The NFL schedule was released yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited, it is a tradition unlike any other, you get the schedule and you carve out your teams path to the post-season. I did just that with the 4x Super Bowl Champion, New York Football Giants.
This is the first season since 2004 that Eli Manning will not be in the Giants locker room, in addition, it is the first season with Joe Judge as our Head Coach. Let me start off by saying, I love the Giants new coaching staff, we have Judge who is a Saban-Belichick protege, Jason Garrett as our Offensive Coordinator, Bret Bilema coaching up our linebackers, big bad Freddie Kitchens with the Tight Ends and our Defensive Coordinator, Patrick Graham is another Belichick disciple.
With saying all that, our roster still has a lot to prove, I think the offense could be explosive but the defense has been one of the worst in the league for the last three seasons. Sometimes, when you are one of the greatest organizations in all of sports and people are continuously over-looking you, that’s when you jump up and bite teams in the ass. That is why the Big Blue Wrecking Crew, the G-MEN, the New York Football Giants are going to the playoffs. Scors is here to break down each game and how it is going to turn out on our way to our fifth Super Bowl championship.
Week 1, Monday Sep. 14th, 7:15pm vs Pittsburgh Steelers:
A battle of two iconic franchises in week 1 of the NFL season. The Giants are hosting two Monday night games for the first time in team history. Big Ben is under center but is still a little rusty coming off of his injury, Danny Dimes shines and makes a statement. Giants dominate.
Giants – 38
Steelers – 17
Week 2, Sunday Sep. 20th, 1:00pm @ Chicago Bears
The Bears could have had Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes, instead the have Mitchy T with Nick Foles waiting in the wings to take his job. This is the game that solidifies the end of Mitch as a starter in Chicago. The Giants are able to run the ball and Barkley goes crazy.
Giants – 24
Bears – 9
Week 3, Sunday Sep. 27th, 1:00pm vs San Francisco 49ers
You hate to see a team have to travel across the country for a one o’clock start, we welcome it with open arms. The beautiful fall weather is a perfect environment for Danny Dimes to slash apart the niners and make the Super Bowl hangover a real thing for Shanahan and the boys from the bay.
Giants – 24
49ers – 20
Week 4, Sunday Oct. 4th, 4:05pm vs Los Angeles Rams
Look, the Rams had one of the best logos in the league and I stand with Eric Dickerson in calling out the new logo for being hideous and making my brain think that the new logo is actually the Chargers. If the giants go 80’s early 90’s all white color rush jerseys in this game it is an absolute blowout. I think this is our toughest game yet but the Giants prevail in a shootout late.
Giants – 44
Rams – 41
Week 5, Sunday Oct. 11th, 4:25pm @ Dallas Cowboys
I wish that Jerry World intimidated me even a little bit but guess what, it doesn’t. In typical Giants vs Cowboys fashion we get a late field goal to secure the W for the Giants. It’s a 49 yarder to seal the deal and move the G-MEN to 5-0.
Giants – 30
Cowboys – 28
Week 6, Sunday Oct. 18th, 1:00pm vs Washington Redskins
If we can’t beat the Redskins then maybe my season predictions aren’t valid at all, this is a Giants blow-out, a beat down of epic proportions. Dwayne Haskins gets picked off 4 times, twice for a pick six, Barkley adds two TD’s of his own and Jones throws for three.
Giants – 52
Redskins – 13
Week 7, Thursday Oct. 22nd, 8:20pm @ Philadelphia Eagles
This game is tough, going on the road to Philly is always a tough task, but Joe Judge fires up the defense and we get a goal line stand late to win this and strike fear into the hearts of the NFL, the Giants are for real!
Giants – 21
Eagles – 17
Week 8, Monday Nov. 2nd, 8:15pm vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady comes into Metlife and realizes that his old coaches have his number, the Giants get to Brady early and often and make the legend quite uncomfortable early. The Bucs battle back and miss a game tying FG as time expires, a Monday Night classic!
