The New York Giants take their broken hearts to East Rutherford to take some vengeance out on the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons look like a brand new team in the Dan Quinn era. The defense stifled Chip Kelly’s Eagles in the first Monday Night Football game of the season. Can the Giants take down the new look Atlanta Falcons?
One thing that hasn’t changed is the Falcons field general. Matt Ryan is still a very capable quarterback with really good weapons in the electrifying Julio Jones and the dependable Roddy White. The Giants secondary is going to be put to the test in this game. The Giants need to get a great pass rush going to neutralize the mismatches in the passing game.
The Giants offense hoped to be one of the most high-flying units in football. Manning showed flashes of brilliance against the Cowboys but passed for less than 200 yards. The offense showed an ability to run the football but didn’t give their rushers many opportunities. Can the Giants get the job done against a revamped Falcons defense?
