The New York Giants got blown out by the Carolina Panthers 38-0 on Sunday afternoon. This was the worst loss of head coach Tom Coughlin’s ten year career with the Giants. The entire team looked off in this game, especially the Giants’ offense. The offensive line allowed seven QB sacks, six of them coming in the first half of the game. On the defensive side of the ball, the Giants only got one sack in the entire game. They allowed Carolina Quarterback Cam Newton to throw for three touchdown passes and rush for one touchdown himself. The Panthers’ ground attack looked nearly unstoppable as they put up nearly 200 yards rushing. The Carolina defense did not allow any points and the defensive line got to the Quarterback at will.
The Giants have gotten off to a rough start to the 2013-14 season. After three games, they have failed to win even one. Many critics are saying they are arguably the most disappointing team this season. If the offensive line continues to allow their Quarterback to take an excessive number of hits like they did on Sunday, Eli Manning will not make it through the entire season. The defense also needs to get to the Quarterback like they have done so well in previous seasons. This will create more turnovers and get the offense more possessions and better field position. Although the Giants have had a rough start this year, they still have plenty of time to get themselves together. With the superior leadership of head coach Tom Coughlin, I would not count the New York Giants out of the playoff hunt just yet.
