A Loss In More Ways Than One

 
A Loss In More Ways Than One

Eli Manning went 8-for-17 with no touchdowns and an interception and was outplayed in the 20-12 loss by Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who had two touchdown catches. Manning did not look sharp in the game and was getting knocked around when in the game for the Giants.

The team looked sloppy and made too many penalties and the offense didn't score a single point. You can't win games playing like this.

Not only did they lose the game they lost starting center David Baas for what could be up to 3-6 weeks after reportedly suffering a sprained MCL. With Baas' availability for week one now in question, the Giants may have to shuffle their offensive line, moving Kevin Boothe to center, David Diehl to left guard and Justin Pugh to right tackle.

Victor Cruz limped from the field early in the game with a reported bruised heel. Cruz is expected to undergo more tests to determine the severity of the injury and if there are any other problems. The best case scenario is that he misses only one week of action and the game against the Jets. It's possible though, that he could sit out the rest of the preseason.
