1. Get Saquon Barkley going

The Giants are 4-0 when Saquon scores. They're 1-6 when he doesn't find the end zone. Obviously, Barkley's the best offensive weapon this team has and teams notice that as soon as they turn on film every week. The plan is simple, but executing it is a different story.

The Giants offensive line didn't give Barkley anything to work with against the Saints. Aside from a spectacular one-handed catch in the first quarter, Barkley was shut down. The run game in general was snuffed out immediately and that's how it remained for the rest of the game.

It's going to be another huge test for the Giants as they go up against Philadelphia's stout defense. However, getting their star running back into a groove early and putting the ball in his hands will do wonders to hopefully lift the Giants to an upset victory.
