New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was shocked by his team's offensive performance in a 27-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post

The Giants managed just 12 first downs and went 2 for 14 on third-down conversions. New York punted six times in the first half alone, a stat that Coughlin said would've made him "look at you cross-eyed" if you'd told him that before the game.

Defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka called the loss to the Eagles "a humbling experience for all of us," while quarterback Eli Manning said, "Everybody on offense took a little bit of a step back." 

• Odell Beckham Jr. on Victor Cruz injury: 'I have to step up'

Wide receiver Victor Cruz, who led the team in receiving the last two years, sustained a torn patellar tendon in his right knee while attempting a touchdown catch. Cruz is reportedly out for the season

The Giants fell to 3-3 and are in third place in the NFC East. They face the Dallas Cowboys (5-1) on Sunday.
