3. Giants Lost Turnover Battle

Eli Manning had three passes intercepted. Coming into the game he had been very efficient with just 6 interceptions. He had three on Sunday and while all three weren’t necessarily on him they were turnovers none the less. Manning made some throws that could have been interceptions also. He didn’t play well in this game until late. The Giants have forced turnovers this year and couldn’t do it this week.

The first pick was clearly on Shane Vereen. The ball bounced right off him for the pick. The second one was a contested through as Dwayne Harris made a nice catch but took a deadly hit. The ball bounced up and was intercepted. The throw was in a lot of traffic. The last interception was a ball Rueben Randle didn’t fight for and didn’t even come back to the football. The announcers blamed Randle for botching the route.

The Giants defense hasn’t been good all year but they have made some big turnovers that have helped them win games or help them stay in games. The Giants didn’t get any interceptions and fumbles. They also allowed a touchdown on fourth down and couldn’t make the stop.
