Someone tell me what the conclusion is, I have points to make up in my football pool (straight up).

Giants are bad at covering #1 receivers like A.J. Green, and #3 and #4 receivers. Giants are bad at stopping the run. Bengals are sneaky good at running.

So basically, they're bad at stopping everyone except #2 receivers. Watch out, Armon Binns!

The Giants' slide started three weeks ago. Nobody's noticed it because the Redskins decided not to cover Victor Cruz, and Dez Bryant's fingertips touched out of bounds. And also because they could apparently go 7-9 and still win the division.

Indeed, and I stole a game from everyone in my football pool.
