TNF WEEK TWO
N.Y. GIANTS @ WASHINGTON WOOD CHOPPERS - 3.5 40.5 [O]
From the worst division in football comes a game that finds the home team 4-12 in their last 16 conference games, and winners of just one of their last five home games against the G-Men. Since 2016, these teams share nearly identical .500ish records in conference tilts.
WFT’s defense will have the upper hand against the injured and undermanned Giants offense. Daniel Jones fumbles too much and that might continue against a WFT front four that might be the NFL’s best.
Jones and the G-Men won’t get full strength efforts from Saquon Barkley, due to injury, and Danny Dimes will be under pressure all night, because the Giants O-Line looked mediocre at best against the Broncos last week--and all of last year...
Taylor Heineke has Terry McLauren and Logan Thomas who will test New Yorks secondary, along with Antonio Gibson in the run game—that combination should be more than enough to redeem the Choppers woeful record as a home favorite.
WFT just has too much talent at more positions on both sides of the ball—we won’t mention Joe Judge is 3- 0 against Washington and the NFC East is an unpredictable and fairly awful division
Should be a boring TNF match-up, but I’m betting on a Chase Young defensive touchdown win the game for the home team and take us Over the Number.
