The 12th installment of the Wide Right Podcast includes a recap of the New York Giants’ loss to the Packers and a preview of their matchup with the Eagles.
We’ve arrived at episode No. 12 of the Wide Right Podcast in what’s continuing to be a lost season for the New York Giants. This week, we begin by telling you to relax about Daniel Jones‘ injury. The rookie quarterback twisted his ankle on a fourth-down run in the recent loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Jones just has a little soreness, as the hopeful franchise quarterback should be good to practice this week and play next Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Eli Manning is “ready” if Jones somehow isn’t, but that shouldn’t be an issue at all.
Then, we touch base on the recent Giants-Packers matchup in which the Giants fell 31-13. The problems in the secondary were much of the same, as Big Blue allowed Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to throw for four touchdowns. Jones, on the other hand, threw three picks, increasing his total turnover number to 21.
New York has now lost eight straight games and hasn’t won since Sept. 29 (Week 4 win over Washington). At 2-10, they’ve solidified their third straight season without a playoff appearance. It’s also the third year in a row where the Giants have lost 10 or more games. They lost 13 and 11 in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
To wrap the episode up, we preview the upcoming “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Giants and Eagles. Philly is coming off a three-game losing streak but is still just one game back of the division-leading Dallas Cowboys. Jones will have a tough task on his hands in this one, as it’ll be his first career game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Needless to say, those fans won’t exactly be kind to him.
