The Giants’ offense was once again underwhelming in the second half.
After a slow start, which included an unfortunate Daniel Jones fumble, the Giants’ offense started rolling. They scored 20 points on four straight drives to give Big Blue a seven-point lead. They were playing well as the running and passing game seemed in sync. Uncharacteristically, they even broke off a few big plays during this period including both a Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley 21-yard run and a Darius Slayton 55-yard catch.
However, after their third-quarter touchdown, the Giants’ offense disappeared. They failed to score on five straight possessions including four punts in regulation. To make matters worse, in overtime, Big Blue started with the ball and was unable to score. Then they also failed to score on the next two drives forcing this game to end in a draw.
The offensive totals themselves were up to par as Jones notched 200 yards and a touchdown passing while he added 71 yards on the ground. And Barkley added 63 yards and a touchdown rushing.
However, the same problems remain for the Giants as their offensive line allowed four sacks and opened limited rushing lanes while their receivers continue to get limited separation.
