What to Know
After a few days’ rest for both teams, the New York Giants and the Miami Dolphins will meet up at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. New York staggers in eager to bring about an end to their nine-game losing streak.
The Giants fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles last week but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. The Giants lost to Philadelphia 23-17. The Giants were up 17-3 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead.
Meanwhile, Miami had victory within their grasp but couldn’t quite capture it last week as the team lost 22-21 to the New York Jets. DB Walt Aikens (0 points), WR DeVante Parker (0 points), DE Charles Harris (0 points), TE Durham Smythe (0 points), MLB Raekwon McMillan (0 points), DT Davon Godchaux (0 points), K Jason Sanders (0 points), TE Mike Gesicki (0 points), OLB Jerome Baker (0 points), P Matt Haack (0 points), QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (0 points), CB Eric Rowe (0 points), DT John Jenkins (0 points), DE Avery Moss (0 points), WR Albert Wilson (0 points), WR Allen Hurns (0 points), DT Christian Wilkins (0 points), CB Jomal Wiltz (0 points), LB Vince Biegel (0 points), DB Ken Webster (0 points), DB Steven Parker (0 points), WR Isaiah Ford (0 points), RB Patrick Laird (0 points), DB Nik Needham (0 points), CB Ryan Lewis (0 points), DB Marcus Sherels (0 points), TE Clive Walford (0 points), RB Myles Gaskin (0 points), OLB Andrew Van Ginkel (0 points), FS Adrian Colbert (0 points), WR Mack Hollins (0 points), DT Gerald Willis (0 points), and RB De’Lance Turner (0 points) were the top scorers for Miami.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Giants are stumbling into the contest with the fourth most touchdowns allowed in the NFL, having given up 38 on the season. The Dolphins have had an even harder time: they are second worst in the league in touchdowns allowed, with 42 on the season. Look for both offensives to try attacking early to give their own defense a break.
