EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants face adversity for the first time this season as they head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
Not only did the Giants (7-3) lose unexpectedly one-sidedly to the four-win Detroit Lions, they were attacked after playing their worst game of the season.
In their previous losses to the Cowboys (7-3) on Sept. 26 and the Seattle Seahawks (6-4), Brian DaPaul’s team tied the game early in the fourth and had a chance to win.
This was not the case on Sunday. New York was down 24-6 entering the final quarter and never threatened in a game where they turned the ball over three times.
The Lions’ rookie defensive end, Aidan Hutchinson intercepted Daniel Jones and later recovered an Isaiah Hudgens fumble for 14 points.
The Giants lost rookie receiver Wandell Robinson for the season to a torn ACL and four other players who left the game with a variety of injuries make their status for Thursday uncertain.
Cowboy confrontation is not fun at all. They’ve won 10 of the past 11 against the Giants and destroyed the Vikings (8-2) in Minnesota on Sunday.
“We don’t talk about excuses — we never will be,” Daboll said Monday. “We have people on our roster who will be ready to play. And that’s our job as a coaching staff is to prepare those players to play.
“Again, you’re always going to face adversity — whether it’s in a game, whether it’s a season. We’ve been talking about it since April. I don’t think that’s something you’re talking about all of a sudden. You have to teach it, and you have to try to learn from it.”
This next game may show whether the Giants can continue what has so far been a surprising run toward the playoffs.
what to do
Despite the two interceptions, Jones showed promise in the loss. There were questions about whether the Giants could win a game in which Jones had to throw and put up a lot of points.
Jones finished with a season-high 27 of 44 for 341 yards. He also threw a touchdown and ran for another, finishing with a team-high 50 yards. The Giants gained 413 yards.
If the Giants can run the football and not make turnovers, they stand a chance.
What needs help
Choose a stage of the game. They all do. They generated so little offense that the game got out of hand. The defense did not stop the run, missed tackles and gave up four points in the red zone by giving up a season-high 31 points.
Kicker Graham Gano missed two more points—one blocked—and punter Jimmy Gillan had 25 yards from his own 43. The Lions then went 68 yards in seven plays to take a 17-6 halftime lead. A poor kickoff covered up another TD setup to open the second half.
Kenny Juladay. The $72 million receiver caught two passes for 29 yards. It matches his total for the season. He was benched for the second half of the win over Houston last week. The crowd was stunned after his first catch, and then erupted in joy when they realized No. 19 had caught a pass.
Shane Lemieux. Playing his first game since September 12, 2021, he is pressured at left guard with Ben Bredison on injured reserve and rookie Josh Izodu battling a neck injury. Lemieux sniffed on a block against Alim McNeill in the opening series, resulting in a sack. He was substituted after half-time by Ezeudu.
Rookie WR Wan’Dale Robinson lost out late in the game as he caught nine catches for 100 yards, both career highs. Daboll had no medical updates on C Jon Feliciano (neck), RT Tire Phillips (neck), CB Adoree Jackson (knee), CB Fabian Moreau (ribs) and S Jason Pinnock (jaw).
6 – The Giants have six turnovers in their three losses. They have five in seven wins.
The Giants will have to rest and rely on walks to prepare for the Cowboys. They also have to fly to Dallas. The good news is they got 10 days off before facing Washington on December 4.
