Anemic Giants Fall to Dolphins 20-9

The Giants fail to generate touchdown as New York's ship continues to sink.

Jones was stopped short of pay dirt, but in lowering his head to push forward, he took the hit that left him wobbly and unable to walk off the field under his own power. Jones was carted off the field for evaluation of a head injury.

On the ensuing play, backup quarterback Mike Glennon, now under center, handed the ball off to running back Devontae Booker, who was in for Saquon Barkley, injured earlier in the game. Booker recorded the game-tying touchdown to knot the game up 10-10 with 2:541 left in the second quarter.

The Giants were also without starting left tackle Andrew Thomas, who, although active for the game despite being limited all week with a foot injury that left him limping noticeably, was kept on the sideline.

They also were missing receivers Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton, who missed their second straight game with hamstring strains.
