Giants-Bengals

It's no mystery that injuries have prevented the Giants from being a force in the NFC the past three seasons. No NFL team has incurred more over that period. So, last night, when four defensive backs were forced to leave the game, a pall fell over Giants' fans all over the world: "Here we go again!"

Cincinnati Bengals' QB Andy Dalton has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 10 performance against the Giants. Basically unfettered by the Giants' pass rush, Dalton had one of his best days as a pro.

Dalton completed 21 of 30 passes (70 percent) for 199 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 127.6 passer rating in the Bengals? 31-13 win over the Giants.

He connected with four different Bengals receivers on his TD passes ? 56 yards to WR A.J. Green, 11 yards to WR Andrew Hawkins, 10 yards to TE Jermaine Gresham and 10 yards to rookie WR Mohamed Sanu.

Since Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning became partners in this wild ride that is the modern-day Giants, they have owned September and October, but not November and December. If you check your calendar, today is Nov 11 and the Giants lost to an inferior opponent (that's debatable at this point) today. They are now 13-19 in the month of November under Tom.

No one is shocked, but everyone to a man is disappointed. Coughlin was out of answers at his postgame presser and the bye couldn't come at a better time...

Let's put this in perspective: the Giants?needed to get back on track against the Bengals. Instead, they came out flat, were dominated in the trenches and handed the ball over in critical situations.

Read a quarter-by-quarter breakdown of the Giants' breakdown; get it?

There was the Eli Manning problems ...

Someone forgot to tell the Giants their bye week isn't until next week. Instead, they decided to start that break one day early.

You can count the things the Giants did right today in Cincinnati on one hand. They played perhaps their worst game in years, turning the ball over four times to the Bengals' one. They fell behind quickly - 14-0 in the first five minutes - and never got on track, losing 31-13 to the now 4-5 Bengals.

The loss means the Giants (6-4) will only be 1 1/2 games ahead of the Eagles-Cowboys winner in the NFC East. The November struggles continue. The Giants are 13-19 in November in the Tom Coughlin/Eli Manning era.

Fourth Quarter:

Beginning the final quarter, Manning throws a beauty to Cruz, but he drops it. He was probably so shocked to be open for the first time today his excitement caused shaky hands.

On third-down, Bennett gets a case of the jitters, adds another big drop to the drive.

This week's game is crucial to the Giants (I know, every game is crucial) because with a win, they can put some distance between themselves and the loser of the Cowboys-Eagles game. They would remain 2 1/2 games in front of the winner and hold a 3 1/2 game lead on the loser with seven games remaining.

Beating the Bengals, however, won't be easy. It's certainly doable, but nothing is ever easy in this league and the Giants always seem to make things tough on themselves. Cincinnati is on a 4-game losing streak, but they've been competitive. Three of those losses came at home, too, so the 12th man might not have much starch left at this point.

They lost to Miami by 4, led the Browns after three quarters, were tied with Pittsburgh in the fourth quarter and went blow-for-blow with Brother Peyton last week. They will give the Giants a game today, you can bank on that. The effort will be there.

Sam Spiegelman: A.J. Green thinks there are holes in the Giants' defense, and rightfully so. BenJarvis Green-Ellis is not Isaac Redman, and New York will not allow another 100-yard rusher this week. Expect the Giants to force Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to throw the ball enough to force pressure and turnovers. Offensively, the Bengals are pretty tough up front, so this may have to be the slump-breaker for Eli Manning. Perhaps this marks the bounce-back game for Hakeem Nicks, too. Giants score, and score often, and roll into their bye week with a new-found swagger. Giants 35, Bengals 24

Paul Tierney (Giants 101): The Giants have not been playing championship-caliber football as of late. They have given up 1,263 yards of total offense over the last three weeks. Furthermore, Eli Manning has been completely out of sync with his wide receivers, which resulted in his pathetic 41.1 quarterback rating in Week 9. Despite Big Blue's shortcomings on both sides of the football, they have either won or given themselves a chance to win every game they have played this season. The Bengals enter this game with the league's 19th ranked pass defense to go along with a front seven that has allowed opponents to rush for 117 yards per game. AJ Green, Andy Dalton and Co. are more than capable of pulling this game out at home, but they will have to beat a better football team to do so. The Giants should roll into their bye week with a decisive victory on Sunday. Giants 30, Bengals 17

