Matchups

The big matchup of the day will be the Giants secondary vs. Larry Fitzgerald. So far Kevin Kolb is having difficulty picking up the Cardinals playbook and meshing with his new team, but has no trouble when it comes to getting Fitzgerald the ball. Arron Ross is having a resurgence after being benched earlier in the season and is showing why he was a first round pick and was an integral part to the Giants supper bowl run in 2007. He along with fellow defensive back Corry Webster will try to contain Fitzgerald look for Giants Defensive Coordinator to give safety help to whatever side of the field Fitzgerald lines up on. Osi Umenyiora is also back on the field for the first time this season maybe in an attempt to flash his skills again before the week six trade deadline alleviating any doubts about his knee. He and Jason Pierre Paul will try to apply constant pressure to Kolb in an attempt to help the DB’s contain Fitzgerald.

 

Prediction

Each week it seems more and more like the quality of the games is depreciating and we aren’t looking at the strengths of teams but rather if they can overcome injuries and weaknesses. Unfortunately this game comes down who has better chemistry, Eli will connect with Nicks and utilize the running game enough to eek out a W. Giants win 28-17
