Could the Giants start 0-2 at home?
We all heard the stat before the Packers took the field against the Bears. "In the Super Bowl era, only two teams have started the season 0-2 at home and still made the playoffs."
While the game against the Buccaneers initially looked like an easy win for Big Blue, with Tampa Bay fresh off a solid victory over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, it may be prove to be a bit more difficult.
Doug Martin looks like the versatile back the Buccaneers hoped they were getting when they drafted him in the first round.
Josh Freeman was comfortable against Carolina, and the defense held Newton to a mere 10 points.
As usual, though, we must not count out the Giants. Eli Manning is an elite quarterback and he has elite weapons on the outside.
In this one, the Giants front four wreaks havoc and is the deciding factor in a Giants win.
