The 49ers play the Giants on Sunday at Candlestick. In the meantime, I’ll break down a couple of key matchups per day.
RT Anthony Davis vs. DE Justin Tuck
Tuck dominated this matchup last season, beating Davis for two sacks and five quarterback hurries in two games.
Now Tuck is 29 years old and he looks out of gas. He has zero sacks and only two QB hits through five games.
Davis, on the other hand, seems to be coming into his own. The 22-year old right tackle has not given up a single sack this season.
Davis did give up one QB hit and one QB hurry to Mario Williams last week, but Tuck is not as good as Williams right now.
I expect Anthony Davis to handle Tuck on Sunday.
