5 reasons Giants could upset Lions in Week 8

Coming off a sloppy third straight loss in a 27-21 defeat to the Arizona Cardinals, the New York Giants head to Detroit on Sunday with a 2-5 record.

Despite the Giants being 7-point underdogs in this matchup, the Lions are also on a three-game losing streak, as well.

With both teams having a lot to play for and looking to get out of October turmoil, check out the five reasons why the Giants could get back in the win-column this week.

Daniel Jones

This has been an obvious choice week-after-week. The success of the Giants lies heavily on the shoulders of their rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, whose had some turnover issues this season with 13 in six games (five starts).

The Giants offense has not scored more than 17 points since Jones first start in Tampa Bay Week 3 (32 points). If they want to get back to winning games, it starts and stops with Jones and his ability to take care of the football, which is something he hasn’t done much of lately.

However, these growing pains are to be expected from a rookie quarterback, but the fumbles are a problem (five), and were a major issue in his college career at Duke, where he fumbled 54 times. Jones also has eight interceptions in his last four starts. Part of the issue is that he is trying to force the ball into far too may tight windows. Jones must do a better job of taking care of the football this week and properly judge when to get rid of the football. If the rookie progresses this week, then the Giants will have a pretty good chance at snapping their losing streak.
