PREVIEW AND PREDICTION:
The 5-8 Giants welcome in Marcus Mariota and the 7-6 Tennessee Titans to East Rutherford New Jersey with playoff hopes on the line for both teams. The Titans are battling with the Colts and Texans for the division and a wildcard spot in the AFC South. The Giants on the other hand have a slim window with no safety net as they need to win out and need every team to loose once except the Vikings who would need to loose twice.
With the news that Eli Manning will most likely to be back in 2019, Big blue will be playing with out Odell Beckham Jr today and will put the focus without Saquon Barkley who arguably might be the best running back in the NFL during a five week span.
Eli Manning has only one win in the three meetings against the Titans the lone win being in 2014 when the Giants won 36-7. Eli was 26-42 for 260 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
With the rain going in and out through out the day, look for Barkley to get a lot of touches and Eli to spread the ball around. When Barkley has over 20 carries the Giants are 3-0.
Barkley has rushed for over 100 yards over the last 4 games and are 2-1 when he rushes over 120 yards this season.
Which Titans team will show up?
I am going to go with a close game 24-20 Giants over the Titans!