Giants – 23
Buccaneers – 20
Week 9, Sunday Nov 8th, 1:00pm @ Washington Redskins
The Giants stop playing close games and stick it to the Redskins again, Haskins fumbles twice, throws two interceptions in sloppy conditions in our nation’s capitol. The Giants offense is sluggish but is able to score twice in the fourth quarter to wrap this one up.
Giants – 24
Redskins – 3
Week 10 Sunday Nov. 15th, 1:00pm vs Philadelphia Eagles
It’s Scors birthday weekend and the G-MEN give him a big happy birthday victory over the hated Eagles. Carson Wentz is awful, Danny Dimes is phenomenal and the Giants blow past the Eagles, Barkley scores two 4th quarter touchdowns to put the cherry on top of this ass-kicking, birthday, beatdown!
Giants – 38
Eagles – 13
Week 11 – Bye Week
We listen to all the “experts” say how the Giants will lose once the playoffs roll around.
Week 12 Sunday Nov. 29th 1:00pm at Cincinnati Bengals
The Giants roll over the Bengals, Saquon runs all over this lack luster defense for 234 rushing yards and three touchdowns in an absolute route of the hapless Bengals.
Giants – 31
Bengals – 10
Week 13 Sunday Dec. 6th 4:05pm @ Seattle Seahawks
The Giants road trip continues and this is their ugliest game of the season, it is down pouring in Seattle all day long and neither offense can get anything going. The game goes to overtime where the Giants win on a scoop and score fumble from Blake Martinez.
Giants – 12
Seahawks – 6
Week 14 Sunday Dec. 13th 1:00pm vs Arizona Cardinals
The Giants play host to the up and coming Cardinals but on this day the weather is cold, snow begins to trickle down in East Rutherford and Kyler Murray looks lost, three turnovers and a solid ground attack from Barkley is too much for the Cardinals. G-MEN win easy.
Giants – 24
Cardinals – 10
Week 15 Sun. Dec 20th, 1:00pm vs Cleveland Browns
The Giants slap the Browns all over the field, Baker Mayfield throws 8 interceptions and the Giants pitch their first shoutout of the season.
Giants – 63
Browns – 0
Week 16 Sunday Dec. 27th, 1:00pm @ Baltimore Ravens
Scors makes the trip north to see his Giants take on the high-flying Ravens. The Ravens already have the AFC #1 seed locked up and rets everybody, the Giants are going for perfection. With Scors in attendance, there is no way the Giants are going to lose.
Giants – 27
Ravens – 17
Week 17 Sunday Jan 3rd, 1:00pm vs Dallas Cowboys
Sweet poetic justice, the Giants go undefeated in the regular season by demolishing the Cowboys at home. Jerry Jones starts slapping his son in the head and crying out loud in his luxury suite while Andy Dalton replaces Dak Prescott in the second half. Joe Judge is carried off the field and all eyes are put on the Giants finishing off the perfect season.
Giants – 92
Cowboys – 5
NFC Divisional Playoffs vs Green Bay Packers
Welcome to the thunder dome Aaron Rodgers, the G-MEN and second year Quaterback Daniel Jones get MetLife rocking and the Giants come from behind to run over the Packers in the second half.
Giants – 30
Packers – 21
NFC Championship vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brady and Gronk come into MetLife and they battle the Giants for a trip to the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay, how ironic. This is a nail biter and the Giants win on a last second field goal to send them to their sixth Super Bowl in franchise history.
Giants – 26
Buccaneers – 24
Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida vs Buffalo Bills
A re-match of Super Bowl XXV that was also played in Tampa Bay, something’s gotta give. This time the Giants don’t need a missed field goal to win, they dominate from the start and hand the good people of Buffalo their 5th Super Bowl loss while hoisting the Lombardi trophy for the fifth time in franchise history. The Giants are the first team ever to have a 19-0 season! Can’t wait to watch this unfold.
Giants – 33
Bills – 20
