CHICAGO BEARS 17 – NEW YORK GIANTS 13…
The New York Giants battled back from a 17-0 first-half deficit against the Chicago Bears and almost stole the game late, being stopped 10 yards short from the go-head touchdown. The Giants lost 17-13 to the Bears and fell to 0-2 on the season. Worse for the Giants, running back Saquon Barkley may have suffered a very serious injury to his right knee. The NFL Network is reporting that Barkley suffered an ACL tear, ending his season. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard was also forced from the game with a toe injury.

The Bears received the ball to start the game and immediately drove 82 yards in 12 plays to take a 7-0 early lead on quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s 28-yard touchdown pass to running back David Montgomery. Chicago converted on four 3rd-down attempts on the drive including on 3rd-and-7 on the touchdown. Matters got immediately worse for the Giants when quarterback Daniel Jones was sacked and stripped of the football on 3rd-and-6 on the ensuing drive, setting up the Bears at the Giants’ 20-yard line. Chicago could not pick up a first down but went up 10-0 on the 34-yard field goal.

The Giants went three-and-out on their second drive. After a Chicago punt, the Giants drove to the Bears’ 28-yard line, but on 3rd-and-8, Jones threw an interception to halt the scoring threat. It was on this drive, on the first play of the 2nd quarter, when Barkley was hurt.

Both teams exchanged punts and the Bears took a commanding 17-0 lead on their final possession of the half by driving 80 yards in 11 plays, with Trubisky throwing a 15-yard touchdown on 3rd-and-8. With 14 seconds left, the Giants did gain 36 yards on two plays to set up a last-second 57-yard field goal attempt, but the kick failed.  The Giants gained only seven first downs and no points in the first half.

The Giants received the ball to start the 3rd quarter, picked up one first down, but were then forced to punt again. However, two plays later, cornerback James Bradberry tipped a pass that was intercepted by safety Julian Love and returned to the Chicago 25-yard line. New York had to settle for a 39-yard field goal as the Giants could not pick up even one first down. Bears 17 – Giants 3.

The Bears moved the ball 33 yards on their second possession of the half, but were forced to punt, pinning New York at the 5-yard line. However, the Giants responded with an impressive 11-play, 95-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown run on 4th-and-goal by running back Dion Lewis early in the 4th quarter. Bears 17 – Giants 10.

The Giants got the ball back again with Bradberry picked off a deep sideline pass at the New York 34-yard line. The Giants were able to drive 47 yards in 10 plays to set up a 37-yard field goal to cut the score to 17-13. Fortunately for the Giants and Jones, a 54-yard pick-6 interception was erased by a defensive pass interference penalty on this possession.

With 7:43 left in the game, the Bears were able to drive 44 yards in 12 plays to take off 5:41 from the clock and set up a 50-yard field goal. However, the Bears missed the kick. Frustratingly for New York, Chicago was able to pick up a key 1st down on 4th-and-2 when a pass deflected by the Giants was caught for a 1st down by a Chicago offensive lineman.

Nevertheless, with 2:02 left in the game, New York had the ball at their own 40-yard line, down 17-13.  Jones threw a 22-yard pass to tight end Evan Engram on 3rd-and-10. Then on 4th-and-4, he connected with Lewis for six yards to keep the drive alive at the Chicago 26-yard line with just over half a minute to play. On 4th-and-1, Jones threw a 3-yard pass to wide receiver Darius Slayton. After Jones spiked the ball to stop the clock, New York was facing a 2nd-and-10 at the Chicago 14-yard line with eight seconds left in the game. Jones threw a 4-yard pass to Lewis. With four seconds left, Jones’ pass intended for wide receiver  Golden Tate fell incomplete as Tate was flagged with offensive pass interference. Game over.

Offensively, the Giants gained 295 yards (75 yards rushing, 220 yards passing). The team only held the football for 25:31. The Giants were 3-of-13 (23 percent) on 3rd down and 3-of-3 on 4th down. Jones completed 25-of-40 passes for 241 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception. He also was sacked four times and fumbled the ball away once. The leading receiver was Engram with six catches for 65 yards. Barkley was the leading rusher with 28 yards on four carries.

Defensively, the Giants allowed 304 yards (135 yards rushing, 169 yards passing), controlling the ball for 34:29. The Bears were 9-of-16 (56 percent) on 3rd down and 1-of-1 on 4th down. The defense picked off two passes (Love and Bradberry) and garnered four sacks (defensive lineman B.J. Hill and linebackers Blake Martinez, Lorenzo Carter, and Kyler Fackrell).

