We have ourselves a winning streak! The last time the New York Giants strung together consecutive wins was the four-week span from Oct. 7 to Oct. 28 of last season. Now, exactly one year later, the Giants are once again winners of multiple games in a row, and the best part is that Giants fans now have an extra week to bask in the soft, warm glow of victory.
Nevermind the fact that the two wins the Giants have picked up in the last eight days have been perhaps two of the ugliest wins in the history of the National Football League. A win is a win, especially when you're 0-6 and desperate for something positive to hang your hat on.
Nonetheless, there is still plenty of work to be done, as Tom Coughlin will tell you (and anyone else watching these last two games). So here are five of the most important things the Giants need to work on during this bye week to prepare for their return in Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders.
