New York Giants: Bills Will Test Toughness


The New York Giants got their first win of the season last week. The 1-2 Giants now take on the Buffalo Bills, determined to show that they are one of the toughest teams in the NFL.

The Bills are a physical team with a dominant front seven and a power running game with or without LeSean McCoy. The Bills really have taken on the larger than life persona of their new head coach Rex Ryan. That means no matter what happens on Sunday the Bills are going to attack the Giants relentlessly. This game is the toughness barometer Big Blue.

The offensive line has the biggest challenge in this game. After a surprisingly strong week 3 performance without Ereck Flowers the Giants have some confidence up front. The Bills are going to throw the kitchen sink at Eli Manning so the 5 men that make up the Giants offensive line must be prepared.

The Bills can come from anywhere and everywhere. There will be plenty of movement on their defense before the snap. Some of it is just window dressing, merely something for you to think about. The real objective is to get a numbers advantage on one side of the offensive line. The thing is the Bills often get the big plays from their defense.

Jerry Hughes and Mario Williams are a fearsome pass rushing duo that also stuff the run. Marcell Dareus is one of the most impressive defensive tackles in the game. The Bills are physical, fast and aggressive on defense.

Offensively the Bills depend heavily on their rushing attack. It looks like Karlos Williams is the running back for this contest. While it isn’t a bad thing to avoid McCoy, Williams is no slouch as a running back. The Giants run defense has been pretty good this season (one of the most pleasant surprises) but on Sunday we will really see how tough it is.
