They had two drives in the first half that brought them inside Atlanta 15 and scored just 6 points. Their opening drive gave them first-and-goals on the 8, only to be pushed back by a sack. Their next time in the red zone, Daniel Jones let a shotgun go through his hands for a loss of 11 yards before a false start pushed them further back. They scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but 14 points against a team that had allowed an average of 40 in the first two games is awful. That their most inspiring game was a two-point conversion run, with the quarterback lowering his shoulder to push into the end zone, says as much about Jones as it does the rest of the team. Jones hit the CJ Board for a 38-yard win on the opening drive, but had no other game longer than 19 for the rest of the game
Every point the Falcons scored on Sunday came within the final 4:13 of each half, 10 of which scored inside the final 1:33. The Giants gave up a 44-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter that took just 36 seconds to complete, allowing the Falcons to win 55 yards on the first three games of their last possession to put them in field goal area almost immediately after receiving the point. . Logan Ryan and Adoree ‘Jackson missed wiretaps, Ryan missed an important tackle and was marked for pass interference, and rookie Rodarius Williams missed a tackle on a screen to Cordarrelle Patterson triggering the game-winning drive. A bright spot: Azeez Ojulari had a sack for the third game in a row, making him the first NFL player with at least one sack in each of his first three career games since Cleveland’s Myles Garrett in 2017.
SPECIAL TEAMS: C
Riley Dixon did a good job of putting points in the 20s (he did it twice, once with the help of Keion Crossen who tipped the ball away from the goal line), but when the Giants most needed to pinch Falke by 1 : 50 left, he sailed it into the final zone for a touchback. The Jabrill Peppers had two punt rebounds on 36 yards, but the Falcons dropped three of their punts inside 20. Graham Gano extended his range of consecutive field goals to 37 with two kicks from 25 and 31.
The two timeouts that the Giants burned early in the second half would have been very handy as the Falcons in the last minute watched the game basically seep away before kicking the battle-winning field goal. Joe Judge threw his first official challenge flag of the season (he threw an illegal one in the opening) and just the second in his career tried to change an incompleteness from the Falcons into a catch and a fumble. It did not work. The offensive play-calling was unable with the loss of Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton to early injuries. Now they have to try to construct a schedule that contains Kadarius Toney rather than sprinkle him in. Defensively, the Giants have to figure out what their problem is in the last two minutes’ halves.
