31. . 1-5. Previous: 4th. New York Giants. 3. team

The Philadelphia Eagles have an important date with the Giants scheduled.

Lately, the ‘G-Men’ have been playing a lot better than Washington has. New York won’t get to celebrate their first victory for long as they and Philly are on a short week.

New York’s first victory didn’t come without much to criticize. Quarterback Daniel Jones was ineffective and completed a subpar 12 of 19 attempts for 112 yards for one touchdown, but he also tossed an interception. Jones showed flashes of talent in 2019 but this year has been a completely different story. The only reason the Giants won’t consider a quarterback switch is because, well, they don’t really have anyone else to turn to. If they had a competent backup, they might have already tried to spice things up.

On the other side of the coin, the Giants defense was a big reason why the team scored their first win under head coach Joe Judge. As a unit, they allowed 86 rushing yards and linebacker Tae Crowder returned Jones interception for a touchdown. Kyle Fackrell continues to be a bright spot for the team, and while he only made three total tackles, he displayed hustle all game long and recorded one of the team’s three sacks.

If the Giants can find a way to squeeze more production out of the quarterback position, they could win a few more games. They might not be playoff material, but they would surely be more competitive week in and week out.
