As much as some would like to point to injuries as the main cause for the New York Giants’ (3-5) inferior record, Big Blue will be facing an opponent in the Seattle Seahawks who have listed 14 players on their injury report.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has endured a season that he would like to forget, and the former All-Pro defensive end will miss his third straight contest with an injured shoulder this week. The G-men also placed veteran running back Brandon Jacobs on injured reserve on Wednesday, ending his season. The visiting Seattle Seahawks will be missing starting linebacker K.J. Wright as they seek to cement the top seed in the NFC playoffs.
