The New York Giants Lose and the NFC East Race Gets Tighter
With this loss, the Giants are only leading the NFC East by only a single game and will make the last four games absolutely critical for them. They also lost reserve lineman Sean Locklear likely for the season as he was carted off with a knee injury as coach Tom Coughlin just mentioned in the press conference.
One of the biggest reasons why they lost this game was when Lawrence Tynes missed a 43-yard field goal in the second quarter. Another reason was simply they couldn’t stop Robert Griffin III as bounces seemingly went his way tonight, especially on that fumble that magically landed in Josh Morgan‘s hands and was ran in for a touchdown.
It also seemed like they had no sense of urgency late in the game. I think the Giants out-thought themselves tonight, with having their trademark long drawn out drives that keep opposing offenses off the field, it’s usually a fairly sound strategy, but it’s not always as effective when you are trailing and then your offense begins to stall out.
I think the final four games could be a bit adventitious as they have a home game versus the New Orleans Saints then two challenging road games at the Atlanta Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens then finish up the season back at home versus the Philadelphia Eagles but this is just my take, what do you all think? Let me know!
