4. Washington Commanders

The Giants should take care of business against the NFC East rival Washington Commanders. Washington's defense led the league in the most opponent points per game at 30.5 and opponent total points at 518 in 2023. The Commanders have a young secondary consisting of Emmanuel Forbes Jr., Percy Butler, and Benjamin St-Juste. The team also signed cornerback Noah Igbinoghene as depth after Forbes struggled as a rookie and St-Juste was inconsistent last year. Still, the big free agent signing was safety Jeremy Chinn. 

This move comes after Kamren Curl signed with the Los Angeles Rams in free agency. Chinn enters his fifth professional season after four years with the Carolina Panthers. Last season, the veteran only appeared in 12 games and has struggled to stay healthy the previous two seasons.

He'll have the opportunity to bounce back with the Commanders and provide experience to a young secondary unit. With the Giants facing Washington on Weeks 2 and 9, we can expect Jones and the offense to take advantage of this inexperienced secondary.
