The New York Giants - surprisingly enough - sit alone in the cellar at 0-2. The Giants would be much better off with an upgrade at one of the tackle spots, especially at left tackle. That team is the Giants. Manning is no stranger to regular season success and if it weren't for his two big upsets over Tom Brady in Super Bowls, the Giants would have unquestionably gotten rid of Peyton's younger brother a long time ago.
And in order for the Giants (0-2) to avoid facing those historically long odds, they need a victory against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, an environment in which NY hasn't won in four years. A Darren Sproles fumble on a punt return and a Jake Elliott missed field goal gave the Chiefs the extra momentum to take control of the game The Giants also had themselves a not so delightful week as they let up a punt return touchdown to rookie Jamal Agnew and Brad Wing just looked flat out awful. Darby is easily the Eagles' best corner and would have been the best option to cover Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. But if Manning gets even adequate protection, he could have a field day against a very banged-up Eagles secondary.
Another reason not to count out the Giants is due to their tremendous defense.

Jason Pierre-Paul is not one of those people. Fortunately for the Giants, they still have fourteen more games to prove that they are. NY will have a chance to pick up a few wins before they break, but after the bye, expect them to finish their season strong. In short, it's unlikely the Giants offensive line improves this season.
The offensive line play has been abysmal, with Flowers highlighting the struggles.
With his team reeling after back-to-back losses to the Cowboys and Lions - one more dispiriting than the other - and with his offense in the kind of disarray never before seen in the Eli Manning era, McAdoo abruptly has moved to the epicenter of his team's early-season dysfunction. They went 6-2 at Lincoln Financial Field in 2016. Since 2007, 83 teams have started 0-2, and only nine have made the playoffs.
Looking at the results of Week 2, it's hard to argue with Jenkins. Only three teams since the current playoff format was established have reached the postseason after starting the season with three consecutive losses.
He relied heavily on his previous stint on "The Apprentice" in which he'd tell participants they'd been eliminated from the competition by telling them, "You're fired". He was selected as the New York State sportswriter of the year in 2015 and 2011 by the National Sports Media Association. Destiny Vaeao is also not playing (Elijah Qualls will be playing at his place). If they beat the Eagles, and especially if they can score more than 20 points, it might be time for a party. They have lost three in a row and four of their last five in the Linc, where the Eagles will play for the first time this season.
