The strategy of rotating three tackles and soon-to-be three guards through the left side, right side and the bench completely bucks conventional norms, but the Giants’ offensive line issues have been so pronounced for so many years involving so many different players and coaches that maybe “Opposites Day” was the only stone left unturned.

“We’ve talked a lot about that internally, to be honest,” coach Joe Judge told the New York Post.
“Part of the reason may be it gives our guys a little bit of a breather and they’ve got fresher legs out there.
