EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. â?? What did we learn from Friday’s 20-12 loss by the New York Giants to the Pittsburgh Steelers? Well, lots of stuff. Here is some of what we discovered.

Geno Smith, Josh Johnson Both An Adventure

Smith had a better night than Johnson, but neither was terrific. Johnson went 5-for-10 for 31 yards. He was unsure of himself in the pocket, leading to the three sacks he took. Smith made some nice throws, but threw a bad interception in the third quarter. He also had an interception wiped out at the end of the first half by a Pittsburgh penalty.

Protect The Duke, Young Fellas!

Undrafted free agent Travis Rudolph fumbled a kickoff. Donte Deayon muffed a punt. Both resulted in turnovers. Neither play will help either of the young men make the 53-man roster. Rudolph did have a nice 31-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter.

Backup Cornerback Help Wanted

If we didn’t know the Giants need some veteran help here, we should know it now.
