2. WR Terry McLaurin

Terry McLaurin, also known as “Scary Terry,” is going to see a lot of rookie cornerback Deonte Banks on Sunday. Giants cornerback Adoree’ Jackson suffered a neck injury in the team’s most recent loss to the Bills on Sunday Night Football and has been limited in practice since.

Banks has fared well against some of the best receivers in the NFL this season and will have yet another tough task in Week 7 facing off against McLaurin. McLaurin has had 1,000-plus receiving yards in three straight seasons and is pacing to come up just shy of making it a fourth consecutive season as things stand.

McLaurin has established himself as one of the most consistent and respected receivers in the NFL for his elite combination of route running and ability to make contested catches. Throughout his career, McLaurin’s had Big Blue’s number. Per ESPN’s Commanders reporter John Keim, McLaurin has eclipsed 100 receiving yards in three of seven games he’s played against the G-Men and gone over 70 yards in all seven games.

Scary Terry is a big play waiting to happen and has taken a liking to seeing the Giants on the schedule twice a year. With that in mind, defensive coordinator Wink Martindale needs to make sure to keep McLaurin in mind when dialing up a game plan.
