Monday Night Football. Who doesn't love it?

Even if your team isn't playing, you get to sit down and enjoy some football along with everyone else in America.

You can talk to anyone about the game the next day and everyone will know what you are talking about, especially when your team isn't playing, so that you can just enjoy the game instead of worrying about who's going to win.

However, for fans of the Rams or the Giants, they do have to worry about who is going to win. And the winner is anything but obvious.

The Rams are looking to be a very good up-and-coming team with Sam Bradford as a QB and Steven Jackson still at RB.

However, the Giants are still a very good team with that monstrous front four. And though Eli Manning didn't have a good game last week, they are a very hot-and-cold team. So you can expect them to come out hot, especially on prime time and at home.

I really like the Giants to win this one. They didn't show much against the Redskins, but the Rams are a weaker team, and they may be without Steven Jackson, which will be huge for Bradford and the Rams.

On top of those injuries, the Rams are going to be without Danny Amendola, who has been great for them as a jack-of-all-trades guy.

It's going to be tough for the Rams, but it is doable for them to pull out a win. It's going to require a big game from Bradford, especially if Steven Jackson is out.
