Matchups

 

Matt Moore/J.P.Losman: Sage Rosenfels was put on the non-football injury list today making way for the signing of ex-Bills starter J.P. Losman. Losman will now compete with Matte Moore. So with the limited time the Giants will probably face Moore but he was thrust into the position after Chad Henne went down due to injury. We will see if either QB has enough chemistry and experience to challenge the Giants secondary.

 

Webster Vs. Marshal: Brandon Marshal is the large physical receiver that causes problems for DB’s Webster has done well this year defending receivers like Marshal but as Marshal is the Dolphins only real threat Webster will likely be thrown at the majority of the game.

 

Prince Amukamara Vs. His Foot and Inexperience: Prince Missed all but one day of training camp due to the lock out and a broken foot, which also caused him to miss games and practices until yesterday when the Giants took the field for practice. We will see him for the first time in limit action this weekend, but it will give us an idea of the severity of the injury and its lingering effets.

 

Jake Long Vs. Osi, Tuck, and J.P.P: Long may be one of the best tackles in the NFL but for the first time this season all three of the Giants feared pass rushers will be on the field. With a green QB taking snaps behind him his job will be all the more difficult with the waves of pressure the Giants can bring.

 

Prediction

 

After a crushing loss to Denver in the last 3 minutes of the game Miami has a lot of reasons to get up for this game, but the worrisome situation at QB in addition to the pass rush and improved health of the Giants is too much for them. Giants win 24 to 3.
