WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE SPECIAL TEAMS
With the offense struggling, punter Steve Weatherford had a busy night, punting nine times with a 49.7-yard average and landing one inside the 20-yard line. Long snapper Zak DeOssie had four special teams tackles, but the coverage team allowed 11 yards per punt return. As for the Giants’ returners, Quintin Demps spoiled the Giants’ best look of the preseason when he fumbled the ball in the first quarter after a 42-yard kick return.
