Re: Are the Giants Super Bowl favorites now?
Why because GB sucked today and Rodgers threw an interception when he went all season, 16 games, with only throwing 6?
Giants are 18th offensively. 17th defensively.
The 49ers are #2 offense and #1 defense.
Pats have the #3 offense and the #2 defense.
And the 49ers already whooped them once so no, they are not the favorites. Pats are in all honesty, slight underdogs, because they are a bit untested compared to the 49ers at this point, but it will be a wash come Super Bowl time. Bet safely on the 49ers next Sunday though. They will murder the Giants.
And even against a bad GB team how did the Giants rank?
Giants scoring offense and scoring defense efficiency:
Scoring Offense 18.4 yards per point - Good enough to be 28th in the league. Pretty expected.
Scoring Defense: 123.5 yards per point - incredible defensive showing, yes. That Giants D saved their ass, but it was more about GB beating themselves.
The #1 defense is at 20.0 yards per point
No defense does that to a good offense. None. Whenever a defense has a rating of 120+ that means the other team's offense screwed the pooch bad.
That is an inflated efficiency stat. The kind you should run away from.
