3. New York Giants

The Giants made plenty of notable moves this offseason, including signing quarterback Daniel Jones to a massive four-year, $160 million contract and acquiring Darren Waller from the Las Vegas Raiders.

The move to get Waller was shocking, yet big in possibly helping Jones become ever more comfortable as a passer. The former Pro Bowl tight end has reportedly excelled in training camp this season -- even to the point of having to sit out of multiple plays during practice because he was getting targeted too much.

With the Giants not having a set WR1, Waller should immediately fill that void.

Overall, New York has a very solid team heading into 2023 on both sides of the ball. Running back Saquon Barkley is back on a one-year deal, and the defense has many bright young stars.

Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence II, outside linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux, defensive end Azeez Ojulari, and safety Xavier McKinney have shown plenty of promise on defense in New York so far. The team also drafted cornerback Deonte Banks with the 24th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

The Giants have an up-and-coming defense with playmakers like Waller and Barkley on offense. Jones had a great first season under head coach Brian Daboll. If he can continue to improve as a passer, New York could finish with an even better record this year than they did in 2022.
