1. Tyrod Taylor with the screw up of a lifetime

Following a miracle punt return TD from Gunner Olszewski, the Giants faced a tough decision. Kick a PAT and tie the game, or go for two and potentially win it. Considering that Crosby had missed an extra point earlier in the game, it was understandable when we saw the offense take the field.

What followed then was nothing short of mind-blowing. After taking the snap, Taylor was faced with two options, dump it off to Barkley, who was two yards away, for a walk-in touchdown, or take off to the pylon, also for a walk-in touchdown. Taylor chose the first option, yet in embarrassing fashion, he threw the ball behind Barkley.

Later, Taylor would go on to say that the errant pass was due to indecisiveness on whether to run or pass, but that doesn't make this any better. This is the sort of mistake we'd expect out of rookie UDFA Tommy DeVito, not someone with as much experience as Taylor.
