The New York Giants are currently on a hot streak, and would love to keep it going this Sunday night, when they line up against the San Francisco 49ers.
Big Blue has been firing on all cylinders the past two games.
The offense and the defense for the G-Men have done a great job helping the Giants be in control of each game, and both are performing very well.
“I was really proud of how hard the guys came out and played, there was a lot of energy.” Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said.. “Now, obviously, it’s on to the next one.”
The Giants next opponent in the 49ers will challenge the G-men's defense to stop San Francisco’s dual threat quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick leads a 49ers offense that will test the Giants top ranked rushing defense. They will have to stop the 49ers rushing attack led by Kaepernick and running back Carlos Hyde.
“It’s a pretty good challenge we’ve got facing us in San Francisco “ Spagnuolo pointed out in the Giants game planning on defense for the 49ers. “Hopefully we can bring the same energy and physical, fast play that we had last week. We’re going to hang our hat on that.”
The biggest thing for the Giants will be trying to contain Kaepernick who can because of his dual capabilities can beat you running and throwing the football.
“We’ve faced a couple of really good quarterbacks that get it out quick. A guy that could avoid sacks last week, and we got another one this week. “ Spagnuolonoted. “The back end has to play a little bit tighter, the guys upfront have got to rush a little bit quicker. Some of those we’ll finish off and get some sacks.”
On the other side of the ball, the Giants offense has also been playing at a high level during the Giants current two game winning streak.
Big Blue's offense has been doing a great job moving the football down the field, putting up on the board and keeping turnovers in a minimum.
“They got better last week and we need to take another step this week.” Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said. “Just get a little bit better each week, find a way to win the games, and we’ll be where we need to be.”
For this week’s game plan facing the 49ers, the Giants offense will do what they’ve been doing well as of late and that is getting the ball out quick on passing situations.
“We want to play fast and get the ball out on time when it’s supposed to get out and to who it’s supposed to go to.” McAdoo stated. “ Go through your reads and take the completions when you have them.”
There were high expectation for the Giants offense coming into 2015
With Eli Manning at quarterback, and a host of talented skill players led by wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, the Giants offense has the ability to thrive in it’s second season under McAdoo.
“I think the second year in the system, it’s an adjustment-based offense,” McAdoo admitted. “We have confidence, we train the situation, we believe that we’re going to go out there and execute the way we’re capable.”
During this two game winning streak, New York is delighted to be seeing both its offense and defense, performing at a high level.
Now a month into the season, the Giants have the ability with how their playing on both sides of the ball to continue this hot streak, and take control of the NFC East.
