New York Giants: 5 Players That Need To Improve In Second Half Of Season

The New York Football Giants had their worst start since 1976, and the team did not get its first win until Week 7 of the regular season. After beating the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, the G-men went down to Philadelphia and defeated the Eagles 15-7 to complete their first half at 2-6. With eight games remaining, including three with division rivals, Dallas and Washington, New York still has eyes on a division title. Here are five players who will need to be productive in order for the Giants to compete.

Giants Salvage Win Against Eagles Despite Poor Offensive Performance

After starting the season 0-6, the New York Football Giants have won two games in a row. New York’s defense once again did not allow a touchdown, as Michael Vick re-injured his hamstring, and rookie Matt Barkley could not rally his troops as the Giants defeated the Eagles 15-7 in Philadelphia. The win raised New York’s record to 2-6, while Philadelphia fell to 3-5 on the season.

Giants Head To Philadelphia Amidst More Changes Along Offensive Line

The New York Football Giants seek to extend their winning streak to a modest two games as the team faces the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Giants fluid offensive line situation changed again this week, after starting center David Baas was placed on season ending injured reserve. The Eagles enter the contest relatively healthy, although last week’s starting quarterback, Nick Foles, is likely out with a concussion.

Giants Contain Peterson, Top Vikings 23-7 For First Win

Josh Freeman’s debut as a Viking was the boost that the New York Football Giants needed as the G-men snapped their six game losing streak with a 23-7 victory over Minnesota. New York’s initial victory of the 2013 campaign was not a thing of beauty, but the Giants were able to hold Adrian Peterson to a mere 28 yards rushing, requiring Freeman to raise the level of his play to a level that the league had not seen in several years. Freeman was not able to come through; completing only 38 percent of his passes on the evening.
