The Bye Week in “The Land of Big Blue” is upon us. We can rest easy and focus on fantasy football for this upcoming Sunday, right?
Not quite. The fans and the Giants should get their minds mentally prepared for the Miami Dolphins in Week 8…. Let me show you the way.
The New York Giants play host to the Miami Dolphins on October 30th. The Miami Dolphins feature a team that has a self-proclaimed “Monster” in Brandon Marshall, and a familiar foe in Matt Moore.
Matt Moore is the same quarterback who started the season opener for the Carolina Panthers against the Giants last year. The Giants completely decimated Moore, leading up to the Jimmy Claussen “Error” as I like to call it in Carolina.
The Miami Dolphins are currently 0-5 heading into Week 7 against Denver. This does not make them an automatic win heading into MetLife Stadium in Week 8.
The Giants have a tendency to give up big plays, along with playing down to their opponent. The Giants need to take this bye week to get Grant, Rolle, Phillips, and Webster on the same page, as well as preparing the linebackers to hit Moore quick and early.
If the Giants can get to Moore’s head then they should be able to secure their 5th win of the season. The Jets showed that Moore, along with the rest of the Dolphins are the true front-runners in the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes along with the Colts.
After the Dolphins, the Giants have an onslaught of games that really tests their character. The likes of the Patriots, Niners, Eagles, and Saints are ready to continue the mid-season collapse trend that the Giants are so prone to in the Tom Coughlin Era. The Seahawks loss may prove to be a very costly one.
Can the Giants reverse the mid-season curse?
Only time will tell.
