4. Damontre Moore Must Step Up
Damontre Moore is an exciting player for the Giants with a lot of potential. He has great pass rushing abilities but has struggled against the run and isn’t a very disciplined player which leads him to make mistakes.
This has made the team wary of making him an every down defensive end. That has changed now with injuries to Robert Ayers and Mathias Kiwanuka which have forced the Giants to rely on Moore to rise to the occasion and become the complete player the Giants have hoped he can become.
Moore must be able to take some pressure off of Jason Pierre-Paul and help cause havoc in the Titans backfield against a struggling, banged up Zach Mettenberger. A good pass rush will cause Mettenberger to make mistakes which will make life much easier on the entire Giants team and be a key factor if the Giants wish to win.
