The message has been the same all season: Improve each week. Flush the last game. Move on to the next game.
The NY Football Giants have done exactly that. In Joe Judge’s own words, “We’re looking to go 1-0 each week.” And the players, like Leonard Williams, echo that approach.
The Giants enter December with five games remaining on their schedule against five tough opponents.
Here’s the good news: the Giants themselves are being viewed as a tough opponent.
Seahawks coach, Pete Carroll, spoke of the Giants as a “tough, committed football team.” The Giants started 0-5, but are 4-2 since mid-October. Conversely, Seattle started 5-0, but are 3-3 since the same time.
It doesn’t get any easier for the Giants after the Seahawks. Arizona (6-5, 3-3 since mid-October) and Cleveland (8-3, 4-2 since mid-October) come to MetLife Stadium the following two weeks. After Christmas, the Giants take a short trip to Baltimore (a surprising 6-5, but 2-4 since mid-October). The Giants finish against Dallas (3-8, 1-5 since mid-October). So, in the spirit of looking for improvement each week, only Cleveland (4-2) is playing winning football since mid-October.
When you break down the Giants’ remaining opponents, Seattle will be a true test of just how improved the team is.
As Safety, Logan Ryan stated this week in his media session that followed the win over the Bengals:
“It’s a one game at a time season.”
