New York Giants nearing NFL’s all-time mark for sacks allowed

The New York Giants had high expectations entering the 2023 season with hopes of building off the success in their first year under Brian Daboll.

Instead, this season went south in a hurry and despite injuries across the roster, the most glaring issue has been a subpar offensive line that’s allowing a near-unheard-of number of sacks.

Though 14 games, the Giants have allowed a franchise-record 76 sacks. And Per Statmuse, the 2023 Giants are the third-most sacked team in NFL history, two sacks shy of the second-most.

With three games remaining, it’s hard to imagine the Giants give up an additional 28 sacks to tie the 1986 Philadelphia Eagles (104) as the most-sacked team in NFL history.

The Giants would have to give up an average of 9.3 sacks per game over their final three games to catch that clip.

They do play the Eagles twice in their final stretch, who have an elite pass rush and may want to shed their franchise from that embarrassing record.

The Giants have been sacked at least seven times in six games this season.

While the Giants have invested heavy draft capital in the offensive line between Evan Neal (first round) and John Michael Schmitz (second round) round over the last two drafts, clearly they still have work to do.
