Giants' veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins was quite angry after the team's 28-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.
"We have to make some changes, we have to make fixes. Everybody has to make corrections. Like I said, he can't just stand back there and pat the ball with no pressure," said Jenkins, according to Tom Rock of Newsday Sports.
The Bills offense racked up 388 total yards, as quarterback Josh Allen went 19-for-30 passing with 253 yards and one touchdown. Allen was sacked just three times, with the Giants defense getting very little pressure, allowing him to take his time in the pocket.
"I can't cover nobody for 10 secs. Who can cover somebody for 10 secs?," Jenkins said. "Go look at the first five seconds of the route, he's not open. If there ain't no pressure, what do you want me to do? I can't cover this side and that side. Like, come on, bro. You gotta play football around here."
Jenkins finished the game with seven solo tackles, but the lack of pressure on Allen clearly frustrated the cornerback.
The Bills converted on third down five out of 13 times, and were a perfect 4-for-4 in the red zone. Wide receiver John Brown led the way for Buffalo with seven catches for 72 yards, while fomer Dallas Cowboys wideout Cole Beasley had four grabs for 83 yards.
"We have to get pressure on him. Second half we made adjustments," Jenkins said. "If we give any quarterback five, eight seconds in the pocket, he's going to find open receivers. It's football."
Giants defensive tackle Olsen Pierre and linebacker Markus Golden both recorded one sack, while linebackers Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines each had 0.5 sacks.
The defense is going to need more pressure going forward to help slow down opposing offenses, as the team has allowed an average of 31.5 points per game to their opponents so far this season.
