Good morning, New York Giants fans!
“Little mistakes” led to big plays
Here is linebacker Alec Ogletree on Sunday’s poor defensive performance:
“We just had a lot of little mistakes that turned into big plays. When you play a good team like that, they are able to do that to you,” Ogletree said. “Like I said, it’s disappointing the way we lost. We know we are a better team than that. It’s a long season, and that’s only one game. You can’t win them all, but we definitely hate the fact that we didn’t do better than what we did and what we were hoping for. We have another opportunity this week to go out there and get that bad taste out of our mouth.”
“Just not good enough on third down”
That was Eli Manning’s takeaway on Sunday’s offensive performance.
“We did a lot of good things, had some explosive plays, really good on first and second down, just not good enough on third down, and unfortunately a couple of them that we didn’t get were third and twos, and third and ones, and those types of plays,” Manning said. “Then, some of the other ones, we got in too many third and elevens, and twelves, and thirteens, especially in the second half. I thought we moved the ball, probably the first six possessions that we had it, we moved it really well, and then after that kind of stalled out, got some penalties, and did not play as well after that.”
The Giants went 2-of-11 on third down vs. the Cowboys.
