Giants’ playoff outlook is dire after Thanksgiving loss to Cowboys

Brian Daboll has told his team all season long to drag their opponents into the deep end to see if they can swim. The Giants have won a lot of games in the fourth quarter doing exactly that.

But here they are, headed towards the deep end of their season, and suddenly they’re the ones drowning.

Maybe that’s why the rookie head coach seemed so furious both during and after the Giants’ 28-20 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas on Thanksgiving. This Giants team has fought as hard as it could, with surprising results, all season long — just like they did when they took a halftime lead on Thursday.

But lately, when it matters most, nothing is going their way.

“It’s frustrating for all of us.”

There’s no doubt the frustration is starting to show for this upstart team, and the timing couldn’t possibly be worse. At 7-4, they’re now closer to last place than first in the NFC East, and their cushion in the playoff race is dramatically shrinking. They are staring at a very dangerous final six games, that include two games against the 9-1 Philadelphia Eagles, two against a Washington Commanders team that has won five of six and a game against…
