5 Reason Why New York Giants Could Have NFL's No. 1 Offense in 2014

New York Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said his team could have the No. 1 offense when the season concludes. It's some big words from a player that has yet to play in the regular season, but what if he's right? Check out what I think the Giants need to do in order to hold the crown of the NFL's best offense.

I expect some big numbers from Jennings this year and I hope he proves me right. Now that he is the main guy in New York, he finally gets his chance to show the NFL why his days as a backup are long gone. Jennings has a chance to surprise a lot of people and end up as one of the top 10-15 running backs in the league when all is said and done.

The Giants have been missing a big-play tight end since Jeremy Shockey left the team many years ago. Since then, the G-Men have settled for average- to below-average play from the position. The wide receivers are there and so are the running backs, but a dangerous TE would add another dimension to this new Giants' offense.

The Giants offensive line was okay last year, but it needs to be even better if it wants to be the No. 1 offense in the league. Last season it was No. 15 in QB hits allowed (83) and Manning's life under center was a little more difficult than previous seasons. It's hard for this O-Line because Manning isn't a mobile quarterback that can escape the rush, but great offenses start with a great line and this one has to play top-notch.

Manning said that he is shooting for a 70 percent completion rate this season and if he can hit that then the Giants may have the No. 1 offense. It's always easier said than done, right? I don't think Manning can get to a number that high, but it wouldn't hurt to try. If he can get his percentage between 60 to 65 percent and avoid interceptions, he could be a top QB in the league. But like I said, it's easier said than done.

Beckham Jr. is the man behind the words so it's only right that he proves to be the No. 1 reason why the Giants offense is the best. The former LSU Tiger had 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns in his senior season and he needs to match that production in the pros if the G-Men want to have the best offense in the league. Hakeem Nicks is gone, Beckham Jr. is in and he needs to be the engine behind the Giants' offense in 2014.
