The Giants and Cardinals have some similarities. In the first place both opened as Super Bowl betting longshots. Each team has a second-year starting quarterback. Kyler Murray of the Cardinals and Daniel Jones of the Giants continue their on-the-job training. Murray has had the more impressive numbers in a much tougher division. But Jones has also had his moments. Arizona has wilted under the heat of a surprise playoff drive. While the Giants have been fortunate to play in the NFL’s worst division. New York leads the NFC East, or make that “Least.” Also is Big Blue improving.
