But all they’ve done so far is find ways to win, whether it’s by going for two in the opener, shutting out Aaron Rodgers in the second half or getting their first interception of the season to win them the game against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. It doesn’t matter that the Giants are 23rd in total offense and 15th in defense. Coach Brian Daboll has this team believing and finishing.
