Jonathan Gannon is learning on the job this season, just like any first-year head coach in the NFL.
One thing the Arizona Cardinals coach already knows is the importance of beating the New York Giants.
Gannon came to the Cardinals after two seasons as the defensive coordinator with the Philadelphia Eagles and had a 4-1 record against their division rival, including a win in last season’s playoffs.
The Giants (0-1) and Cardinals (0-1) are both looking for their first win of the season when the teams meet on Sunday in Arizona.
“Just having played them a couple of times being in that division, it’s going to be a good fight.” Gannon said.
The Giants didn’t put up much of a fight in their opener, losing 40-0 to the Dallas Cowboys. The Cardinals also lost, though their performance was much more encouraging in a 20-16 setback against the Commanders.
It was a bizarre opener for the Giants, who fell behind 26-0 by halftime after having a field goal blocked and returned for a touchdown and having an interception returned for another score. New York quarterback Daniel Jones — who signed a $160 million, four-year contract during the offseason — completed just 15 of 28 passes for 104 yards and two interceptions.
Gannon does not expect a repeat performance.
“I think Week 1 is different for everybody,” Gannon said. “You’ve got new players, new schemes, new teams, did you play your guys in preseason and injuries — all those things go into it. Within the first couple of games, you want to find your rhythm, see what you do well and evaluate that but in the NFL there’s no surprises.
“Some games are tight and certain ones get out of whack.”
Gannon’s familiarity with the Giants could certainly help in preparation for his second game. Then again, New York Giants coach Brian Daboll is also very familiar with Gannon and his defensive schemes.
“Yeah, there’s some similarities,” Daboll said. “Different players, but I think they got after it pretty good (against Washington). They had a defensive touchdown, another interception, another fumble recovery. They turned the ball over, they’re fast.”
DOBBS, TAKE TWO
Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs will start for a second straight game after being acquired in a trade just two weeks before the season opener.
Dobbs played OK in his Arizona debut, completing 21 of 30 passes for 132 yards. He also lost two fumbles, which was one of the main reasons the Commanders rallied for a 20-16 win.
“It’s just focus, right?” Dobbs said. “It’s focus, discipline, just the little things. It starts with me at quarterback, but also sharing that with the guys. You never know which play it might be. You never know what down it might be. ... You have to stay locked in and focused.”
No matter how well Dobbs plays, his days as the starter are likely numbered. He’s the fill-in for franchise quarterback Kyler Murray, who is still recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss at least the next three games.
The Giants opened the 2022 season with a 21-20 win over Tennessee on the road. The winning margin came when Daboll went for a late 2-point conversion in his NFL head coaching debut.
The following week Daboll took receiver Kenny Golladay and inside linebacker Austin Calitro out of the starting lineup.
Watch what happens coming off a 40-0 loss. The offensive line was bad. Jones was sacked seven times and the offense gained 171 yards.
Expect changes, with the least being some players rotating series. Left tackle Andrew Thomas has a hamstring injury. Defensively, edge rushers Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari struggled.
Arizona’s defense — and particularly the pass rush — was a pleasant surprise in last week’s loss. The Cardinals had six sacks by five different players and forced three turnovers.
Linebacker Dennis Gardeck is the perfect leader for the no-name bunch. He’s been with the Cardinals for six seasons, slowly climbing the ranks from undrafted free agent to a vital piece for the defense.
The Giants were embarrassed by the Cowboys at home on Sunday Night Football to the tune of 40-0. They only mustered up 171 yards of total offense in the game. QB Daniel Jones struggled and looked as if he wasn’t prepared for what he would face on Sunday. The defense only gave up three touchdowns and was put into some ad spots due to defensive turnovers. They aren’t as bad as they played in Week 1, but they may have regressed and not been as good as last year.
The Cardinals are clearly tanking this season with Joshua Dobbs under center. Franchise QB Kyler Murray is expected to miss most of the year with a torn ACL. The Cardinals’ offense was expected in Week 1, with 210 yards of total offense and no offensive touchdowns. It’s going to be a long season for the red birds, and it may be a season without many highlights.
The New York Giants had a bad start to the 2022-2023 NFL season, they are in fourth position in the NFC East with 0 games won, 0 tied and 1 lost. Their goal this season is to finish among the first 2 places in the group to obtain a ticket to the postseason.
The New York Giants' objective for this game is to be able to win as a visitor and thus get closer to their goal. It will be a complicated game but not impossible to win. Their last game was on September 10, 2023 and resulted in a 40-0 loss against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium. They arrive as the least favorites to win this match, however they could surprise and win.
