New York Giants Suffer Humiliating Defeat by Detroit Lions
The bigger they are, the harder they fall. The Giants won 11 games last season, and expectations were high that they’d be playoff contenders this year. But last night quarterback Eli Manning was sacked five times, and a series of avoidable mistakes saw the Giants topple dramatically, finally losing 24-10. Head coach Ben McAdoo attributed the loss to “sloppy quarterback play,” adding insult to injury for 36-year-old Manning — who will likely be blamed for the Giants’ decline as he approaches old age in quarterback years.
