Since 1990, about 75 percent of teams who’ve won the first three games of an NFL season have gone on to the playoffs.
The 2016 version of the New York Giants appeared to be well on their way to just that ? winning at Dallas and at home versus New Orleans, only to falter late at home against Washington.
Of course, a 2-1 start in the NFL is admirable. But against Minnesota in primetime Monday night, the Giants lived up to criticisms that they’re soft, slow and undisciplined.
