The NY Giants are coming off arguably their best game of the 2023 campaign, which they'll hope to use as momentum this week when they host the struggling New England Patriots. Despite losing the previous three games, the G-Men were able to get themselves in the win column, and this time around, they led throughout the entire contest.
Last week, Big Blue took down the Commanders 31-19 in Washington with the help of their star running back Saquon Barkley and third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito. DeVito threw for 246 yards and three touchdowns, which caught everyone off guard, including Giants fans. Saquon had two of those touchdowns.
The Giants will now have the opportunity to win their second straight game during the regular season for the first time this year, which they have yet to accomplish since Weeks 6 and 7 of the 2022 season against the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars. Here's why we think they'll make it happen:
4. The Giants will use MetLife Stadium to their advantage
While the Giants only have three wins on the year, two of those victories were on the road. The last home win for Big Blue was Week 7 against the Commanders, but with the remainder of the regular season presenting some favorable matchups at home for the Giants, they'll look to change that narrative. The G-Men will host the Patriots this week and then, after their bye week, will take on the Packers in primetime for Monday Night Football.
Although this season hasn't gone as New York fans anticipated, we can expect Big Blue Nation to come out on Sunday and support the Giants. Last week's victory gave fans optimism about what this team can accomplish and showed many that the G-Men still have some fight in them and are looking to turn things around before the season's end. With a packed stadium, we think the Giants players will feed off the energy.
