WABillsfan's Pick Justifications:
Giants- While the Pats will not as poorly as they did against the Ravens. The giants pass D is better. The Pats D cannot stop 3 wide outs formations very well as seen in our games against them. And only Stevie could play on the giants from our WR corps. Giants win a bloody knuckle contest played out on a world stage. I expect the Pats to come out blitzing in an effort to get Eli off rhythm early unlike the 49ers who did not get to him early enough in their game with the Giants to screw him up passing wise. Hit him hard and early and Eli plays different, the only issue is, the Pats can't pass rush well at all. They blitz, Eli will carve them up alllllll day long, which he will.
Ron's Pick Justifications:
I'm taking the Giants in the polar opposite of the game we saw several years ago. The Giants secondary wont stop the Patriots tight ends and the Patriots defense will be taken to school by the giants' wide receivers. This may actually hit overtime if the last possession in regulation only ties the game instead of winning it.....though I expect a game winning score of some kind with only a few seconds in regulation. Giants 51 Patriots 49
Kurupt's Pick Justifications:
Patriots-I really don't want either team to win so I'll just pick who I think will win and that is the pats unfortunately.
Krytime's Pick Justifications:
Patriots- I think the Patriots are scum sucking soul sellers to the Devil. How else can you explain Brady's & Belicheats good fortune? A roster with 18 street FAs making the SB? Come on...
Everyone you talk to loves the Giants in this game. And when you look at every phase of the game, there is no way the Pats should win. It's almost unbelievable they're 2.5/3/3.5 favorites depending on where you look. I'm going with the Colin Cowherd way of thinking here, and picking the Pats to win with ease.
For entertainment purposes only, I'd tease or parlay the Pats and the under, depending of course how strongly you feel about New England. And I'm also really rooting for a score that ends in "8s".
Joe P.'s Pick Justifications:
Giants - The Giants have a franchise QB, a strong Oline, and a Dline that can rush the passer.....what a radical idea!!!!
Poz's Pick Justifications:
Giants- Giants all the way. They are hot, their receivers are too good for the Pats secondary, and the defensive line will throw Tom Brady around. Giants running game will get going. Should be a fun game.
Silverstreak's Pick Justifications:
Giants- Gotta go Giants, although i dislike both teams. I like the giants
front 7 against the pats. i like that eli should be able to shred the
secondary. i like that the only team the pats beat with a winning
record was last week and that was by some luck. i like the giants,
and ill enjoy the game more if they blow out the pats, but that
probably wont happen. have i mentioned i hate the pats?