SEPTEMBER 15, 2020 JOE JUDGE PRESS CONFERENCE…
New York Giants Head Coach Joe Judge addressed the media on Tuesday to discuss his team’s 26-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers (the video is also available on Giants.com):

Q: I’m curious after going back and watching the tape last night, how you thought the offensive line held up? How close or far away you are from where you need to be there?

A: First off, I’m really pleased with how they played as a unit together. It was the first time they got to go into a competitive situation against a foreign opponent, so obviously, a lot of different looks, both in individuals with the personnel as well as collectively as a scheme. I thought throughout the night they did make some necessary adjustments. We’ll make a lot of improvement going forward, but I’m pleased with the way they competed and the way Marc (Colombo) made some adjustments in the game.

Q: What did you think about how Cam Fleming played yesterday at right tackle first time in there for you guys?

A: I thought Cam fought his butt off last night. Obviously, he went up against one of the best players in the National Football League with T.J. Watt, and he did a good job overall. Obviously, there’s a play or two that you always have to go back on, how can we correct it going forward? But I’m very pleased with what Cam did for us.

Q: How much tolerance do you have for top skill players like Saquon Barkley or Evan Engram dropping passes, making mistakes? These are guys that are going to carry your team. Obviously, it’s early and you guys had a shortened camp. How do you balance that evaluating their Week 1 performances?

A: Everyone has to play better, so we have to keep the emphasis on the fundamentals, number one. I talked the other day about these first four weeks kind of being an extension of the preseason. I think we saw some of that last night in terms of the timing and the feel of being on the field collectively together. The simulated scrimmages, the reality is they can’t simulate a game against an opponent. We have to go ahead and learn from last night, we need to get up to the speed of the game, and we have to make a lot of gains going forward. But to me, the emphasis has to stay on the fundamentals, and that should bridge the gap from what we see every day in practice and how it carries over to the game.

Q: I have two questions about the first drive. When you had the fourth and one from the 40, why not just go for it there?

A: We didn’t think it was the right time in the game right there. We had an option to go for it or not. We’re going to put faith on our defense there. We figured we’d punt the ball down there, which obviously worked out. It was after the delayed penalty right there. That wasn’t the time of the game to do it.

Q: When you have fourth and goal on the two, did you have any thoughts on going for it there or you’re kicking that no doubt?

A: You know what, we had three swings of the bat already down there in the low red area. At that point, we wanted to come away with some points. Pittsburgh’s a team you can’t just go on down there and come away with no points, which obviously happened later in the game. At that point right there, in this specific game, we wanted to make sure we got on the board.

Q: I just wanted to ask you about Andrew Thomas after going back and watching the film. What did you see from your rookie left tackle? What stood out as far as the first performance?

A: I think he showed he has a lot of ability in this league, and there’s a reason he’s here. He fought really hard. I think he played well overall. He learned a lot of valuable lessons going against a top opponent like Bud Dupree. That’s something you can’t simulate. I don’t care who you have on your defensive front, he’s just different from guys you may have. He plays with a distinct motor. He’s a tough competitor. You have to have a lot of respect for him. For Andrew to have his first NFL competition in a game against a guy like that, that says a lot for how he was able to hold up throughout the game.

Q: Just one follow-up. I assume when you talked to Daniel (Jones) about the second interception, did he tell you if he was trying to throw the ball out of the end zone? Did he see a receiver he was trying to throw the ball to? Obviously, we’ll have a chance to ask him that as a follow-up when we talk to him next, but I’m just curious what you guys talked about on that play?

A: To be honest with you, I talked to him briefly in the locker room after the game but it wasn’t directly about any specific play. It was just in general about how he came out of the game, how he was doing. Then it’s the players’ day off today. These guys will be working out. We don’t have players’ meetings with them until tomorrow. I haven’t had the opportunity to have that conversation. Obviously, there are things we have to clean up with the decision-making. But I can tell you right now, I think that guy stood in the pocket with a lot of courage last night, delivered a lot of really good balls for us, really controlled the flow of the game, did a heck of a job under pressure. I’m very pleased with the way Daniel played last night. I know the rest of the team feels very confident with him in there calling the signals for us. There are obviously a couple of plays that we’re going to have to correct and move on from. But man, I’ll tell you what, we woke up this morning and I’m glad that he’s on our team.

Q: If you were playing the Giants, you would no doubt want to be stopping Saquon Barkley. Mike Tomlin took that strategy last night. I’m sure Matt Nagy is going to have the same one next week. How do you get around that? Is it playing better, or are there scheme ways that you can allow him to be productive?

