After starting the season with a pair of narrow and crushing losses, New York got its first win of the season by man-handling the dysfunctional Washington Redskins in their 32-21 Week 2 win the last time out to cover the spread as a 3-point home favorite.
Eli Manning completed 22 of 32 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns while receivers Ruben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. each added seven catches and once score apiece.
New York is ranked ninth in scoring (26.0 ppg) and second against the run (74.7 ypg), but that may be because teams have been able to pass the ball against their defense with absolute ease this season. The Giants rank dead last in pass defense (335.7 ypg) while also ranking 24th in points allowed (24.0).

Buffalo has been very solid for the most part through three games of the Rex Ryan era. Buffalo bounced back nicely from their 40-32 Week 2 loss to New England to lay an emphatic 41-14 smackdown on underachieving Miami last weekend to cash in as a 1.5-point road dog.
The Bills are getting very good play at quarterback where first-time starter Tyrod Taylor. The former backup to Joe Flacco for four seasons in Baltimore, Taylor completed 21 of 29 passes against the Fins for 277 yards and three touchdowns.
For the season, Taylor has completed an insane 74.4 percent of his passes for 714 yards with seven TD passes and three interceptions.
With veteran running back LeSean McCoy nursing a hamstring injury since the preseason, rookie running back Karlos Williams has emerged and put up 110 rushing yards and one score against Miami on just 12 carries.
Buffalo is ranked first in rushing (152.7 ypg) and third in scoring (33.3 ppg) while also ranking first in run defense and 13th in points allowed (22.7).
