Week 2: vs Buffalo Bills

All QB vs BUF

FBG says: Bad matchup. Eli Manning is going to get a lot of hate for his performance, and the team brought in Daniel Jones once the game got out of hand. The reality is that Manning with no Golden Tate and no Odell Beckham did not play that poorly. He completed 68% of his passes with most of the offense running through tight end Evan Engram who had a monster game with 11 receptions for 116 yards. Manning did not turn the ball over, and the offensive line did a decent job in protection with just one sack against one of the best secondaries in football. This is an offense that while they had drives stall out because of penalties or ill-timed incompletions, exceeded most of our expectations. The Bills secondary continued its dominant performance that we saw last season where it was one of the best secondaries in football allowing just 179 yards per game. The Bills secondary is led by shut-down corner Tre'Davious White and second-year player Levi Wallace who continues his tremendous play from last season. If there is a weakness in this secondary it is slot corner Taron Johnson who struggled last week in defending Jamison Crowder who caught 14 passes. The Bills safeties are also top-notch in Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. The pass rush for the Bills continues to be a dominant force as they got to Sam Darnold four times last week. All-in-all this is one of the top defenses in football and should give the Giants all they can handle this week.

2019 Week 1 vs DAL (30 / 44 / 306 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)

Eli Manning made a lot of good throws in this game and kept his team moving the chains for the most part but the Giants weren't able to finish several drives which ended up costing them. Manning was accurate and decisive from the pocket. He knew where to go with the ball and had Barkley to keep the Dallas defense honest. His offensive line looked much improved compared to last year and he had enough time to survey the field on most of his attempts. Manning looked to Engram throughout this game to move the ball and he him with a quick seam route to convert in the first quarter. He finished this drive with a rollout play to the left which completely caught the Cowboys off guard as Engram was alone in the flat for an easy score. Manning had a few balls that fluttered into the air or were off target that could have been picked off but he got away with them. Manning made two errors in short situations that really hurt the Giants. He was called for intentional grounding on 3rd and 1 after a great drive stalled near the redzone. Manning later attempted a rollout and scramble for first down on 4th & 1 but he looked extremely slow and was tackled well short of the marker. He did manage to stay on his feet on one miraculous play, picking himself back up and hitting Latimer deep along the sideline after a potential sack was evaded. The Giants passing game was predictable, with so few proven weapons to threaten Dallas with. He almost hit Shepard on a slant in redzone for a touchdown but the coverage was just good enough to break up the play. Overall, Manning had to pass too much to keep up with Dallas, it forced them into several bad situations and they lacked the consistency on offense to score most drives. Barkley was somewhat under utilized and the pass protection has been improved so there is hope that the Giants can be marginally better this year but it might be only a matter of time before Jones is inserted into the starting line up.

Giants | Eli Manning to start while team is in contention (Sat Sep 7, 06:28 AM) - Multiple New York Giants officials have said that QB Eli Manning will remain the starter as long as the team is in the playoff race.

Our View: That may not be that long. The Giants have to get off to a winning start and stay on that track if Manning is going to stay the starter. We just don't see that happening for them, especially with their current roster construct and the division they play in. Rookie first-round pick Daniel Jones should be starting around the midway point of the season if not sooner.
