Yet Again, Giants Blow Fourth Quarter Lead, This Time to Patriots


Just, ugh.

Clock management. Bad plays. You saw it. Don’t make me relive it.

Let’s skip the recap and get right on to the awards.

Offensive Game Ball: WR Dwayne Harris

Harris continues to exceed expectations this year. Signed as a special teams dynamo who was expected to be sprinkled in offensively, Harris has firmly established himself as the No. 3 receiver in Victor Cruz’s absence. Against the Patriots, Harris caught 6-of-9 targets for 82 yards and a touchdown. With Rueben Randle struggling with consistency, expect Harris to remain a big part of the offensive gameplan moving forward.

Defensive Game Ball: ILB Jasper Brinkley

Brinkley continues to give the Giants a powerful presence in the middle, even with Jon Beason and Uani’ Unga out. Essentially signed off the scrap heap early in the season, Brinkley performed well yet again on Sunday, leading the team with 12 tackles (nine solo), including one tackle for loss and a sack.

The Goat: Whoever decided to pass on three straight plays inside the 5

Seriously? Did we not learn our lesson against Dallas? I know the Patriots still had one timeout left, and a touchdown essentially would have ended the game, but at the very least let try and run the clock out! That could have been the difference between what happened yesterday and the Patriots not having enough time to even attempt that field goal.

Also, the NFL. How was that Beckham catch not a catch? I understand by the rules, it was not. But why? I don’t even know what is and isn’t a catch anymore.
