Game Notes
The Giants started off hot on their first drive that gave many Giants fans like myself hope that this season would be different. That quickly changed when Dak started to shred the Giants d and abuse rookie cornerback Deandre Baker. Other that Even Engram and Saquon Barkley the Giants didn't have much to look forward to on offense. Cody Latimer had a couple good catches but not enough to do any damage in the game. Pat Shurmur made some head scratching calls on 3rd and 4th and short that changed the momentum of the whole game.

Comments on Coaching
Shurmur may be the biggest person to blame in this game. He made a lot of questionable decisions. For example on 3rd and 4th and 1 not having Saquon Barkley in the game.
