The NY Giants season has come off the rails since a blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys back in Week 5, as the division rivals are set to meet Sunday, here’s a look at why

When the NY Giants last faced the Dallas Cowboys back in week 5, New York was defeated 44-20 after multiple key players like Saquon Barkley, Daniel Jones, and Kenny Golladay were all injured. Sunday, the rivalry renews at MetLife Stadium.

Following the loss to the Cowboys, earlier this season, the NY Giants fell to 1-4 and ever since then,  NY Giants season has seemingly spiraled out of control.

While there are several factors as to why, there are 3 big reasons that showcase just how the Giants‘ season went down the gutter.

Here are the 3 main reasons why the NY Giants season collapsed after their previous encounter with the Dallas Cowboys:


This one was obvious.

The NY Giants season has been plagued with injuries to many key players, such as Jones, who is currently going through a neck injury that could end up being quite serious.

Other players like Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, Saquon Barkley, and Sterling Shepard all missed several games throughout the season.

Throughout the season the NY Giants have dealt with injuries.

However, the injury bug really first hit the NY Giants in their week 5 matchup against the Cowboys. In this game we saw Barkley go down with an ankle injury that would cause him to miss four consecutive games, Kenny Golladay suffered a knee injury that caused him to miss 3 consecutive games, and Jones suffered a concussion that seemed much more serious than it ended up being.

After this week, the NY Giants dealt with several other injuries to players such as Andrew Thomas, who missed 3 games due to an ankle injury he suffered in week 6, and even recently with the NY Giants losing both Adoree’ Jackson and Darnay Holmes in a Week 12 game against the Eagles.

While injuries are definitely a freak thing that are difficult to control, you’d have to imagine that the NY Giants will be making some changes to their training staff.
