Notable Remaining Games:
@ New England
@ San Francisco
@ New Orleans
vs. Green Bay
@ New York Jets
I would call the Giants the worst best team in the NFL this season.
They have been winning games, but they have been making it way too close for comfort in almost every game. They struggled early versus Miami, and they have been plagued by injuries—Giants players just love to tear their ACLs. Regardless, Eli Manning has actually been elite this year. If Aaron Rodgers didn't exist, he would have my vote, and that of many others as well, for MVP.
The Giants face a very, very, very tough schedule ahead of them. Luckily for them, they have won early in the season to help out their chances for the playoffs. After going to Foxborough this week, the Giants have to face both Green Bay and the 49ers (a combined record of 13-1) on the road. They also have to play New Orleans in the Super Dome and Dallas in the huge stadium. They also have the Jets in a "road" game.
The Giants need Eli Manning to stay where he is right now, at the top of his game, in order to make the playoffs. Also, the return of some of their injured players could fare well for them as the season progresses.
