Seems to support a lot of the "conventional wisdom" and "strategizing" that has gone on here this week, especially the conclusion that it will be a close game.

Both teams are used to rushing for significantly more yards than either team's defense is used to allowing.

Big plays kept the Giants pass defense from being even worse statistically. They rank above average in sacks & interceptions.

If 'Skins win - or just push - in the turn over battle, you have to like their chances.
