We’re going into Week 11 already which means there’s only six games remaining for most teams. It also means that the Pro Bowl voting is underway and will conclude on December 12.
The results will be announced on the NFL Network on December 17. For the record, the Pro Bowl game, which was scheduled to be played in Las Vegas on January 26, has been canceled do to COVID-19 restrictions.
So, that aside, how many (if any) New York Giants could be named this year? Let’s take a quick look.
The Giants knew they had a playmaker when they inked Blake Martinez to a three-year, $30 million free agent deal this past March.
Martinez has 384 tackles since 2016, second-most in the NFC, and he has performed up his contract thus far. He currently leads the NFL in tackles (96), with two sacks, seven tackles for a loss, three passes defensed, one interception, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
James Bradberry was also added in free agency (three years, $43.5 million) and has been nothing short of a lockdown corner for the Giants, who are still trying to find their identity on defense.
Bradberry is tied for the league lead with Tampa Bay’s Carlton Davis for the most passes defensed this season (14) and has three interceptions, 32 total tackles (26 solo), a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
The Giants could not sign Leonard Williams to a long-term deal, so they slapped the franchise tag on him to save face. Williams has responded with 34 total tackles, seven tackles for a loss including five sacks with 16 quarterback hits.
Williams has made no bones or beefs about his contract situation and has emerged as a true leader in the Giants’ locker room. Still just 26, the six-year veteran might just have some of his best football ahead of him.
Kevin Zeitler has been steady, just like he’s always been in his nine-year career.
A former first-round pick with Cincinnati, Zeitler has always been widely considered Pro Bowl-caliber but has never been tabbed. This could be the year even though the Giants’ offensive line has a sullied reputation. They’ve been getting better with each passing week, however.
The only drawback here could be Zeitler’s health. He left Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a concussion. The Giants have a bye, so it’s possible he doesn’t miss any time.
Graham Gano has been everything the Giants have needed him to be since parting ways with former Pro Bowler Aldrick Rosas.
Gano has made all 16 of his PATs this season and has connected on 21 of his 22 field goal attempts. He is 17-of-17 from under 49 yards out and 4-of-5 from over 50 yards with a long of 55.
Gano has connected on 20 consecutive field goal attempts as of this writing.
