NY Giants’ second half of the season prediction
With eight games to go, the NY Giants have a lot of ground to catch up in the second half of the schedule if they are to see this season as a step in the right direction.
Entering a season with such high expectations as they have ever been in Dave Gettleman’s day, the New York Giants have not encountered the hype so far.
Although he ended the first half of the season on a high note with a victory over the Raiders, head coach Joe Judge’s team currently sit at 3-6, last in the NFC East and 13th in the NFC.
No one can see the future, but given what we’ve seen so far, we can put together a vague prediction of how the season may unfold from here on out for the Giants, giving us an idea of the direction this team is taking. in the next season.
Here are the game-by-game predictions for the second half of the NY Giants season
Week 11 @ Tampa Bay (Monday Night Football)
Back to where it all began.
What looks like yesterday, considering how forgettable the Giants have been over the past two seasons, Daniel Jones returns to the site of his first career debut and first career victory at Raymond James Stadium.
However, it won’t be Jameis Winston on the other side.
This time it’s Tom Brady.
Funny enough, this isn’t the first time Brady and Jones have dueled. This is actually the third time around, despite playing in different conferences at one point and different divisions at the moment.
Unsurprisingly, Brady beat the Jones and NY Giants in both games, winning by scores of 35-14 at Foxborough in a game where the Giants were decimated with offensive injuries on Thursday Night Football, and the last year at MetLife Stadium by a much narrower score of 25-23, also on Monday Night Football.
The third time, is it a charm?
If only things were that simple.
With the Buccaneers returning home after suffering back-to-back losses to inferior teams sandwiched around a bye, it’s tough to be their next opponent.
I don’t expect Brady and the Bucs to go all out on offense this week, as their issues without Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski turned out to be very real, and I have some confidence the Giants put in a performance. competitive enough after a week goodbye of their own.
That being said, the Bucs won’t lose a third straight game. Offense and defense both wake up to a prime-time clash and dominate the Giants to get back on track.
Prediction: Bucs 30, Giants 20
