The New York Giants looked mostly helpless against the Green Bay Packers despite the one score game of 23-16. With their third straight loss, things might be looking bleak for the Giants locker room. But the team is not quite ready to give up though. Justin Pugh sees it a different way.

But the rest of the team is already doing some hard evaluating. Eli Manning has not played well these past two weeks. On Sunday night, he had a lot of throws he wishes he could take back -- one of which would have been a sure touchdown by Will Tye.

"I still feel we're a good offense. We have to understand how teams are going to start playing us and be ready for that." - Eli Manning— New York Giants (@Giants) October 10, 2016
Coach Ben McAdoo on the other hand is staying confident in the players on the team but saying they need to execute better.
"We didn't make enough throws or contested catches. We need to play and execute better." - Coach McAdoo #NYGvsGB— New York Giants (@Giants) October 10, 2016
In particular, despite Manning's struggles, McAdoo is not worried.
Asked if he's concerned with Eli's performance, McAdoo replied, "Which Eli?" Said he's not concerned with Eli the QB's play.— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 10, 2016
Meanwhile, Odell Beckham Jr. has been put on blast this week by the media about his emotions on the field. After a quiet night, he responded by being grateful that he's playing a game he loves.
