In his weekly start/sit column, The Washington Post’s Neil Greenberg uses TruMedia’s research tool and expected-points model to suggest starting the Giants defense this week…
“The Giants are a risky play most weeks but Sunday’s opponent, the cross-town New York Jets, are having a lot of difficulty on offense this season. The team is averaging less than a point per drive and has been forced to go three-and-out more than 47 percent of the time. Both are league lows. Over their past three games, Jets quarterbacks have been sacked 12 times and have thrown eight interceptions.
The Jets are also scoring 17 points per game fewer than expected after taking into account the down, distance and field position of each offensive play, per TruMedia. That’s the worst mark since 2002, the first year the league expanded to 32 teams.”
