Can the Detroit the Big Blue pass rush and offensive line handle Jason Pierre-Paul ? Even if they add a rookie tackle at the top of the draft
The Detroit will be fighting for their playoff lives, and the New York could still be in contention for a division crown. This will matter just as much to the New York as it does to the Detroit, and it's hard to see Detroit coming away victorious.
New York Giants vs Detroit Lions
The NY Giants have suffered a second-half slide under Tom Coughlin head coach , finishing at or below .500 in seven of his 10 years at the helm of the team.
Moreover, the New York have had just one playoff berth in their last four seasons, a statistics that, at the start of training camp, general manager Jerry Reese said simply isn't good enough.
Can Coughlin and the New York hit their stride early and keep it going through the marathon-long season when playoff berths are earned in the later months?
The second half of their schedule won't be easy, and the dangers of trying to forecast an entire season can be tricky as well, as all it takes is one or two key injuries to occur that change the entire complexion of a team's strategy.
However, with Coughlin and Reese trying to keep the players focused on becoming the first team in modern-day NFL history to play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium, the team is aware of the high stakes it faces this year and is determined to earn a spot in the postseason.
