@TylerWigington: Do you expect to see all the young cornerbacks bounce back after a frustrating loss against the Raiders? Does Drew Brees have a chance to break the tie with Peyton Manning for most 400-yard passing games against the Giants?

JD: The answer to the first question is, they’d better. The saying is that cornerbacks have to have a short memory, and the confidence seemed to be in place this week. But let’s be real, too – the Giants have a great quarterback (Eli Manning), a star receiver (Odell Beckham Jr.), a returning receiver who was a standout (Victor Cruz) and a highly regarded rookie (Sterling Shepard). It’s not an easy bounce-back game, but they have to be up to the challenge in order for the Saints to win. As for Brees posting his 15th 400-yard passing game, it seems that he’s capable of almost anything on any given Sunday. Most of his best days have been in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but the Saints might need that kind of game from him against the Giants. Weather may play a factor; if it’s yucky outside (the forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain), it may prohibit some of the things that can be done in the passing game.
