Notes & Stats: Giants vs. Raiders Recap

LAS VEGAS – Notes and statistics from the Giants’ 30-6 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Allegiant Stadium:

*For the second consecutive game, rookie Tommy DeVito replaced the Giants’ starting quarterback in the second quarter and played the remainder of the game. Last week, it was Tyrod Taylor, who suffered a rib cage injury and was later placed on injured reserve. On Sunday, DeVito took over for Daniel Jones, who suffered a knee injury when he went down without being hit on the first play of the second quarter.

*Jones started after missing the previous three games because of a neck injury and completed four of nine passes for 25 yards. He also ran twice for nine yards. The severity of his injury will be determined in an examination on Monday.

*Given more opportunities to throw than he had last week against the Jets, DeVito completed 15 of 20 passes for 175 yards, a nine-yard touchdown to Wan’Dale Robinson, and two interceptions. He also ran for 17 yards on four carries.

*DeVito’s touchdown pass to Robinson was the first of his career. It was Robinson’s second career touchdown and first since Oct. 16, 2022, vs. Baltimore.

*Robinson’s touchdown was the Giants’ first in the fourth quarter since their victory in Arizona on Sept. 17.

*DeVito threw his first career interception when Amik Robertson picked off his pass deep down the middle for Jalin Hyatt with 3:36 remaining in the second quarter. It was the first interception thrown by a Giants quarterback since Oct. 2, when Jones was picked off twice against Seattle. Giants quarterbacks Jones, Taylor and DeVito threw 131 consecutive passes without an interception.

On the Giants’ next possession, DeVito’s pass for Darius Slayton bounced off the receiver’s hands, caromed off the outstretched arm of cornerback Marcus Peters, and was intercepted by Nate Hobbs, who returned it 10 yards to the Giants’ 25-yard line.

*Las Vegas scored 10 points off the Giants’ two turnovers.

*The Giants’ defense did not record a sack of Raiders quarterback Aidan O’Connell. It was the fourth game this season in which the Giants did not have a sack (also Dallas, Arizona and Buffalo).

*The Giants did not have a takeaway for the fifth time this season.

*This was the third game this season in which the Giants had neither a sack nor a takeaway.

*Jones and DeVito were sacked eight times for 46 yards in losses. It was the second-highest number of sacks allowed by the Giants in Brian Daboll’s two seasons as head coach (Seattle had 11 on Oct. 2).

*Slayton (59 yards) and Robinson (34 yards) led the Giants with four catches apiece.

*Parris Campbell caught two passes for 15 yards, his first receptions since Oct. 8 at Miami.

*Saquon Barkley rushed for a team-high 90 yards on 16 carries and caught three passes for 23 yards for 113 scrimmage yards. He has at least 98 scrimmage yards in each of the four games he’s played since missing three with a sprained ankle. In the last three games, Barkley has 118, 128 and 113 yards from scrimmage.

*The Giants fell to 2-7 overall, 1-4 on the road, and 0-4 vs. the AFC.

*The Raiders won their first game under interim coach Antonio Pierce, the Giants’ former linebacker. The Giants are 0-3 against teams playing their first game after an in-season coaching change.

*The Giants trailed at halftime, 24-0. It was their second-largest deficit of the season after two quarters. In the season opener, Dallas led the Giants at the half, 26-0.

*The Raiders became the second Giants opponent this season to score a touchdown on their first offensive possession when Jakobi Myers scored on a 17-yard end-around with 9:45 remaining in the opening quarter. The Miami Dolphins scored on their first offensive series on Oct. 8.

*Randy Bullock was the Giants’ kicker in place of Graham Gano, who was placed on injured reserve Friday with a knee injury. Bullock’s action was limited to two second half kickoffs, which were both touchbacks.

This was Bullock’s second appearance with the Giants in his 10-season, 138-game, six-team career. On Sept. 11, 2016, he replaced a suspended Josh Brown in the season opener in Dallas and kicked two extra points in the Giants’ 20-19 victory against the Cowboys. He did not attempt a field goal.

*The Giants played their first game without tight end Darren Waller, who is on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Daniel Bellinger started in his place and had three receptions for 43 yards, including a 23-yarder.

*Tackles Andrew Thomas (hamstring) and Evan Neal (right ankle) returned to the field after missing seven and three games, respectively. Neal said after the game he injured his other ankle, which will be examined Monday.

*The Giants’ starting offensive line, from left tackle to right, was Thomas, Justin Pugh, John Michael Schmitz, Ben Bredeson and Neal. It was the Giants’ eighth different starting offensive line combination in nine games.

*Pugh made his 76th career start at left guard, including two postseason games, and his second this season (Oct. 15 at Buffalo). Bredeson started at right guard for the first time in his career; he has 13 starts at left guard and three at center.

*Cornerback Adoree’ Jackson left the game in the second half with a concussion.

*Running back Deon Jackson and linebacker Justin Hollins made their Giants debuts but had no statistics.

*In their first game without Leonard Williams, who was traded last week, the Giants started defensive linemen Dexter Lawrence, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and A’Shawn Robinson. They combined for 10 tackles (five solo).

*Safety Xavier McKinney led the Giants with 10 tackles (seven solo).

*The Giants’ inactive players were kicker Cade York, running back Jashaun Corbin, center Sean Harlow, tackle Joshua Miles, safety Gervarrius Owens and nose tackle Jordon Riley.
