The Giants’ excruciating loss to Washington Thursday night left tortured fans with much to unpack, from Darius Slayton’s devastating drop to Dexter Lawrence’s late penalty flag, the latter registering as perhaps the costliest offsides since then-Chiefs pass-rusher Dee Ford jumped early in the 2018 AFC Championship.
By now, most G-Men supporters, haunted and calloused from years of horrific meltdowns made worse by inexplicable coaching decisions, are plenty familiar with the fruits of disappointment. It could also be said that one game, though admittedly magnified by the Giants’ divisional rivalry with Washington and the heightened stakes of primetime television, does not make a season. Still, it’s hard to feel much in the way of optimism when the Giants’ prized free-agent acquisition, Kenny Golladay, is already butting heads with third-year signal-caller Daniel Jones. Check out this tense sideline exchange captured by NFL Network with the game on the line in the fourth quarter.
