This is how crazy 2020 was for the New York Giants …
Three weeks ago, the Giants appeared to be on track to win in the NFC East after defeating the Seattle Seahawks on the road.
Since then, they have lost to the Washington Football Team three times in a row, lost first place, and look like a team that has forgotten how to win again.
Still, despite losing to Baltimore Ravens 27-13 on Sunday, the Giants still have a chance for the postseason. If the Giants defeat the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium in the 17th week and Washington loses to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, the Giants will clinch the NFC East to play off.
Crazy, I know. Therefore, before the start of the 17th week, the stock price has fluctuated after losing to Baltimore.
Dave Gettleman has given Logan Ryan a whole new deal (a three-year, $ 31 million deal) for the wonderful Christmas season. Ryan had a one-year contract with the Giants, but showed that it was worth more.
Ryan tackled a total of eight times in the match against Ravens, achieving a total of up to 83 tackles during the season.
Ryan definitely deserved a new deal, and he will be a big part of future defense.
To be fair to Isaac Yiadom, he was asked to play much more than expected, probably due to injury and COVID-19 issues.
But in reality, Yiadom wasn’t very good in 2020, not so good against Ravens, burned in some plays and missed many important tackles.
Everyone has one or two bad games. On Sunday, Yiadom really stuck out.
The Giants returned Daniel Jones too soon, and it was obvious. Sure, Colt McCoy wasn’t that good against the Cleveland Browns, and that’s why Jones is the starter for this team.
Jones advanced 24 to 41 with a touchdown to 252 yards and the Sterling Shepherd. This was Jones’ first touchdown pass in a long time.
Sure, this year was a bit tough for Jones, but he showed that he was in a difficult situation and ready to continue to be sharpened.
If anyone was suffering from a second year slump-type season, it was definitely the wide receiver Darius Layton.
Slayton finished the match on Sunday with two catches at 26 yards and no touchdown. Slayton has been targeted eight times by Jones, so no one can say he wasn’t trying to steal the ball to Slayton.
Slayton hasn’t played a 100-yard match against the Dallas Cowboys for the second time in the season since October.
Slayton played a decent game like playing against the Browns and the Eagles, but he was supposed to be the Giants’ number one receiver, but it wasn’t.
Fans wondered if the Giants needed to sign a free agent, replace it with a receiver, or draft someone like Devonta Smith, Alabama. ..
Blake Martinez was completely deprived of making a roster for the NFC Pro Bowl, but it’s good that he didn’t affect his play on the field.
Martinez finished Sunday’s match with a total of 12 tackles and 7 solos. It was the 7th match that tackled more than 10 times in the 2020 match.
Martinez has a total of 140 tackles during the season and is one of the best middle linebackers in the game of the year.
Zero sack. Not one from the Giants in the 16th week.
Sure, trying to contain Lamar Jackson isn’t easy, but it’s a problem that you can’t contact him once.
There are many good players in the Giants defense, but they don’t have the true elite pass rusher they need.
Leonard Williams leads the Giants with 8.5 sack and could have a long-term contract in the off-season, but the rest of the defenders had trouble reaching the quarterback.
Lorenzo Carter should be one of them, and he was on the field for five games in one bag. Following Williams, Dexter Lawrence is the second Giants sack with four.
The team is desperately in need of a true number one pass rusher in defense next season.
