The New York Giants have fallen to 4-10 on the season after Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. New York has once again been swept by their division rivals after they lost their first matchup with the Cowboys in Week Five. The Cowboys topped the Giants today with a score of 21-6.
The New York Giants’ offense was abysmal today, once again. They failed to score a touchdown and benched their backup quarterback, Mike Glennon, for the second-year Jake Fromm toward the end of the fourth quarter. Glennon struggled all game and failed to move the Giants’ offense downfield.
Going forward, Jake Fromm looks like the better fill-in quarterback candidate. The former Buffalo Bills backup was composed in the pocket and threw with accuracy, outplaying Mike Glennon. Glennon threw for 99 yards (13/24) and 3 interceptions through three and a half quarters. Jake Fromm was able to total 82 yards on 6 completions and 0 turnovers in less than half of a quarter.
The Giants defense played well, holding the Cowboys to only 21 points (two touchdowns). But, ultimately, the Giants’ offense was unable to capitalize on any good field positioning or turnovers created by their defense.
The Giants lost the turnover battle 4-1. Glennon threw three interceptions and Saquon Barkley lost the first fumble of his career today. The 2021 NFL season is drawing to a close, and today’s loss pushes the Giants closer to the top of the draft board. If the season ended today, New York would own the fifth overall pick. The Giants appear set to own two top-ten picks with the Chicago Bears currently sitting at 4-9. This could help make the Giants a more attractive destination for potential general manager candidates.
