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.
Giants offensive tackle Justin Pugh apologized to fans on Twitter Monday for his performance:
Definitely owe everyone an apology for how I played yesterday. I'm going to fight my ass off and will be better. Back to work.— Justin Pugh (@JustinPugh) October 13, 2014
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.
