Team Analysis

The Giants are a very tough team to predict this season. In the best case scenario, the Giants could run away with the division and be Superbowl contenders. In the worst case scenario, the Giants could finish as a sub-500 team. There are two key factors for the Giants this year outside of Eli Manning. David Wilson needs to live up to his first round billing, and the defensive line needs to be one of the best in football. If Wilson doesn't step up as a premier back, the offense could struggle with only Eli to rely upon. On defense, if the line doesn't stuff the run and get to the quarterback, a weak secondary and pathetic linebacking corps will be exposed. Luckily, the line has the potential to be the best in football, as long as Tuck and JPP can get healthy. The two of them combined with rookie DaMontre Moore could make playing the Giants an absolute nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. The Giants have a ton of question marks, but also a ton of potential, which is why I think they currently have the best shot at winning the division.
