How did New York Giants players react to Monday’s 23-17 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles? Le’s go inside the locker room and find out.

Saquon Barkley on the nine-game losing streak ...

“We’ve lost nine in a row. Everyone is upset, everyone is frustrated. No one likes losing, especially how many times we’ve lost and the way that we’ve been losing games. We’re a way more talented team than what we are but your record shows who you are. We’re not playing up to our potential and to the talent that we have on this team. It sucks, it’s annoying, it’s frustrating but, we have to come to work and figure it out and keep working.”

Barkley on the team’s ability ...

“I know what we’re capable of doing. We’re just not doing it. We’re going out there but we’re not winning games. We’re up 17-3 on a team and they find a way to win the game. We get the ball first on offense and we don’t make anything happen right away. We see what the Eagles were able to do when they got the ball in the second half and that’s what we have to get to. We’re a talented team but, the good teams and the great teams find a way to make plays in critical situations and that’s what we haven’t done all year. All year.”

Sterling Shepard on the losing streak ...

“It is tough, especially with a game like this where you start off pretty strong. You think you are going to have another shot to go down there and score and you don’t, it’s tough. But we have to keep going. We will figure this thing out and whenever we figure this out, I believe that the train is going to keep rolling.”

Golden Tate on playing with Eli Manning ...

“He made some terrific throws and his knowledge of the game is one of the best out there. But at the same time he can’t do it by himself. We all have to be a little bit better. There were some times he was pressured, some times we were slow out of our routes or we didn’t get open. So we have to help him.”

Manning on the second-half struggles ...

“We just didn’t hit the big plays. They did a good job of playing more zone in the second half and keeping everything in front of them. We had some decent first and second downs, but just weren’t able to convert on third down. We had some decent runs and some third-and-manageable situations, but weren’t able to do anything. We had a sack on one play on first down that put us behind. They did a good job of changing some things up. Credit to them, they played well in the second half and took away some of our things. We weren’t able to execute well enough.”
