The Big Red Wolf Report: After the Chargers, before the Giants

Sep 11, 2014, 1:05 AM | Updated: 6:11 pm

The Arizona Cardinals are getting ready to hit the road in Week 2 of the NFL season. They travel to New York to play the 0-1 Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

There is only one key to this game: don’t let Eli Manning get on track.

Last week, Manning threw two interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 53.

This week, Manning is going to have to throw the ball in order to put points on the scoreboard. But he hasn’t been getting much help. Protection wasn’t great, receivers weren’t getting open and the rushing game was all but non-existent.

With the Cardinals’ secondary performing very well against the Chargers on Monday, Todd Bowles should feel very confident in his players matching up against the Giants’ receivers.

I have a hard time seeing the Giants coming out on top this week, but just remember — don’t let Eli Manning get on track.
