Evan Engram and the Giants’ offense have to step up
Heading into week 17 the New York Giants have the 31st ranked offense in the NFL, one spot above their neighbors, the New York Jets who are 32nd in the league.
The Giants’ running game ranks 20th in the NFL with 109.5 yards per game. But where they really struggle is with passing the football where they rank 29th in the NFL. They’re only higher than the Jets, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots.
Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones has stated that he’s confident in their offense and Pro Bowl tight end Evan Engram has made it clear that he’s just as confident.
“I have the utmost confidence in our offense,” Engram said. “I think that the past couple games and some of the outings that we’ve had definitely aren’t up to our standard. We have to be better at execution, we have to be better at communication, we have to be better at making plays, making one on one plays.
“There are a lot of things that go into us as players that we haven’t been doing lately to make the offense roll. We’ve shown that we can get rolling. We’ve shown what we can do in the run game. We’ve shown what we can do in the pass game. We just have to get back to the basics and execute on those small things that we’ve done in the past.”
I’m glad that Engram is just as confident as Jones, but the problem is their confidence isn’t portrayed on the field because they’ve been abysmal the past several weeks. If they don’t step up against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday their season will certainly be over.
