The New York Giants lost their 3rd straight game on Monday night, 40-24 to the Indianapolis Colts. New York was dominated from the start, scoring three points in the 1st half. Andrew Luck threw for 350 yards for the fifth road game in a row, an NFL record. The Giants will now travel to Seattle to face the defending Super Bowl Champion Seahawks.

For the Jets, the Pressure’s On

Let’s be honest. Calvin Johnson is the best wide receiver in the game. He’s got the height (6’5), the speed (runs 4.35 40-yard dash), and of course his insane numbers in the NFL (68 TDs, 9,657 yards in 7+ seasons) that prove he is the best. Week in and week out we see him make spectacular catches in double, triple coverage that would be unimaginable for anyone else. Even Rex Ryan, the coach who adores the “island” corner or man-to-man press coverage on the outside knows that isn’t possible against this Lion.

The Giants defense is a unit that may have gotten overlooked at times last season due to the astounding number of turnovers on the opposite side of the ball. However, the defense got better as the year went on and ended the season on a high note, surrendering only six points to the Redskins in a season finale win. While the season as a whole was a disappointment, players on the defense are looking to improve from last year’s effort to make this year’s group one that will send shockwaves throughout the league.

New Names, Same Game

For the first time in the Jerry Reese era, there’s a free agent frenzy in New York. The cash-strapped Giants cleared enough cap space to improve the offensive line, pluck one of the top free agents on the market from Denver, and totally revamp their secondary and return game. For Giants fans, this isn’t the norm.
