Miami Dolphins (3-10) at New York Giants (2-11)

Sunday, December 15, 1PM ET

The New York Giants may have lost their eighth game in a row on Monday night, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t look like a team capable of pulling off a win in the next three weeks. In fact, they could very well get it done against the similarly miserable Miami Dolphins in Week 15.

Eli Manning back under center gave the Giants a boost in Week 14, at least in the first half. Unfortunately, the offense as a whole stalled in the second half, allowing the Eagles to score 20 unanswered points and steal the victory. If Manning can continue shaking off the rust and allow Saquan Barkley to be better utilized, New York will be in a good place.

It’s not like they have to put together some ridiculous performance to get the win. The Dolphins have been downright awful for much of 2019, pulling off a few surprise wins while looking largely incompetent. Ryan Fitzpatrick has worked magic time and again, and the Miami defense makes plays every once in a while. For the most part, though, the Dolphins are a pushover.

Let’s hope for the Giants’ sake that’s the case again in Week 15. The Giants have enough talent to get the win, especially with a revitalized Manning at the helm. Looks like New York won’t be enjoying as good of draft position as we expected, assuming this prediction comes true.

Prediction: Giants win 17-13
