Following a crushing defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles, Eli Manning and the Giants will be out for blood this weekend during their home game against the Cleveland Browns.
We feel sorry for what the Browns are about to experience.
New York lost 19-17 to the Eagles on Sunday Night Football, with Lawrence Tynes falling short on his last-second field goal attempt that would have given the Giants the victory.
With the defeat, the Giants moved to 2-2 on the season, with their losses coming to the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys, two divisional opponents, and their two victories versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers.
Losing to divisional foes is never fun, especially when you have a clear chance to win the game late.
Manning had another productive night despite the loss, throwing for 309 yards and two touchdowns. Both Victor Cruz and Domenik Hixon had over 100 yards receiving, with Cruz tacking on a touchdown.
The running game was in shambles though, as Ahmad Bradshaw returned and only had 39 yards on 13 carries, while Andre Brown went for 14 yards on five rushes. Meanwhile, the Eagles racked up 191 yards on the ground.
Even though that loss was surely tough to take, the Giants are in a great spot to bounce back this weekend against the winless Browns.
Cleveland has hung tough in practically all of their defeats this season, but New York will be going for the kill and will have the home crowd squarely behind them. The opening NFL odds have Tom Couglin’s team favored by anywhere from 10.5 to 13 points. Look out for a lot of line movement in this one leading up to Sunday.
The spread may be extremely high, but the Giants are primed for a monster day.
