6 Giants in top-10 by position in 2023 Pro Bowl voting

6 New York Giants are among the top-10 vote-getters at their respective positions for the 2023 Pro Bowl, and one of them may surprise you.

The New York Giants have sent just three players to the Pro Bowl since 2018 (all coming in 2020), but could send as many as six to the All-Star event here in 2022-2023.

Pro Bowl voting is currently underway and six Giants are among the top-10 vote-getters at their respective positions, reports USA TODAY’s Art Stapleton.

They are as follows:

  • RB Saquon Barkley (1st)
  • OT Andrew Thomas (4th)
  • ST Nick McCloud (4th)
  • Graham Gano (6th)
  • S Julian Love (9th)
  • DT Dexter Lawrence (10th)

It’s hard to believe Thomas and Lawrence are fourth and tenth at their positions, respectively. Both are playing at an All-Pro level and should be considered shoo-ins for the Pro Bowl alongside Barkley.

Gano was also kicking at an All-Pro level before an illness derailed him against the Detroit Lions in Week 11.

Defensive lineman Leonard Williams not appearing in the top-10 is questionable, but that’s likely the result of an injury that caused him to miss three games earlier this year.

Pro Bowl selections are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches — each account for one-third of the final tally. Players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 16.

Giants fall to Cowboys: Winners, losers and those in between

The New York Giants fell to the Cowboys, 28-20, in Week 12 and here’s a look at our winners and losers (and those in between) from the game.

The New York Giants fell to 7-4 on the season with a 28-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. It wasn’t as ugly as some anticipated, but it wasn’t necessarily pretty, either.

The Giants blew an early second half lead and couldn’t seem to get anything going again until it was too late. In a game of inches, they came up a few short entirely too many times.

The opportunities were there but Brian Daboll’s group just couldn’t capitalize.

Here’s some winners, losers and in-betweens from Thursday’s loss.

Giants-Cowboys Week 12: Offense, defense and special teams snap counts

The New York Giants lost their Week 12 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Here are the snap counts on offense, defense and special teams.

The New York Giants started strong on Thanksgiving but by the end of the evening, they were the turkeys. Big Blue fell to 7-4 on the season after coming up short against the Dallas Cowboys, 28-20, in Arlington.

The Giants now have 10 days off before a critical game against the Washington Commanders, which will go a long way in determining potential playoff seeding.

There’s a lot to break down and a lot to go over but before we look ahead, let’s look back. Here are the snap counts that contributed to the Giants’ latest loss.

Offensive snaps: 64
Defensive snaps: 75
Special teams snaps: 23

The Giants’ makeshift offensive line took a full load of snaps from left to right a week removed from a major rotation. That includes guard Jack Anderson, who had been benched and inactive in Week 11.

With several defenders out, Jason Pinnock and Nick McCloud took on their biggest workloads of the entire season. Dexter Lawrence and Leonard Williams also got little time off during the game and that lack of rest may hurt them down the stretch.

Giants struggle in second half, fall to Cowboys, 28-20, on Thanksgiving

The New York Giants were the turkeys on Thanksgiving, falling to the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, 28-20.

The New York Giants provided little for fans to be thankful for on Thursday, falling to the Dallas Cowboys, 28-20, in Arlington.

Although Big Blue started off strong, taking a 13-7 lead into halftime, it was they who faltered over the final two quarters. Penalties, missed assignments and sloppy play were once again the contributing factors.

With the loss, the Giants, who started the season 6-1, fall to 7-4 and are at risk of falling out of the playoff picture if their struggles persist.

What we learned from Giants’ 31-18 loss to Lions

The New York Giants fell to the Detroit Lions, 31-18, in Week 11 and here’s some of what we learned from that loss.

The New York Giants stumbled against the surging Detroit Lions at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, falling to 7-3 after a disheartening 31-18 loss.

Here are a few things we learned from the Week 11 disaster.

Giants manhandled by Lions, 31-18, in ugliest performance of 2022

The New York Giants fell to the Detroit Lions, 31-18, in one of their ugliest and least inspiring performances of the 2022 season.

The New York Giants entered Week 11 with a 7-2 record and took on a Detroit Lions team many thought they would dispatch with ease. But that’s not what happened.

With winds swirling at more than 30 MPH, the Giants looked like a shell of themselves. Sloppy play, self-inflicted wounds and injuries would quickly become the story of the game. Even Daniel Jones, who had not thrown an interception since Week 3, turned the ball over leading to seven Detroit points. And then he tossed another.

It was a Murphy’s Law sort of day for the Giants. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. And with a short turnaround before a Thanksgiving Day game against the Dallas Cowboys, Big Blue fell to 7-3 on the season.

There was nothing redeeming about Sunday’s performance.

Baldy Breakdown: Giants have best DT tandem in the NFL

Between Dexter Lawrence and Leonard Williams, the New York Giants have the best DT tandem in the NFL, says Brian Baldinger.

Former offensive lineman and current NFL Network analyst, Brian Baldinger, has been known for his frank and honest assessment.

He usually does a piece every week on the New York Giants. This week, he loved so much of what he saw of the Giants in their 24-16 victory over the Houston Texans, he posted three times on Twitter.

The first was a tribute to quarterback Daniel Jones and his ability to audible correctly at the line of scrimmage.

No. 2 was on Saquon Barkley’s 153-yard rushing performance that jettisoned him back into the NFL rushing lead.

The third was on the defensive line tandem of Dexter Lawrence and Leonard Williams, who spent a great deal of the game harassing Houston quarterback Davis Mills.

As Baldy notes, the Giants may have the league’s best DT tandem with Dexter Lawrence and Leonard Williams.

Adoree’ Jackson, Leonard Williams were highest-graded Giants in Week 8

A look at Pro Football Focus’ highest- and lowest-graded New York Giants from their 27-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8.

The New York Giants couldn’t get things done in Week 8, falling to the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 27-13 and dropping their record to 6-2.

It was an all-around poor performance from Brian Daboll’s club and precious few players stood out, but there were some. For many others however, film (and grades) will not be kind.

Here’s a look at the highest and lowest grades for offense, defense and special teams courtesy of Pro Football Focus.
