Two Giants' starting defensive backs out of the game.
Kareem McKenzie injured at the end of the first half.
Brandon Jacobs nicked up.

Wow, I am really struggling here, trying to invent excuses for saying the Saints "haven't played anyone yet."

On the other hand, 500, that's 500 yards of offense against one of the league's best defenses--until this week that is.

Final Score, 48-27 with the last 7 Giants' points clearly garbage time points. 14 points as the result of s short filed following poor kickoff coverage.

Seven different players scored touchdowns--so how do you defend an offense with that kind of versatility?

Giants' running game was pretty much negated by the early 14-0 lead.

The first Saints' punt happened in the thrid quarter.

The Saints STILL have not trailed in a game this year.

The Saints beat the highest paid player in the game, and a pretty darned good QB and wide receiver corps.

Did any Giants' tight end catch a pass today? ;)

Even if the giants secondary was suspect, they are supposed to have the best dline in the NFL. I think they only pressured Brees 2 maybe 3 times.

I think that was the biggest thing that stands out for me.
The Gaints had their starting D-line all healthy in the game and they were shut out. Bree's had all day to throw and they Gaints couldn't stop the Saints running game.

This was just an amazing game.

It's simple, they'll say the Giants really aren't any good. All of their success has been against cupcake teams. Their record, and their stats are misleading, so they were exposed today.

That's what they'll say. They'll equate it to us beating the Lions somehow.
