Certainly a game between two teams that have a won-loss record below .500 has to be one of those games that probably won’t generate anywhere near the interest it would have had the Giants won last week against the Cowboys.
However, if you’re one of those people who likes to look at the glass as being half-full, then a fitting theme for this week’s game, in my opinion, is the “Redemption Bowl.”
No, neither team has a realistic chance at making the playoffs, despite what the math says. Each club needs far too many things to happen in order for them to be playing in January, given how the NFL playoff seeding is currently taking shape.
So no, it won’t be that kind of redemption, at least not for the Giants.
Instead, there are players on both sides that, for whatever the reason, haven’t had a solid season, who will be looking to prove that they are still viable contributors and are worthy of a larger or return role in the team’s plans.
So without any further delay, here is the list of five Giants to watch in this week’s “Redemption Bowl.”
