After a pathetic showing in a 41-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night, many Jets fans and members of the media in the greater New York City area are calling for the firing of second-year head coach Todd Bowles.
The now New York Giants looked poised to capture a playoff birth for the first time in four years, but the road, which couldn’t have been easier the past two weeks against Chicago (2-8) and Cleveland (0-12), gets a lot tougher from here on out.
They’ve relied heavily on their multifaceted passing attack with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, Victor Cruz and Eli Manning, but the past two games have showed that the run game may be picking up steam and at quite a good time.
What would typically be a thrilling matchup down in “Big D” between two of the better quarterbacks in the NFL is now reduced to a “David vs. Goliath” storyline for rookie Dak Prescott. Prescott did perform well in the preseason, but to expect him to come out and compete right away, regardless of the defense he’s facing, would be too much to ask.
