Patrick Graham takes blame for week 2 defensive problems

With two games gone by this season, it looks like the New York Giants are a step behind on defense compared to last season. The defense came into the season looking like one of the team’s main strengths, but was a letdown through the first two games after allowing 27 points to Denver and 30 to Washington.

Graham, as expected, says getting better play from the defense is his responsibility

Let’s dive into some of the issues the Giants have had in pass coverage

The New York Giants’ defense has failed to live up to the lofty expectations they seemed to earn after an impressive 2020 season.
