Check out KidBlue’s reaction to the Giants win over the Eagles! ^
That’s the phrase I’m going to use from now on while the Giants are in the race for the NFC East. This game was a statement game for the Giants as they snap an 8 game stronghold on the team over the span for 4 years! Not only does this win put the team a half game behind first place, but it also clinches at least a split in divisional games won as the Giants are 3-2, (last game of the season will be against DAL).
Are the Giant the best team in the division? So far, I would say hell yes! Cleary this is the most complete team on the roster with a stout defense and a developing offense. This really tells to how well of a job Joe Judge is doing in his first year as a head coach with New York. The New York Giants were at an automatic disadvantage this season as they are in the 2nd year of their rebuild and hired a whole new coaching staff. This team did not have the luxury of building a chemistry with rookie camp, training camp, or preaseason games. They just had to roll with the punches an try to adjust and adapt on the fly. As the first 5 or so games were just a disgusting product to watch, you could tell this team is starting to find their identity.
I predict the Giants to win this division but very narrowly. They can’t be in competition with Philly due to the nagging tie they have as that will give them the nod to make the playoffs. I project the Cowboys have about 1 winnable game on the roster, the Eagles 3 and Washington 3. I project the Giants to also have about 3 winnable games as well. It could be 4 as I think we match up well with the Cards.
What do you guys think? Are the Giants the best team in the NFC Least?
