The New York Giants’ 2019 season will come to a much-needed end in a couple of weeks. The NFC East franchise fell to 2-11 on the year on Monday night with a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Major changes could be coming to the franchise in the offseason.
Saquon Barkley summed up the state of the Giants following Monday night’s loss. He didn’t hold back.
“We’re a team that finds a way to lose a lot of games,” the star running back said. “That’s what we are as of right now, yes. That’s our team. We’re just an inconsistent football team. We find ways to lose games.”
New York started well on Monday night, jumping out to a 17-3 halftime lead, before losing in overtime.
Damning words from Saquon Barkley: “We’re a team that finds a way to lose a lot of games. That’s what we are as of right now, yes. That’s our team. We’re just an inconsistent football team. We find ways to lose games.” https://t.co/vL3uc9BsU0

The Giants have lost nine straight games heading into the season’s final three weeks. New York was 2-2 following a win over Washington in Week 4. The team has fallen off a cliff since.
Significant changes could be coming to the Giants in the offseason, from a move at head coach to a change in the front office.
New York will finish the regular season with games against Miami, Washington and Philadelphia. There are some potential wins there, but the Giants would likely be better off just losing and solidifying a top NFL Draft pick.
