The Giants added another chapter to their dreadful 2019 story Monday night by squandering a 17-3 halftime lead in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The Eagles rallied in the second half, tying the game with 1:53 to play in regulation and then winning it in overtime on a pair of 2-yard, Carson Wentz-to-Zach Ertz touchdown passes. The final score was 23-17.

"I was thinking about where the Giants are and the rest of this NFL," WFAN's Gregg Giannotti said on Tuesday's "Boomer and Gio" show. "The worst teams in football have moments, like the Washington Redskins and Dwayne Haskins -- they went down to Carolina, they won that game. The Cincinnati Bengals, at 0-11, Andy Dalton comes back, and they end up beating the Jets and playing really well. The worst teams in the game have the moments the Giants don't. Are the Giants the worst team in football right now? I think it's probably a question that has an answer of yes this morning after losing nine in a row."

The Giants' nine-game losing streak ties a franchise record. The team is 2-11 on the season -- their third straight year with 11 or more losses 

Other than a two-game win streak early in the season, when rookie quarterback Daniel Jones flashed his potential, it's been a miserable year for Giants fans.

"They haven't had a reason to feel good since September or early October, and they had it last night (in the first half), and then it was snatched away from them," Giannotti said. "As a sports fan, forget about the draft pick for a second, you just want a reason to feel good. We talk about it with the Knicks all the time. They don't give you any reason to feel good. This Giants season, they haven't had any reason to feel good, to celebrate and everything else.

"Now maybe they will at MetLife Stadium next week. Eli Manning, the sendoff game against the Dolphins, maybe that's the thing. Maybe that's their moment."
