The New York Giants go for their second win of the season on Sunday afternoon, when the New Orleans Saints travel to MetLife Stadium. While the Giants are coming off a 27-22 win over the Houston Texans last week, the Saints are undoubtedly a better team. Let's take a look around the Internet to see what the experts are predicting for Big Blue’s Sunday afternoon matchup.
Saints: Ryan Van Bibber, Stephen White, Geoff Schwartz, Charles McDonald, Adam Stites, Christian D’Andrea
Saints: Mike Clay, Mike Golic, Dan Graziano, Mina Kimes, Louis Reddick, Kevin Seifert, Trey Wingo, Matt Bowen
Giants: Seth Wickersham, Molly Qerim
Very tough game to decipher. Typically, the Saints have played much better offensively in domes than out in the elements, and this will be their first game outside this season. The Giants finally put together a quality outing on both sides of the ball, even though they let the Texans squeak back into it last week. If New York can build a sizable lead again, as was the case in Week 3, Saquon Barkley becomes an invaluable asset. New Orleans has fared much worse defensively thus far than Houston has. However, if Drew Brees gets hot and the Giants fall behind, I worry about their ability to keep up. Pass protection is the source of the anxiety, in case you’re wondering. Last week, New York allowed J.J. Watt to record his first sack in two years ... then gave him two more.
The Saints are playing consecutive road games and the defense has been a major issue. The Giants seemed to find something on offense last week against the Texans. This will be a fun offensive show. At home, Giants take it.
Saints: Andrew Brandt, Albert Breer, Mitch Goldich, Jonathan Jones, Bette Marston, Mark Mravic, Jenny Vrentas
