Battered and bruised, the Giants came into Buffalo tonight heavy underdogs against the Bills. But despite the offensive line being decimated and Daniel Jones sidelined with a neck injury, the Giants were in this one to the end, something they haven’t been able to say recently.
The Giants were down so bad that they had to sign a guy off of his couch to play in front of backup Tyrod Taylor tonight. Justin Pugh hadn’t played all season and was signed earlier this month by the Giants.
Still, the Giants fought. They fought all the way to the game’s final play on an untimed down and were a fingertip away from upsetting the Buffalo Bills. Darren Waller had the game-winner in his fingertips, but Bills cornerback Taron Johnson was able to close the deal for the Bills, who escaped with a win tonight.
Tyrod Taylor was the best quarterback on the field tonight, outplaying the normally superior Josh Allen, but his efforts still couldn’t get the Giants back into the win column.
For the Bills, they’ve now strung together back-to-back clunkers after looking like world-beaters for three weeks. Buffalo remains an incredibly talented but wildly inconsistent team.
Josh Allen said after the game that these ugly wins count the same as the pretty ones. And they do. Except when they turn into a loss, which is how their season has ended for years despite Super Bowl aspirations and expectations.
The Giants fall to 1-5 on the season, and they haven’t scored an offensive touchdown since the first half against the 49ers a few weeks ago as their offensive struggles continue.
Bills running back Damien Harris was down and motionless on the field after a collision with New York Giants linebacker Bobby Okereke during the second quarter of tonight’s game.
Harris was placed on a backboard and stabilized before being placed on a stretcherand taken from the field by ambulance.
Fortunately, Harris was seen giving teammates a thumbs up as he was loaded into the ambulance on the field. According to multiple reports, Damien Harris suffered a neck injury but has movement in his arms and legs. Harris is being transported to a local hospital for further treatment and evaluation.
