2016 NEW YORK GIANTS REGULAR SEASON
It was an interesting year for the New York Football Giants as they tried to work towards winning another Super Bowl. For the Giants, it was an up and down season. In the first two weeks of the regular season, the G-Men went on a two-game winning streak. Then, in weeks 3 through 7, that all went downhill. New York would only win 2 of their next 5 games. At the bye week, they had a 4-3 record and barley hanging on in the NFC East. Once their week 8 bye had finally concluded, the Giants’ went on their own winning streak. From week 9 through 12, Big Blue would go on a four-game winning streak.
The streak ended on week 13 on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers, they still felt good about the remaining four games of the season. During the final quarter of the season, they would win three of the last four games. Their final record was 11-5 record and finished in second place in the NFC East.
2016 NEW YORK GIANTS RUN IN THE PLAYOFFS
Now, that the regular season has concluded, it was time to begin the real season… the 2016-17 NFL Playoffs. In the NFC bracket, the New York Football Giants, who are ranked number 5 in the conference will be going up against the Green Bay Packers who were ranked number 4. For the Giants, this is the first playoff game since they won their last Super Bowl title back in 2011. In a valiant effort, the Green Bay Packers defeated the New York Giants 38-13 ending their run at another title. For 34-year-old Quarterback Eli Manning, he had a good season. He completed 63 percent of his passes, passed for 4,027 yards, threw for 26 touchdowns, and only had 16 interceptions. Not to mention the sacks and fumbles.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE NEW YORK GIANTS IN THE 2017 SEASON
Head coach Ben Macadoo is in his second season as the Giants coach. Entering the 2017 season, Macadoo is looking to bring the G-Men a sixth Vince Lombardi trophy come February of 2018. However, if the Giants want to return to the postseason, they will have to complete probably one of the hardest schedules in the NFL this season. Like last year, the Giants’ bye week is in week 8. But, in the first seven games of the year, four of them are on the road. I am predicting that the Giants will have an 8-8 season and barley miss the playoffs.
