Matchup Advantage #3: NY Giants’ cornerbacks vs. Denver Broncos Receivers

This matchup is strength vs. strength. The Broncos have one of the better WR duos in the NFL Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. The receivers didn’t have much of a chance to play together last season because 2019 Pro-Bowl WR Sutton tore his ACL in week 2. Jeudy was a top 10 pick in 2020 and is already regarded as one of the NFL’s best route runners.

The duo is dangerous, but the Big Blue matches up well with the pair. James Bradberry was an All-Pro sub in 2020, and he shuts down big-bodied receivers like Sutton in his sleep. Ask Allen Robinson or DK Metcalf what it is like going up vs. Bradberry. Sutton is 6’4″ and excels at making contested catches, but Bradberry does best against those types of receivers.

What about Jeudy? The Alabama product wins with quickness and route running. Adoree’ Jackson was signed as a free agent to match up with those kinds of receivers. Jackson ran a faster 40 time than Jeudy (4.39 vs. 4.46) and has the agility to stay close to the shifty pass catcher.

If the Giants are able to contain the Broncos’ most dangerous weapons, then they could live with Teddy Bridgewater relying on his 3rd and 4th options.
