Jason Pinnock, safety, New York Giants
Safety Jason Pinnock's interception/pick-six touchdown in Week 5 versus the Dolphins represents one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the Giants. Their offensive line is terrible, their defense misses tackles, and key players such as Jones and running back Saquon Barkley are nursing injuries.
Pinnock's 22 solo tackles are tied for second on the Giants. The third-year defensive back is coming off one of his best games as a pro as he also had a forced fumble versus Miami. If New York is without their starting quarterback this week, the defense has added pressure to keep them in their upcoming game.
The Giants are facing a dynamic offense led by Josh Allen. However, the Buffalo playmaker is prone to turnovers. If New York's defense is able to put sustained pressure on the Bills' quarterback, it could lead to him making mistakes.
The Giants' primary chance at keeping this game close is their defense putting consistent pressure on Allen, limiting the Bills' offensive chances, and causing turnovers. Pinnock made plays last week against a great Dolphins offense. He will need to do so again to help out his club on Sunday Night Football.
Prediction for Pinnock - three solo tackles, one fumble recovery
