The New England Patriots host the New York Giants on Thursday night looking to stay perfect following a 5-0 start. This is exactly what to expect…
The Giants (2-3) kicked off the year without any actual power, stumbling to losses at Dallas and at home against Buffalo with 38-year-old Eli Manning at the helm. Before Week Threes visit to Tampa Bay, rookie Daniel Jones was named the quarterback rookie and he has altered the complexion of the team.
Jones had a performance because they defeat the Bucs 32-31, also followed up it up with a win over Washington in his home debut. However, the Minnesota Vikings beat handily New York 28-10 last week.
The Super Bowl champion Patriots (5-0) have begun in dominant type, winning four games against Pittsburgh, Miami, New York (Jets) and Washington with scratching and ease a demanding 16-10 win in Buffalo.
New England possess a massive plus-121 point differential currently, 51 better compared to the group in minute (49ers, plus-70). Theyve scored the second-most points (155) and conceded the fewest (34). Bill Belichicks team looks unstoppable.
In Daniel Jones huge introduction, he showed why the Giants spent the first overall pick in this years NFL Draft on the former Duke QB. But, his passing yards (336-225-182) and passer rating (112.7-78.0-65.9) have dropped into every game.
Now, Jones faces the leagues best passing defense (only 160.4 yards per game enabled, zero touchdowns allowed, 11 interceptions forced, 44.0 passer rating against). How will he manage it?
2018 Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkleys aid will helps him – if hes able to generate a return from a high ankle sprain. But he has saidI do not know if I am playing on Thursday night because he attempts to recuperate in time.
Against the Redskins on Sunday, Tom Brady reached 71,923 career passing yards, passing Brett Favre to the third-most of almost any player in NFL history. He only 18 yards shy of Peyton Manning in minute. Brady has thrown 10 touchdowns and just two choices, and in 42 years old, the six-time Super Bowl winner is enjoying with some of his best football.
On every level, plays have been produced by the Pats on defense. Linebacker Jamie Collins is the sole player in the league with at least four sacks and a number of interceptions (three), safety Devin McCourty direct the league with four interceptions, and defensive lineman Chase Winovich is aiming for a third consecutive game with a sack.
