The Giants have a great deal to consider on their bye week.
New on their brains will be Sunday’s 34-27 misfortune to the Jets, their 6th in succession. Hovered at the highest point of oneself exploring report will be the moderate beginnings, turnovers and enormous plays permitted, all of which raised their head in Week 10 at MetLife Stadium.
“We all understand the importance of every game, especially this game,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “It was a hard-fought game. We found a way to be down 14 points, and then we found a way to be up. Then we found a way to be down and we lost it. That’s the reality of it.”
IT WAS OVER WHEN: Jets cautious lineman Quinnen Williams recuperated a bumble on a last-dump parallel between Darius Slayton and Golden Tate, who each got two touchdowns before in the day, as time lapsed. After Daniel Jones was sacked for the 6th and last time on the past drive, the Giants punted from their very own three-yard line with 2:51 left in the game. The Giants constrained a three-and-out on the following belonging, yet the offense got the show on the road back with only 18 seconds staying in the game.
“Yeah, well certainly, we felt like we could get the ball back again,” Shurmur said of punting. “Certainly, we were way behind in the game in terms of the clock management part of it because we would only get the ball with 30 or something seconds. When you punt the ball, they could always fumble it, then they are going to run a few plays where we’ve seen something happen there. We felt like because we were so far backed up and it was such a long fourth down that was the right thing to do.”
BACK AND FORTH MOVEMENT: The Giants neglected to score in the main quarter for the fifth time in the previous six excursions. Counting the 14-0 deficiency to the Jets, they have been outscored 55-3 in the opening edge over that range. Be that as it may, much the same as different games, the Giants fought back. They in the long run led the pack on Jones’ fourth touchdown pass, their second to Tate, late in the second from last quarter. The Jets reacted with 10 unanswered focuses, including a one-yard touchdown run by Le’Veon Bell that was set up by a 33-yard pass impedance punishment on new kid on the block cornerback DeAndre Baker at last zone.
“You realize you need to be able to sustain that energy or the momentum or what you’re doing consistently enough to handle their punches, handle their drives or their scores,” Jones said. “And we didn’t do that.”
SAQUON’S YARD: It resembled a grammatical error in the case score. Saquon Barkley surged multiple times for a net aggregate of a solitary yard. As a group, the Giants scrambled for only 23 yards, 20 of which originated from their newbie quarterback. Barkley, who missed Weeks 4-6 with a lower leg damage, recorded a profession low 31 yards from scrimmage. It was his least since increasing 37 yards prior this season at Tampa, where he endured the damage and didn’t play the subsequent half. Barkley wouldn’t recognize any waiting impacts in Sunday’s postgame storage space.
“The Jets played a hell of a game,” Barkley said. “They have a hell of a defense. Going into the game they were only averaging 3.1 yards per carry. They did an amazing job. I made sure I went to [defensive coordinator Gregg] Williams, shook his hand and said good job.”
JONES THROWS FOUR (AGAIN): With his second four-touchdown execution of the period, Jones trails just Deshaun Watson and Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton (three each) for the most such games by a newbie since in any event 1950. The other four TD game came two weeks prior in Detroit, another misfortune. The likenesses between those two games didn’t end there. Jones didn’t toss a block attempt in either excursion yet lost a bobble that was returned for a touchdown.
SLAYTON’S BREAKOUT: As a fifth-round pick, wide collector Darius Slayton keeps on resembling a take in the 2019 draft class. Slayton was a splendid spot on Sunday and got two touchdowns, much the same as he completed two weeks prior in the Lions game. they broke their own highs with 10 gets for 121 yards all the while.
WHAT THE LOSS MEANS FOR THE GIANTS: The Giants head into their bye week on a six-game losing streak. A year ago, they went into their break having lost five games in succession. They won four of their next five games yet completed the season at 5-11. The 2019 Giants return in Week 11 with a street game at Chicago.
“The state [of the team]? We are disappointed we haven’t been able to win a game for six, right? That’s the way it works,” Shurmur said. “We’re disappointed that we didn’t win this game. That’s where it’s at. The state of the team, that’s where we’re at.”
WHAT THE WIN MEANS FOR THE JETS: seven days in the wake of losing to the then-winless Dolphins, the Jets improved to 2-7. Both of their successes have come against NFC East rivals – the other was Dallas – and the Jets will remain in the division one week from now when they travel to Washington.
“I think for Jets fans right now, it’s just about sticking with it,” second-year quarterback Sam Darnold said. “Sticking with the process and understanding that we’ve got a good squad and we’ve got a really good head coach, really good offensive and really good defensive staffs, as well. It’s just about putting it together and making sure, like I keep saying, that we stay within ourselves and stay patient.”
