Last week: 16 (-3)
Like the Steelers, the Giants can’t be expected to lose the turnover battle by an average of -3 by game. That would be a -48 turnover margin that would blow the modern day record for a season out of the water. The Giants are probably too talented to even get close to the record. Eli Manning won’t continue throwing an interception on 7.0% of his passes and they won’t continue recovering just 22.2% of their fumbles. If there is any division in football you can win after starting 0-3, it’s the NFC East, but I don’t see that happening. 2nd place isn’t out of the question at all though, with the division having 3 combined wins.

Of course, Peyton Manning has come a long way and (hopefully) gotten a lot tougher since he spent time playing football with his brothers as a little tot, but watching this footage of big brother Cooper making Peyton cry, whine and throw a temper tantrum as a little kid still is quite amusing. The footage […]The post Here’s Peyton Manning crying and whining while playing football...

Sloppy, disorganized, dysfunctional, aggravating, and to an extent, pitiful.
These words were used to describe the New York Giants after their Week 1 performance against the Dallas Cowboys.
After yesterday’s revolting 38-0 loss against the Carolina Panthers, those five words don’t even capture the full extent of what the...
The Hakeem Nicks-Eli Manning rift if it ever did exist is officially no more.
On Wednesday three days after Nicks made headlines for saying “I can’t throw it to myself” in the wake of Sunday’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers coach Tom Coughlin hinted that the comment was vastly overblown. And Manning said he didn’t even need to talk to the wide receiver about any possible...
The ESPN documentary ''The Book of Manning'' shows a new generation of football fans that Peyton and Eli Manning got their athleticism and acumen from good bloodlines as well as their strong work ethic.
The film, narrated by John Goodman, explores how tragedy shaped one of the most influential families in pro sports history and serves as a reminder of how good Archie...
After watching Peyton Manning and his multiple weapons on offense dismantle the Oakland Raiders on MNF, 37-21, you have to wonder how Bill Davis and Chip Kelly might try to disrupt the aging genius this Sunday.
It won't be easy. You may not like Jughead, but you have to admit he is a master mechanic at his position. He will begin studying the Eagles defense today as if he...
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks says “it’s all good” between he and quarterback Eli Manning. Nicks, who was targeted once on Sunday and ended the game against the Carolina Panthers without a catch,
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The hungry Kansas City Chiefs defense must be salivating at the thought of Eli Manning and the turnover-prone New York Giants coming to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
The Chiefs (3-0) lead the league with a plus-9 turnover differential, a big reason why they're undefeated. The Giants, meanwhile, are a league-worst minus-9, a major reason they've yet to...
Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Flacco and Peyton Manning have all won the Super Bowl once. Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger have each won the top prize multiple times. Those are the headliners, the superstars, the marquee players of the NFL. Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks are what the NFL’s marketing machine is built on. They are the Disney World group. Each of them...
The main reaction so far to the 2013 NFL season has been one of surprise. Things to be surprised about:
- The San Francisco 49ers are 1-2 and have the third-worst point-differential in the league.
- The New York Giants and Washington Redskins are 0-3, and the Giants' point differential is worse than any team but the Jacksonville Jaguars.
- Eli Manning has been as bad as that...
Another week gone by and there’s even more commotion to try and sort out around the NFL.
Two of last season’s playoff teams are still left winless, three more are under .500, including your reigning Super Bowl runners up, and the Miami Dolphins are 3-0, if you’ll believe that.
The first three weeks of this NFL season have been something of a whirlwind for most teams around...
New York Giants (0-3) at Kansas City Chiefs (3-0)
The Giants are an NFL worst -9 in turnovers, while the Chiefs are an NFL best +9 in turnovers. Therefore, the Chiefs should dominate the turnover battle and win this game right? Well, that’s not necessarily true. Turnover margin tends to be very inconsistent on a week to week (and year to year) basis. For example, teams who win...
