McCaffrey ranks second in the league with 304 scrimmage yards and aims for his eighth consecutive game with a touchdown. He has a history of success against the Giants, with 221 scrimmage yards and a receiving touchdown in two previous meetings.

The Giants showcased their resilience in Week 2 by completing a jaw-dropping 21-point comeback, marking one of the franchise’s most memorable victories.
Quarterback Daniel Jones led the charge, demonstrating his prowess by completing 70.3% of his passes for 321 yards and two touchdowns.

In his quest for a third consecutive road start with over 300 passing yards, Jones looks to maintain his impressive Thursday night performance streak.
Running back Saquon Barkley, a force to be reckoned with, had a stellar Week 2 outing, amassing 92 scrimmage yards, including two touchdowns—one on the ground and one through the air. Barkley has a knack for finding the end zone in Thursday games, having scored a rushing touchdown in two out of three career appearances. Additionally, he has a history of success against the 49ers, with 100 scrimmage yards in their only prior meeting. Saquon Barkley will miss this week due to an ankle injury, leaving Matt Breida to start at running back.
Adding to the excitement, tight end Darren Waller is coming off a strong performance with six catches for 76 yards, while rookie receiver Jalin Hyatt led the team with 89 receiving yards. Watch out for Isaiah Hodgins, who aims for his third consecutive road game with a receiving touchdown.
On the defensive front, Dexter Lawrence and Bobby Okereke are primed to make an impact with their penchant for tackles and tackles for loss. Safety Jason Pinnock looks to continue his stellar play after setting career highs with 13 tackles and three tackles for loss in Week 2.
Cornerback Adoree’ Jackson is a key player to watch, aiming for his fourth consecutive road game with a pass defended. Jackson also had an impressive outing against the 49ers in his only prior meeting.
