The New York Giants continued their impressive start to the 2022 season by rallying from a two-score deficit to grab a win against the Green Bay Packers.

NFL Week 6 Preview: New York Giants vs Baltimore Ravens
With their come-from-behind impressive victory over the Packers, the Giants improved to 4-1 and kept paced in the tightly packed NFC East. New York’s defense held Aaron Rodgers and the Pack scoreless in the second half en route to the comeback win.
Saquon Barkley continued his career resurgence in what’s been his best season since his rookie campaign. Barkley’s 533 rushing yards ranks second in the NFL and leads the NFC. He’s registered three rushing touchdowns as well, but faces a Baltimore rush defense ranked 12th in the league, surrendering 108 rushing-yards-per-game.
New York struggled to consistently run the ball against the Packers last week, gaining 125 yards on 31 attempts. But the Giants still sport the league’s second-best ground game, averaging 179 rushing yards-per-game thus far.
The Ravens come to this contest following a 19-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football last week. Baltimore sports a 3-2 record and a 2-2-1 mark against the spread. Cincinnati’s defense held Lamar Jackson largely in check, limiting him to 174 passing yards and 58 rushing yards (his lowest since Week 1), with one passing touchdown and one interception.
The Ravens have dominated NFC competition in recent years, going 13-2 over their last 15 games versus inter-conference opponents. Lamar Jackson enters this one 12-0 all-time as a starter against NFC teams.
Bettors should keep a close eye on the injury reports before wagering on this game. Both teams come to this contest a little banged up and pivotal players remain limited practice participants through mid-week.
