Giants' defense collapses against Saints

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

What happened to the New York Giants' defense? What was supposed to be a strength this year is becoming a liability -- the Giants rank No. 27 in the NFL in points allowed and No. 28 in yards allowed. On Monday night against the Saints, they gave up 577 yards, the second most allowed in Giants history, in a 49-24 loss. New Orleans is one of the best offensive teams in the league -- it ranks No.  2 in scoring, behind only the Packers -- so that accounts for part of the problem Monday night. But the Giants' pass rush and coverage both were problems -- they rank No. 8 in sacks percentage but had no sacks Monday night, and Saints quarterback Drew Brees put up a 129.6 passer rating. That bodes poorly for their matchup this week against the Packers, who have the league's top-scoring offense and best quarterback.
