After starting off the season with two straight wins, the New York Giants are in the midst of a three game losing streak, and are currently in last place of the NFC East. This Sunday is a huge game for them as they try to stay afloat in a still very winnable division, but it won’t be an easy matchup as the Baltimore Ravens come to town.
Coming off of a 6-10 season last year, the Giants spent big money in the offseason to improve their defense that finished last in the league a year ago. As the defense has shown signs of improvements, it’s the offense that has declined, and has been a major reason for the team’s three game losing streak. After throwing for three touchdowns in a Week 1 victory over Dallas, quarterback Eli Manning has only thrown two touchdowns and three interceptions in the team’s last three games, all of which resulted in a loss. Although a lot of the blame as been points towards received Odell Beckham Jr for his sideline antics, and rightfully so, Manning has to elevate his play in order to turn the season around for New York.
Similar to the Giants, the Ravens started off the season hot with three straight wins, but have since cooled down and dropped their last two. Getting back to their usual ways and playing great defense through their first five games, the offense has yet to find their groove this season, which resulted in their offensive coordinator getting fired after a loss last week to Washington.
Although it is still somewhat early, both the Giants and Ravens are desperately looking for a win, and this game could either make or break either of their seasons. I expect this game to be highly contested and end up coming down to the wire. Make sure you find out how to live stream the action below!
