The Giants have been on a downward spiral for the past few seasons, but it looks like they may have finally turned things around. On Sunday, they defeated the Indianapolis Colts 38-10 to clinch their first playoff berth since 2016. This was a dominant win by the Giants, and it was much needed for a team who face serious doubts from fans.

They easily covered the 5.5 spread on FanDuel sportsbook while the total score has gone “over”. They will now head into the playoffs with some momentum behind them, assuming they will have another great performance in week 18.

Meanwhile, It’s hard to tell what has been more disheartening for the Indianapolis Colts: The six consecutive losses they just racked up – including their 38-10 defeat at the hands of the New York Giants on Sunday – or the fact that their record now stands at a dismal 4-11-1 for this season.

The Giants are Back!

The Giants have something to be proud of this season, making it to the postseason for the first time in four years. A winning formula is being credited to first-year General Manager Joe Schoen and Daboll who have sprinkled the Giants with immediate success.

“Let’s be honest, no one besides the men and women in that facility gave us a chance of accomplishing this,’’ Saquon Barkley stated. “You want to make it to the playoffs but it’s not like making the playoffs and now you won the Super Bowl.’’ 

With the Week 18’s game against the Eagles having no real bearing on their playoff fate, the door remains open for Daboll to rest certain players to increase their chances of success down the line.

Worst Defense in the League

The Indianapolis Colts were hoping to gain some momentum after a disappointing offensive outing last week but were instead met with further disappointment in Sunday’s match-up with the New York Giants. It was clear that the Colts failed to find any proper consistency on offense and quarterback Nick Foles was ill-equipped to handle their lack of rhythm, as he could register just 81 total passing yards and one interception throughout his half of play.

Unfortunately, it seemed like no matter who was at the helm, nothing much changed for the Colts’ offense; Ehlinger took over for Foles but still struggled to generate a spark. Ultimately, it’s the 10th straight game without a win for Indy, and it doesn’t seem like there’s an end to its offensive struggles coming anytime soon.

With 252 total yards, a combined 124 passing yards between Foles and Ehlinger, and an average of just 4.5 yards per play, it is clear that the team has some serious work to do. To make matters worse, the Colts converted on just 3 of 12 third-down attempts, which highlights an overall offensive problem for them this season.

To give themselves some chances of success in the next year’s NFL betting markets and beyond, the Colts must address key issues at the quarterback position this offseason by finding the right player that can make things go; otherwise, they may be stuck in a continuous cycle of underperformance.

Though they still have one game left against division rivals Houston Texans, no amount of effort will make up for what was probably an inevitable outcome as Indy slowly slid down the standings since late October.
