2. CB Adoree' Jackson

We absolutely hate to pin one play as the reason the Giants lost, but what in the world was Adoree' Jackson doing in overtime on a huge 3rd-down play? With Zach Wilson basically throwing a desperation ball downfield, it looked like the Giants were going to come up with a key stop and get the ball back with a chance to win it in the extra session.

Instead, Jackson was called for pass interference DEEP in Giants territory, basically putting the win on a platter for the visiting side. Jackson never turned his head and made clear contact with Jets receiver Malik Taylor. There was no chance this ball was going to be completed, but Jackson just made the silly mistake on this play. This just can't happen with the game on the line.

A quick look on social media shows that people are livid with Jackson and we don't blame them. Again, you can't put the Giants loss just on this play, but the Jets were able to capture the 13-10 victory shortly after this happened. Daboll was seen throwing his headset off in anger after the final whistle and his feelings are shared by so many. This is a play Jackson is going to want back.
