Giants' zone has huge holes
The bye week comes at a good time for Big Blue, which has to solve big problems with its zone coverage.
With corners Will Allen and Will Peterson, the Big Blue secondary seems to play well enough in man coverage, but when they switch to zone they can't seem to find a receiver and stick with him.
Luckily for the Giants, they'll have an off week to work out the kinks in their zone. And the problem isn't that the pass D is giving up short completions, but rather large chunks of yardage. In the first three games, the Giants have given up 18 pass plays of at least 20 yards, and 15 of those have come in the last two games.