A: Saquon played hard last night. Collectively, we have to do a better job coaching, putting our players in the right positions, and we have to do a better job executing the techniques and the schemes we have in the game plan. It’s a collective effort. No one person can do better for all of us to have success.

Q: Did anything feel different being a head coach last night? Going through the process, walking on and off the field?

A: There were definitely some differences last night. Obviously, I think I’ve grown accustomed to a lot of that stuff throughout just being at practice and scrimmages and handling a lot of the different phases. There’s a difference in-game. It was the first game that I haven’t had a specific position group or group of guys to actually get out there on the field. To be honest with you, one of the weirdest things was not having that clock in my head of ‘I have to be out there on the field at a certain time.’ Obviously, I want to be out there as early as possible to watch warmups, see how the guys are doing, see how they’re moving around, get a feel for their energy. But there’s obviously some differences in there. I didn’t feel weird about anything. It was just a little bit of a change.

Q: Win or lose, this is going to be your first day after. Sunday, Monday, whatever it is, Tuesday. When you look at it, how are you going to balance between breaking the team down and criticizing them when they perform badly, building them back up, encouragement versus laying down the law? Are you going to publicly criticize players, because you really have not done that much or at all?

A: To be honest with you, I think it’s my job to support the players. I think it’s our job internally to make corrections and adjustments that are necessary. But I don’t think you’re going to see too much different from me than you’ve seen already, if that kind of paints a little bit of a picture for you. I kind of am who I am every day. But internally, we’ll address things always. We’re going to be very blunt and honest. We’re very transparent in this organization, and we’ll always be very direct with what we have to do to correct it. That being said, I’d say on a weekly basis, that will always be a little different. Sometimes a team needs some encouraging, sometimes they need a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting. Whatever each week calls for, that’s what we’re going to go ahead and have. I think that no matter what tone you do it in, it’s always about teaching. Players don’t go out there and intentionally make mistakes. They don’t go out there and intentionally screw up. Whatever tone it requires to get the message across, we better be teaching them so that when they leave that meeting, it’s clear in how they have to improve and what they have to correct going forward. That to me is the emphasis for myself and every coach on this staff.

Q: Following that question up, is this week a teaching meeting or is it one that ‘hey guys, it’s only one game. Let’s just play better next week’?

A: That’s classified. I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you (laughing). It’ll be heavy teaching. Again, there are going to be unique situations with the individuals as well as the team collectively. Our guys competed their butts off last night. They played hard. What they need is, we need to make sure that we eliminate some mistakes and we understand going forward the formula for us to be able to win games, and that’s what we’re focused on right now.

Q: What’s impressed you the most about Darius Slayton since you got your hands on him? What impressed you particularly about how he played last night because he obviously had a big night?

A: I think he played fast last night, and that’s definitely something that’s kind of one of those ‘yeah Joe we got that, he’s a fast guy.’ But there’s a difference between being a fast guy and playing fast, and he plays fast. He comes off the ball fast, he makes decisions fast, he cuts fast, he plays aggressive in traffic to make the catches. That to me is something you can’t replicate. There’s a lot of people out there that can run a 40 at a good time. Then there are people that play fast as well. That’s something that definitely stands out with him. He was able to have a lot of production for us last night. That was something that helped us within the game. We’re going to need that going forward from him. Then we need some other guys as well to make sure we keep them involved.

Q: Just want to circle back to the offensive line real quick. I know you tried to be positive with them. I’m wondering the issues that you had with protection and blocking last night, how much of that do you attribute to the lack of chemistry from not having a normal preseason? Also if you don’t mind, what were your thoughts on Nick Gates in his first game as a center?

A: I think Nick Gates overall handled himself pretty well. Again, there are always things that you have to improve on. We’re going to look at the tape, we’re going to be very critical about that. But I’m very pleased with the way he came out and competed last night. He handled a lot of calls, a lot of different fronts from these guys. These guys played against some bulldogs out there last night. They have some good players. I think Nick did a good job overall really standing up to it. Like I said, obviously, Marc and Ben (Wilkerson) will have him and we’ll go ahead and do some corrections. As a unit, we just need to go ahead and keep improving collectively. That’s the biggest thing. The one thing about those bigs is it doesn’t matter how one guy plays. It’s all five have to play in-sync, all the time. They have to get that chemistry as you’re referring to going forward. I have no doubt that there’s going to be a lot of improvement going forward. I’m very confident in all the guys we have involved in our offensive line, both the five from last night and all the other guys on our roster. We’re going to keep working with these guys and improving.

