The New York Giants will look to redeem themselves for the 2018 season after going 3-13 in 2017. This was a team that finished second in the NFC East in 2016 (11-5) with the same personnel but it all came crumbling down just as fast as it went up. Fingers can be pointed at the inability of Ben McAdoo, the injuries to Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall, the lack of depth on the defense, or just bad execution. However, 2018 brings a new hope, but there is still a chance we may not see an improvement.
The Giants are banking on the health of Beckham, a rookie running back named Saquon Barkley, and hopefully, a rejuvenated Eli Manning and defense. Beckham will provide a few amazing catches over the season while Barkley will hope to be the second coming of greatness. The defense will look to improve upon their 31st ranking but it all may be for nothing.
The New York Giants drew the short end of the stick when the schedules were announced. The Giants will head into the 2018 season knowing they have seven games against teams who went to the playoffs in 2017. And, it gets worse. The Giants will also face the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys, and Indianapolis Colts, who are all expected to be contenders.
Here’s a look into how the Giants may become the next team to go 0-16.
