Justin Pugh, Left Guard
Boy oh boy, did the Giants miss Justin Pugh. The former first rounder missed five games before returning to action against the Detroit Lions, and his impact was clearly felt: The Giants rushed for 114 yards against a strong Lions defensive unit. Conversely, Detroit could only manage 56.
Pugh’s Pro Bowl stock might take a hit due to his extended absence (and the fact that New York went 4-1 without him), but he still has a chance, and it is worth noting that he is, by far, the best and most consistent member of the Giants offensive line.
