2. Can They Continue Their Turnover Rate?

Outside of Eli Manning, forcing turnovers is what’s kept the Giants alive this season. Their 13 interceptions is tied for the league lead, and they’re third in forced fumbles with 10. It’s worth mentioning the Giants are also tied for the league lead with Carolina with 57 passes defensed, but I think it’s in part because they’ve been thrown against so much because, well, they’re letting up a lot of big plays.

My concern: they get so many opportunities to turn the ball over because teams aren’t afraid to throw against a defense letting up the most yards per game in all of football.

If this trend of letting offenses continuing to test the secondary persists, continues, I’m going to assume the Giants’ turnover rate decreases, unless they make a change. In the second half, they have to face quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Cam Newton, and Ryan Tannehill and not Matt Cassel and Colin Kaepernick—that might not end up so well.
