The Giants finally were able to stop the bleeding with a 36-7 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It may not take much of the pain away from what’s been a miserable season, however it’s still something for the 4-9 Giants to feel good about.

The schedule was kind to the Giants, they came up against a team that’s just as bad as that are, arguably more. The Titans dropped to 2-11 on the season, so it’s not as if the Giants came out of this as world-beaters. At the end of the day, for the Giants, this win presents a rare chance to feel good about themselves.

Rookies Odell Beckham Jr. and Andre Williams had big performances, Beckham’s is nothing new anymore (9 catches, 117 yards, 1 touchdown), however it was a breakout performance for Williams. The running back ran for 131 yards on 24 carries.

It’s been a miserable season for the Giants, they hadn’t won a football game since defeating the Atlanta Falcons on October 5th, it’s been downhill since then.

With speculation surrounding the future of head coach Tom Coughlin, his coaching staff, and general manager Jerry Reese — getting a win for the first time in over two months was a much-needed breath of fresh air for this team, even if it’s just a temporary feeling.
