The New York Giants fell short, losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars in their first game of 2018. The score was 20-15, leaving the Giants at 0-1 to begin the season.

Like most games for NFL teams, there were positives and negatives for the Giants at the end of this contest.

It’s only Week 1, so although there may be overreactions from fans. One game doesn’t decide your season this early. The Giants will need to make some adjustments going forward just like any other team after a loss.

The Giants actually had a chance to drive down the field and win the game, late in the fourth quarter. With 4:10 left in the game, quarterback Eli Manning and the offense had the ball but were unable to execute. They had possession until the 1:55 mark, when Manning threw an incomplete pass to wide receiver Sterling Shepard. The Jaguars just ran the clock out from there en route to a victory. Like I mentioned, there are things for Giants to take out of this game.

Here are five things they can take away from it.
