Week 14 vs The New Orleans Saints

This game ended up being a force win for the Giants. QB Daniel Jones had a solid day as he completed 17/29 passes for 261 yards and 3 TDs. Oddly, HB CEH actually outpaced starting HB Saquon Barkley as CEH rushed for 93 yards and 1 TD compared to Saquon's 91 yards and no TDs. Defense was spear headed by JLaw and his 2 sacks. Giants win 35-14.


Week 15 vs The Houston Texans

HB Saquon Barkley and WR Deebo Samuel both carried the load for the G-men on offense. Barkley had 147 yards and 2 TDs, while Deebo had 4 receptions for 123 yards and 2 TDs as well. JLaw continued his monster season with another 3 sacks and a FF. 3 INTs were also added for the defense as we grab another win 41-21.


Week 16 vs The WFT

In a redemption game, the G-Men got off to a massive early lead, mostly due to the play of the defense who had 4 INTs and a FF in the game. The Giants offense continued to do what they had to against a defense of this caliber and took care of the ball and milked the clock as much as possible. It was a good thing because the Giants 25 point lead fell to 11 points rather quickly. Luckily, the Giants were able to hold on and snag the 42-31 win.


Week 17 vs The Chicago Bears

Afer disconnecting while the Giants were up pretty big in the 2nd Quarter. The game restarted and the GIants actually started off really slow.... keeping the Bears in the game a lot longer than they probably deserved to be. Eventually the defense and the offense clicked the and G-Men were able to pull away and hold off a last ditch effort by the Bears. Giants went on to win the game 31-17 and in doing so, finished the season with a 14-2 record. Sadly, it was only good enough for the 5th seed in the playoffs.



WC Round vs The Packers

This game was a defensive battle throughout the game. Luckily for the Giants, the Packers decided to throw 4 INTs in the game. If they didn't, the outcome would have definitely been different as the Giants offense actually struggled in the game. Giants grab a W and move on to the divisional round after a 23-21 win.


Divisional Round vs The WFT

In the 3rd meeting of the year, this game was a lot similar to the first meeting of the year where the giants actually lost to the WFT by a score of 15-17. The defense on both sides of the ball were on full display throughout. Neither team was really able to get anything going on offense and both rushing attacks were essentially non existent. It came down to a game sealing 101 yard pick six by Malachi McNeal with 20 seconds left that gave the game to the Gmen. Final score was 25-13.


Conference Championship vs Saints

Unlike the Giants last game, this game was all about the rushing attacks as both team running back did a great job carrying their teams in this game. The deciding factor in this game much like the majority of the regular season was the Giants killer defense. The Giants defense was able to pick off Saints QBs 4 times in the game. At the end the Giants became victorious: 28-17


Super Bowl vs Bengals

Plain and simple, the Giants basically just ran out of steam. A couple of plays just didn't go their way and the Giants defense just could not hold up against the speedy bengal WRs. Giants end up losing 17-45. All and all it was a great season by the Giants who made the SB for the 2nd time in 7 years. Giants will retool in the offseason and make another push for another SB.
