4. Dominant Run Defense

The Giants rush defense has been dominant this season. It was my biggest reservation going into this season. Last year Big Blue gave up 4.9 yards a carry and were absolutely bullied at the line of scrimmage. This season the Giants have the number one ranked rush defense. The Giants only give up 69.8 yards per game.

The defensive line has been dominant. The linebackers have swarmed to the ball. The defense really has been a joy to watch so far this season. The defense is why the Giants beat the Bills. They stifled the running game which was the lifeblood of the Bills offense.

The Giants defense has had a couple big additions this year. Landon Collins is adding physicality and toughness and he just flies to the football. J.T. Thomas and a healthy Jon Beason have made an impact. But no impact is greater than the aggressive nature of Spagnuolo as the defensive coordinator.
