The New York Giants (3-5) must play perfect football in order to compete with the better NFL teams. Big Blue was anything but perfect, and the result was a third straight loss. The G-men went down with barely a whimper to the Indianpolis Colts 40-24 on Monday Night Football.
Andrew Luck threw for four touchdowns and the Colts’ defense kept Eli Manning and the Giants off balance in Indianapolis’ 40-24 romp on Monday night.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) entered their bye week coming off of two straight losses to division opponents and being outscored 58-21 in the process. Because of the hot starts by both the Dallas Cowboys (6-1) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-1), the G-men have very slim hope to be able to win the division.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) looked to restart their season against the first-Place Dallas Cowboys (6-1) after a disappointing loss last week to the Philadelphia Eagles. But New York did not particularly fare well on either side of the football in another losing effort, 31-21 at AT&T Stadium.
DeMarco Murray moved ahead of Jim Brown in the NFL record book. Tony Romo moved the Dallas Cowboys up and down the field for their sixth straight win.
The New York Football Giants traveled to Philadelphia for a prime time battle with the Eagles that would help determine NFC East supremacy. But New York started out poorly on defense, and the offense and special teams soon followed suit as the G-men got manhandled by the Eagles 27-0.
Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, LeSean McCoy had a season-high 149 yards rushing and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants 27-0 on Sunday night for their first shutout in 18 years.
The New York Giants unleashed their newest weapon, Odell Beckham, Jr., and the rookie speedster was certainly worth the wait. Beckham caught his first NFL pass, as well as his first NFL touchdown, and provided a much-needed offensive lift. After a mediocre first half, the Giants’ defense clamped down on Matt Ryan and company, and New York won going away, 30-20, at MetLife Stadium.
The New York Giants have certainly not seen a return on their investment in Odell Beckham, Jr. Beckham, selected 12th overall in the May NFL draft from LSU, has not played in a game this season, something that he hopes changes this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
This Week 4 NFC East game felt like a must-win for both teams. The Giants played like it, dominating in a 45-14 win. The Redskins looked overmatched.
