On the latest episode of the Big Blue View podcast, Dan Pizzuta and Chris Pflum break down areas the Giants defense can improve from 2018 to 2019. In 2018, the Giants had one of the league’s worst defenses, one that ranked 24th in DVOA, 26th in yards allowed per drive, and 27th in points allowed per drive. Topics on this episode include:

  • Better third down defense
  • Improvement on passes to the short middle area of the field (30th in DVOA)
  • More consistent deep pass defense
  • More versatility in personnel
  • Likelihood of converting pressure into more sacks
