The Giants sit atop the NFC East right around the NFL’s halfway mark. Some things you just couldn’t have predicted like the Cowboys getting eaten alive by the injury bug, the Eagles’ offense stagnating and the whole Jason Pierre-Paul fiasco.

But that doesn’t mean things will stay this way. Things rarely do in the NFL. Players improve, units that were underperforming at one point in the season make a 180, and before you know it, a team that once looked mediocre becomes a Super Bowl contender.
