N.Y. Giants vs. Cleveland Browns preview: Can Big Blue contain Brandon Weeden?

N.Y. Giants vs. Cleveland Browns preview: Can Big Blue contain Brandon Weeden?
BY SAM HITCHCOCK

COMMENTARY

It’s funny how the universe works. Even though the unanimous opinion is that the New York Jets have a much easier schedule than the grueling slate the Giants got assigned, that is definitely not the case this week. In the NFL, slipping below .500 is very treacherous and, with both the Giants and Jets 2-2, both teams are running that risk.

The Giants get an alleviating elixir to push them ahead in the NFC East division in the form of the Cleveland Browns for Week 5. In contrast, the Jets may as well have been handed a cyanide pill. I am referring to the Houston Texans, but Santonio Holmes’ injury is deathly as well.

The Giants would appear to have a win giftwrapped this week, but Big Blue has a checkered history in the past decade of blowing games where they are heavily favored. One of the most notable implosions is the 2008 defeat to the Brownies, 35-14, when the Giants were coming off their Super Bowl win in ‘07.
