Washington’s offense is ranked 11th in points per game while the Giants are 30th.
Thursday night’s Titans-Steelers game, set to kick off at 8:25 p.m. ET and air on NBC and NFL Network, also will be available via live stream through Amazon Prime Video. The uniqueness of the Color Rush uniforms worn by both teams might be trumped by that of the camera angle, as NBC plans to utilize its SkyCam system to present a new primary viewing angle for live game coverage.
The key for Thursday night’s game will be Pittsburgh’s offense against Tennessee’s defense. The Steelers enter Week 11 averaging 20.8 points per game, a disappointing 19th in the NFL. They have a chance to improve that average against a Titans team allowing 23.7 points per game, 22nd in the league. Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell leads the NFL with 840 rushing yards, and wide receiver Antonio Brown has a league-best 882 receiving yards along with 60 receptions, tied for the second-most in the NFL.
Remember, these are not the Browns. These are the Giants, a team that was picked by some experts to reach the Super Bowl this season.
These are the Giants that previously upset the favored Patriots in two Super Bowls; the Big Blue Wrecking Crew of Lawrence Taylor, Bill Parcells and Phil Simms; a team that has prided itself on defense from LT in the 1980s to Sam Huff in the ’50s; a franchise for which former defensive coaches include Bill Belichick and Tom Landry.
“They all proceeded, grim-faced, to the team bus after the latest in a season saturated with embarrassing moments — 49ers 31, Giants 21 on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium. When Giants coach Ben McAdoo got to the bus, he was admitted on board without incident. Same for general manager Jerry Reese, who declined to speak to reporters when asked on his way out of the locker room.
