The New York Giants do not have the best team on paper, but they always find ways to win.
They play to their strengths and keep competing until the final buzzer sounds.
That’s why no lead is safe against them.

NFL on CBS tweeted, “The @Giants are the first team THIS CENTURY to overcome double-digit second-half deficits in 3 of their first 6 games.”
The Giants scored another come-from-behind victory in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens led by as much as ten points, 20-10, before New York ended up scoring two touchdowns in five minutes to settle the final score, 24-20.
The Giants also overcame a 20-10 deficit by going on a 14-2 fourth-quarter run against the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.
Green Bay’s two points even come with an asterisk because of an intentional safety.
Meanwhile, the Giants’ first come-from-behind win in 2022 was their season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans led, 13-0, before the Giants dominated the second half, 21-7.
The Finish Matters Most
Those results reveal that the Giants will keep on competing even if they are staring at a deficit.
That’s the mentality new head coach Brian Daboll instilled in them after becoming the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills.
His system works, especially in activating their rushing attack led by Saquon Barkley.
Barkley is second to Nick Chubb in rushing yards, and he has been the driving force for their offense.
The offensive linemen will create gaps for him to exploit.
If that does not work, they can also execute play-action passes off a fake handoff.
Indeed, this team is not the same old Giants that did not fight until the end.
Instead, they hope to win more games by sticking to the plan.
