The Giants’ performance on Sunday isn’t very good, except that they can win in the NFC East.
Let’s look back on Sunday’s 27-13 defeat to the Baltimore Ravens by the New York Giants in a traditional “praise and wet willy” style.
Sterling Shepherd — The Shepherd was the only Giants receiver that was a real threat of all sorts on Sunday, with 12 targets and 9 catches at 77 yards.
Graham Gano — A pair of field goals to set a franchise record previously held by Josh Brownhill and give him 29 straight field goals.
Carolina Panthers And Dallas Cowboys — Sunday’s victory by these two teams means that the 5-10 Giants still have a chance to win the NFC East.Carolina Washington football team, 20-13.Cowboys Philadelphia Eagles, 37-17. So the Cowboys-Giants match on Sunday could be the title of the division.
The scenario is as follows:
- Washington won the division with a 17th week victory over the Eagles.
- If Washington loses and the Cowboys beat the Giants, the Cowboys win the NFC East
- If Washington loses WFT and Giants defeats Cowboys, Giants will become NFC East Champion
For Wet Willys …
Giants Initiatives — Joe Judge said it was “amazing” that the Giants had a hard time working on Sunday. I don’t know how many times the Giants missed the tackle or how many times the Ravens runner ran through the Giants defender, but I have to tackle when I have a chance to play against a good team. The Ravens don’t need help to become an explosive attack, but the Giants’ poor tackle gave them some.
Perform defense — The Giants abandoned 249 yards with 40 carries and 6.2 yards in a single trial. The Giants joined the game because they thought they had a chance to manage a Baltimore running game with beef on the defensive line. It turned out not to be the case.
Pass rush — You can cover the receiver for a very long time or let Lamar Jackson stand in your pocket for a long time before you get burned. For most of the day, Jackson was just standing … and standing … and the Giants’ pass rusher was standing in his pocket, not within sniffing distance. The Giants did not dismiss Jackson and hit him only three times.
Darius Layton — Two receptions with eight 26-yard targets. Slayton had one clear drop on the deep ball from Daniel Jones and broke another deep ball by Baltimore cornerback Marlon Humphrey. This is two major reward opportunities that Slayton was not available. Slayton has only nine receptions on his last 25 targets. He should be the Giants’ best recipient, and it’s not going to get the job done.
Matt Part — I don’t know how Pro Football Focus evaluates the rookie’s correct tackle, or what he is officially charged. However, Peart appeared to be a victim in two of Daniel Jones’ three back-to-back bags in the second half. After many periods of the season, being really impressive with limited play, Peart’s play fell from the last few times he was on the field.
Overall attack -The purpose of the game is to score. The Giants have averaged 12.0 points per game and have not reached the 20-point plateau in the last six games. The Giants on Sunday suffered from improper penalties, drops, pass protection issues, and the receiver’s inability to play.
The Giants scored three points in the first half of Sunday, one tenth in the third down and had the ball only at 24:51.
