It was another humiliating loss for the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, as they were embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks, 24-3. The defense could not tackle, the Giants offense looked sloppy, Daniel Jones was awful and the offensive line failed to protect Jones giving up 11 sacks.
Now at 1-3, this season for the Giants is not looking like the one they had last year when they won nine games and took down the Vikings in the Wild Card Round. This team just simply isn't good and the play has been rough, especially from their $160 million quarterback.
While we are only four games into the season, this season for Big Blue looks like it can't be turned around. Here's why:
3. The struggling NY Giants defense
The Giants defense this season has been just like the offense, a flat-out disaster. Yes, they do blitz and get after the quarterback a lot, but that does not mean they're still the top elite defensive squad we thought they would be.
Thus far this season, the Giants have only sacked the opposing quarterback three times, have yet to force a turnover and have given up more than 20 points in all four of the games they've played. They have also given up over 400 yards per game and most importantly, they can't seem to tackle and it showed in their game against Seattle on Monday night.
On a simple underneath throw on 3rd-and-10 for the Seahawks, the Giants quite simply showed a lack of effort to tackle tight end Noah Fant. Fant made it look easy running down the sidelines for a huge 51-yard gain that set up and eventual touchdown.
Yes, the offense is something to be concerned about being outscored 64-3 in the Giants two home games, but this defense is not looking that sharp. And with top players like Kayvon Thibodeaux, Dexter Lawrence and Azeez Ojulari not playing at the level we thought they would, it's a cause for concern.
