Make no mistake about it; the New York Giants have become the laughing stock of the NFL. After Sunday’s 23-0 shutout loss to the Seattle Seahawks dropped Big Blue to 5-9 on the season, things have officially hit rock bottom in the Big Apple.
Eli Manning tossed a career high five interceptions and New York’s No. 28 ranked offense produced just 181 total yards on the afternoon. Manning leads the NFL in interceptions with 25 for the year and turnovers continue to plague the once-Super Bowl hopeful squad. The Giants running game tallied just 25 yards on 14 carries as the Seahawks smothered the offensive backfield and gave offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride fits.
Wide receiver Victor Cruz left the game in the second half with an apparent concussion and knee sprain. The bad news and losses keep piling up for the Giants. New York takes on the high powered Detroit Lions in the Motor City next week looking to avoid its first double digit loss season since 2005.
