This Sunday, the New York Giants are back in action against the daunting defense of the St. Louis Rams. Sports betting site MTS notes the G-Men opened as five-point road underdogs, and that has since climbed to seven.
This has been a terrible year for the Giants and, arguably, their recent two-game winning streak has only made it worse. Just when it looked like the Giants were bad enough that change was going to sweep through the organization, the team went and gave everyone (possibly false) hope for the future by beating up on the Titans (36-7) and Redskins (24-13).
Eli Manning has passed for four touchdowns and over 500 yards in the past two weeks, and is trying to convince East Rutherford that he is still a franchise QB. At 33-years-old, Eli is no spring chicken. The fact that he’s considerably younger than Peyton – who continues to be one of the best pivots in the league – makes Eli seem deceptively young. But, in reality, it’s time for the organization to start thinking about its next franchise QB.
