Giants, Giants Week 6, Giants Week 6 Takeaways, Giants Rams, Rams

With the New York Giants Week 6 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams complete, now might be the time for the franchise to hit the panic button. We’ll be taking a look at the Giants-Rams game, as we go over our top Giants Week 6 takeaways.

The Giants are falling off of a cliff as they have an insane amount of injuries stacked up on the roster. This team wasn’t going to be competitive this year anyway, but it’s even more difficult now with how many starters will be missing time.

Outside of the injury plague in New York, the Giants have a beacon of hope in Kadarius Toney. He’s going to miss at least one game, but when healthy, he has the potential to play an important role on this team. Additionally, the clock might be ticking for Daniel Jones. With that said, here are our top Giants Week 6 takeaways from their matchup against the Rams.

Giants Week 6 Takeaways

3. Giants suffer from injuries galore

It’s been rough for the Giants and it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier as we approach the midway portion of the season. There are so many injuries on the roster, New York is essentially going to be playing games with their practice squad.

Injuries can deflate the best teams in the league. However, for New York, these injuries have knocked them completely off their path. The fan base was excited for the season as the front office made aggressive moves to improve the roster. Nothing has worked in the Giants’ favor, and it likely won’t turn around any time soon.

2. Kadarius Toney seems like the real deal

Since earning a more prominent role in Week 5, Kadarius Toney has become the top receiver on the team. Unfortunately, he’s one of the many players sidelined due to the injury bug. Even so, Toney has flashed greatness in his limited amount of playing time.

On Sunday against the Rams, Toney reeled in three receptions for 36 yards. He did this within the opening minutes of the game and was on an insane pace for the entire game. If it weren’t for his hurt ankle, we likely would have witnessed another strong performance out of the Giants rookie receiver.

Kadarius Toney won’t be available in Week 7 but could be back by Week 8. Either way, Giants fans at least have something to look forward to, as Toney has the talent to be a legitimate playmaker in the NFL.

1. Time is running out for Daniel Jones

Some might believe it’s unfair to think so, but time is running out for Daniel Jones in New York. So far, he’s had a similar start to his career as Marcus Mariota had with the Tennessee Titans. Sometimes Jones looks great, but sometimes he’s so bad we question whether or not he should be a starting quarterback.

It’s important for a franchise to be patient with a young quarterback, but as of now, it doesn’t seem like Jones will be able to turn things around. He still has plenty of time to do so this season, however, the chances of that happening are diminishing. We’ll see how the rest of the year plays out, as the Giants must find a way to get another W in the win column.
