Offensive Game Plan:

I know it sounds obvious but the Giants have to get Odell Beckham Jr. involved in this game. Just like Jones is a weapon in the open field for the Falcons, Beckham Jr. can do some damage. The Giants best offensive player is without question Beckham Jr. and they have to get him the ball. I don’t see a player on the Falcons defense who should be able to take away the second year receiver by themselves.

I want to see a heavy dose of the short pass in this game. I think this is a defense you can nickel and dime to death by stretching it out. The Eagles passed for 336 yards on the Falcons. They were able to move the ball they just didn’t capitalize on their opportunities to score. I want to see Beckham Jr., Rueben Randle and Shane Vereen eating up the short and intermediate passes. This will lead to big plays down the field.

For the Giants it is all about getting into sync as an offense. If they develop the rhythm this team is going to be awfully hard to stop. The short passing game will alleviate pressure on the offensive line. It will set up the deep passing game as well.
