Giants Preview Capsule
NEW YORK GIANTS (11-6)
New faces: WR Brandon Marshall, TE Evan Engram, DT Dalvin Tomlinson, PK Aldrick Rosas, QB Geno Smith, OL D.J. Fluker, TE Rhett Ellison.
Key losses: DT Jonathan Hankins, RT Marshall Newhouse, PK Robbie Gould.
Strengths: This is going to be one of best defenses in league, with S Landon Collins, DEs Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul, and CB Janoris Jenkins looking very good in camp. QB Eli Manning has more options than Odell Beckham Jr. to target.
There are only four players on the Giants’ roster younger than Landon Collins.
No one has had a greater impact over the last two games, a pair of victories for the Giants during their three-game winning streak that has rescued their season and put them back into contention for the playoffs.
Eli Manning is coming off a banner season with 35 touchdowns and just 14 picks. He's healthy and his command of the West Coast-style offense is no longer a concern. Often overlooked, Manning's durability displayed during his remarkable Ironman streak, 194 consecutive games and counting, is perhaps his greatest quality. That allows for backup Ryan Nassib's continued growing pains heading into the final season of his rookie contract.
