The New York Giants 2017 season hit a new low as they were blown out at home by the Los Angeles Rams, 51-17.

The score doesn’t even begin to justify how thoroughly outclassed the Giants were on Sunday. The Giants were pathetic in all three phases on the game and worst yet they looked like a team that quit.

Many fans began to leave in the third quarter when the Rams went up 41-10, as they saw the Giants had no fight in them.

The 51 points the defense gave up was the most the Giants have allowed at home since 1964. They gave up five passing plays of 30 yards or more, including a third-and-33 from the Rams 48-yard line that resulted in a 52-yard touchdown reception by Robert Woods on a screen pass in the second quarter.

The Rams would score again on their next possession, a 67-yard touchdown reception by Sammy Watkins.

The Giants pass rush was non-existent the entire game. Not only did they not sack Jared Goff, but he had all day to throw. That’s why he finished the game completing 14-of=22 pass for 311 yards, four touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 146.8.

The offense turned the ball over three times, and Eli Manning overthrew Sterling Shepard on a deep post route that would have resulted in a touchdown in the second quarter. Manning actually misfired on several passes on the day that could have extended drives.

Eli finished the game completing 20-of-36 passes for 220 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, and became only the seventh quarterback in NFL history to throw for 50,000 yards. But his performance was subpar at best.

The special teams were just as bad as the offense and defense. Brad Wing had a punt blocked, and Aldrick Rosas missed on a 45-yard field goal attempt.

When you lose in all three phases of the game you have no chance of being able to compete let alone winning. That’s why the final score was what it was.

The Giants are now 1-7 and essentially mathematically eliminated from the playoffs since they have six conference losses. Even if they would do the impossible and win their remaining eight games and finish the year 9-7, their conference record would have them lose all tie-breaker scenarios.

After a game and year like this, major changes will be coming once the season is over which could mean a new GM, head coach, and quarterback. The 2017 season will be one that Giants fans will want to forget.
