New York Giants
The Giants fell short when they succumbed to a 27-21 loss versus the Arizona Cardinals. The players only chipped in average performances. It seemed this was not enough to maintain a bearing on an above-average-performance Cardinals. QB Daniel Jones threw 1 touchdown. He went 22/35 and contributed 223 air yards. He also earned an interception by the end of the matchup. Saquon Barkley was the pace master of the game. Even though he only carried the ball 18 times, he managed to cover 72 yards, averaging 4 yards per play. His long run of 20 yards resulted in 1 rushing touchdown. Golden Tate was the receiving lead, with 6 receptions contributing a total of 80 yards.
The New York Giants held the ball for 65 plays, gaining a below-average 263 yards. With that number of plays, the Giants should have either gained more yards or more points. Their defeat was indicated in their below-average defense. The opponent escaped with a 67% completion rate. The biggest blow to the Giants’ defense, however, was the 38 rushing plays which cost them 156 out of the 245 yards conceded to the opponent. The Giants really need to do something with their 19-point-per-game scoring. They’re ranked as one of the worst scoring teams in the NFL right now. They need to tidy up their defensive loopholes while at the same time beefing up their offense. It’s not going to be an easy task, and it’ll probably take until next season to iron things out.
Players to watch: Daniel Jones (175 ATT 107 CMP 1144 YDS 6 TD 19 CAR 121 YDS 6.4 AVG), Saquon Barkley (55 CAR 309 YDS 5.6 AVG 2 TD), Evan Engram (34 CAR 379 YDS 11.1 AVG 2 TD), Sterling Shepard (25 REC 267 YDS 10.7 AVG 1 TDS), Darius Slayton (14 REC 217 YDS 15.5 AVG 1 TDS), Golden Tate (15 REC 195 YDS 13 AVG 1 TDS)
The Lions were not successful in their matchup versus the Minnesota Vikings, ending up with a 42-30 scoreboard. It was a high-scoring game for both teams. However, the Lions lacked the juice to catch up with the Vikings. QB Matthew Stafford played an exemplary game, with the stats to prove it. He went 30/45 at 364 passing yards and chucked in 4 touchdowns. He also earned an interception for that game. J.D. McKissic did not contribute much in the rushing department. He only possessed the ball 5 times for a total of 29 yards. His long run of 14 yards was not able to net any touchdown. Danny Amendola did slightly better by catching the ball 8 times and ending up with 105 yardages gained.
The Lions pumped out 67 plays and earned 433 yards. However, what they lacked was the conversion of these yards into points. They also lacked a brick-wall defense. For that matchup, they allowed the Vikings to connect 71% of their catch attempts. These can easily be read as potentially converted points, and definitely contributed to the Lions’ loss. The Lions were also powerless to stop 37 rush attempts. All in all, they were conceded a whopping 503 yards. The Lions try to rush whenever they can, but they lack the focus and skill of top-tier teams who can convert their attempts into touchdowns. They need to fix their defense badly. Having their opponent score consistently is like neutralizing whatever gains their plays may have made.
