When it rains, it pours. And on Sunday, it was definitely a torrential mess at MetLife Stadium when the New York Giants dropped their third straight game, falling to the Arizona Cardinals, 27-21, in a downpour.
Despite how poorly they played, the Giants were in this game the entire way. Yet they continued to throw away opportunities and allowed the Cardinals to walk out of New Jersey with their third straight victory.
So now at 2-5, the Giants have a lot of questions to answer as they will take their show on the road next Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
Following their latest loss of the season, whose stock is up and down from the Giants?
Getting Barkley back was a really good thing for the offense, and it felt like at times, it was the only good thing that came from Sunday’s game.
After an injury that was supposed to keep him out for two months, Barkley returned to the field after missing three games and had a decent performance with 18 carries for 72 yards and a touchdown.
It wasn’t the typical game we are accustomed to seeing from Barkley where it’s over 100-plus yards, but Barkley was supposed to miss months, and yet, he was only out a few weeks. And in his return, he didn’t suffer any major injuries or any setbacks.
Sunday’s game might have been the worst of Remmers’ tenure with the Giants. It was not pretty at all.
Chandler Jones flat-out abused, pushed around and had his way with Remmers the entire game and had 3.5 of the eight sacks that the Giants offensive line surrendered on Daniel Jones.
Granted, Jones is one of the top pass rushers in the game and Remmers probably could have used some help, but even so, Remmers is still a veteran who up to this point, hadn’t been an issue.
On Sunday, his play was an issue because Danny Dimes was getting clobbered as a result of Remmers being unable to protect him.
