Before today the Giants had only beaten Washington, Philadelphia, and a Joe Burrow-less Cincinnati team.
None of those wins could solidify the Giants as any type of serious threat. Coming into Seattle and holding Russell Wilson to just twelve points is a clear indication that teams should give the Giants a second look. While it’s just one win, it was a look at a new, more disciplined New York team. They are committed to playing their style of football and it is working. This is the best the Giants have looked in years and they did it without Daniel Jones. They could easily fall back to the team who started the season 0-5, however, this team looks focused on the future.
