Will the Giants finish the Season 0-8 at home in 2017?

This was not how the New York Giants anticipated their season going. After finishing with a 10-6 record and making the playoffs last season, expectations for the G-Men were sky-high. New York was a dominant home team last season, finishing 7-1. Now, Big Blue is 1-7 this season and 0-4 at home and could be in trouble to even secure a victory at MetLife Stadium in 2017.

Online sportsbook Bovada has them currently listed at +300 to finish 0-8 and get skunked at home. As a Cowboys fan, it’s easy for me to pile on the Giants and this time, I’ll gladly kick some dirt on their grave. New York’s remaining schedule at home is a gauntlet of superior teams with the Chiefs, Cowboys, Eagles and Redskins on the docket. Those four teams have a combined W-L record of 23-11 and all rank in the top 10 in points per game. The only game of those four that the Giants may be able to squeak out a victory in is against Dallas. The reason being that the Cowboys may be without All-Pro running back Ezekiel Elliott if and when he actually serves his six-game suspension.

Then you need to factor in Eli Manning. The eye test has shown that the Giants quarterback is not the same player who led New York to two Super Bowl wins against the Patriots. Head coach Ben McAdoo has hinted that all positions will need to be evaluated during this lost season (including quarterback) and that could mean IT’S DAVIS WEBB TIME!!

In all seriousness, if the Giants actually put Webb in the lineup to shake up the team, it will only hinder New York and help secure the 0-8 home record for bettors (fingers crossed). While he did see some action in preseason, these stats cannot be properly evaluated to project how he would perform as a starter. However, if you’re curious, he finished 18-for-34 in completions in four appearances and didn’t throw any TDs.
