New York Giants: What impact the special teams unit will have this season

  To say Big Blue was wildly inconsistent last season would be an understatement. Their offense stalled at crucial points in games where Eli Manning had no choice but to force the ball to Odell Beckham Jr., and the defense could not penetrate the backfield for the life of Tom Quinn. But one area where the G-Men quietly flourished in 2015 was on special teams. According to footballoutsiders...
