Almost every prediction for tonight’s game between the Patriots and Giants leans in the defending champions’ favor. After all, Bill Belichick is leading an undefeated team against one that is depleted because of injuries.
While Tom Brady continues to shine at the age of 42, Daniel Jones is just learning how to play at the next level. He won his first two starts for the Giants, but his last performance wasn’t too flashy.
Not only does New England have the edge when it comes to experience, the AFC powerhouse is relatively healthy heading into this matchup. Phillip Dorsett is out due to a hamstring injury, yet Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon are expected to play.
The injury report for New York is currently filled with the team’s best playmakers. Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard have all been ruled out for tonight.
Since the Giants are huge underdogs entering Foxborough, the tabloids in New York are having fun with their headlines.
The New York Post had “Daniel vs. Goliath” as its headline.
As for the New York Daily News, it wrote “Dear Mr. Belichick, if there any compassion in your cold, cold heart, please, sir have mercy!”
