The New York Giants are a bad football team right now. That's about all there is to say after the 0-3 Giants suffered a 38-0 beatdown at the hands of the previously winless Carolina Panthers (1-2) Sunday afternoon.
Going back to last season the Giants have now lost five of their last six regular-season games.Four of those have been lopsided losses, including a 34-0 shutout to the Atlanta Falcons last season.
The last time the Giants started 0-3 was 1996. They finished 6-10 that season, a year in which they were shut out twice. The winless Giants now have to get ready for a trip to Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday to face the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs.
The Giants totaled only 150 yards on offense while the Panthers had 403. New York had only 18 yards of offense at halftime, trailing 17-0 at that time. The Giants averaged 3.5 yards per play.
Eli Manning completed 12-of-23 passes for 119 yards and one interception. He was sacked seven times.
