Lions: 20  Giants: 28

Hey everybody, New York Giants Featured Columnist John Borgolini here to bring you everything you need for the week 6 matchup between the Detroit Lions and the New York Giants.

The Giants surprised everybody with their week 5 handling of the Houston Texans. It may have even been a surprise to some that the Giants even won the game, but nobody saw them winning in the dominant fashion that they did.

Hakeem Nicks has proven all Giants fans right with their preseason hype. Nicks showed flashes of brilliance last season, and this season he has been absolutely fantastic for the Giants.

The Lions are a team with a lot of potential talent that still has to find a comfort level. It is very possible that this team will surge late in the season, especially when Stafford comes back, but the playoffs are still out of the question for this season.

The Giants can't underestimate anyone, especially after their back-to-back losses to the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans, and this game will be a perfect example of this. With the always dangerous Calvin Johnson and the up-and-coming Jahvid Best, the Lions have a chance to make this game interesting.
