The Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants have been two of the extra disappointing groups within the NFL this season.
The Falcons have struggled with main accidents on each side of the ball (Devonta Freeman, Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, and Ricardo Allen are all on injured reserve) and have slumped to a 2-Four begin whereas being seemingly unable to cease groups from scoring for lengthy sufficient for their explosive offense to get a relaxation. The Giants seem to have hit the mom lode with Saquon Barkley however the remainder of their crew is so unhealthy that it simply does not matter, and they’re 1-5.
Monday night time gives every crew with a chance to rebound, because the Falcons host the Giants in Atlanta. New York is technically nonetheless alive within the NFC East, which seems to be one among soccer’s worst divisions. The Saints appear like they’re operating away with the NFC South however the Falcons aren’t too far out of a wild card spot. Whichever crew manages to come back away with a win on Monday may use the sport as a springboard into the second half of the season, probably mounting a problem for a playoff spot. Whoever loses, nonetheless, is in fairly deep bother — particularly if it is the Giants, as they’d be 1-6 with no hope on the horizon.
Maybe we’ll get an entertaining sport as the 2 groups vie to remain out of the league basement, as there can be loads of stars on the sphere, corresponding to Barkley, Odell Beckham Jr., and Julio Jones. That ought to make for a enjoyable contest.
