Giants fall to Cardinals: Winners, losers and those in between

The New York Giants had hoped to rebound from two consecutive losses on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but looked like a team still on their 10-day break as they fell, 27-21.

Kyler Murray out-played Daniel Jones in a battle of first-round quarterbacks, as the Giants offensive line regressed to 2018 form in their ugliest showing of the season.

In fact, most of the game was ugly — you’re going to hear that word a lot this week — and there’s plenty of blame to go around. But it wasn’t all bad… There were a small handful of positives.

Winners

Rhett Ellison: Although Ellison did allow a tipped punt in the game and missed a rare block, he was sound outside of that. And in a game where almost everyone had highlight reel flaws, the veteran tight end played about as well as anyone could have hoped outside of two minor miscues. He finished the game with two receptions on two targets for 33 yards and a touchdown.

Michael Thomas: Thomas isn’t just valuable as a leader, but as a special teamer. He erupted through the line on a punt deep in Arizona territory, getting his hand on the Andy Lee boot in the endzone leading to a touchdown for Eli Penny, which all but erased an early Arizona lead and put the Giants right back in contention.

Golden Tate: Tate was heavily booed on the Giants’ first series when alligator arms got the best of him, nearly leading to an interception. After that, Tate threw caution to the wind and took every shot that came his way, ending the day with a team-leading six receptions for 80 yards on 11 targets.

Others: Deandre Baker, Janoris Jenkins, Jabrill Peppers
