EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants hit the quarter-pole of the 2018 season Sunday afternoon when they face the New Orleans Saints at MetLife Stadium (4:25 p.m. ET). A victory would be the Giants’ second straight and would get them to the .500 mark at 2-2 after an 0-2 start. A loss, of course, would drop them into a 1-3 hole.
The Giants will be without Olivier Vernon (ankle) and Eli Apple (groin) on defense. They will be without Cody Latimer (knee) and Evan Engram (knee) on offense. The other inactive players will be quarterback Kyle Lauletta, cornerback Antonio Hamilton and center Evan Brown.
The Saints are a 3.5-point favorite.
