Game Notes
Nightmare of a game. Eli Manning is finished. Offensive play calling is just as bad. Could not execute anything. It was amazing for them to be in the game for that long with how atrocious the offense looked. Defense hung in there against a very mediocre offense. The score of the game doesn't tell the true story. Get ready for another long season Giant fans.

Comments on Coaching
As vanilla as it gets. Some of the most predictable calls ever. Needs to adjust to personnel.

Game Notes on Offense
Eli Manning might be the least talented starting QB across the league. He does not belong in this league any more. The offensive line doesn't help much, but there were plenty of plays that could've been made that Eli is simply not capable of anymore.

Analysis Notes
There are too many explosive play makers on the offense to put up such a poor performance like this one. If it wasn't for rookie Barkley fight for every single yard, the Giants would not have been able to move the ball at all. The receivers need more opportunities to make plays, especially newly paid Odell Beckham. Get him the ball!

Game Notes on Defense
Defense kept them in the game for as long as they could. Made several stops on 3rd downs to get the offense another shot to score. They were noticeably getting gassed in the fourth after spending all that time on the field.
