Mathias Kiwanuka of the NY Giants Could Have a Big Game

Jared KarlebachContributor IOctober 19, 2008

Mathias Kiwanuka is in a prime position to have a break out game.  Everyone knows that this New York Giants team should come out flying, especially the defense, who should feel embarrassed after their last performance.  That should mean increased pressure on the quarterback.

With that said, Justin Tuck should attract most of the attention. Fred Robbins will be his usual dominant self in the middle, and Barry Cofield will occupy some space as well.

That leaves Kiwanuka singled up on Joe Staley.  Kiwanuka has faced elite tackles all season from Joe Thomas, Orlando Pace, and Walter Jones.  This week it will not be an elite tackle, and that means all that Kiwanuka learned earlier this season should pay off and lead to a break out game.  Look for two sacks and a couple of hurries.

A quick side note, with rookie Bryan Kehl starting at linebacker, the giants could be looking at the future. This kid has looked good and everyone is high on him.  Good luck to Kehl!
