New York Giants: Week 2 offensive storylines to watch
4 of 4
3. Protecting the Duke
Yes, McAdoo’s favorite saying. The Giants turned the ball over just once last week, as Manning was credited with an interception after Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown ripped the ball away from Roger Lewis.
Turnovers have been a problem, though. Big Blue tallied 27 giveaways last season, tied for eighth most in the league. Sure, protecting the football should always be an emphasis.
But having a dominant defense gives the New York Giants a chance to win every week, so limiting the opposing team’s short-field opportunities will put Manning and co. in the best position to win.
