For the second time in three games, the Giants are in the national spotlight.
They’ll get a chance to prove their second-half comeback against the Cardinals — when they scored 31 points after a scoreless first half — wasn’t a fluke with their “Thursday Night Football” matchup against the 49ers.
The Giants won’t have running back Saquon Barkley, who is expected to miss multiple weeks after spraining his ankle in Arizona. They won’t have left tackle Andrew Thomas, either. But quarterback Daniel Jones will have an opportunity to build on his performance against the Cardinals, when he completed 26-of-37 passes for 321 yards and two touchdowns after struggling against the Cowboys in Week 1.
But Wink Martindale might have to unveil the perfect script defensively to contain 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, quarterback — and no longer Mr. Irrelevant — Brock Purdy, running back Christian McCaffrey, wideout Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle. Purdy still hasn’t lost a regular-season game since taking over as San Francisco’s starting signal-caller late in 2022.
