My Player of the Game
Saquon Barkley  
 
Game Notes
Giants offense looked really bad. Saquon Barkley was a one man show on offenses and without him, this would have been even worse. Giants have to wonder what Eli has left in the tank because that warning light is glowing! The defense was OK in this one and kept them in the game.

Analysis Notes
Eli looked over matched. He was not accurate and showed little zip. He was making poor decisions and just not up to what the Giants need to be able to win games.
