2. The Defense Generates Pass Rush And Turnovers

With an offense that puts up points, opponents will be forced to play into the strengths of the Giants’ defense. The Giants have pass rushers and they have a good cornerback duo in Prince Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Opponents will have to throw the football to keep up with Manning on the scoreboard. This could lead to big things from the defense.

Damontre Moore is ready for a breakout season. Jason Pierre-Paul seemed to find his stride in the second half of the 2015 season. The most encouraging news though may be that Steve Spagnuolo is the new defensive coordinator of the Giants. He is an aggressive coach with an ability to get the most out of his pass rushers. The more opponents pass the football, the more the Giants pass rushers get to relentlessly get after the quarterback.

Landon Collins will be a physical presence on this defense. The shallow and intermediate crossing routes are doomed against Collins. He will pick off a few passes and teams will have to game plan around him. Amukamara could have a career year, he has the ability to make teams pay for testing him. The defense may not be dominant, in passing situations the defense is built to be successful.
