The New York Giants were doomed for failure in 2013 by starting the season with an 0-6 record. In 2014, there are plenty of new faces in the fold, but Big Blue once again laid an egg on opening day, losing to Detroit 35-14 in a Monday Night Football dud.
The last time the New York Giants visited Detroit, the G-men effectively ended the coaching era of Jim Schwartz by knocking the Lions out of NFL playoffs with a 23-20 overtime victory on December 22, 2013.
Fresh off their latest debacle, a 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at the Meadowlands, the New York Giants travel to Detroit for a matchup with playoff desperate Lions.
