The New York Giants rise to 11 wins came about as the team saw major improvement to their defense. They were sixth against the run and held opponents to just 17.8 points per game which was second best in the NFL. Work is still needed in pass defense as the team ranked 23rd but it was much better than in previous seasons where the Giants were ranked near the bottom of the league. The 2017 schedule opens with a road game at Dallas and New York will play three of their first four games on the road. New York has a good pass rush and their man to man coverage in the secondary ranks amongst the best in the league.

On offense the concern has been about the declining arm strength shown by starting quarterback Eli Manning. He completed 63% of his passes for 4027 yards with 26 touchdowns and 16 picks. The lack of zip in passes caused many of his interceptions. Eli Manning figures to not get much help from a run game that average only 3.5 yards per carry which ranked near the bottom of the NFL at 30th in the league. Odell Beckham Jr. had 10 touchdowns and 1367 yards receiving last year and is the main target for Manning. If the running game improves this is a Super Bowl contender. The Giants drafted a running back in the fourth round in Wayne Gallman who averaged 4.9 a carry last year with Clemson.
