Giants vs Falcons Live
The Falcons (2-4) will square off against the New York Giants (1-5) on “Monday Night Football” at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Atlanta is fresh off a big victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Falcons can win back-to-back games for the first time this season as they look keep their momentum rolling.
Consider this an elimination game for any thoughts of rejoining the NFC playoff picture.
The Giants have lost three straight and 18 of their last 22 regular-season games.
“Teams fight through adversity, and it’s in the Giants’ DNA to pull this thing out,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “I’ve seen it, I’ve studied the history of it, and I like the locker room that we’ve assembled.
“I’m impressed with the guys that we have in the locker room, and I know they’re going to fight. I watched the games just like you have and coached the games: These guys fight and these guys have enthusiasm. We just haven’t executed, and I’ll keep saying that until we do.”
The football media and football public might be down on them, but the Giants remain determined and optimistic they will be much more successful in their final 10 games than they were in their first six.
The Giants are 1-5 and have lost three consecutive games, the latest a loss to Philadelphia 10 days ago that resulted in headlines proclaiming the season all but finished. But the Giants believe they are just getting started, a claim they can begin backing up tomorrow night against the 2-4 Falcons in Atlanta.
At another meeting with reporters, Shurmur said, “Despite the outside noise, I think they’re staying in the moment. I encourage them to live in the moment.”
