Tomorrow afternoon, the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers will face each other in an attempt to improve their position in the playoffs. The Steelers are riding a three-game winning streak after coming off a gut-wrenching loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.
To extend their winning streak to four games, they must figure out a way to rattle the Giants vaunted defense led by safety Landon Collins. In 2016, Collins is becoming one of the league premier players to watch on defense.
He will have his hands full trying to figure where Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will throw the football. You can expect Eli Manning to challenge the Steelers 23rd ranked defense against the pass throughout this entire ball game. They have the personnel to do that in wide receivers, Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Victor Cruz.
If the Steelers are going to win this ball game, they must keep those three individuals out of the end zone as much as possible. If they cannot, their offense must respond immediately to any offensive output by the Giants. If the Giants win this game, you can pencil them in as a playoff team this season.
They might lose another ball game, but they it will not hurt their chances of losing the projected 5th spot in the NFC Playoff Picture. My prediction for this football contest is that the Steelers will win their fourth consecutive game as they continue their pursuit of the NFC North Title.
