The New York Giants suffered one of the toughest losses of the NFL's 2018 regular season today, losing a heartbreaker in the division to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants stormed out to an early lead and appeared to be primed to another win, but the Eagles pulled off quite the comeback in the second half.

Philadelphia ended up winning, 25-22, to stay in the hunt in the NFC East. New York, meanwhile, dropped to 3-8, all but ending any chances of a postseason berth.

The Giants' head coach, Pat Shurmur, is facing some serious criticism for how he handled things in the second half.

Most notably, Giants fans are crushing him for not utilizing Saquon Barkley enough.

Fans can't believe the Giants only gave Barkley five touches in the second half after the performance he had in the first half.

"Pat shurmur is such a bad coach. How you gonna only saquon Barkley the ball 5 times in the second half when he exploded in the first half. Hope he gets fired not even worth giving him a second season," one fan tweeted.

"Are my Giants losing on purpose I mean how do you dominate in the first half then choke in the second you don’t use the Barkley clearly Shurmur has no idea what he is doing this is why you don’t recycle bad coaches," another added.

Shurmur will definitely have some questions to be answered in his post-game press conference. Stay tuned.
