After a brief moment of hope sparked by rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, the Giants have gone right back into the tank for 2019. New York has lost their last three games by a combined 45 points, including a home loss to Arizona in Week 7. At 2-5 with a -55 point differential, it is fair to consider the Giants out of the playoffs for 2019, even though they are only two games back in the division. They are 29th in adjusted net yards per pass attempt, and allow the seventh-most adjusted net yards per pass attempt on the defensive end. The Giants are also still without Sterling Shepard as he recovers from a concussion. Passing games have feasted on Big Blue numerous times this year, and Detroit looks to be in good position to do the same.

Speaking of that Detroit passing game, it is coming off of an incredible performance against the Vikings, who entered the week ranked eighth in Football Outsiders pass defense DVOA. Matthew Stafford had 354 yards and four touchdowns. All four touchdowns went to Marvin Jones. Detroit is second in the NFL in average depth of target at 10.3, which is a perfect match to dice up the Giants pass defense. The Bucs, first in aDOT, went for 380 yards passing and three scores against New York earlier this year. The Lions are sixth in adjusted net yards per pass attempt.
