Giants pull off historic comeback to notch first win of season

0 27

The New York Giants (1-1) started off the season in all the wrong ways, but with a resilient 31-28 win against the Arizona Cardinals (0-2) on Sunday, they found themselves on the right side of history. 

Following last week’s humiliating 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Giants trailed 20-0 at halftime on Sunday, becoming the first team since the 1989 Steelers to allow 54 or more unanswered points to begin a season. However, things quickly turned around after the break, with quarterback Daniel Jones’s 317 total yards and three touchdowns in the second half propelling a come-from-behind victory.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, New York overcame a 21-point deficit for the first time since 1949, when it defeated the Chicago Cardinals 41-38. The Giants had lost 150 straight games when trailing by at least 21 points, thus snapping what was the second-longest streak of its kind in NFL history.
