DE Olivier Vernon said he and the rest of the Giants defense worked through film this week to determine what has gone wrong as of late.
The team enters this week with an 0-4 record and a defense that has allowed 142 yards rushing per game this season.
"Basically everybody just taking responsibility of their jobs, of basically what they need to do, what they need to do better," Vernon, who was unable to complete last week's game due to an ankle injury. "Basically, calling themselves out, self-critiquing themselves and basically owning up. Owning up to whatever mistakes that we all did out there and making it known.
The Giants alloewd a last-second, game-winning field goal last week for the second consecutive game and the team's defense missed key tackles throughout the game. Vernon believes the Giants need to remain calm and focus on winning their first game.
It's disappointing when you lose four straight games. That's not what you ever want to do, but seeing the game film from the past several weeks is just something that we can fix and that's the part that just guys are seeing and it can be a little frustrating at times, but it's just being able to bounce back and play Giant football," he said. "So, that's basically what we're going to do."
Vernon, who continues to deal with his injury, said his main concern is getting healthy again.
"Be healthy and win a game, basically."
