The first half saw a heavy dose of Saquon Barkley. This was likely by design. Coach Pat Shurmur had conceded that maybe he could've run the ball more in the first half of the season. So Barkley had 15 carries for 53 yards in the first half as the Giants trail 13-10 at halftime. Barkley's career high is 18 carries and he hasn't reached 15 since Week 5 against Carolina. He's set to crush that in that game.

"At this point, all games will kickoff as scheduled," per an NFL league spokesman. Air Quality Index (AQI) is a measurement that is used as part of the decision-making process to determine if the conditions are safe.
