So, the Giants are not a good football team. They lost Odell Beckham for the season. They were 0-5 heading into the game against the Broncos. Sure, they’ve had better weeks.
But, uh, Al Michaels just went there …
During the third quarter of the Giants-Broncos Sunday Night Football broadcast on NBC, Michaels said that the Giants were having a worse week than Harvey Weinstein. Multiple reports had exposed Weinstein’s troubling history of alleged sexual harassment and assault. Jokes about sexual assault aren’t funny in any context, so this joke did not work well.
Cris Collinsworth awkwardly laughed, and NFL fans were shocked at what they had heard.
