The New York Giants nearly stole a road game against the Washington Football team. Unfortunately, they lost 30-29 after Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins nailed a 43-yard field goal at the buzzer.
Prior to the game winning kick, Hopkins actually missed because the Giants were flagged for an offsides penalty by defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence.
Former New York Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes dropped some damning information on Friday when he confirmed with a team source that the offsides called against Dexter Lawrence in the waning moments of the game was botched.
“Just confirmed with a Giants source that Dexter Lawrence was NOT offsides (coaches film).
The referees missed it and the Giants will get the obligatory phone call from the head of officials saying, sorry we missed it.”
In his first two seasons, Lawrence had 54 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble and three pass deflections.
Daniel Jones finished 22-for-32 for 249 yards and one touchdown. He also led all Giants rushers with 95 yards on nine attempts. Taylor Heinicke finished with 336 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.
