Giants news, 9/27: Rock bottom again for New York

Jordan Raanan gives the Giants a confidence rating of 1.2 out of 10. What to know: If they’re not going to beat the Falcons at home on Eli Manning Day, where are the wins coming from on the schedule? The Giants (0-3) play next at the Saints, at the Cowboys, vs. the Rams, vs. the Panthers, at the Chiefs, vs. the Raiders and then at the Bucs. Yikes! They want to keep saying they’re only worried about this week and what they can control at the moment. The rest of us are concerned about where this season is headed and who will be accountable for this mess. — Jordan Raanan.

He also had a 58-yard touchdown run negated by a questionable holding call by receiver C.J. Board downfield and had Darius Slayton drop a would-be 43-yard touchdown pass.

Why New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney's NFL Career is Off to a Slow Start

For the Giants, getting their first-rounder, receiver Kadarius Toney, on the field has been a challenge, thanks to various issues. These issues, which have cost him valuable training camp practice time combined with Toney's relatively newness in playing the receiver position in the largest media market, have all made for a bumpy ride to start his career.
