Whoa there... you are making assumptions that are unfounded.
I'm not a Giants fan. I'm just an honest realist who watched the games.
Eli started the game throwing a pick directly to a Dallas defender... He threw another interception later... and that last interception he shouldn't have thrown because he should have been able to see his teammate clearly was looking the wrong way! Dallas earned those other turnovers... the one on the punt, though, was something of a fluke that was just fortunate happenstance in many ways... but Dallas earned those fumbles they ripped from the ball carrier.
Bottom line... if you're honest and watched that game... The Giants made every mistake imaginable and barely lost... Dallas did almost everything good possible and only barely won. Flipping to the other game for comparison... The Jets won due to Tampa having a stupid player commit a stupid penalty... the Jets don't get to play Tampa again... and Tampa isn't looking like they will be beating anyone playing like that.
So the logical conclusion is the Giants will fare far better than the Jets... you don't have to be a fan to conclude that.
Also, the two recent Super Bowl seasons for the Giants... were 10-6 and 9-7... so they don't have to be spectacular to make the playoffs and then if they get a little luck and a little good, who knows.
The Giants are NOT anywhere close to my pick to win... but they are infinitely closer than the Jets... which is the only point I was making.
