The Blue is averaging 30 points per game thus far, but they'll be hard-pressed to reach that number on Sunday. The Niners have given up only ten points in their last ten quarters. Ouch.

QB Alex Smith is the league's highest-rated passer. Their running attack is averaging over six-yards per carry. And how are the Giants going to handle TE Vernon Davis, who burned them on multiple occasions last year?
Do the Giants have a good enough defense - healthy enough defense - to hold down this balanced attack of the 49ers? Hold them down enough to compete in this game?
How do you see it?
