The NY Giants are in the thick of the NFC East race, and the combination of the upcoming schedule and complementary style of football could put Joe Judge’s team in the driver’s seat over the final six weeks
Following two consecutive division wins over the Washington Football Team, and snapping an eight game losing streak to the Philadelphia Eagles, with quarterback Daniel Jones playing turnover free games in both, the NY Giants are in the driver’s seat for the NFC East crown.
Despite a 3-7 record, Jones and the NY Giants have played to one-score losses against the Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Eagles, but in recent weeks have shown an ability to close out victories late thanks to an opportunistic defense and balanced offensive attack.
Following the bye week, the Giants have a reasonably manageable schedule, with games at the Cincinnati Bengals, at the Seattle Seahawks, home against the Arizona Cardinals, home against the Clevleand Browns, at the Baltimore Ravens, and hosting a Dallas Cowboys team that will have its golf bags ready to be loaded into their sportscars in the DFW parking lot following the Jan. 3 finale at MetLife Stadium.
Can the Giants win three more games down the stretch to be in prime position for an NFC East championship and home playoff game to cap Joe Judge’s first season as head coach? Time will tell.
Before looking too far ahead, let’s look back at the first ten games leading into the bye week, with a grade for every player currently on the active roster:
