After an up-and-down but mostly down first 13 weeks of the season, the New Orleans Saints will finally have it mercifully end at MetLife Stadium.
After struggling through a miserable 0-4 start, the Saints lent hope to their fans by winning four of their next five games, but issues that have plagued them all season finally caught up in the past two weeks.
In what has been a roller-coaster season after the controversial BountyGate involving Gregg Williams and Sean Payton, the Saints have not been the same. They've played poorly on defense all year and even their vaunted offense has struggled at times.
Meanwhile the Giants are also going through a rough patch in which Eli Manning has not played well. After their Monday night loss to Robert Griffin III and the Redskins, the Giants are only one game ahead of the Dallas Cowboys and 'Skins in the NFC East.
The Giants will keep pace this weekend while ending any realistic chance the Saints have to get back to the playoffs.
