4. Week 6 vs. Bengals

This is the Giants' first and only Sunday Night Football matchup and it comes against one of the best teams in the NFL. This, alongside how close it is to the halfway point of the NFL season, could play a role in determining how the rest of the season goes for New York.

The Bengals may have had a down season in 2023, but a big reason for this is that star QB Joe Burrow played in just 10 games due to a wrist injury. While they've had some turmoil from within due to contract issues, the odds of them having another poor season are rather low.

However, if the Bengals do start off slow, this could be a demoralizing loss for them, one that they may not be able to afford with the trade deadline being just three weeks away. As for the Giants, a win against a team like the Bengals could give them an incredible amount of momentum heading into the second half of the season.
