The Giants play 5 more games against 4 opponents. Here is a look at where they stand now.
The Green Bay Packers (11-0) bring in the number one scoring offense in the NFL. They average almost 35 points per game, and are third in passing yards per game. The Packers have played some close games on the road this year, and are ranked 30th in yards allowed and 31st in passing yards allowed. Obviously opposing teams are behind most of the time, and need to throw the ball in order to try and catch up. This game Sunday at Giants Stadium should show us if the Giants have any fight left in them after two brutal losses for the stretch run.
The Dallas Cowboys (7-4) The Cowboys play the Arizona Cardinals this week in Arizona. The Cowboys who have basically survived the last two weeks with wins over Washington in overtime, and a one point win Vs. Miami at home on Thanksgiving. The Dallas team has found a running game and this has helped Tony Romo tremendously. He still makes a few mistakes here and there, but at least there is another option available to the coaching staff. The defense continues to be inconsistent. The Giants will face the Cowboys first in Arlington on a Sunday night, and then again at Giants Stadium on New Years Day.
The Washington Redskins (4-7) The Redskins are still a very good and powerful defensive team. They unfortunately have been ravaged by injuries on the offensive side of the ball. The Redskins face the Jets this week, followed by the New England Patriots before traveling to New York to face The Giants. This team can play spoiler to both New York teams, a position you would think they would relish, but they might not have enough weapons to accomplish the feat.
The JETS (6-5) This might turn out to be the biggest game New York has seen in a long time. The offensively challenged Jets continue to be extremely inconsistent. They must travel to Washington this week, who’s defense will give them nothing to be happy about, then play Kansas City who also plays tough, stingy, defense, and then travel to Philadelphia, who after Thursday nights performance look about done.
There you have the future opponents for the New York Giants….It might be quite the ride!
