Negative: Slow starts to game for the Giants
New York averages two points per game in the first half, by far the worst in football. The Giants have yet to score a touchdown in the first half of the season. The Bengals are the only other team that has yet to reach the end zone in the first half.
The Giants did not score in the first half in either Week 1 or Week 2 and netted just two field goals in Week 3. All three of New York's roster units deserve blame for the first-half struggles. There's just no excuse for all of these sloppy starts.
The Giants offense has been inept, struggling in the passing and running games. The defense cannot get off the field and has allowed numerous third and long conversions, including two against San Francisco on basic screenplays. On the first drive of New York's season, Graham Gano's field goal attempt was blocked and returned for a touchdown.
All three units have struggled, putting extra pressure on the others. New York must grab leads earlier in games like last season to maximize success. If they continue to have to come from behind or chase teams, it will be a recipe for disaster the rest of the way.
