Giants Vs Patriots Week 10 Preview
I’m not going to sugar coat it, this is not going to be in an easy win for the Giants. The New England Patriots are playing some excellent ball right now. With that being said the Giants can keep up with any team. For this weeks preview we asked patriotsgab.com (twitter.com – PatriotsGab) to help break down this match up.
For The Pats
A Different Tom Brady.
The Giants are one-dimensional.
The Patriots offense is loaded.
For The G-Men
The New JPP D-Line
For the bulk of this season we have had minimal pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers we saw what life would be like with JPP back in the lineup. While his stat line did not look good, he was important because he made Jamies Winston feel uncomfortable in the pocket. The Patriots are shuffling the offensive lineup to help protect Tom Brady as they have given up 18 sacks this year. If the Giants plans to upset one way is to get to Tom Brady. Keep an eye up for JPP and Robert Ayers to cause some confusion.
Time of position
Numbers can be deceiving, looking at the Giants running statistics they are in the bottom half of the NFL. I would argue a nice portion of the Giants passing plays are quick passes to Shane Vereen and Rashad Jennings in the backfeild where they extended the play. While the Giants do not possess the “Bell Cow” running back they do have 4 fresh legged backs who share the work load. Using the four backs will keep the ball in our hands and out of Tom Brady’s.
No backing down.
The majority of the time the Patroits win the game even before it starts. Other teams may play scared or timid, not the Giants. This is not the case with Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin leading the charge. Now I can’t say or guarantee that we will win, but I know that we will bring a fight.
