They got shellacked by the Colts on national television and saw their newest defensive import question the way they did things. Can the Giants survive a crisis and beat a team they should be able to handle at home?

The Titans have possibly the best running back in the league in Chris Johnson. Johnson rushed for more than 2,000 yards last season and you can be certain the Giants will focus more on run-prevention that they did last week. That will mean they are going to need big games from guys like Rocky Bernard, Chris Canty and Barry Cofield up front to keep Johnson from breaking past the line of scrimmage.

The Titans defense has been one of the league’s best, but they have also only faced Oakland and a Steelers team without its quarterback. Expect the Giants to go after this unit and possibly show some no-huddle sets to keep the Titans from rotating players.

The last time these two teams met the Giants blew a 21-0 lead with Vince Young leading the Titans all the way back and miraculously escaping a sack that would have ended the game. This time the Giants will get to face the Titans at home, but it won’t matter. The Giants defense has a lot to prove before they can be relied on, so the pick is Tennessee.
