The Giants saved their season with a win over the Redskins, but it’s another must-win game this week against the Falcons before the gauntlet part of their schedule begins.
Week 5 is set up to be the most unpredictable NFL picks week ever and it will either put me in an insurmountable hole or have me ready to make a midseason run in October.
Last week was a bounce-back week for the picks, but this week needs to better in order to climb out of the early-season hole.
The Giants and Redskins meet on Thursday Night Football and one team will head into a 10-day break feeling good at 2-2 and one team’s season will be over at 1-3.
The Giants have to beat the Texans to save their season and prevent a second straight 0-3 start and make sure they aren’t eliminated from the postseason before October.
The Week 2 Picks went about as well as the Giants-Cardinals game and 2014 is beginning to look a lot like 2013 for my picks and the Giants.
In the next seven days the Giants will play two games and have a chance to save their season in one week with two wins. Or a chance to ruin their season with two losses.
The Giants face an “almost must-win game” in Week 2 against the Cardinals, but they aren’t the only team in that position this week.
The Giants opened the 2014 season the same way they opened the 2013 season. The only difference is that they were in Detroit this year and not Dallas.
The Giants were embarrassed on Monday night in Detroit and this season looks like it might be headed the same way last season went.
