The losing streak is up to five games for the New York Giants(2-7) after losing to the Cowboys at home on Monday night 37-18. Fortunately for the Giants, they have a chance to snap their losing streak when play the Jets(1-7) in the battle of New York on Sunday.
“Yeah, I can only speak for us, but we want to get this thing back on track,” Giants WR Golden Tate said on Wednesday. “Like I said a lot of the last few weeks, I feel like we do have a good team; we have great personnel. I don’t know if you guys can get a sense for this locker room, but we don’t seem down and depressed.
“I don’t feel like we’ve tanked, despite our record. I think we’re still hungry to win and I think we still feel like we have a shot to do something special. We’ve just got to get it going, and it’s going to start with us.”
When healthy, the Giants have decent personnel, especially on the offensive side of the ball, but the defense has struggled at times and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has struggled with turnovers, and quite frankly, he has played like a rookie.
No one expected the Giants to be very good this season, and therefore, no one would accuse them of tanking. But, they should beat the Jets on Sunday; however, both teams are struggling, so this game could go either way.
