The Odell Beckham Jr. – Josh Norman reunion had it’s interesting moments, but Eli Manning imploding and ruining the undefeated record for the New York Giants, while Kirk Cousins played his best game of the season so far, making it a mix of memes and players getting made fun of.
Beckham and Norman had their moment when Norman caught the wide receiver in the end zone and carried him like he was dancing with him. However, the best meme-worthy moment from Beckham came when he threw his helmet on the net that kickers practice on, and got owned, in a frustrating loss for him, which included another big catch from him, and another Eli Manning crucial interception.
The moment the Giants defense started picking up injuries, the offensive problems were exposed. Manning simply can’t be trusted in the regular season games, especially close ones, without the confidence a good defense provides. If he’s outplayed by Cousins, there’s a problem, no matter how much offensive talent he has to throw to.
The Giants struggled against the Cowboys and the Saints, two bad defenses. They managed to put up points on the Redskins, but didn’t do anything in the second half. And so, the Giants no longer look like a sure thing to win the NFC East. In short, this game made it all a lot more interesting.
