In the past week, the Raiders have fired their head coach, general manager, and offensive coordinator. They’ve benched their starting quarterback in favor of rookie fourth-round pick Aidan O’Connell. And still, they’re the betting favorites against the Giants.
Daniel Jones will make his first start for the Giants since Week 5 after recovering from a neck injury. New York hopes he will jumpstart an offense that is averaging a league-worst 11.9 points per game. If the season ended today, that mark would be among the worst in NFL history.
This was supposed to be the week we saw Darren Waller make his return to Las Vegas, but he’ll be out with a hamstring injury. Still, we’ll get a matchup between Josh Jacobs and Saquon Barkley, two of the league’s top veteran running backs who are both playing on one-year deals. Barkley is coming off his best game of the season so far, in which he carried the ball 36 times for 128 yards. Jacobs, though, has yet to top 80 rushing yards in a game this year.
This will also be our first look at how defensive coordinator Wink Martindale deals with the loss of Leonard Williams, who was traded to the Seattle Seahawks this year. Who will be the team’s primary interior defender next to Dexter Lawrence? At this point in the season, the Giants are likely evaluating almost every player on their roster to determine who is part of their future.
The Giants are coming off a 13-10 loss to the New York Jets, returning to the L column just a week after their crucial second win of the season over the Washington Commanders. That leaves the Giants at just 2-6 heading into the official halfway point of the 2023-24 NFL season.
The Raiders represent one of their best opportunities to pick up another win. Las Vegas is coming off a 26-14 loss to the Detroit Lions, leaving them just 3-5 for the season, and they are undergoing a huge shakeup, including the firing of head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler.
The Giants (2-6) are coming off an embarrassing loss to their cross-town rival Jets, losing 13-10 in overtime. Big Blue had the ball with under a minute left, but a missed field goal led to the Jets driving down in the final seconds for a game-tying FG, before eventually winning the game in overtime.
It's been a carousel at quarterback for New York in recent weeks. Backup Tyrod Taylor had started the last three games with Daniel Jones out with a neck injury, but Taylor was hurt against the Jets and replaced by third-string Tommy DeVito. Luckily for the Giants, Jones has been cleared to return this week, hopefully providing the juice on offense the team needs.
The Raiders (3-5) are coming off a disappointing performance in primetime, as Las Vegas lost 26-14 to Detroit. QB Jimmy Garoppolo made his return from injury, but it was ugly, as the veteran QB completed less than half of his passes, was picked off once and held out of the end zone.
Stars on both teams were in trade rumors leading up to the deadline, as it was possible that Giants RB Saquon Barkley and Raiders WR Davante Adams could have been moved. However, the deadline passed by with neither the Giants nor the Raiders moving on from their talented offensive weapons.
However, there were personnel changes for Las Vegas' coaching staff and front office. Raiders owner Mark Davis cleaned house following Monday's loss, firing head coach Josh McDaniels, GM Dave Ziegler and OC Mick Lombardi. Antonio Pierce was promoted to interim head coach, while Champ Kelly is taking over general manager roles.
