2. NY’s defensive front needs to feast vs. the Vikings
The pass-rushing unit is the strongest position group on the Giants roster, and if they are going to have a chance at winning on Sunday, then the group needs to have a big game. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Dexter Lawrence, Leonard Williams and Azeez Ojulari have been a fantastic front four for the East Rutherford-based team.
Lawrence has been one of the best defensive tackles in the league this season and his Second Team All-Pro honor backs that up. With Thibodeaux, he has really stepped up his play in the second half of the campaign. People are still talking about his showing vs. the Washington Commanders at FedEx Field.
Meanwhile for Williams and Ojulari, they battled injuries this year, but both will be rockin’ on Sunday and will look to make Kirk Cousins’ life difficult. With so many questions for the Vikings offensive line – the Giants really have a shot at living in the backfield.
Right tackle Brian O’Neill is out with his season-ending Achilles injury, which leaves Minnesota in rough shape. NY will look to complicate things for the hosses from start to finish. Looking at Lawrence specifically, we think he’s about to have a monster day.
