Falcons_own_nfc_south Posted September 18, 2015 Share Posted September 18, 2015 (edited) FALCONS VS. GIANTSAtlanta Falcons: The Giants are far from being a dominant team, but the fact that they host this game and are coming off a bad Week 1 loss against the Cowboys is bad news for the Falcons. There is some uncertainty about Julio Jones' status coming off a hamstring injury, which could affect the flow of the offense. Not to mention the Falcons have not had success on the road against the Giants, losing three in a row there, including a playoff loss. Although Eli Manning lacks his full stable of playmakers, the running game tandem of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams, who combined for 120 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Falcons last season, might be too much, even for an improved Falcons defense to overcome. Giants 24, Falcons 21. -- Vaughn McClure New York Giants: I expect the Giants' offense to function better this week than it did Week 1 in Dallas, especially if it can get the ball before the 11th minute of the game this time around. And I understand the Falcons are a lousy road team that's lost seven straight road games outside the NFC South (including one last year against the Giants). But I just don't have any faith in the Giants' ability to stop Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons' offense. The Giants pressured Tony Romo on just six of his 45 dropbacks last week (third-lowest percentage in the league), while Ryan was pressured by the Eagles on just three of his 37 dropbacks (lowest percentage in the league).Falcons 28, Giants 24. -- Dan Graziano Edited September 18, 2015 by falcon_owns_nfc_south Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
