Giants’ keys to vic­tory

Jaguars

The Giants have lacked a suc­cess­ful ground game for quite some time, so rookie RB Saquon Barkley will help boost their rush­ing at­tack and es­tab­lish play-ac­tion, al­low­ing Odell Beck­ham Jr., Ster­ling Shep­ard and Evan En­gram to open the field for QB Eli Man­ning. With so many elite play­mak­ers, it be­comes a “pick your poi­son” sce­nario for the Jaguars.

Jaguars’ keys to vic­tory

The Giants have sev­eral no­tice­able weak­nesses, in­clud­ing a shaky right side of the of­fen­sive line, an­chored by RG Patrick Omameh and RT Ereck Flow­ers. If Jack­sonville can col­lapse the right side of the line and keep pres­sure on the quar­ter­back, the Jaguars are bound to cre­ate mis­takes and force turnovers. On of­fense, Jack­sonville should also look to ex­pose the Giants over the mid­dle of the field, where their lineback­ers are no­to­ri­ously poor in cov­er­age. It should be a con­sid­er­able ad­van­tage for RB Leonard Four­nette and com­pany.

Who wins?

In Tom Cough­lin’s first re­turn to East Rutherford on the op­pos­ing side­line as ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of foot­ball op­er­a­tions, his team will do what it had done con­sis­tently for a decade: win. Un­for­tu­nately for the Giants, he’s no longer their coach and his lat­est vic­tory will put New York in a 0-1 hole to start the reg­u­lar sea­son. But it won’t come easy.
