Game Derek Holland Jersey
Mathew Barzal Authentic Jersey This week’s Monday Night Football matchup is between two teams who have made being inconsistent a consistent theme this season. Even with a loss last week, the New York Giants are still in the hunt for a postseason run thanks to a subpar NFC East division, but they need a win over the Miami Dolphins to get there. The Dolphins might be coming off a win over the Ravens, but it wasn’t a very pretty win and could have easily ended with a different outcome.
The Giants stayed in the game through four quarters, taking the Jets to overtime, and settled for the team’s third straight loss. Division leadership is low on the totem poll of concerns, with much larger issues coming to a head — like questions surrounding head coach Tom Coughlin’s future with the team.
“Much has been made about the recent struggles of our offense,” said Baldwin. “However, we are all witnessing the evolution of this side of the ball. As opposing defenses focus more on stopping Beastmode and the read option, we will rely more heavily on Russell Wilson and the passing game. As WR’s, we will continue to make the most out of our opportunities. Stay tuned.
The evolution Baldwin predicted has been clear.
Baldwin has become Russell Wilson’s go-to-guy and has caught eight touchdowns in his last three games, a feat only surpassed by Art Powell back in 1963 (who had nine in a three-game span). For more context, the only other receivers with eight touchdown catches in a three-game span are Calvin Johnson, Drew Bennett, Cris Carter, and Jerry Rice (who did it twice). That’s some good company.
Russell Wilson’s line the last four games has been better than any quarterback in the NFL. He’s 89-of-118 (75.4-percent) for 1,170 yards (at 9.9 yards per attempt) with 16 touchdowns, no picks, and an incredible 145.8 rating (plus a rushing touchdown just for fun).
