New York Giants 4-3

Never count a Tom Coughlin team out. Never. You may think I’m joking, but this is the type of season when the Giants ride into the playoffs on a Wild Card ticket and win the whole thing. Again.

Okay, I may be getting ahead of myself.

  • The Giants have seemed to lose a defensive back every week (since the preseason) to injury, and yet they still keep coming. Regardless of how underwhelming the offense may seem, everyone expected Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz to set records every week and they have still been performing at respectable level. Even though it almost seems like Eli Manning is avoiding Beckham on purpose. The Giants are essentially two plays away from being 4-0. However, you can say that about 12 other teams in the league. If the Giants manage to put a better running game together, or any for that matter, and continue to be a competent defense, they can be in good shape by Week 11.

    Best case scenario: 7-3 The Giants have a very winnable schedule coming up and, like I said, can put themselves in a great place within the division. The return of Jason Pierre-Paul might help them with their lack of pass rush, and Shane Vereen may continue to find ways into this offense.

    Worst case scenario: 3-7 Even though the schedule is winnable, we have seen this team implode just as easily as breakout. The defense is still suspect overall, and most games could continue to end up in fourth quarter shootouts.

    Likely outcome: 5-5 This team is hard to get a read on. Because there are so many question marks, at so many position groups, I have to believe that these guys will continue to stay in the middle.
