New York Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh will start at right tackle for Eli Manning when they take on the Broncos in Denver on ‘Sunday Night Football.’
In their latest desperate attempt to keep quarterback Eli Manning alive through what is quickly becoming a lost season, the Giants will be starting Justin Pugh outside at right tackle against the Denver Broncos tonight.
According to Jordan Raanan at ESPN, the Giants are very concerned with Bobby Hart playing against Von Miller, which shouldn’t come as a surprise since Miller is very good as a pass rusher and Hart is very bad as a blocker.
Raanan noted that Hart struggled significantly against Joey Bosa of the Chargers last week. Pugh has struggled at tackle in the past, but he can provide more of a challenge to Miller than Hart would have been able to.
John Jerry will slide from right guard over to Pugh’s left guard position, while D.J. Fluker will take over at right guard. Additionally, Weston Richburg remains out, meaning Brett Jones will start at center for the second straight week.
