EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants got Odell Beckham back, and somehow their offense managed to look even worse than it did in the opener. Their pass protection is bad, their running game is nonexistent, their receivers aren't reliable and their quarterback is shaky.
There are literally dozens of things that went wrong in the Giants' 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions in their home opener on Monday night. But Ben McAdoo made it clear in his search for answers that he knew exactly where to start.
"I'll tell you the same thing I told my players," McAdoo said. "Put this game on me."
That's a good place to start, but it's not completely fair to the rest of the people in the Giants locker room who deserve blame for this loss and this disastrous 0-2 start to the season. Almost all of them, by the way, reside on offense where, as guard/tackle Justin Pugh said, "right now, not much is going right."
