3. DB Adoree' Jackson

It has been an up-and-down season for Adoree' Jackson, and this game was one of, if not his worst of the season. Not only did he play poorly against a pretty mediocre receiving core, but he had a few bad plays that cost the Giants big time.

For example, in the fourth quarter, with the Giants trailing 17-6, the Saints were faced with a 3rd and 16. However, Jackson got beat on a deep comeback route by A.T. Perry, a sixth-round rookie who has just 153 receiving yards on the season. Alongside this, earlier in the game, the Saints had 3rd and 6, and Jackson was flagged for defensive holding - the Saints went on to score a touchdown.

That's two scores that very easily could have been prevented had Jackson not made massive mistakes. This coincides with his season, though, as the veteran is having arguably the worst year of his career. Through 10 games, Jackson has allowed 32 receptions on 47 targets for 413 yards, and a touchdown.

This is the most amount of yards that Jackson has given up since 2018 and he hasn't even played a full season. With his contract expiring this offseason, we doubt Joe Schoen hands Jackson an extension.
