1. Ahmad Bradshaw
The stat that stuck out the most to me from Houston's week 1 win over the Colts was that the Colts allowed 257 yards on the ground. Undrafted Arian Foster piled up 231 yards and 3 touchdowns on 33 carries, good for 7 yards a carry. If Bradshaw, Jacobs and the Giants' rushing game are not able to put up significant yardage, we will learn a lot about the state of the Giants' offensive line.
2. Aaron Ross
This one is a little tricky, because while Ross is expected to play Sunday night's game, we just don't know how his foot will fair. Whether or not Ross is able to play at full speed could be a determining factor. Last week, Peyton Manning completed 40 of 57 passes for 433 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions. He is known to spread the ball around and look for mismatches in the defense; both Austin Collie and Dallas Clark had 11 receptions, and Reggie Wayne, Joseph Addai and Pierre Garcon chipped in with a combined 16 receptions for 171 yards. If Ross is not in the game, Peyton will pick on Bruce Johnson or whatever other mismatch he identifies.
3. Justin Tuck
The Giants' defensive line finally got it going against the Panthers in the second half, registering 4 sacks. Osi Umenyiora and Mathias Kiwanuka both looked in top form, wreaking havoc on Matt Moore. But curiously missing from the stat sheet was Justin Tuck, who failed to record a sack. That's not to say he had a bad game; he almost had Jimmy Clausen wrapped up in the end zone for a safety, but he let him get away. With Tuck fully healthy, it's time for him to dominate like he did in Super Bowl 42, as Peyton Manning will pick apart any defense if given time.
