Eli Manning leads this high powered offense
To me, this is a classic example of a fast starting team that really isn’t all that good. A lot of people are really high on the Giants because of the way they have been beating their opponents.
They have a point differential of 56 which is the second highest in the NFC; they are undefeated in conference and division play so what’s not to love?
Well, let’s start with the fact that they’ve beaten the Bears, Texans, Lions, Cowboys and Seahawks respectively. That is by no means an impressive resume. Granted, they just beat Seattle easily by 34 on the road which does show that they are not to be taken lightly.
The Giants WILL make the playoffs though because of their remaining schedule, the only teams that pose a threat are the Eagles (both home and away), and the Packers. Even though it may seem like I’m bagging on the Giants, which I am to some extent, I still think they are top five in their conference, just not the best.
