Biggest takeaway

The Giants play on Thanksgiving Day! It’s only the fourth time they’ve played over the holidays in the modern era, and the first time against the Dallas Cowboys since a 30-3 loss in 1992. In fact, the Giants haven’t won. on Thanksgiving Day since 1982. And a Monday Night Game with the Cowboys on Sept. 26 is circled as the Giants’ only prime-time game this season, their fewest since 2004. Quite the three-to-five drop usual prime-time matches they were accustomed to in recent years. .

The Giants face a tough start with the Tennessee Titans (12-5 last season), Dallas (12-5), Green Bay Packers (13-4) and Baltimore Ravens (8-9) among the first six opponents. All will enter training camp with rosters that are significantly more talented than those in New York. The saving grace could be that only once in their first six games will the Giants face a hostile opposing crowd – in Week 1 against the Titans.

revenge game

Cowboys at the Giants on Monday Night Football Week 3. Quarterback Daniel Jones and the Giants seek revenge in prime time. Jones is 0-8 as a primetime starter, and New York has lost its last 10 night contests dating back to 2018, when it beat the San Francisco 49ers and QB Nick Mullens on Monday Night. Soccer. Did we even mention that the Giants were swept last season by the Cowboys and lost nine of the last 10 meetings to rival NFC East? This is New York’s chance to prove that the era of doormats is a thing of the past.

What bettors think

Bettors have the Giants’ win total at 7, which seems ambitious. That would be a three-game improvement from last season’s 4-13 record. Is the chance that Jones stays healthy (he hasn’t in three seasons yet) and a new coaching staff really enough to get the four wins it would take to hit the top?

Bold prediction

The Giants will win twice as many games after the bye as they did before their Week 9 break. That’s two wins in their first eight games and four in their last nine. It’s a byproduct of the tough early schedule, easier post-bye matchups (starting with home games against the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions), and the time it takes to acclimate. to a new coaching staff.