NOTES…
QB Daniel Jones Jones has thrown at least one touchdown pass in each of his first 13 career starts, the fourth-longest streak among quarterbacks who started their careers since the 1970 merger.

WR Darius Slayton had his fourth two-touchdown game of his young career.

WHAT’S UP NEXT…
The players return to practice on Wednesday. Head Coach Joe Judge and select players will also address the media.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS 26 – NEW YORK GIANTS 16…
Despite the game remaining close for three quarters, the Pittsburgh Steelers pulled away in the 4th quarter and soundly defeated the New York Giants on Monday night at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Giants begin the 2020 NFL season 0-1.

What killed the Giants was their inability to run the football combined with two very costly interceptions by quarterback Daniel Jones. The defense also crumbled at inopportune times, including after both turnovers and late in the first half. Running back Saquon Barkley was held to an abysmal six yards on 15 carries. Indeed, Jones was the team’s leading rusher with 22 yards as Giants’ running backs only combined for seven yards rushing.

The Giants received the football to start the game, picked up two first downs, but were then forced to punt. However, New York was handed a golden opportunity when Pittsburgh’s returner muffed the punt and the Giants recovered the loose ball at the Pittsburgh 3-yard line. But the Giants could not get the ball into the endzone after a 1-yard run and two incomplete passes as they settled for a 21-yard field goal.

After both teams exchanged three-and-outs, the Steelers tied the game at 3-3 when their 13-play, 59-yard second drive resulted in a 41-yard field goal. The Giants responded with an impressive 6-play, 75-yard possession that culminated in a 41-yard touchdown pass from Jones to wide receiver Darius Slayton. Early in the second quarter, the Giants led 10-3.

The Giants forced another three-and-out by the Steelers. With momentum clearly in New York’s favor, Jones threw his first bad interception on the first play of the subsequent drive. Linebacker T.J. Watt fooled Jones when he dropped into coverage and the Steelers had the ball at the New York 36-yard line. Six plays later, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw a 10-yard touchdown. Pittsburgh missed the extra point and the Giants led 10-9.

After two punts by the Giants and one by the Steelers, Pittsburgh got the ball back at their own 22-yard line with 1:32 left before halftime. Unfortunately, the New York defense could not prevent the Steelers from easily marching 78 yards in eight plays to take a morale-sapping 16-10 lead into halftime. Roethlisberger threw a 13-yard touchdown pass with just seven seconds left on the clock.

Nevertheless, the Giants were still very much in the game. After the Steelers picked up one first down to start the third quarter, they were forced to punt. The Giants then began a marathon 19-play possession that started at their own 9-yard line. Despite no running game whatsoever, the Giants converted on 3rd-and-14, 3rd-and-1, 4th-and-1, 3rd-and-6, and 3rd-and-3 to keep the drive alive. Disaster struck when on 2nd-and-3 from the Pittsburgh 4-yard line, Jones scrambled to his left, was hit as he threw, and the pass was picked off in the end zone by a defensive lineman for a touchback. The 19-play, 87-yard, almost 9-minute possession resulted in no points. It was a devastating turn of events.

Predictably, the Steelers took advantage of the huge momentum switch as they drove 62 yards in nine plays to set up a 36-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter. The Steelers now led 19-10 and the Giants were clearly in trouble.

The game was all-but-officially decided on the next two series. Despite starting their next possession at their own 40-yard line, the Giants went three-and-out. The Steelers then drove 75 yards in 11 plays to take a commanding 26-10 lead with 5:23 to play. New York drove for a garbage-time touchdown, ending with Slayton’s second touchdown catch on 3rd-and-goal from the 7-yard line with less than two minutes to play. The two-point conversion and subsequent onside kick failed. The Steelers then ran out the clock to preserve the win.

Offensively, the Giants were held to 291 total net yards (29 rushing, 262 passing). The team did convert 8-of-15 times on third down (53 percent) and 1-of-1 on 4th down. Jones completed 26-of-41 passes for 279 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He was the leading rusher with 22 yards on four carries. The leading receivers were Slayton (6 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns), Barkley (6 catches for 60 yards), and wide receiver Sterling Shepard (6 catches for 47 yards).

Defensively, the Giants allowed 349 total net yards (141 yards rushing, 208 yards passing). Pittsburgh scored on five of their 10 offensive possessions (three touchdowns and two field goals). The Giants did not force a turnover on defense. Defensive linemen Leonard Williams and Dexter Lawrence each had sacks.

Video highlights are available on Giants.com.
