For a New York Giants offense that scored 20 points or more in just six out of the 17 games they played this past season, it's safe to say the unit is looking for much better results in 2024. Big Blue averaged just 15.6 points per game in 2023 and for the fifth year in a row, they did not have a wide receiver reach 1,000 yards.

This could also be another difficult season for New York, especially after losing arguably their best offensive player in Saquon Barkley. Despite losing Barkley, all hope should not be lost for the G-Men this campaign.

Sure, the former No. 2 overall pick was electric for the Giants for over the last six years, but there is still optimism and some excitement about what this offense can do this fall and winter. Here are four reasons why:

4. Stability with the offensive line

It feels like for the first time in quite a while, the Giants offensive line may not be as bad as it has been for over the last several years. After leading the NFL in sacks allowed by a wide margin, there is reason to believe that the moves made at the offensive line position could help Daniel Jones and the Giants offense hopefully live up to their potential.

The Giants added key veteran players that they hope can protect Jones, as they signed guard John Runyan Jr to a three-year contract and they also added guard/tackle Jermaine Eluemunor to a two-year contract. Runyan has done a great job staying healthy throughout his career, as he's played at least 16 games over the last three seasons.

As for Eluemunor, he is the exact type of player they need on the offensive line, as he could be a possible option at the right tackle spot if former No. 7 overall pick Evan Neal continues to struggle. Eluemunor will start the year at left guard, but him potentially making a move to the outside midseason can't be ruled out. Add in Andrew Thomas, a former All-Pro LT, and John Michael Schmitz, and the guys up front are looking solid.
