That quite literally could not have gone worse for the NY Giants. In a Monday Night Football showdown with the Seattle Seahawks, the offense, defense and special teams were brutal to watch in primetime.
Brian Daboll was furious from start to finish and NY supporters are ready to throw in the towel on the season thanks to the 1-3 start. The Giants don't even look close to being a playoff-caliber team. Monday's loss was filled with embarrassing efforts, including these four plays in particular:
4. Daniel Jones fumble in the first quarter
You're going to be read about Daniel Jones a lot in this piece and not for good reason. Jones had another terrible showing and things looked rough for him early on. In the first quarter, Jones recorded a costly fumble, with the Seahawks jumping all over the ball shortly after. This wasn't all on Jones, though, as the offensive line didn't do it's job. Shocker, right?
Marcus McKethan looked absolutely lost on this play and Shane Lemieux was no better. Lemieux was forced to enter the game at left guard because usual LG Ben Bredeson moved to center following the injury to John Michael Schmitz. Shortly after the Seahawks recorded this turnover, Geno Smith hit DK Metcalf for a touchdown pass.
That gave the Seahawks an early lead and Seattle never looked back. Jones now has 24 lost fumbles to his name in this five-year career. This one put the Seahawks in a great position to score thanks to the field position and the Hawks took advantage of the Danny Dimes gift.
