NFL Week 11 ratings: 49ers get ‘A+’ for Monday’s blowout win, Giants get ‘D’ for ugly loss to Lions

Through the first 10 weeks of the year, the New York Giants were having a dream season, but they were hit with a harsh reality during Sunday’s shock loss to the Detroit Lions.

The big issues that led to the Giants’ struggles in 2021 finally reared their ugly heads for the first time in 2022. A big reason the Giants went 4-13 last season is because their running game was nonexistent and because Daniel Jones he was a turnover machine, and both were problems during New York’s 31-18 loss.

Jones went eight weeks without throwing an interception, but that streak finally ended Sunday when Aidan Hutchinson picked him off in the second quarter.

That was one of two interceptions Jones would throw against the Lions. The Giants quarterback also threw an interception in the third quarter when a comeback was still possible.

When Hutchinson’s pick happened, the Giants led 6-3, but that lead vanished three plays later when the Lions scored a touchdown to go up 10-6. After that, Detroit would never be far behind.

The running game of Saquon Barkley and the Giants has been incredibly successful this year, so New York hasn’t really had to rely on Jones, but with Barkley being stopped in his tracks on nearly every snap (his longest run was four yards), the Giants were forced to turn to Jones (Barkley only had 22 yards on 15 carries against the Lions).

Although Jones’ numbers weren’t bad — he finished 27-of-44 passing for 341 yards and a touchdown — most of his production came in the fourth quarter. The Giants haven’t had to worry about making big comebacks this year, but after falling behind 24-6 in this game, it’s worth wondering if this offense is capable of playing from behind.

The Giants dealt with a lot of issues on Sunday — they were hit hard by injuries, their run game was shut down, and they dished out some untimely penalties — so this loss wasn’t just Jones’ fault, but considering the Giants were going up against one of For the worst defenses in the NFL, you should expect more from Jones and the offense in general.
