Saints: 5 Giants who can ruin Week 4
By Kristen Wong
Finally, home at last. The New Orleans Saints will take on the New York Giants at the Caesar’s Superdome on Sunday, marking the first time the Superdome will be filled to capacity in almost two years.
Saints fans, let ’em hear it.
The Giants may already be at a team morale low after losing back-to-back games on final play field goals. Defense-wise, New Orleans have the clear upper hand. This year’s Giants’ defense ranks 21st in total yardage, having given up over 400 yards in each of their first two games and forcing only two turnovers.
They could learn a thing or two from New Orleans’ defensive playbook. The Saints’ D has been killing it in the past three weeks (well, Week 2 left something to be desired) and luckily hasn’t suffered any more injuries to its starters.
On offense, though, the Giants have a handful of players who could do some harm against the Saints, despite their defense’s dominant form.
New York is winless to start the season, but that could change in Week 4.
We saw New Orleans flounder against a surprisingly tough Carolina team, so opponents know the Saints’ defense has flaws. They just have to exploit them.
The Giants may be in a rut now, but recent history shows they bounce back better than most New York started 0-5 last year before winning five of seven games to become a worthy competitor in the NFC East race.
No doubt the Giants are ravenous for their first win, and the Saints will have to be extra careful — and keep an extra close eye on these players.
Here are five Giants who could ruin Week 4 for New Orleans.
