Let’s check the Pro Football Focus grades and snaps counts from the New York Giants’ 23-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.

Offense

  • Left tackle Andrew Thomas, as anyone who watched the game likely suspected, was the highest-graded offensive player at 79.5. Thomas gave up just two hurries in 54 pass-blocking snaps.
  • Center Jon Feliciano (71.6) graded out surprisingly well, considering the overall offensive line performance. Feliciano allowed three pressures.
  • Right tackle Evan Neal (46.0) and left guard Ben Bredeson (44.8) were the lowest-graded offensive players. Neal ended up being charged with three sacks and five total pressures allowed, a 21.6 pass blocking grade. Bredeson had a miserable 7.2 pass blocking grade, though he was only officially charged with one pressure.
  • Mark Glowinski had a 75.1 run blocking grade, but only scored 34.2 in pass protection. He gave up three pressures.

Snap count notes:

  • Wide receiver breakdown: Sterling Shepard (58 snaps), Richie James (53), David Sills (45), Kenny Golladay (24), Darius Slayton (14).

Defense

  • Defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence and practice squad cornerback Fabian Moreau tied for the highest grade among defensive players at 77.5. Lawrence had five tackles and a quarterback hit.
  • Kayvon Thibodeaux had a 73.2 grade, with a tackle, a hurry and a pass defensed. Azeez Ojulari only scored a 40.6 grade in his season debut.
  • A week after playing 46 snaps in his NFL debut, rookie safety Dane Belton played only 11 snaps and had the Giants’ lowest grade, a 27.1.
