4. Victor Cruz Makes His Return:
The Giants star receiver is coming back according to all reports. Cruz even told the world about his return through a video for Bleacher Report. The Giants offense is starting to click and the return of Cruz could take it to the next level. I’m not sure how much we can really expect to see from Cruz in the first game he has played since week 6 of last season.
Cruz hasn’t taken a hit in a long time and no team is more physical than the Bills. The impact he makes against the Bills could be a statement that he is completely back. Cruz does most of his damage in the slot. This makes it really difficult to pay so much attention and man power to stopping Odell Beckham on the outside. Cruz is the missing piece to an offense that is going to get even better throughout the season.
Cruz could very well be the X-Factor in this game. If he does great the Bills will have a hard time covering all the Giants weapons despite being one of the most talented defenses in the NFL. But who is the Bills offensive X-factor…
