The NY Giants weren’t even competitive in a 34-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon
After a demoralizing 34-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, the NY Giants move to 4-11 on the season, officially being eliminated from playoff contention.
In a game where the Giants only managed to tally 194 total yards, many NY Giants fans are calling for the jobs of multiple members of the NY Giants coaching staff, and rightfully so.
Almost no players stood out this week with their performances, making it truly difficult to watch. However, since the game sadly still occurred, I must give out some grades and an MVP for this game.
Here are grades for some NY Giants players, alongside the NY Giants MVP from Sunday’s depressing loss to the Eagles:
NY Giants QB’s Jake Fromm and Mike Glennon: F
This game was horrible to watch, mostly due to poor performances from quarterbacks Jake Fromm and Mike Glennon.
The NY Giants only managed to throw for 108 passing yards throughout the entire game, and while some blame can be put on the play calling or the offensive line, neither of these QB’s could make even the simplest of passes, especially Jake Fromm.
After a one-drive performance last week against the Cowboys in which Jake Fromm completed 6 of his 12 passes for 82 yards, many NY Giants fans wanted Fromm to start this week, and he did.
In a little over two-quarters of play, Fromm managed to complete only 6 of his 17 passes for a measly 25 yards and one interception, missing easy throws left and right.
Fromm’s only interception came at the start of the 3rd quarter with the game tied 3-3. Jake Fromm took the snap, stepped up to throw, and as he threw the pass he was hit in the facemask by Genard Avery, which greatly influenced his throw. The pass then flew right over the head of Kenny Golladay and landed right into the lap of Rodney McLeod, things got out of hand after this.
While this was not entirely Fromm’s fault, as he was hit in the facemask during his throw, which was somehow not called by the referees, it certainly did not help, as after the interception the NY Giants then went on to get outscored 31-7 for the remainder of the game.
After Fromm threw this interception backup QB Mike Glennon entered the game, throughout the rest of the game Glennon would complete 17 of his 27 passes for 93 yards, 1 TD, and 1 interception.
While this was certainly not Glennon’s worst performance, is was still not that great.
Glennon’s only interception came with 10:29 remaining in the 4th quarter with the NY Giants trailing 27-3. Mike Glennon took the snap and delivered a dart to Kadarius Toney, then after Toney took a huge hit from Rodney McLeod, the pass was popped in the air and then intercepted by Alex Singleton, who then took the interception back for a TD.
Similar to Fromm’s interception, this was not necessarily Glennon’s fault, however, this killed any amount of morale the NY Giants may have had left.
The only TD throughout the entire game came from Glennon, however, when he delivered a beautiful end zone pass to Evan Engram for a garbage-time TD.
While Glennon certainly did not play his worst game as a NY Giant, Jake Fromm’s performance was putrid enough to give both of these QB’s a combined grade of F.
