The Giants will play two games in a span of five days this week, as they face the Vikings Sunday afternoon and then the Patriots on Thursday night.
This five day stretch will be one of the biggest tests in rookie QB Daniel Jones' early career, not only because of the time crunch at hand, but also due to the level of play that take place on those fields.
Both the Vikings and Patriots hold Top 6 defenses in the early goings this season, and the Giants will already be without Saquon Barkley for yet another game due to a high ankle sprain he suffered a few weeks back.
Daniel Jones will finally get to throw to a new set of hands this week, as Golden Tate makes his season debut Sunday after sitting out the first four games due to suspension--but his inclusion doesn't entirely fulfill the hole left in the Giants' offense without Barkley.
Sunday's game with the Vikings will certainly put Jones into his most high pressured start to date.
"He hasn't faced a defense like this," Vacchiano said. "This is a defense that is going to blitz him a lot, they're going to have a lot of confusing coverages, things that he definitely hasn't seen before, and you can bet tha he's going to be put on the run a lot. The Giants are counting that his mobility will allow him to make a lot of plays, especially down the field."
