Following the NY Giants' preseason Week 2 win against the Panthers, Big Blue is set to face off against their inter-stadium rivals the Jets. This game will cap off both teams' preseasons and finally send them into the regular season.

With the success we saw from the Giants against the Panthers, it's only reasonable to expect another victory in Week 3. The Jets may be a better opponent than Carolina, but it's still the preseason and the Giants depth will be ready to impress. With that said, here are our bold predictions for the contest, with Aaron Rodgers set to make his debut for Gang Green:

4. The NY Giants will have a receiver surpass 70 yards

Despite having a fairly successful pass attack through their first two preseason games, the Giants have yet to see a receiver surpass 50 yards. However, we think that Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka are going to be much more aggressive this week which could lead to a big-time game from one of the Giants' receivers. Could 70 be on the way for someone?

Who knows which receiver will be the one to surpass 70 yards, but we're confident it will happen. Whether it's Jalin Hyatt off of a couple deep passes, Darren Waller if he plays, or someone unexpected, we're hopeful for someone to have a massive game right before the regular season arrives.

It's unknown if Daniel Jones will play or not, but we do know Tyrod Taylor and Tommy DeVito will take the field this week. Jones was brilliant last week vs. the Panthers, completing 8-of-9 passes for 69 yards and a touchdown in his lone series.

To make things even better, the Jets have a pretty weak secondary in terms of depth. While they have some elite guys like Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed, once you look past them, it gets pretty rough. Hopefully, Daboll and Kafka notice this and take advantage of it in order to pull out a preseason finale win.
