NFL Week 11 Ratings: Giants get ‘D’ for ugly loss to Lions, Cowboys get ‘A+’ for destroying Vikings

During the first 10 weeks of the year, the New York Giants had a dream season, but they faced a harsh reality check in Sunday’s surprising loss to the Detroit Lions.

The big issues that led to the Giants’ struggles in 2021 finally surfaced for the first time in 2022. A big reason the Giants went 4-13 last season is because their running game was non-existent and because daniel jones was a turnover machine, and these are the two problems during Lost 31-18 to New York.

Jones went eight weeks without throwing an interception, but that streak finally ended on Sunday when he was picked by Aidan Hutchinson in the second trimester.

It was one of two interceptions Jones would throw against the Lions. The Giants QB also threw out a third-quarter pick while a comeback was still possible.

When Hutchinson’s pick happened, the Giants led 6-3, but that lead melted three plays later when the Lions scored a touchdown to move up 10-6. After that, Detroit would never lag.

Saquon Barkley and the Giants’ running game has been incredibly successful this year, so New York didn’t really have to rely on Jones, but with Barkley coming to a dead stop almost every play – his longest run was four yards – the Giants were forced to turn to Jones (Barkley had just 22 yards on 15 carries against the Lions).

While Jones’ numbers weren’t bad — he went 27 of 44 for 341 yards and a TD — most of his production came in record time in the fourth quarter. The Giants haven’t had to worry about making huge comebacks this year, but after falling 24-6 in this game, it’s worth wondering if this offense is capable of playing from behind.

The Giants faced plenty of issues on Sunday – they were hit hard with injuries, their running game was cut short and they gave out a few untimely penalties – so this loss wasn’t entirely on Jones, but given that the Giants were going up against one of the worst defenses in the NFLyou should expect more from Jones and the offense as a whole.
