Giants almost shocker falls short 14-9

Like so many things Giants over the last few season they fell just short of a great result on Sunday night. Leading until 3:48 left in the fourth quarter against a team they were supposed to be pummelled by had all Giants fans hoping.

Without starting QB Daniel Jones, and with the Bills having one of the more explosive offences in the NFL, this was supposed to be a very lopsided contest. But the Giants defence turned up in big way, holding Josh Allen to 169 yards, and holding the Bills scoreless until the fourth quarter.

The problem for the Giants was that they couldn’t score. Leading just 6-0 by the time the Bills finally found the end zone. Saquon Barkley was back on the field and his 24 for 93 was the highlight for the Giants, and maybe if not for his most recent injury NY would have ridden him harder on a night where they needed to.


But still the Giants had a chance to win the game. 1st and goal on the one yard line in an untimed play to end the game. But it was another Tyrod Taylor incompletion. So close on a night that could’ve been a season changer for NY. Instead it was more of the same.

HC Brian Daboll summed up the Giants ineptitude in the red zone after the game, “It came down to 1 yard and just missed it. We got it down there four times and we didn’t put it in. That’s really the difference in the game, not being able to punch it in the end zone.”
