The New York Giants are a middle of the road team in Madden NFL 15. They aren’t as good as a team like the 49ers but they certainly aren’t the Jacksonville Jaguars either.
We have the full team breakdown below.
Team: New York Giants
Offensive Strategy: Get the ball to your wide receivers. Eli Manning is still an accurate passer and the Giants have a few very good receiving targets in Madden 15 with Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz.
Defensive Strategy: 4-3 Pressure. You’ll want to get Jason Pierre-Paul free as much as you can on any nano blitz or play that brings heavy pressure. The Giants secondary should be able to force a few interceptions every game.
Strengths: Receivers and secondary. The Giants have a lot of depth and playmakers at wide receiver as well as in the defensive secondary. Pass the ball a lot and make sure others can’t pass effectively on you.
Weaknesses: Running back. Rashad Jennings is a decent running back but his skill set doesn’t translate all that well in Madden games where you either need to be an extreme power back or a speedy running back. Unfortunately Rashad Jennings is more of a balanced running back.
Impact Players: QB Eli Manning, WR Victor Cruz, WR Odell Beckham, RE Jason Pierre-Paul, CB Dominique Roders-Cromartie, CB Prince Amukamara, FS Antrel Rolle
Key Newcomers: WR Odell Beckham, C Weston Richburg, HB Rashad Jennings, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB Walter Thurmond
Additional Remarks: This isn’t the best Giants team but if you are a halfway decent player, you should be able to at least compete with them against most of the people you will play online.
