Title: The New York Giants’ Disappointing 2023 Season Plagues Offense, Puts Team in Draft Contention
In a season that was expected to bring great promise for the New York Giants, disappointment has plagued the team’s offense. Currently, the Giants rank dead last in both points per game and yards per game, leaving fans and experts questioning their performance.
To add to their struggles, quarterback Daniel Jones suffered a devastating torn ACL, ending his season prematurely. Now, third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito has been thrust into the spotlight to lead the struggling offense. With limited experience and time to prepare, DeVito faces an uphill battle to turn the team’s fortunes around.
The misery doesn’t end there for the Giants, as their offensive line has been porous, allowing an alarming NFL-leading 54 sacks and 183 pressures. This inability to protect the quarterback has undoubtedly contributed to the team’s lackluster performance this season.
Worryingly, the Giants are on pace to challenge for the undesirable title of having the worst offense in NFL history, currently averaging a meager 11.8 points per game. Their offensive struggles are even worse than some historically bad offenses, including the 1993 Colts, 1993 Bengals, 1990 Patriots, 2009 Rams, 2006 Raiders, 2000 Browns, 1998 Eagles, 1991 Colts, and 1992 Seahawks.
With a dismal 2-8 record, the Giants find themselves in contention for the No. 2 pick in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. While this may provide an opportunity to secure a standout player, it also highlights the team’s disappointing season thus far.
As the Giants continue to stumble through the remainder of the 2023 season, it remains to be seen whether any changes or improvements can salvage their campaign. In the meantime, fans and analysts alike anxiously await the conclusion of the season and hope for a brighter future ahead.
