What is the Most important match up for Thursday night

I think the most important matchup Thursday night is our defense facing their offense on third down.

Anyone that has watched Eli for any amount of time during the last few years knows that he relies on a slant from the slot on third down quite often.

Anyone that has watched the panthers for any amount of time knows that third down is not a historical strong suit for the defense.

Granted, the giants may not run the slant every third down, it is still pivotal to make them punt. Stopping a team on third down is key in any game, but I think Thursday night's third down defense will be the biggest determining factor.

Thoughts?

As difficult as it is to pin down any one thing, since getting completely whipped in any one area of the game will lose it for you, I would put equal emphasis on the two line matchups. It will be key to win that matchup on both sides of the ball to avoid a situation where a coin-toss "who has the ball last" kinda game is the best possible outcome.

I think their WR's vs our DB's in going to he a battle that whoever wins this battle, will determine the winner or loser of the game....

Thing is if our D-Line wins trenches vs their O-Line we can make their WRs less effective and help out the DBs (forcing rushed / errant throws is not a bad way to make DBs look good with line play...). Our DBs will have to be on point but if you have to pick one the line should be the direction you go. Best DBs in the league can't cover good receivers forever - there has to be a functional line there.

Without question the trenches.

Our OL has to limit their pass rush

We need to put Eli on the ground, a lot.

You can say OL vs DL about every game. Football is won and lost in the trenches.

I think the most important match-up Thursday Night is the Giants vs. the Panthers.
