Giants-Jets final score: Giants fall 13-10 in overtime

The New York Giants fell to the New York Jets, 13-10 in overtime Sunday, Big Blue losing a game they looked to have control of late in the fourth quarter

Greg Zuerlein of the Jets kicked a 33-yard field goal in overtime for the winning points after hitting a 35-yard field goal with one second left at the end of regulation to tie the game.

After stunningly missing two field goals, including one with :28 left, Giants’ placekicker Graham Gano wasn’t making any excuses.

Injuries continue to mount for the Giants as the team lost quarterback Tyrod Taylor and tight end Darren Waller during the game.

The Giants fall to 2-6 and will travel most of the way across the country to play the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 9.

Instead, the Giants are on the precipice of a lost season, with a devastating late collapse now on their résumé. They turned sure success into abject failure in a 13-10 overtime loss to the Jets at rain-soaked MetLife Stadium.
