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.