Jared Kruger: With the Bengals on a 4 game losing streak, Big Blue will find a way to extend that streak. They are looking for redemption after logging in some weak performances the past few weeks. Eli will break out of his "slump" and bring New York a much-needed victory heading into the bye. Giants 31, Bengals 21

The New York Giants (6-3) and the Cincinnati Bengals (3-5) square off Sunday with both teams looking to right the ship.

Coming off of a fourth-quarter collapse to Pittsburgh, the Giants face yet another AFC North foe as they attempt to put another check-mark in the win column before their bye week.

The Bengals have lost four consecutive contests, including last week's 31-23 loss to Peyton Manning's Broncos, and are falling out of the AFC playoff picture.

So Bengals' WR ?AJ Green told everyone the emperor had no clothes yesterday, and the emperor woke out of his daze. All the kid said was the Giants' defense has "holes" in it. ?It's like asking a five-year-old what color suit Santa Claus wears. It's a no-brainer.

The Giants took umbrage to the remarks, as they should. They needn't take their frustrations out on Green, however. Just go take a look in the mirror. This defense is leaky. It shows on the stat sheet and in the films, which are now available to every layman in the land thanks to the NFL selling them online.

"The game has to be played on Sunday and if he sees holes, hopefully he?ll find them," said safety Antrel Rolle, "We don?t worry too much about talk or what?s being said. We?ll see come Sunday."

Today on the Boomer and Caron Show on WFAN, Cincinnati Bengals' WR AJ Green had this to say about the Giants' defense:

?I feel like they?ve got a lot of holes in their defense....Their front four, they get so much pressure on the quarterback. A lot of people don?t have that much time to get the big plays on them.?

Nothing wrong with the young man's eyesight. The Giants are a kill-or-be-killed defense. If they don't get to the QB, as Bill Chadwick would say: "Katy, bar the door!" It's no mistake their games resemble a Hearns-Hagler fight. Haymaker city. If their offense whiffs on few, they get hammered by the media. The defense keeps getting a pass.

I think it?s kind of how we were raised. How we came in, our knowledge of what we?re doing. For me, I feel like my knowledge of the game is really what helped me. A.J., he?s so naturally gifted, and put that with the work ethic that both of us have, I think that?s what it comes down to, why we?ve been successful for the first year and a half that we?ve been in the league.

Tom Coughlin on the Giants' opponent this week: the Cincinnati Bengals.....

"We?re looking forward to getting back on the practice field, preparing for the Cincinnati Bengal team, a team that was 3-1 earlier in the year, has lost four very close games of late. Just a week ago, had lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 34-17, a very, very good football game. Then, against the Broncos, they were down 17-3 and came back to take a 20-17 lead, and eventually lost that game as well. They had some turnovers in that game. They looked like they were going to be in pretty good shape.

They are a team that?s built in the style of the AFC North, in that they?re attempting to overtake the Steelers. They?re built much like that. They have a big, strong and powerful offensive line. A.J. Green is an excellent receiver, a deep threat. (Andy) Dalton being the young quarterback who was a Pro Bowler a year ago. They were in the playoffs a year ago. They run the ball, (BenJarvus) Green-Ellis is there, as you know, as a free agent. He?s a powerful runner, a lot of the style that you see is emblematic of the formations that we just played against.

Earlier today, I played the role of physician in diagnosing the Giants' recent offensive slump. Partial blame was attributed to the lack of Hakeem Nicks in the passing attack.

Today, Nicks missed practice as his right foot and left knee issues reemerged. Nicks reportedly suffered swelling in the knee following the team's loss to Pittsburgh, and his status for Sunday in Cincinnati is now a question mark.

This now begs the question if injuries have hindered Nicks, or perhaps he returned too soon and re-injured or worsened the injury.
