A historic rivalry resumes in Week 3 of the 2023 NFL season as the New York Giants (1-1) travel to the Bay area to play the San Francisco 49ers (2-0) on Thursday Night Football. The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. How is this even a rivalry? The Giants and 49ers have played each other 42 times, with both teams winning 21 games.
Last week, the Giants were down 20-0 to the Arizona Cardinals at halftime. Thanks to a huge second half from quarterback Daniel Jones, the Giants outscored the Cardinals 31-8 in the final two quarters to escape Arizona with a three-point victory. Meanwhile, San Francisco took care of business against the Los Angeles Rams, winning 30-23.
The 49ers are a huge 10-point favorite on FanDuel. Why is the spread so large? The Giants will be missing four starters due to injury – running back Saquon Barkley, left tackle Andrew Thomas, left guard Ben Bredeson, and linebacker Azeez Ojulari.
