3. Saquon Barkley is coming off a big week at Washington

One thing the Giants will look forward to having on Sunday against the Patriots is their star running back, who is coming off a big week against the Commanders. Last week, Barkley had 83 yards on the ground and four receptions, two of which were touchdown passes from DeVito. As the game went on, the DeVito-Barkley duo displayed some chemistry that many G-Men fans did not know existed.

The team has put a lot of trust in the rookie quarterback to help lead the Giants throughout the remainder of the season, and a big reason for that has been the veteran running back. Barkley's presence on offense has helped DeVito, and Saquon has embraced the quarterback off the field.

We can expect DeVito to make an impact on offense for the Giants with the support of his teammates, but look out for Saquon to have another big performance against a struggling Patriots defense. I wouldn't be surprised if Barkley's contributions led Big Blue to a second straight victory for the first time this season.
