The NY Giants defense played its best game of the season, but Daniel Jones’ pair of costly turnovers fueled Buccaneers comeback win
Monday night, the NY Giants had several opportunities throughout the game to win, and pull off a double-digit upset of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but, Daniel Jones just continued to miss the mark.
Jones was wildly inconsistent, hitting on a beautiful 19-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate in the back of the end zone to pull the Giants to within two points and set up a failed two-point conversion try that would have won the game. But, Jones also threw two interceptions and missed wide receiver Darius Slayton deep downfield several times on plays that could have put this one in the bank for the Giants.
Ultimately, the Giants fell 25-23, slipping to 1-7 on the season, and face critical questions down the stretch that must be answered about the future of this team.
