The New York Giants, whose offense ranks No. 32 (dead last) in multiple categories, continued their ineptitude in a heartbreaking 13-10 overtime loss against the Jets on Sunday. Well, leave it to Sauce Gardner to make the defeat even worse.
After the game, Gardner, the Jets' Pro Bowl defensive back, revisited some preseason drama that had unfolded between the two teams. In case you forgot, Jalin Hyatt blew past Garner on a route, which went viral on social media.
The pass was incomplete, though, but that didn't stop Giants fans from losing their minds. Gardner decided to clap back at the Big Blue faithful shortly after the final whistle on Sunday.

Gardner didn't hold back here and you could tell he was pretty annoyed with what the Big Blue supporters were telling him this summer. In the end, Gardner and Gang Green got the last laugh, with the Giants meltdown over the weekend being a tough pill to swallow.
Several factors loomed over the Giants as they approached Sunday's game, including a forecast of heavy rain and the unavailability of starting signal-caller Daniel Jones, who had yet to be cleared for contact after a neck injury sustained in a Week 5. Despite unbelievably low expectations heading into Sunday, no one could have foreseen just how poorly the Giants' offense would operate.
A combination of Tyrod Taylor, who exited the game with a rib injury in the second quarter, and rookie third-string quarterback Tommy Devito managed to accumulate -9 net passing yards, marking the lowest total in franchise history. To put this in perspective, this is the fewest passing yards by an NFL team since the 2000 Cleveland Browns, who matched this statistic in a a blowout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Clearly, the Jets' defense had no trouble stifling the virtually non-existent Giants offense. Now, with a 2-6 record and sitting at the bottom of the NFC East, things have simply gone from bad to worse for the NFC East side. Giants fans are in pain, but Gardner is clearly enjoying things quite a bit.
