Maybe you have already had enough when it comes to thinking or reading about the New York Giants’ loss to the New York Jets on Sunday. Here, though, are some stats and snap counts that are instructive as to the state of the Giants these days.
- The Giants’ six-game streak is their longest since they lost seven games in a row from Oct. 12-Nov. 30, 2014.
- The Giants have allowed at least 27 points an NFL-high nine times this season and at least 31 points six times, tying Tampa Bay for the league high.
- The Giants, who played without three offensive line starters for most of the game, rushed for only 23 yards on 17 carries, a 1.4-yard average. Saquon Barkley had one yard on 13 attempts. The 23 yards was the Giants’ lowest total on the ground since Sept 15, 2013, when they ran for 23 yards in a 41-23 loss to Denver. Barkley has gone a career-long five consecutive games without rushing for 100 yards.
Giants RB Saquon Barkley had -13 rushing yards before contact on Sunday, the fifth-fewest by a player since ESPN began tracking it in 2007. He was contacted at or behind the line of scrimmage on 11 of 13 runs. The Jets dominated the Giants up front Sunday.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) November 11, 2019
- The Giants totaled 281 offensive yards, the fifth time in six games they finished with less than 300 yards.
- This was this was the second time in three games that Daniel Jones threw for four scores (also at Detroit). He is the first Giants quarterback to twice throw four touchdown passes in a season since Eli Manning in 2010. Manning also did it in 2007.
- Darius Slayton scored two touchdowns, the second time this season he has done so. He is the first Giants receiver with a pair of two-touchdown reception games in a season since Odell Beckham in 2016 and the first rookie to do it since Beckham in 2014.
- Placekicker Aldrick Rosas has now missed kicks in four straight games.
- Bennie Fowler, waived earlier this season and then brought back, played 55 snaps at wide receiver. Cody Latimer played six and Cody Core played only four.
- Rookie tight end Kaden Smith played 41 snaps and had his first NFL catch, which went for a yard.
- Offensive tackle Eric Smith played the first 54 snaps of his career.
- Cornerback Sam Beal played the first 10 snaps of his NFL career after Janoris Jenkins suffered a concussion.
