2020 has been a confusing, disappointing, and of course, an unexpected year. To which the same could be said for the NFC East. A division that was predicted to come down to the Cowboys and Eagles has all but gone a different direction.
New York Giants:
Starting the season 0-5, all looked lost for the Giants and bigger questions arose. “Do they take a QB with the 2nd overall pick?” “What else needs to happen for Dave Gettleman to be fired?” “Why did they hire this clown Joe Judge?” And just when it seemed all hope was lost a “Giant” change occurred within the organization.
New York’s defense rose to the challenge and started playing at an elite level. Following suit, the non-existent run game was a problem thanks to the offensive line stepping up. Incorporate Daniel Jones and Wayne Gallman’s success, the Giants have been able to win five of their last seven games.
Their most recent win coming against the highly-touted Seattle Seahawks with Colt McCoy at the helm for Big Blue. Oh, the game was also played in Seattle, not the easiest place to play.
With the Giants playing at such a high level the whispers of “Tank for Trevor” have all but gone. Now fans are holding their breath for the healthy return of Daniel Jones. And rightfully so! With their final four games coming against Arizona, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Dallas they will definitely need their young Quarterback. Can the New York Giants do the unexpected and win the division after losing their first five games?
