Giant’s talented skill players vs. Falcon’s defense
Most teams have an advantage on the Atlanta Falcon’s defense, and that certainly is the case for New York.
As previously mentioned, Daniel Jones has no shortage of playmakers on his offense. Guys like Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Kyle Rudolph, Kadarius Toney, Saquon Barkley, and possibly Evan Engram.
Kenny Golladay and Saquon Barkley are the two guys that Dean Pees needs to focus on stopping.
While the two of them have not made as big of an impact as expected, they are still two of the most talented players in this league – especially Barkley. Saquon is still trying to make his way back from his knee injury and who knows how close he is to his previous self, but even a limited Saquon Barkley is a dangerous runner.
He has the power to run through most defenders, exceptional vision, ridiculous agility, and burst. He is a top-three running back in this league when he is healthy, at the very least.
Kenny Golladay was signed by the Giants after being with the Lions. He had a big game against Atlanta last year when we took on the Lions. He was much of the reason the Lions ended up winning that game and this defense needs to keep that from being a trend. With A.J. Terrell potentially missing the game, it is a tall task for this talent-deficient defense.
