Clearly frustration building with the Giants defense. "When you got time and get no pressure, I can't cover nobody for 10 seconds?" CB Janoris Jenkins said. "Who can cover somebody for 10 seconds?" When Lorenzo Carter was asked about QBs having too much time and making it hard for the secondary he responded: "Sh**, it's true."

Coach Pat Shurmur said Eli Manning's play was indicative of how the team has played — some good plays, others not so good. In regards to getting Daniel Jones into the lineup: "Don't think that is a conversation for right now."

Aaron Boone joked with Dellin Betances "You're a command guy now!" Allowed him to only face two batters cause it's the first time he pitched after just one day of rest.

The Giants lost to the Bills 28-14 and are 0-2 now for the sixth time in seven years. Their defense struggled in the first half (260 yards and 21 points) and couldn't make a key stop late. Their offense hasn't topped 20 points in either game. This has the looks of a bad team, which will only spark calls for Daniel Jones to enter the lineup.

One week after getting torched by the Cowboys, the Giants allowed 260 yards in the first half. They also allowed 21 points in the first half for the second consecutive game for the first time since Weeks 12 and 13 of 2011. Their defense continues to be problematic as they trail 21-7.

Dellin Betances with his first major league action since the 2018 ALDS. Threw 8 pitches (7 for strikes) and struck out two batters (fast ball at 93-95 mph). Before the game, he addressed whether he could be an effective pitcher with his fast ball sitting between 92-95 mph: "I think a lot of guys have, I don't see why I can't. Breaking ball is good, so I just got to be able to change speeds. Make sure you keep the hitters off balance. That's the name of the game whether you throw 100 or mid 90s or low 90s. Obviously I know arm strength, I am still not where I want to be. Still better than what it was earlier in the season. I am happy with where I am at right now."
