Articles on the Giants-Jaguars Game:

Notes: The Giants’ seven-game losing streak is their longest since they lost eight in a row in 2004. The 3-9 record is their worst after 12 games since 1995. The Giants will have consecutive losing seasons for the first time since 2003 and 2004, when they were 4-12 and 6-10.

The Giants have lost their last three games in which they led at the half – 17-14 at Seattle (where they lost, 38-17), 21-10 last week vs. Dallas (lost, 31-28), and at Jacksonville. Prior to this streak, they had won nine consecutive games in which they held a halftime lead. The Giants also lost the game against Arizona on September 14 when they led 14-10 at the end of the 3rd quarter and lost 25-14.

The Giants led in the fourth quarter, 21-16, and again at 24-22. It was the second game in a row they didn’t hold a fourth-quarter lead. Last week vs. Dallas, they took a 28-24 lead before losing, 31-28.

This was the third time the Giants held a 21-point lead and lost in Tom Coughlin’s 11 years as head coach. On November 26, 2006 at Tennessee, they led 21-0 in the fourth quarter but lost, 24-21. On December 19, 2010 in MetLife Stadium, they led Philadelphia, 24-3 and 31-10, but lost 38-31.
