    This is a test, it will tell us who the real Giants are.

    Injuries and player turnover in a shortened preseason hurt this team no doubt. But the coaching staff has not in any way made up for that and in fact IMO exacerbated the problems.

  2. Jason C. says:

    WTF +11 Turnovers for Buffalo??? This game should be fun…

    • Big Daddy says:

      That’s how you win, the top teams will almost always have a very good turnover ratio.

      It’s the sign of a disciplined team who values ball security and team defense.
