Can the New York Giants go into FedEx Field in Landover, Md. on Thursday night and pull off an upset against the Washington Football Team? Your Big Blue View staff is showing a surprising amount of confidence.

Five of seven picks made this week have the 0-1 Giants, 3-point underdogs per Draft Kings Sportsbook, defeating the 0-1 Football Team in the 2021 NFL season’s first Thursday Night Football matchup.

Yours truly isn’t sure, honestly, that taking the Giants in this one is wise. Yet, I’m doing it anyway. I just have to believe that sooner or later the Giants are going to get off this merry-go-round of seemingly endless 0-2 starts to seasons.

Thursday night is as good a time as any for that to happen.
