5 takeaways from the NY Giants terrible loss vs. the Seahawks in Week 8
1. Back to earth for Big Blue nation
This is a tough defeat and it’s going to be a long flight for the Giants heading home from the Pacific Northwest. The Giants blunders on special teams put them in too big of a hole, and NY is not good enough to give a club like Seattle extra chances and opportunities. This was the main issue on Sunday.
What was really frustrating is that the offense took a step back as a whole too. Barkley didn’t look like his usual self, as the Seattle defense limited him to only 53 rushing yards on 20 carries. Jones, who rushed for 107 yards last week in the win over Jacksonville, rushed the ball six times vs. the Hawks for 20 yards. He was also sacked five times.
The bye has come at the right time for the Giants, as they’ve got to do some soul searching after the embarrassing showing at Lumen Field. Daboll has done a fantastic job of turning around the culture inside the locker room, and he’ll try and fire every guy on the roster up to try and bounce back from this result. Adversity has arrived for the Giants, who will next take on the Texans on Nov. 13.
