5 New York Giants Who Need to Have a Big Second Half of the Season
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports
Can the New York Giants rebound from a 2-6 start and win the NFC East for their loyal fans?

Given the way the first half of the season has gone for teams in the NFC East, it seems like it's been more of a race to see who finishes the year with the highest draft pick than it does for the division crown.

By default, however, someone has to win the division, and the New York Giants, who prior to Week 9’s games are just two games behind the division-leading Dallas Cowboys, still think they have a shot of climbing up the standings ladder despite a 2-6 record at the halfway mark.

“We still have a chance. I believe in our coaches, I believe in our players, and I expect us to continue to battle and get back in this race,” said Giants general manager Jerry Reese during his annual bye week press conference.

“You can’t count anybody out in our division right now halfway through the season," he added. "I think everybody is still in the race and we’re happy to be in it and fortunate to be in it and we’ll definitely continue to work hard and battle through this thing and make the best of it.”

There’s not much room for error, though, as of their last seven opponents—the Giants play the Washington Redskins twice—the Green Bay Packers, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions all have winning records.

It promises to be a wild second half for the NFC East, and if the Giants are to accomplish their goal of getting back into the thick of things, they’ll need a solid effort from top to bottom, especially from the following players/units.
