NFL Week 11 Grades: Giants Get ‘D’ For Ugly Loss To Lions, Cowboys Get ‘A+’ For Destroying Vikings

In the first 10 weeks of the year, the New York Giants It was a dream season, but they suffered a harsh reality check during Sunday’s surprise defeat Detroit Lions.

The big problems that led to the Giants’ struggles in 2021 finally reared their ugly head for the first time in 2022. A big reason why the Giants went 4-13 last season was their lack of a running game and Daniel Jones as a turnover engine, and both of those problems while New York lost 31-18.

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

It was one of two interceptions Jones would throw against the Lions. The Giants QB also threw a pick in the third quarter when there was a potential comeback.

The Giants led 6–3 when Hutchinson’s pick happened, but that lead melted away three plays later when the Lions scored a touchdown to make it 10–6. After that, Detroit never trailed.

Saquon Barkley and the Giants running game have been incredibly successful this year, so New York didn’t really have to rely on Jones, but Barkley went cold on nearly every play — his longest run was four yards — forcing the Giants to turn to Jones (Barkley totaled 22 on 15 carries against the Lions gained only yards).

While Jones’ numbers weren’t bad — he finished 27 of 44 for 341 yards and a TD — most of his production came in garbage time in the fourth quarter. The Giants don’t have to worry about making any big comebacks this year, but after falling behind 24-6 in this game, it’s questionable whether the offense is capable of coming from behind.

The Giants dealt with a lot of issues Sunday — they were hit hard by injuries, their run game was shut down and they dealt with some untimely penalties — so the loss wasn’t for Jones, but considering the Giants are going up against one of the worst defenses in the NFL, you get more from Jones and the offense as a whole. to be expected.
