The season is a quarter over, a decent sample size, so now is a good time to project how the rest of the season may play out for the Giants from a statistical point of view. Of course, not many of the numbers will be pretty. But hey, it’s the NFL.

So, here’s a chart that shows some key stats from games one through four and what they should be after 16 games. Of course, the first one is the most dire of them all. But hey, don’t blame me. Blame the math!
