Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: New York Giants vs. Tennessee Titans
Sunday, September 11, 2022 4:25 PM
Play: Point Spread: +6/-115 New York Giants
This is a Free play on the Giants. If you use a simple method of calculating last year’s records to determine strength of schedule for the upcoming season, there are only three teams who have an easier schedule than the Giants. The four easiest schedules belong to the four teams that make up the NFC East. Playing in the weakest division in the league allows plenty of opportunity for the Giants to improve on last season’s record. The #5 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft Kayvon Thibodeaux comes highly touted out of Oregon. He had been projected to go even higher, and the Giants were lucky to get him with their 5th pick. Playing opposite Azeez Ojulari the duo should terrorize opposing quarterbacks in the coming season. The Giants haven’t had a player with at least 12 sacks since 2014, but that is expected to change here in 2022. The Titans are the reigning AFC South champions after going 12-5 last season, but they might be due to take a step back in 2022. Six of their 12 wins last year came by three points or less, and for much of the season, it felt like they were getting it done with smoke and mirrors. They are thin at wide receiver after trading A.J. Brown to the Eagles and releasing Julio Jones. Brown led the team in receiving yards in each of the last three seasons, leaving big shoes to fill for rookie wideout Treylon Burks drafted #18 in the first round out of Arkansas. The Titans invested heavily in their offensive line when they made Taylor Lewan the highest-paid lineman in the NFL back in 2018. As is often the case, he never really lived up to the lofty expectations after securing the bag. Tennessee is projected to have one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL this season. Pro Football Focus ranked the Titans 27th in pass-blocking with a 54.3 grade, but ranked them closer to the middle of the pack in run blocking. Not one of the Titans offensive linemen ranked in the NFL’s top 10 in pass-block or run-block win rate last year. Despite winning the division and making the playoffs last season, Ryan Tannehill took a major step back. He threw for 33 TDs and just seven INTs in 2020, posting a passer rating of 106.5. He threw twice as many INTs (14) in 2021, and threw just 21 TD passes with a passer rating of 89.6. His numbers have been trending in the wrong direction since posting a passer rating of 117.5 in 2019, his first season in Tennessee. With a younger and less experienced receiving corps, an inferior offensive line and a star running back coming off an injury-riddled season, he could be in for a world of hurt in 2022. I am going to suggest taking the points here with the Giants in Week 1. GL, Jesse Schule
