Stop Saquon Barkley
The Giants run the football a lot, and they do it as one of the best teams in the NFL. Currently, the Giants are ranked third in run offense and 22nd in scoring offense. The Lions’ defensive line must show up on Sunday, or they will lose the game.

Lions, do not shoot yourself in the foot on Sunday.
Force QB Daniel Jones to Pass
The Giants are good in many statistical categories except in the passing game. They are ranked 28th in passing yards, with only 128 per game.
Just like they did against the Bears, the Lions must force the Giants to give the football and win the game.
The Lions are a team that can score early on any team in the National Football League. They must score early on the Giants and force them to get away from the run game.
If the Lions have a lead and the Giants start to pass more, the Lions can win the game.
Run The Football
The Detroit Lions have to run the football and stick to the run game.
The Giants’ defense is the 24th ranked run defense in the NFL. The Lions have a top-ten run offense with running backs D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams. Use these backs as the primary weapons on offense.
