With 2:22 left, cornerback James Bradberry intercepted Taylor Heinicke’s pass at Washington 20, but the Giants decided to settle for a field goal.
New York would have won the match if Dexter Lawrence, a defensive lineman, hadn’t jumped onside for a Washington field kicker Dustin Hopkins attempted at 48 yards. The attempt was missed far right. Hopkins was given another opportunity and connected with a 43 yard kick just before the clock expired.
A 58 yard touchdown run by Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was also stopped by C.J., a wide receiver. Board deep downfield. New York scored a field goal from the drive.
Giants fans weren’t happy with the loss of their team, as were wide receiver Kenny Golladay and Jones, who exchanged words on the sidelines after an incompletion.
Jones stated that Golladay seemed “just frustrated” after the match. It wasn’t to me, or anybody else.
New York was the target of a lot of criticism on social media as the mistakes piled up.
