Giants' first loss under McAdoo a repeat of last year

BY foxsports • September 26, 2016

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants' first regular-season loss under Ben McAdoo looked like many of the crushing ones from their last year under Tom Coughlin.

In falling 29-27 to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, the Giants (2-1) blew a late lead, turned the ball over three times, had dumb penalties and had a couple of injuries that are going to leave them short-handed heading to Minnesota next Monday night.

The biggest injury was a season-ending torn triceps sustained by running back Shane Vereen . He started against Washington with Rashad Jennings nursing a thumb injury. He has been their third-down back, with his 59 catches last season finishing second on the team.

New York also had cornerbacks Eli Apple (hamstring) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie hurt, leaving them uncertain for the Vikings.
