New York Giants riding a rare wave of momentum

By Martin Rogers

The New York talk shows have been crackling with energy, the mics and phone lines brought to life, finally spared from chat dominated by doom and gloom.

Over the past week, the Big Apple has allowed itself to bathe in newfound, possibly fleeting, NFL glory. A collective Big Blue grin has floated over from the Meadowlands and spread across much of the city.

Imagine, just imagine — but whisper it softly — what might happen if the Giants could actually win another game?

All it took was one nail-biter of a victory, facilitated by an enlightened “go for the win” call of marvelous impudence, lit up by a masterful sideline pep talk.

And everything feels different.

Forlorn grumpiness has given way to genuine excitement. Giants fans are remembering that it’s not so bad being, you know, a Giants fan after all, and don’t need any encouragement to jump aboard the blue train.

Suddenly, head coach Brian Daboll seems like the kind of fearless leader to overcome those years of painful perseverance. Daniel Jones, the type of character to respond to an urgently-voiced challenge. Saquon Barkley, a superstar ball-carrier befitting the big city.

If the hype all feels a bit excessive, so be it. Because we must forgive New Yorkers their overexcitement, given that there has been so little to get uplifted by in recent years. 

The last postseason game at MetLife Stadium was in early 2014 – because that’s when New York hosted the Super Bowl. The Giants have played only one home playoff game (2011 season) since the venue was rebuilt. The Jets haven’t had any in that span.

The Giants’ current status of 1-0 is the first time they have boasted a winning record at any time since 2016. New York is a FOX Bet -133 favorite at home to the Carolina Panthers this weekend (Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX), and that doesn’t happen too often either.
