The New York Giants have not looked impressive to start the 2017 season.
Eli Manning & Co. fell 24-10 to the Detroit Lions on Monday, one week after losing 19-3 to the Dallas Cowboys. It marks the first time in franchise history that the Giants have lost their first two games by 14 or more points. No team has won a Super Bowl after such a start, and only two of 32 to do that under the current playoff format (since 1990) even bounced back and made the playoffs.
Coach Ben McAdoo called out Manning for "sloppy quarterback play" during a key moment of Monday's game.The veteran quarterback took a good chunk of the fall for the Giants' struggles in his postgame comments.
Of course, there aremore issues than just Manning. Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is still dealing with an ankle injury and wasn't 100 percent against Detroit. New York's offensive line hasn't exactly been stellar. And it's times like these when coaching can come into question.
What's the largest contributor to the Giants' woes? And will New York get it together and make the playoffs? Cast your vote:
