks off tackles.”
Reese wants the offense and defense to be more aggressive in the final nine games, and feels the NFC East will tighten up before the season ends. The Giants will be in that race, he said.
The Giants are on the brink of falling off the side of the mountain, but they have a fighting chance because they have Coughlin and Manning.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) entered their bye week coming off of two straight losses to division opponents and being outscored 58-21 in the process. Because of the hot starts by both the Dallas Cowboys (6-1) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-1), the G-men have very slim hope to be able to win the division.
The Giants need to split their next four games or they will split on the season. That’s not up for debate. Not even the Giants can rebound from the depths this year.
Giants QB Eli Manning is among nearly two dozen current and former NFL players appearing in a new series of PSAs denouncing domestic violence and sexual assault.
JPP has a message for anyone ready to give up on the Giants as they head into a bye week off disappointing losses to the Eagles and Cowboys. It’s simple: Don’t write off Big Blue.
While it may be premature to say the Giants are in trouble, they have a stretch of games coming up that could easily define their season– and not in a good way.
“The facts are that you don’t get rings for breaking records,” Tynes tweeted. “You get them for winning championships. I could mention playoff records (too).”
The Giants head into their bye week feeling as though they played an better game. But they still have consecutive losses to the two teams ahead of them in the NFC East.
