Will the Giants start the season on the right foot, for a change? Here is what we think.

Can the New York Giants reverse their trend of awful starts to NFL seasons by defeating the Denver Broncos on Sunday at MetLife Stadium? Below, using Tallysight’s technology, the Big Blue View staff predicts the outcome of Sunday’s game.

The Giants are 3-point underdogs, per Draft Kings Sportsbook.

The Giants have started 0-2 or worse in seven of the last eight seasons, with the exception being a 2-0 start in 2016. It is no coincidence that is the only season since 2011 in which the Giants have reached the playoffs.

Of course, it will help the Giants if Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, Kyle Rudolph, Evan Engram and Adoree’ Jackson are able to play. We will have full injury information on Friday afternoon as soon as it becomes available.

The podcast below includes an interview with Giants edge defender Quincy Roche and a Giants-Broncos preview with Joe Rowles of SB Nation’s Mile High Report. Chris Pflum, Joe DeLeone and Nick Falato also broke down the game in this podcast.
