The Giants have lost seven straight games, matching their longest losing streak since 2014. The team is doing its best to stay positive.
“There’s a lot to learn and a lot to improve on,” said Daniel Jones, who threw two touchdowns against the Bears on Sunday. “We have the right guys and I think the way we’ve responded to [the losing streak] has been the right way.” The quarterback is now 2-7 in his first nine starts.
Saquon Barkley struggled again in Chicago, amassing 59 yards on 17 carries. The second-year running back didn’t run from the truth when he said, “You are what your record says you are… We understand that we’ve been in a lot of tough, close games this year, and we’ve just been inconsistent all around in all phases of the game. We’re not as far as everyone thinks.”
