The New York Giants fell to 1-5 on Sunday with a lopsided 38-11 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at MetLife Stadium. The Giants have now started 1-5 four of the past five seasons. The Rams are 5-1.
Under heavy pressure consistently, Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones had two strip-sack fumbles, losing one, and threw two first-half interceptions. Two of the Rams’s second-quarter touchdowns came on drives 12 and 14 yards after Giants’ turnovers.
“Obviously it wasn’t good enough today,” said head coach Joe Judge.
Daniel Jones was absolutely bad, completing 29-of-51 passes for 242 yards and throwing three interceptions. He entered the game without receiver Kenny Golladay and running back Saquon Barkley and he lost electric rookie Kadarius Toney on the first series. Also, his offensive line offered him very little support.
The Giants defense wasn’t any better either. But after a brief flash of a pass rush, they barely bothered Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford who became the latest to pick apart the Giants’ crumbling secondary. He ended up completing 22-of-28 passes for 251 yards and four touchdowns.
