New York Giants

The New York Giants have a chance to win on Sunday as travel to play a Cincinnati team that has just lost its rookie sensation quarterback Joe Burrow. It is going to be pretty hard for this team to get back up from the gut-punch of losing your starting quarterback for the year.

After that, they might not win another game until week 17. These NY Giants have to travel to Seattle who is a team looking to get back on track. They then host Arizona then Cleveland. Both of those teams are fighting for division leads and will be more than motivated to face an underachieving team.

They travel to Baltimore who is also chasing within their division and finish against the Dallas Cowboys. This has a chance to be the Sunday Night Football flex where these two teams could be fighting for the Division crown.

The Giants were recently in the headlines as they fired former Dallas Cowboys player and coach Marc Colombo. There are also some reports where offensive coordinator Jason Garrett could also be relieved of his coaching duties.

Dysfunction within the team is never good so if the Giants happen to find themselves in a situation where the locker room drama spills onto the field, consider that another break for the Dallas Cowboys.
