It has been quite the turnaround for the NY Giants over their last few games. After starting the season 1-5 and 2-8 with the top pick in the NFL Draft seeming more and more likely, the Giants have won their last three and currently sit at 5-8. Thanks to their recent hot streak, the Giants now sit just one game back for the No. 7 seed in the NFC with four contests left.
They're now in for another test this Sunday as they head to the Big Easy to take on the New Orleans Saints, who are also looking to capture a playoff spot. So, it is safe to say that both these teams have a lot to play for this Sunday in the Caesars Superdome.
For the Giants, led by an unsung hero, undrafted quarterback Tommy DeVito, it will be another test with the Superdome expected to be rocking. However, with the way the Giants have been playing over the last few weeks, you should not count them out. Here are four bold predictions that could happen this Sunday against New Orleans:
4. Wide Receiver Jalin Hyatt scores his first NFL touchdown
This is bound to happen at some point but why not this Sunday? Jalin Hyatt, a wide receiver who the Giants took in the third round in this past year's draft, has been getting more reps as of late and showing improvement, especially with DeVito at quarterback.
Even though he just had two catches for 13 yards on Monday night over the Packers, for some reason, this seems like the moment Hyatt will get his first score. Over his last three games, he's had eight catches for 129 yards. On the season, he's averaging more than 18 yards per reception.
Plus, he seems to be more comfortable with DeVito as the quarterback for Big Blue. Even though this will be another daunting task for this Giants offense going up against a tough Saints defense, Hyatt seems like he's ready to finally find the end zone. With his blazing speed, we wouldn't be shocked if it came on something north of 50 yards either.
