New York Giants
The Giants collided against the Green Bay Packers and absorbed an expected defeat. They closed the game with a 31-13 scoreboard. QB Daniel Jones was going for 20/37 with 240 air yards. He tried to salvage a lost cause. In the end, he settled for 1 TD and 3 picks. Saquon Barkley carried the ball 19 times over 83 yards. Kaden Smith was the top receiver, catching the ball 6 times across 70 yards.
The New York Giants only rushed for 27 out of 64 plays. They obviously had difficulty surmounting the opponent’s tight-knit defensive line and opted to do a mixed offense. It’s been proven time and again, however, that only the most proficient teams are able to execute a mixed offense successfully. The Giants are far from that, and their playstyle suffered as a result.
In the tale of the yards, the Giants posted 335, while the opponent made it to 322. The Giants had a lackluster defense. They were only able to cut down the opponent’s throw attempts to a 64% completion rate. However, what really set the death knell was the 26 rush attempts which was converted into opponent points.

The Philadelphia Eagles were soundly beaten by one of the lowest-ranked teams in the NFL, the Miami Dolphins. It was a surprise defeat ending in a 37-31 scoreboard. QB Carson Wentz was going for 28/46 on 310 air yards. He maxed out his game by connecting 3 thrown TDs and 1 pick. Miles Sanders performed 17 rush attempts for 83 yards. Alshon Jeffery was the best among the receivers, clocking in 9 catches for 137 yards.
The Eagles didn’t expect the Dolphins to mess up their game plan. Because of the Dolphins’ solid defense, the Eagles switched to a mixed-offense tactic. As a result, they only rushed for 19 out of 67 plays. They weren’t that good in converting thrown yards into points, however, and it showed badly in that game. The Eagles earned 386 yards, but the opponent was ahead with 409 yards.
The Eagles offered token defense with a 70% throw completion rate. They also conceded 20 rush attempts. The opponents’ mixed offense tactic worked better than theirs. The Eagles should take this game in stride and keep in mind all the lessons they’ve learned.
