2021 New Orleans Saints opponent profile: New York Giants

Saints will host Giants in Week 4 of the 2021 NFL season


The New Orleans Saints will host the New York Giants at noon Sunday, Oct. 3 on Fox. After acquiring No. 1 receiver Kenny Golladay via free agency and drafting Florida's Kadarius Toney 20th overall, the offense led by third-year quarterback Daniel Jones should be vastly improved. Because of Jones' downfield throwing accuracy, and the return of star running back Saquon Barkley after missing most of last season due to injury, there's reason for optimism about the Giants' offense.

Let's take a deeper look at the Saints’ Week 4 opponent, the New York Giants:

New York Giants' 2020 season recap:

Judge took the reins of a 4-12 team. The team's 6-10 finish wasn't good enough to win an incapacitated NFC East, but there were still reasons to think Judge has the Giants headed in the right direction. The Giants suffered a plethora of injuries that claimed Barkley and Jones as victims among others. The defense took steps forward thanks to new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham. His schemes led to career-best production from defensive tackle Leonard Williams, who notched 11.5 sacks.
