The Giants are back home to host a bruised and battered San Francisco 49ers team that may or may not be spooked by the MetLife Stadium field, which some members of the team blamed for the rash of injuries that rocked the Niners on both sides of the ball.
The Giants? Well, they have their own injury problems. They'll be without running back Saquon Barkley for the rest of the season after losing him to a torn ACL on Soldier Field's grass field while receiver Sterling Shepard may or may not return this year after suffering turf toe on the same grass field.
But for Joe Judge's Giants, seeking their first win in this new era of Giants football, the show must go on. The Giants are coming off a very encouraging second half of football last week against the Bears in which the defense shut out Chicago. At the same time, the offense scored 13 unanswered points only to run out of time in completing what would have been a stirring comeback.
What will this week hold for the Fighting Joe Judges?

Goal to Go: Resiliency
“I don't know if I've been 0-2 before, but I was 2-4 last year, and I was in the AFC Championship. If you have a strong locker room, if you have strong leaders, if you have guys that love to play ball and love to practice hard, you can dig yourself out of some holes.” -- Defensive back Logan Ryan
