The New York Football Giants come into this all-important Week 15 matchup only 1 game out of the playoffs, but a loss would eliminate them in the division. At 7-6, the Giants have put all the pressure they could want on themselves and even with a win they need some help to jump back into the playoff picture. Let’s break down the always tight NFC East and decide the Giants chances at a 5th straight post-season appearance:
Giants @ Redskins – Monday Night – 8:30ET
This one has upset written all over it, as the Redskins have played about the best 1-3 stretch you can play with losses to the Cowboys, Eagles and Saints by a combined 7 Points, but the Giants know how to win this time of year so I’ll go with the Giants 24-20 in a hard fought battle.
Cowboys @ Saints – Saturday Night – 8:20ET
The Cowboys are the Saints last real test, no offense to Tampa and Carolina, and I think the Saints are going to feel the pressure of the undefeated season more than they have all year. So, I am going to go with the upset, and take the Cowboys 37-31 in a wild one at the Superdome.
49ers @ Eagles – Sunday – 1:00ET
This one is a coin flip to me. Basically you have the Eagles who, as good as they have looked, is known for not showing up a few times a year, and call me crazy but after the smack these Niners just gave the defending NFC Champs, I’m going to go with the Eagles NOT winning their 5th straight in a 20 – 14 disappointment.
So, If my predictions come true we’ll be looking at a tie in first place at 9-5 between the ‘Boys and the ‘Birds with the Giants nipping at their heels and holding the tiebreak over Dallas.
