5. Offensive Line Falls Apart
The Giants offensive line has been decent this year. For much of this game they were terrible. Geoff Scwhartz broke his leg and should miss the rest of the year. Eli Manning was constantly pressured , sacked and knocked down. He had trouble finding some of his open receivers for much of the game. You never want your franchise Quarterback to be hit and sacked a lot. Manning took a huge beating. Many people are quick to bash his game but should instead realize how tough he is as he was battered the whole game. He also had his hand stepped on.
The offensive line failed to open up any holes in the run game. All four of the Giants running backs were fairly quiet. The Giants four headed monster does not seem to be working as well as it once was. The Giants can’t afford to stop running the football. They also can’t afford Eli Manning to be constantly beat up. With games against the Jets , Panthers , and Vikings you have to worry about the offensive line.
