Giants in trouble after third straight loss

The New York Giants losing ways continued and while NFC East quarterbacks keep dropping like flies, Big Blue's divisional title hopes are starting to fade away.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) There was a sense of frustration in Tom Coughlin's voice speaking about the New York Giants' third straight loss.

The 68-year-old coach had asked his team to step up with the season approaching crisis level, and it didn't. The offense had another no-show effort until the game was out of reach. The defense played well for a half, before being riddled by Andrew Luck in a 40-24 loss on Monday night.

The great effort that was needed to beat a very good team never emerged. The Giants (3-5) are reeling again and the prospects for rebounding are not promising with them heading to Seattle for a game in hostile confines against the Super Bowl champion Seahawks (5-3).

A third straight season out of the playoffs is a distinct possibility.
