Pros
  • The Titans are a 5.5-point favorite in this week's game, likely creating a rushing game script.
  • THE BLITZ projects the Tennessee Titans to be the 4th-most run-centric offense among all teams this week with a 48.5% run rate, given their underlying tendencies and matchup dynamics.
  • THE BLITZ projects Derrick Henry to total 24.1 rush attempts in this week's contest, on average, placing him in the 100th percentile among running backs.
  • The New York Giants linebackers rank as the 6th-worst group of LBs in football since the start of last season with their run defense.
  • The New York Giants have stacked the box versus opponents on just 11.4% of their plays since the start of last season, 4th-least in the league. Choosing not to position an extra defender close to the line of scrimmage improves pass defense at the expense of run-stopping.
Cons
  • THE BLITZ projects this game to play at the 11th-slowest pace out of all the games this week, averaging 27.34 seconds per play accounting for the tendencies of each team and game dynamics.
  • THE BLITZ projects Derrick Henry to be a less important option in his team's run game this week (78.3% projected Carry Share) than he has been since the start of last season (90.8% in games he has played).
  • The Tennessee Titans have gone up against a stacked the box on 26.4% of their plays since the start of last season, 2nd-most in football. Positioning an extra defender close to the line of scrimmage improves run-stopping at the cost of better passing efficiency.
