Will the Giants beat the odds this year or have another entry in a string of lackluster seasons? A look at the NY Giants playoff odds is a good place to start answering that question.
It’s not going to be too hard for the Giants to outperform their 2021 season when they won four games. And yet, fans are almost scared to hope after years of tough breaks. The Giants haven’t made the playoffs since 2016 when they lost the Wild Card Game.
But wait! During the offseason whispers started that the Giants could be one of the biggest sleepers of the season. The most important change to the Giants this year is the coaching staff. New head coach Brian Daboll and new GM Joe Schoen were key figures in the Buffalo Bills’ success in recent years, and Giants fans are hoping to see what they can do this season.
We think the team has a shot at surprising us all. The Giants got off to a great start in the season opener with a 21-20 road win over the Tennessee Titans.

NY Giants Regular Season Update
What a Sunday it was for the Giants. They scored a road upset of last year’s AFC No. 1 seed and did it in dramatic fashion for an exclamation point.
Trailing by seven points late in the game, New York scored a touchdown on a 1-yard pass from Daniel Jones to Chris Myarick with 1 minute, 9 seconds left in the game. Instead of kicking the PAT, the Giants went for two and got it on a shuffle pass from Jones to Saquon Barkley. Just like that, the Giants had a win and a little bit of swagger from new head coach Brian Daboll going for the win.

Scoring the winning points was just icing on the cake for Barkley, who looked like his old dominant self throughout the game. He rushed 18 times for 164 yards, including a 68-yard run, and scored one touchdown. He also caught six passes for 30 yards.
The Giants play their home opener on Sept. 18, when they face the Carolina Panthers, who lost their season opener to the Cleveland Browns. The Giants opened as 2.5-point favorites over the Panthers
