Dexter Lawrence, Nick Gates were highest-graded Giants in Week 12

New York Giants fans had a collective stomach ache on Thursday afternoon and it wasn’t because of their Thanksgiving Day feasts. It was because Big Blue repeatedly shot themselves in the foot during a 28-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Although the Giants still control their own playoff destiny, the ship appears to be taking on water. They need to get things turned back around quick, fast and in a hurry.

Here’s a look at the highest and lowest grades for offense, defense and special teams courtesy of Pro Football Focus.

Note: We’re only including players who saw 15+ snaps in the game.
