The NY Giants suffered another embarrassing loss, but they lose no ground in the playoff hunt.
With playoff implications on the line, the NY Giants continue their late-season losing streak, now at three straight games. And though they scored as much as the prior two weeks combine, the team looked anything but effective.
The defense was unable to contain all aspect of the Baltimore Ravens high-powered offense. Their inability to stop neither the run nor the pass put the Giants behind big — early.
The Giants gave up 432 total yards, the second most they’ve allowed all season. Most of that came in the first half, as the defense looked worse than at any point all season, allowing 155 rushing yards and 127 passing yards.
And the 17 point deficit going into halftime proved too much to mount a second half comeback. Despite starting quarterback Daniel Jones giving up zero turnovers in his return to action, the Giants were only able to muster 269 yards, and only 54 of those were on the ground.
That marks the fourth straight game the offense failed to reach 300 total yards. And it makes their third straight game of fewer than 100 yards rushing. The Giants are winless this season in games they rush for under 100 yards.
Shockingly, it’s still possible for the Giants to take the NFC East division crown. But this team looks more like the one that started off 0-5 and caused fans to panic than the team that won four straight and gave fans hope.
If they do beat the Dallas Cowboy’s in Week 17, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Football team, then the Giants will go on to represent the division in the playoffs. And perhaps some of the players in this week’s NY Giants Grades will be the reason they do. Or don’t.
