New York Giants Must Take Advantage Of Next Three At Home
The New York Giants head into their bye week this weekend, but when they return to action in Week 10, they will have a three-game home stretch that will start against the Oakland Raiders. The Giants have been able to weather the storm just a little by winning their past two games, coupled with the rest of the NFC East not being able to create much separation.
The Raiders have a lethal running attack spearheaded by quarterback Terrelle Pryor and running back Darren McFadden. The Giants have played the run well this year, but the only threat they have faced this year with running quarterbacks is Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who ended up injuring his hamstring and didn’t finish their Week 5 matchup.
Their game against the Raiders is a must-win. If they can get to 3-6, they have the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys in their next two at home. It certainly will not be an easy two games, but they are games the Giants can win if they are able to play mistake-free football. It’s a lot easier said than done since the Giants have turned the ball over a ton of times in the first six games.
The Packers are explosive offensively, but they’re still a team who has their issues defensively. Also, this same Giants team beat the Packers 38-10 at home last season, so it can be done. The matchup against the Cowboys is usually a toss-up, so it can go either way. The Cowboys got the better of the first matchup, but that’s only because the Giants committed six turnovers.
An improved offense and an elimination of turnovers should help the Giants win all three games in their upcoming homestand. However, the Giants must go at least 2-1.
