2. Saquon Barkley has a bounce-back performance with two TDs

Since returning from an ankle injury in Week 6, Saquon Barkley has been one of the Giants' most significant bright spots this season. He has quickly developed chemistry with the Giants' rookie quarterback on and off the field. The DeVito-Barkley duo connected for two receiving touchdowns in the Giants' win over the Commanders; however, he had a down week in Big Blue's most recent game over the Patriots.

Two weeks ago, Saquon rushed for 46 yards on 12 attempts and had one reception for six yards. While his performance did not necessarily jump out, his contributions and effort helped the Giants win their second straight. The hope is that the veteran can only build off this performance and stand out against the Packers.

After speaking with the media earlier this week, the two-time Pro Bowl running back left Big Blue Nation with some optimism, and it is pretty clear that he believes that this team has more to prove this season and has what it takes to earn a playoff spot.

I wouldn't be surprised if we saw No. 26 have a big performance on Monday and even have a similar performance to the showing he had against the Commanders. Giants fans will look for Barkley to stand by his words and contribute to another Giants victory, extending their win streak to three and keeping their playoff chances alive this season.
