The New York Giants will finish the 2021 campaign well below.500 and firmly in the basement of the NFC East. While they aren’t the greatest team to begin with, New York really suffered through a tough stretch of injuries this year. They lost their starting quarterback for several games, including the final seven of the year. None of the backup QBs were able to win a single game once Jones went down, either. It’s already been announced that head coach Joe Judge will return in 2022 and Jones is expected to hang around as well, barring something crazy happening in the free-agent market.
The 2022 season should theoretically show better results as long as the key players on the team stay healthy. Jones being able to hit the field for a full 17-game season would be great for his development and just the team’s overall competence. RB Saquon Barkley’s fifth-year option was picked up, meaning he’ll be back around for at least one more season for Big Blue. Rookie WR Kadarius Toney showed flashes of brilliance when he was healthy and had a quarterback that could get him the ball. So there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic heading into this slate of games next year.
