Kenny Golladay was frustrated during the Giants’ “Thursday Night Football” loss to the Washington Football Team. Late in the game, he let that boil over on the sidelines.
Golladay was captured on film yelling at someone on the Giants’ bench. It looked like that person was Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, from the angle shown.

However, Golladay explained on Monday that he wasn’t arguing with his starting quarterback. He was actually airing his frustrations to offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
“Pretty much just me just talking to [Jason Garrett] a little bit,” Golladay said, per ESPN. “That is two competitive guys right there. More so just me wanting to do anything I can. Not so much get me the ball more.”
Golladay saw eight targets during the Giants’ 30-29 loss, good for the second-most on the Giants. However, he caught just three of them for 38 yards and dropped a catchable pass, so he may have been more frustrated with himself than anything else.
Either way, the move was out of character for Golladay, who blamed his competitive spirit for the outburst.
“I’ve never done anything like that either,” he said. “Really just passion. Just being a competitor. I want to do anything I can to help the team and I let the emotions get the best of me.”

Giants coach Joe Judge also downplayed Golladay’s outburst and further explained that there was no issue between Golladay and Jones.
“Look, I’d say in terms of — you guys asked me the other night about Kenny, there was no argument on the sideline. There was no him versus Daniel or anything of that nature. This is a guy that in the heat of the moment, you speak very passionately,” Judge said. “You kind of speak with some emotion. I speak with emotion on the sideline. There was no blowup or anything that has to be made of it.
“I understand sometimes the perceptions will be what they are, but like I said the other day, there’s no issue there.”
