3. Beat The Super Bowl Champs
By the week 10 clash against the reigning Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, we will know if the Giants are contenders. If they are contending for the playoffs, beating the Patriots is a way to send a statement that they can beat the champions and the Giants aren’t stopping until they hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Beating the Patriots would be nice but history repeats itself and just playing the Patriots in the regular season has gotten the Giants to Super Bowl glory. Now I say that with a light-hearted fashion but it is a cool way to look at it.
When the weather starts getting cold the football starts getting really important and any time you can knock down a fellow contender, it means you are doing something right. Football is one of the most beautiful things this world has to offer and nothing is more aesthetically pleasing than seeing Giants fans jumping for joy. If the Giants beat the Patriots, like they did in two Super Bowls, the Giants faithful will be elated.
It is hard to wait for this week 10 clash. Just seeing the Patriots logo makes me think of the times the Giants knocked down the Patriots in the biggest moments imaginable. Eli Manning has been coined the “The Patriot Killer.” When the game is on the line you cannot go wrong with Tom Brady but history proves that Manning is the one who will lift Big Blue over Brady’s Pats.
