Nobody wants to play the New York Giants
(Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports)

Nobody wants to play the New York Giants. Before everyone calls me crazy I’ll explain why. The Giants play hard-nosed football. Therefore, all these pretty teams like the Seattle Seahawks hate playing a team like the Giants. I told everyone the Giants had a chance, you all are going to listen now.

Nobody Wants to Play The New York Giants.

On Sunday the Giants pulled off the biggest upset of the year, being ten point underdogs. It was also Seattle’s first loss at home all season. The NFC East isn’t looking too bad now, is it? Nevertheless, There are many reasons why the Giants won the game. However, only one was the biggest reason. The Giants have an elite defense.

Patrick Graham, the Giants defensive coordinator, has got this unit playing at the highest level. That high-octane Seattle offense was held to just 12 points. DK Metcalf, who prior to this game was on a tear, got held in check only having five catches for 80 yards. Which produced his third-lowest fantasy output of the season. Russell Wilson had only one touchdown and two turnovers.

The New York Giants Defense is Elite.

Seattle, a Top 5 offense on the season, was held to its lowest scoring output of the year. Thus, the reason why teams should be scared to play the Giants. They want the teams that get punched in the mouth and roll over not the ones that keep fighting.

However, The Giants also play some of the best keep-away in the NFL. They have cut down on turnovers, have run for over 100 yards in seven straight games, and get stops on defense very frequently. Head Coach Joe Judge has gotten the best out of his guys.

In this very entertaining NFC East, The Giants will reign supreme. However, ask any team in the playoffs if they want to go to New York for a first-round matchup with the Giants. Nobody wants that fight. However, I told everyone the Giants have a chance to beat these teams in the toughest stretch of the year. So far, they passed the first test with flying colors.
