Just getting over the hump of the NFL season, and teams are beginning to see the reality of where they stand in the league. Majority of the records are close, so it is difficult to count certain teams out. Some teams are just impossible to overlook, like the unexpected Dallas Cowboys. Another team you can’t count out is the New York Giants.
The team’s star wide-receiver, Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t have plans of counting his team out. After Week 10, Odell is counting his team in. After beating the Bengals, he told a reporter that he and his team were looking forward to February 5th, in Houston. This is the showdown. The Super Bowl. He’s even called his teammates a “Super Bowl defense”. It is still early, but there may be some truth in his statement.
If you go back through the history of the Giants and their past two Super Bowl titles, it hasn’t been pretty. They didn’t have a perfect record or obvious look for the championship. But, they did have heart. This is the most important ingredient is winning games, or winning at anything. Believing in yourself that you can do it. At the moment, the Giants’ record isn’t spectacular, but they could still go into a wild card game for the playoffs.
Based on records, the Giants next step from a wild card would most likely be against the hot Dallas Cowboys (8-1). And with the Seahawks (6-2-1) having the potential to go to Houston, the Giants would have to battle them for another ring. Regardless of their streak, the Cowboys are definitely beatable. And there is no doubt in our minds that Seattle can be beat. The Giants’ 2007 team entered the playoffs as a wild card, with a 10-6 record. And, they left with the Vince Lombardi.
