Things aren’t looking so sunny in Florida. Former Gator Tim Tebow sank the Dolphins last week by overcoming a 15-point deficit in less than three minutes. Over their first six games, the ‘Phins have only scored seven touchdowns (they’ve also allowed seven interceptions and fumbled seven times) and haven’t won a single game. And this week they have to face a rejuvenated and healthy New York Giants squad.
The Giants are back from a sorely needed bye week, and some familiar faces will be suiting up on Sunday. Guard Chris Snee will return to the line, and we may see Michael Boley, Brandon Jacobs and Osi Umenyoira get some action. The Dolphins aren’t one of the hardest hitting teams in the league so it might be a good game to test out some banged up body parts. Prince Amukamara is still out, but he could be back as early as next week against the Patriots.
The Giants have one of the toughest second half schedules in the league. The Miami Dolphins will prove a nice tuneup before the real heavy hitters. However, the Giants can’t blow this game off as the Dolphins have come close to victory several times. Expect the game to be exciting, especially if the Giants start the first half lethargically and with a lot of turnovers.
Fun fact: These two teams last met in London at Wembley Stadium as part of the NFL’s International Series.
After their matchup against the Dolphins this week, the team will face New England, San Francisco, New Orleans, Dallas and the Jets on the road. They will play Philadelphia, Green Bay, Washington and Dallas at home. It’s a tough schedule as their upcoming opponents have a combined 34-17 record.
