The Titans did nothing against the Pittsburgh Steelers and actually had to go to Kerry Collins at quarterback while the Giants were steamrolled in NFL lines against the Indianapolis Colts. One of these two teams is going to get to 2-1 after this contest while the other will be asking questions at 1-2.
The Giants are the home team and therefore they are favored at Sbg global. The odds maker doesn’t really know what to do with this game so they just made the Giants a generic three-point home favorite in NFL lines. If you look at the trends you will pretty much get the same story. The teams have split their eight previous meetings.
Last Three Meetings Averaged Almost 50 Points – The one thing that has happened when these two teams have played recently is that they have both scored a lot of points. That could easily happen again this time since the Giants have not shown they can stop anyone on defense. Chris Johnson could have a big day on Sunday.
Vince Young Still Starting – Tennessee head coach Jeff Fisher benched Vince Young in Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh but he said that Young will be back as the starter this week against the New York Giants. Young did not play well against the Steelers as he threw two interceptions but no quarterback plays well against Pittsburgh. Young was disappointed in being benched but so far he has not acted up as he did in the past. He will be starting on Sunday and against a New York defense that was shredded last week by Peyton Manning he could have a good day.
Chris Johnson Should Bounce Back – Johnson’s streak of 100 yards games ended last week at 12 against Pittsburgh. He should get right back on track against a rotten New York defense that couldn’t even slow down Joseph Addai or Donald Brown last week. The Titans had just 46 net rushing yards last week. Look for that to change against the Giants. The Titans turned it over seven times last week but they should have a lot better game against New York and have a chance to cover the 2010 NFL betting number.
