The New York Giants suffered a third straight loss and are still in search of their first win of the 2013 campaign.

When New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese installed a Super Bowl countdown clock at Big Blue’s training facility this preseason, not a single player, fan or front office member ever envisioned that the team would face an 0-3 record to start the year.

The harsh reality is that Big Blue has hit rock bottom and Sunday’s embarrassing defeat to the Carolina Panthers saw the team reach the lowest of lows. The Giants produced a paltry 60 yards on the ground and quarterback Eli Manning threw for just 90 yards as everything that could go wrong, went wrong for Tom Coughlin and company. The Giants’ offensive line surrendered eight sacks and ten hits on Manning as Big Blue’s signal-caller was under duress on seemingly every play.

Once again New York lost the turnover battle 2-1 as the Panthers turned a 17-0 halftime edge into a 38-0 rout. Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton completed 15-27 passes for 223 yards 3 touchdowns and one interception, while running back DeAngelo Williams rushed for 120 yards on 23 carries. The Giants hold claim to the NFL’s worst rushing offense and can’t seem to get out of their own way committing costly turnovers time and time again.

As Coughlin and crew get back to the drawing board, if one thing is for sure, it’s going to be a long week of practice before New York travels to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday.
