New York Giants: 5 Things We Learned About the G-Men This Week
Even though we're only eight games into the season, the Giants are starting to show their true colors, and we're learning exactly who this team really is.
This really was a huge win for the G-Men, and the Eli Manning led team is standing tall heading into the second half of their schedule.
This New York Giants Will Find a Way to Win
No matter what's going wrong, no matter how many things are stacked against them, this NYG team will get wins.
If the G-Men can keep this momentum going, I don't see why they would stop finding ways to win and ultimately take the division.
Injures Don't Matter to G-Men

No matter who goes down for the New York Giants due to injury--they've been finding a way to make it work.
The G-Men were nine-point underdogs heading into Sundays' contest. Hakeem Nicks, Ahmad Bradshaw and David Baas were all inactive, but the Giants still pulled off the victory.
Beating the New England Patriots without three of your best players is pretty impressive no matter how you look at it.
The New York Giants Still Cause Tom Brady Problems
Tom Brady was an unanimous MVP last season, but he looked didn't look the part against the New York Giants this past Sunday.
The G-Men's defense sacked Brady twice, as well as picking him off two times as well.
The Giants defense bothered Brady back in the 2007 Super Bowl, and they repeated that effort en route to a 24-20 victory this year.
Eli Manning Is Elite
It was talked about all season, but now it's finally official—Eli Manning is an elite quarterback.
Even though Eli can be one of the most frustrating quarterbacks to watch at times, he's truly taking the next step this season.
The last time I've seen Eli play this well for a consistent stretch is when the New York Giants won the Super Bowl in 2007.
Let's see where the rest of the season goes.

People may have been calling for Coughlin's head after the back-to-back playoff losses, but the 6-2 start this season might quit those rumors.
There's still a lot of football left to be played, but the New York Giants are sitting pretty in the NFC East.
If the Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Chicago Bears on Monday, the G-Men's chances of making the playoffs go up that much more.
