NFL Week 11 Numbers: 49ers get an ‘A+’ for win on Monday, Giants get a ‘D’ for ugly loss to Lions

For the first 10 weeks of the year, the New York Giants had a dream season, but were hit with a harsh reality check in Sunday’s surprise loss to the Detroit Lions.

The major issues that led to the Giants’ struggles in 2021 finally surfaced for the first time in 2022. turnover machine, and those were both problems during New York’s 31-18 loss.

Jones went eight weeks without interception, but that streak finally ended on Sunday when he was nicked by Aidan Hutchinson in the second quarter.

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

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

Saquon Barkley and the Giants’ running game was incredibly successful this year, so New York didn’t really have to rely on Jones, but with Barkley stopped cold on nearly every play — 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).

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

The Giants had a lot of problems on Sunday — they were hit hard with injuries, their run game was stopped and they handed out a couple of untimely penalties — so this loss wasn’t just for Jones, but given that the Giants went up against one of the worst defenses in the NFL, you should expect more from Jones and the offense as a whole.
