4. Jason Pierre-Paul will record multiple sacks

After making his presence known last week in his 2015 debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pierre-Paul will record his first few sacks of the season on Sunday afternoon.

One of the more senior veterans on the Giants’ roster having been on the team since 2010, this is not the first time Pierre-Paul has faced the Patriots. It’s actually the third, as Pierre-Paul notched a sack of Brady in the 2011 regular season matchup between these foes that preceded Super Bowl XLVI.

Pierre-Paul will have success rushing on a Patriots’ offensive line that is dangerously thin at tackle. Sebastian Vollmer (concussion) and Marcus Cannon (toe) weren’t seen at practice on Wednesday, and although Cannon has a good chance of playing Sunday, the situation is still shaky.

Responding to Pierre-Pauls sacks will be the Patriots’ Chandler Jones, who will tackle Eli Manning and extend his league-leading sack total to 10.5 on the season.
