New York Giants
The New York Giants (3-2) travel down the New Jersey Turnpike to meet their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1), on Sunday night. The G-men dispatched the pesky Atlanta Falcons this past week to move above the .500 mark, while the Birds squeaked by the St, Louis Rams to remain tied with the Dallas Cowboys atop the division.
Odell Beckham Jr. made his NFL debut a memorable one, catching a go-ahead 15-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning with 10:02 left to lead the Giants to a 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, extending their winning streak to three games.
Whatever elixir the New York Giants drank between weeks two and three of the NFL regular season should be saved for future use. Not only did the team even its record at 2-2 over the past two weeks; they also have become healthier than we have seen in several seasons. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons come into MetLife Stadium sporting the same 2-2 record but with a fistful of question marks, especially across the offensive line.
The New York Giants have certainly not seen a return on their investment in Odell Beckham, Jr. Beckham, selected 12th overall in the May NFL draft from LSU, has not played in a game this season, something that he hopes changes this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
This Week 4 NFC East game felt like a must-win for both teams. The Giants played like it, dominating in a 45-14 win. The Redskins looked overmatched.
