Giants’ defense came up big
Looking at the grades that Pro Football Focus gave many players on the New York Giants from their win over the Cincinnati Bengals and it’s obvious that some of their top players came through.
Giants’ safeties Logan Ryan and Jabrill Peppers had their highest grades of the season with Ryan getting a 91.6, which was the highest for any defender on the team, and Peppers with an 89.6.
Other notable grades on the defensive side of the ball is Jabaal Sheard’s 90.7 grade, which is really good since the Giants signed him from the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad earlier in the season.
Linebacker Niko Lalos finished the game with a grade of 88.1 after coming in for Kyler Fackrell who suffered a calf injury.
Cornerback James Bradberry’s grade (66.7) wasn’t good for how well he’s been playing this season. The worst graded defneder was Devante Downs with a 44.8.
Defensive lineman Leonard Williams logged his sixth sack of the season and finished with a 75.8 grade.
On the offensive side of the ball quarterback Daniel Jones led the Giants with a grade of 78.6. I think he would have finished with a higher grade but he unfortunately got injured. He was actually the fourth best quarterback in the NFL this week.
The Giants offensive line continues to get better even with Marc Colombo’s firing. Here’s a breakdown of just how good they were against the Bengals.
New York’s offensive line gave both Daniel Jones and Colt McCoy a clean pocket for most of the game.
Wide receiver C.J. Board got the highest grade of any Giants’ receiver with a 71.1. Rookie offensive lineman Shane Lemieux had the lowest offensive grade of 42.9 on offense. For the rest of the grades, you can find them here.
