    With the spot light, the stake is higher now...
    The line just shift 1 pt, NYG +13.5.
    Do you think either NE or NYG can be happy about this?

    They could have just a quiet preseason-like affair...

    No I don't expect a tough game. It is funny that some people are talking as if the Giants actually have a chance if they try. Why would the Giants lay it all on the line just to be humiliated by the best team in the NFL right before the playoffs? Playing the Patriots would do wonders for Eli’s confidence if they wipe the floor with him and as he is the worst NFL starting QB, which is just what will happen if he plays. The Giants probably have a better chance playing backups any way. The Giants have to worry about TB who they might have a chance to beat.

    I do not think the players care about the line movement at all.

    Unless we are talking about players on offshore books, that is another story. I will have to confess I did load up on -13.5 early Sunday night because I was afraid of lateral movement, which did occur, but I didn't want to chance it not coming back down....

    Which side are you on pal?

    In front of a national audience, Giants players may try harder, slamming Tom Brady on the turf for example... even for just a half.

    Once the adrenalin flows... who knows.

    I consider the NYG and Redskins as very similar in talent teams, even with different styles. And we beat the Skin 52-7, so am not to worried even if NYG "tries", i.e. not resting their starters.

    I don't think the outcome of the game. or how it's played, is going to have a thing to do with the size of the TV audience

    I never want to bet against Pats... I only do game analysis. But some folks I know are very good at picking underdogs especially at home. They passed this game because it was insignificant. (They would have taken the Giants had they lost to the Bills).

    The line means nothing to the players. But with national spot light, there is pride involved, raising risks of unnecessary injuries.

    It's the NFL and every game is tough!

    The Pats have better talent and the weather should be ideal for a late season, night game. However, anything can happen.

    I think the Pats have a good chance ;)

    What part do you disagree with and why? Am I missing something on Eli? He is rated as the 27th best QB playing today.

    I don't doubt that players are, they are professionals.

    But Giants fans are split into two camps too, and Tom Coughlin is also torn.

    I hope the Pats will be up so quickly in the 1st Q and 1/2 of 2nd (e. g. 21-3) that TC will pull everyone out.

    I think the Pats will be happy do same and not rub it in.

    Washington is a more talented team then the Giants, Washington's problem was their QB Cambell, he put the ball on the turf for what 4 TOs and i think we got points off all of them.

    That being said the Giants are not much better off with Eli especially without Buress who will not play period.

    A fact. The Giants have the 14th scoring offense and the 14th scoring defense. The Patriots have the 1st scoring offense and the 2nd scoring defense.

    Fantasy time for you. It will end soon enough though. It is a shame that you can’t objectively view your team. Yea that’s it, garbage time. With a 10 -5 record they have lots of garbage time. It must have been all that garbage time in that 3 point victory over the dolphins.

    I guess no other teams had garbage time this year

    Everybody keeps talking about backup's playing...

    let's roll w/ that idea and assume throughout the second half it will be correct on both sides regardless of score.

    Who do you want on your team, fat boy, Pillsbury Throw Boy, Hefty Lefty Jared Lorenzen or Matt Cassel??

    You are right. Historically the Patriots have been had some trouble by Joe Blow QBs who no one expected. Eli is like am extra special gift wrapped present under the tree.

    I have always been a person who thinks that any team can beat any other team. However I just don't think that the G-Men have what it takes to beat the Pats. In fact I think the Pats will score early and often. The G-men may get some throw away TDs at the end but the Pats will be 16-0

    You lost 5 games so far. You lost to the Cowboys by 10 and 11 while the Patriots beat them by 21. You lost to the Redskins once by 12 and won once by 7. We beat the Redskins by 45 points. Now who did you beat that the Patriots lost to this year?

    Hey JSK: Anyone can say anything without consequence.

    You are proud of your team just like any fan, but let me ask you this: if you have to bet your hard earn $ on the outcome, do you really believe in your stuffs?

    I am NOT encouraging you to bet. It's only hypothetical, because nothing make people more rational than when it hurts their pocket book.

    BTW, I have pals who are Giants fans too and they don't think like you, especially about your QB.

    Motivation alone cannot overcome the gap in talent level.
    Eli Manning is not going to win this game for the Giants.
    Instead the key is for the Giants defense to play the best they can and try to pressure Brady.
    The Giants also need to try to win the time of possession battle and keep the Pats O of the field.

    I just don't see all these things happening.
    The Pats are going to win this one handily, and if Eli throws a couple of picks, this game could get ugly fast.
