Commentator almost passes out in epic NFL meltdown

A New York radio host has unleashed an epic spray over his team's offensive line woes.

The ESPN host, Don La Greca, also showcased his incredible hatred of math, in the brutal dressing down after his team's disappointing Round 2 loss to the Detroit Lions.

As his face gets redder and redder, La Greca begins to take aim at the over-reliance on stats in the modern game, and how it takes the focus off how his team's offensive line, "sucks, period".

"Stop creating some narrative that everybody knows football better than somebody else, your eyeballs tell the story, the offensive line sucks," he said, as co-host Michael sits in utter bewilderment.

The enraged host then goes on to make increasingly unintelligible noises, satirising the comments of those who use statistics to analyse the game.

Vision of La Greca's epic spray quickly went viral online, with the host replying to many comments praising him for his passion.

The angry announcer had just watched his team fall 24-10 to the Detroit Lions.

Both teams and their respective offensive lines struggled during the clash at MetLife Stadium on Monday as Giants star Odell Beckham made his return from an ankle injury.

Detroit's Greg Robinson was penalised three times, with two accepted penalties, and was a big reason Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was under constant pressure.

Stafford was sacked just twice, thanks to his mobility, but Robinson especially struggled against Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon, who had five tackles.

Stafford lost a fumble on one sack and finished with 122 passing yards and two touchdowns on 15-of-21 passing. 

As much trouble as Robinson had with the Giants defensive front, he looked like a Pro Bowler compared to Ereck Flowers.

Lions pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah ran through Flowers like he was a turnstile en route to three sacks. Detroit dropped Giants quarterback Eli Manning five times and hit him an additional eight times with just a four-man rush. 

Manning turned in a game effort by going 22 of 32 for 239 yards with a touchdown and interception.
