"And I have to make sure that I do a better job and let the guys around me do a better job. I'd like to be able to point at one area but that's not what this is, it's a combination of things, all of us doing our jobs better (and) particularly in the fourth quarter as things go on; we have to make sure that we finish games. The other obvious is 11 penalties and a couple turnovers, we can't do that. Also, 3 for 15 on third down conversions, that's…you're shooting at 20 percent conversion margin there, and that's obviously not good enough. And then, being able to get off the field on key third down situations is also important, even though their percentage was only 38 percent."Join other diehard Giants Fans!  Follow @Giants
