New York Giants wideout Golden Tate apologizes to the team’s fanbase after 34-27 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.

Frustrations are mounting for the New York Giants and their fans. On Sunday, the team succumbed to a 34-27 loss to their crosstown rivals, the New York Jets. The Giants have now dropped their previous six games and find themselves as the third-worst team in the league.

It was tough to lose five straight, but now Big Blue has essentially hit a low point. The Jets were 1-7 heading into this game, coming off a loss to a once-winless Miami Dolphins team.

After the defeat, wideout Golden Tate took it upon himself to apologize to the team’s fanbase.

“Well, first, I’m going to apologize to the Giants pride because I know how important this game is,” the 10-year pro said. “I know we were expecting to come out and get a big-time win against the other New York team, but we didn’t…just be patient and try to trust the process. Just know the people inside the building are working. We still believe we can win. We just got to go out there and do it.”

Tate caught four balls on eight targets for 95 yards and two touchdowns. Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones matched his career-high with four touchdowns on the day, with the other two falling into the hands of rookie wideout Darius Slayton.

This now marks the second consecutive time the Giants have lost a regular-season game to the Jets. The last time these two teams met was in 2015 when the Jets ousted Big Blue 23-20 in overtime.

After playing in the first 10 weeks of the season, the Giants finally have their bye week coming up. After that, they’ll travel to Chicago to take on the Bears in Week 12.
