What are New York Giants players saying after falling to 1-6 on Sunday with a 24-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks? Here is some of the post-game reaction.

Eli Manning on what his message would be to his teammates ...

“We’ve got to keep grinding. Obviously, we’ve had a tough start, lost some key players, but they’re not going to make it easy for us, no team [will]. So, we’ve got to keep finding ways to get better. I think the game plan these last couple of weeks was, try to keep the game close, get into the fourth quarter, try to make a couple big plays. We just didn’t quite hit those big plays, didn’t convert on some third-and-manageables today. But, we’ve got to get better with the guys that we got, and find a way to execute.”

Jason Pierre-Paul on playing out the season ...

“We’re all professionals. It don’t matter if we have a losing record or a winning record. You got to come out and do the same thing every week. This is why we’re professional football players. So we’re going to come back. Get this bye week and then come back and be ready to roll.”

Devon Kennard on what the Giants have left to play for ...

“We have a bye week and we have a nine-game season now. That’s the mentality we have to take. We still feel like we have a really good team and we got to go out and show it these next nine games. I think that’s what our mentality has to be.”

Orleans Darkwa on the struggling offense ...

“The defense played their tails off today. Like I said, as an offense, we got to put points on the board. It’s simple and plain. So I think with the bye week coming up, we got to look ourselves in the mirror and figure out what we do well, figure out what we do bad and kind of improve from there.”

Aldrick Rosas on his missed field goal, a kick that would have tied the score at 10-10 ...

“I let the whole organization down, I let the fans down, I let the whole team down. So yeah, it doesn’t feel good to let everyone down. I’m going to do my best to help the team win. ... We had a little momentum going. The offense did great and to put us in the best position to continue on with the game and give us the best chance to win, and I got to go out and I got to make my field goals. I got to continue to make this team better and win games.”

Evan Engram on being called for illegal touching on what could have been a gain of more than 70 yards ...

“I was pushed out. I guess that’s not the rule. It should be the rule. If you get pushed out, you should be able to come back in and touch the ball. I was pushed out. It was a big play. It hurt bringing it back but we need more of those plays.”
