Apple also addressed his Sunday night comment about the “culture” of the giants. "Just getting everybody on the same page, making sure everybody's mission is to win this game,” Apple said.

Chargers 27, Giants 22: Eli Apple Benched, Other Notes

Stats and notes from Sunday’s loss The fifth Sunday of the 2017 NFL season was, quite simply, a nightmare for the New York Giants. Not only did they fall to 0-5, effectively ending their season, but in doing so they suffered an almost unprecedented rash of injuries and quite simply could not hold on to a lead with the game on the line.

Instead, we want to focus on a story line that went (somewhat rightfully) unnoticed with the potential season-ending injury to Odell Beckham Jr. That is the benching of...
