No. 1 vs. No. 1 Sunday at Giants Stadium

College football has the perpetual question of who’s No. 1. Now so does Sunday’s Ravens-Giants game.

The Ravens are the NFL’s No. 1-ranked rushing defense. The Giants are the NFL’s No. 1-ranked rushing offense.

The Ravens have not allowed a 100-yard rusher in 28 games, the longest such active streak in the NFL. The Giants seem to have a different back, Brandon Jacobs or Derrick Ward or Ahmad Bradshaw, get the necessary yards.

There’s also the other question of No. 1’s. Giants quarterback Eli Manning, the former No. 1 overall pick, has been even steadier than last season. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, Baltimore’s No. 1 pick this year, has keyed his team’s turnaround.

Flacco has led the Ravens to one more victory this year than they had all of last year, and has not thrown an interception in 112 consecutive attempts. the Giants, with their top pass rush, aim to snap that streak.
