Evan Engram remains an enigma
The Giants’ can’t seem to find ways to consistently get and keep Evan Engram involved, and the inconsistent tight end was at least partially to blame for Daniel Jones’ seventh interception of the season.
Jones rifled a pass to Engram about two yards in front of the line of scrimmage that bounced off his hands and was intercepted by Eagles defensive back Jalen Mills with 10:03 remaining in the second quarter. The interception came three plays after Jones hit Engram in stride for a 17-yard gain.
For all of Engram’s athleticism, he just isn’t the focal point of the Giants’ offense that he’s expected to develop into year after year.
Worse, Engram has become a liability.
Between having the interception bounce off his hands, and a perfectly placed pass from Jones ricochet off his fingertips with 2:07 remaining that would have at best given the Giants a fresh set of downs inside the 2:00 warning and potentially set up an insurance policy touchdown, Engram made two of the bigger gaffes of the night.
