5.) James Cook

Last week was a performance to forget for James Cook. He ran the ball a season-low 5 times for -4 yards while adding on 3 catches for 25 yards. He had a true setback in which he will be looking to rebound. The Giants are giving up over 150 yards of rushing yards, 98 yards to a team’s true starting running back.

With the lack of run attack last week for Buffalo, the offense will look to get the running game going early to set the tone. Cook is due for a great game, with his last one being in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders who have struggled against the run throughout the season as well. 

With the Giants giving up so many yards on the ground this year, the Bills need to capitalize on that and let James “Cook” to help set up the pass. With that being said, in order for Cook to be successful, the offensive line will also need to win in the trenches and open holes to allow Cook to break free in the second and third level.
