Giants had an opportunity at a game-winning drive, taking possession at their
own 19-yard line with 4:10 to play. The drive ended when an Eli Manning pass on
fourth-and-6 at the Jaguars’ 36-yard line fell incomplete.“It’s disappointing
when you lose. The one good thing is our team fought from the front to the back.
They fought all the way through the game. Unfortunately as is the case in a lot
of these games that are close, we just didn’t make enough plays in the end to
win the game,” coach Pat Shurmur said afterwards. “It’s unfortunate we lost,
we’re disappointed because we lost but we’ve got to move on and regroup and get
ready to play Dallas.Moments that matteredSaquon Barkley goes offThe Giants

feeling lasted a whole two plays before Saquon Barkley blew the metaphorical

Ellison, more Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let’s see what’s happening
with your favorite team today.Engram: Low hits “part of the game”Evan Engram
suffered a sprained MCL that will keep him out of action for the next few weeks
on a play where a Houston Texans defender tackled him by diving at his
legs.“I’ve always been the type of guy I’d rather defenders go high rather than
low, but it’s a part of the game. It’s hard to kind of control your body. If you
can kind of see it coming, you can lower your shoulder or adjust. It’s the times
when you don’t see them coming, or they’re coming from the side, or coming off
of a block or something Eli

,” Engram said. “So, it’s definitely tough, but
there’s things that it’s hard for us to do on the offensive side of the ball and
there’s things that are hard for them on their side of the ball. It’s a part of
the game, especially with the new rules and stuff. A lot of defenders are
changing things up. I don’t have any ill feeling towards that style. I’d rather
guys go high, definitely, but I know it’s a part of the game.”Mailbag

week Giants coach Pat Shurmur compared tight end Rhett Ellison to legendary
Giants tight end Mark Bavaro. Ellison said Wednesday he saw that as “mostly a
mentality thing.”Told jokingly that Shurmur was going to break out the film of
Bavaro carrying 10 San Francisco 49ers defenders down the field, Ellison
said:“One of which was my dad [Riki]. So, I’m sure my dad is not happy about
this comparison.”Shula: Offense “good enough to win” vs. TexansOffensive
coordinator Mike Shula said Thursday he saw good things Sunday vs. the Houston
Texans, but that the offense still needs to get better.“Overall offensively,
including the offensive line, I think we played more consistently last week.
Still made some mistakes, have to continue to improve on our communication,”
Shula said. “That’s probably one of the biggest areas of improvement we need to
continue with, but there was some good. Good enough to win, but there were some
other things that we have to get better at.’ Around the Inter-GoogleGiants know
