The New York Giants are four games into the new season and for the first time in two years, they have reasons to smile.
After starting the season 0-2 following losses to the Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals, they are now 2-2 thanks to victories over the Houston Texans and Washington Redskins.
Their offense isn't looking as weak as it has in previous years - for that matter, during their last match, a 45-14 blow-out victory over the Redskins, their offense probably couldn't have looked better.
But there is one story circulating the Giants these days that despite starting as somewhat of a joke could be becoming quite serious.
Giants Cornerback Prince Amukamara is currently one of their best improved players this season and one of his team-mates feels it is because he is finally married.
As a devote Christian, Amukamara waited until marriage to have sex, and his team-mates seem to feel that the loss of virginity is what has inspired his sudden turn around.
Despite it escalating as a joke from their, there is one man in New York who when asked about the topic, had a less than comical reaction.
Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked about the issue in a Friday morning press conference and his reaction was quite stern.
As was reported on Twitter by Giants columnist Ralph Vacchiano, Coughlin replied with: "Stop it. I’m not answering that. Anybody have a legitimate question for me?"
Who knows if the matter is actually causing any form of rift in the Giants dressing room between the coaches and players, but clearly, its a touchy subject for Coughlin.
Giants standing tall
With the Giants currently with a record of 2-2, their two game win streak has come at the right time.
This weekend they face the Atlanta Falcons - another 2-2 team at the MetLife Stadium as they look to turn their record into a winning one.
A winning record could become very important on Sunday as the face trips to the Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys in the coming weeks.
