    Main Storylines to Watch

    Does Daniel Jones play in Week 8 and is he the best option for the Giants at QB? The Giants paid Daniel Jones over the offseason to be their guy for years to come. It was a rough start to the season against a difficult group of opponents prior to Jones getting hurt. While the Giants offense has not put up big numbers since Jones went out, Tyrod Taylor has led these team to a 1-1 record when starting and the one loss was a close matchup with the Bills. When Jones is fully healthy, he will get the starting nod, but the Giants should not force him back if he’s not 100% healthy. Taylor has run the offense efficiently and kept this Giants team in games.

    Can the Jets build off of their Week 6 win over the Eagles and make a playoff run? The Jets have some impressive wins over the Eagles and the Bills. Their defense is a top unit in the league, but they need their offense to step up in order to put together a winning streak. The recipe for success is the defense dominating the game and giving the offense short fields to score on. If Zach Wilson avoids turnovers, this team should be able to stay around .500 all season.
