This Monday night will be the first Monday night game of the 2011 season for the Saints. They will be facing the New York Giants in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. This game will be an interesting matchup, to say the least.
Both teams are in the race for their respective divisions and are talented enough to make a run in the playoffs if they get there. Both teams seem to be forgotten as legitimate NFC contenders and are not mentioned among the leagues best teams. Also, how could we ever forget that Eli Manning is a New Orleans native and will be making another homecoming this Monday night.
This game is surely going to show two talented football teams but will ultimately end in another showcase for the Saints, or, at least, that's what I have already predicted.
I fully expect the Saints to win this game, but there are a few key items I'll be watching.
Let's take a look at five things Saints fans should keep an eye on during Monday Night Football.
