  • Gano needs three more converted field goals (27 in a row) to move into first place all-time in franchise history for consecutive field goals made. (Josh Brown, 29).

Goal to Go: Improve and Win

Ever since the start of the season, the only thing on the mind of head coach Joe Judge and his players is that the team improve little by little, day by day and week by week.

Judge and the rest of the Giants have insisted that the season won't be defined by whether they make the playoffs or not. But when a team plays solid football, such as what Judge is looking for, that team usually wins games.

And hey, if by some chance the Giants do that, if they play solid football and win these remaining two games, they certainly are going to put themselves into a good position to reach the playoffs, which despite what Judge and the players say is everyone's goal.
