Saquon Barkley reaches a milestone.
On that opening drive, Saquon Barkley has become the fastest player who started their career with #Giants to reach 4,000 scrimmage yards (39 games)— Madelyn Burke (@MadelynBurke) December 5, 2021
With Daniel Jones already ruled out the line at DraftKings Sportsbook has moved all the to showing the Dolphins as 6.5-point favorites.
The 4-7 Giants have gone 3-2 in their last five games. The 5-7 Dolphins have won four straight after a 1-7 start.
