Giants’ defense continues allowing points at blistering pace

Through five weeks of the season, the Giants had allowed an NFL-high 182 points. In the first half of Week Six, the Giants allowed even more scoring than usual.

In addition to a Tim Jennings pick-six courtesy of Eli Manning, the Bears got two touchdowns from Brandon Marshall and a field goal from Robbie Gould in the first half, taking a 24-14 lead into the locker room.

If the Bears score six points or more in the second half, the Giants will become the first team in NFL history to give up 30 points or more in each of their first six games of the season.

Once Manning stopped throwing interceptions, he actually played pretty well, and the Giants have been playing competitive football. But they’re going to have to be better on both sides of the ball in the second half to come from behind in Chicago.

    Note to the GIANTS defense,,, a receiver on the other team that is the only one wearing a pair of lime green shoes there is a good chance his team has set a game plan around him so he does not look like a fool you might want to cover him !

    Good game so far…I hope Brandon Marshall continues to feel ‘frustrated.’

    Gees, the Giants are terrible. Weren’t the Jets supposed to be this bad? Problem for them unlike a team like the Saints last year, what’s the fix? Maybe there isn’t one and this needs to be blown up.

    Just when Jacksonville thought they had the first pick in the 2014 draft, now they have to compete against the G-men.

    Curse of Mark Sanchez!

    Giants ended his season, so he summoned his inner Nacho Libre to end theirs.

    Aaron Hernandez might actually have a better defense than the Giants…

    Does the NFL Network not have someone better in their cavalcade of broadcasters that can do a better job than Mike Mayock?! He’s almost as unintelligible as Shannon Sharpe and nearly as dumb.

    It’s a battle of the terrible defenses!

    Saints fans suddenly feel better about last year. All we did was give up record yardage.
